I have and I really didn't like them. They taste like dog food.

Fry's Soya (available at The Health Shop and others) is really excellent quality! and delicious! Been having them for years now, think they really outdo the competition.

Myself and the OH made a trip to Newry yesterday to stock up on veggie stuff. Our freezer is kinda overflowing now. Anyways - it's well worth a visit. Not necessarily cheaper up there but the choice is unbelievable.

Went to Sainsbury's first and got:
Linda McCartney cheese and onion pastry plaits
Quorn pasties
Quorn pepperoni slices (these were so nice that my beloved ate the entire pack in the car on the way home. What a sight! - hahaahah)
Quorn turkey and stuffing slices
Sainsbury's own brand hot dogs, chicken burgers, sausages (these were very cheap). And from the sainsbury's 'taste the difference' range, I got butternut squash bakes and goats cheese in some tomato crumb thing.
Cauldron aduki bean bakes.

Off to Tesco's in Banbridge where we picked up:
Linda Mccartney prawns. (I was not a fan of these. Taste far too fishy for me but great for people that miss seafood).
Quorn ocean pie - AMAZING
Tesco hot dogs - also fabulous.
Mushroom burgers
Cheese and leek sausages (sometimes you can get these in the ROI)
Barley and chickpea gumbo

Get yourselves up north folks. The selection is crap down here compared to up there.

I just picked up some stuff in Sainsbury Sprucefield last weekend after the non-event of the cricket. Delighted to hear the Pepperoni is good, got similar stuff to you, but also the Linda McCartney Rosemary sausages which i haven't seen down here.

Next time I'm bringing a big freezer bag with me!

Decided to swing by Sainsbury's Sprucefield after visiting the Titanic exhibit and I was astonished by the bounty of veggie fodder available; it really puts us to shame down here.

Among the haul were:

-Cauldron Moroccan Kiev
-Quorn Mexican Chilli
-Sainsbury's Mushroom and Spinach Bakes
-Sainsbury's Nut Cutlets
-Quorn Cottage Pie
-Quorn Pepperoni Slices
-Quorn Light Pieces
-Quorn Smoked Lime & CHilli Burgers
-Sainsbury's Sweetflamed Pepper and Goat's Cheese Bake

Thus far, I've only tried the pepperoni slices and I was pleasantly surprised; they really capture the 'kick'!

I'll have to try the Italian ones so. I can't believe how bad the original ones are, absolute shocker. My cat ate them though! The only thing I miss about eating meat is eating sausages, I find all the veggies ones so so dry. Anyone find one that is moist or tips for keeping them moist while cooking? I saw a recipe in Simon Rimmer's book for sausages and he used lancashire cheese, has anyone seen that on sale in Dublin? Thanks

Have you ever tried Redwood sausages? Many health shop stock them (the HopSack for example ) and they are absolutely delicious!
The also have Tivall frankfurters but they are a bit pricey
