    because i love you, i am letting you know this…

    there is a limited release batch of the croissants i was so gleefully trying out yesterday available RIGHT NOW at doomie’s. vegan croissants are next to impossible to come by, and i promise these are really good. at the moment, they will only be available for the rest of the night…and maybe tomorrow. my advice is to HUSTLE TO DOOMIE’S FOR CROISSANTS…NOW!

    so rich and “buttery,” you honestly won’t know what to do with it.

    oh, and in case you need any more motivation, doomie’s is running a special for tonight on a croissant sandwich:

    ON SPECIAL RIGHT NOW!! Fresh Baked Croissant Sandwich!! Chicken with Basil Cashew Pesto Mayo topped with Balsamic and Coarse Sea Salt Roasted Tomatoes and Baby Spring Greens. Yes, we baked the Croissants today! Hurry up and get it with Fries or Fruit for JUST $7.95!!

    GO GET IT!

  • I find it very confusing and gross when vegan soy or seitan products are called “chicken” or “beef” or whatever. It’s gross. the above picture of the sandwich looks like real chicken then the caption also says chicken. I am a vegan but for non-vegans I feel this reinforces their ideas that vegans just wish they were eating chicken and that it is sooo good it just has to be imitated. when in fact it is not chicken and is nothing like chicken and should not be called chicken.

  • Regrettably I just got off work at 10:30 p so I guess i missed out on the croissants but we delivered a fresh batch of jackfruit tamales to Fig Produce today qg.

  • why do I get the sad face all the time. I’m happy right now!

  • i agree.. i don’t miss meat at all and the usual response i hear from meat-eaters when they try ‘chicken’ or ‘beef’ is that it’s a lame comparison. instead of trying to imitate the taste of cooked animals we should try to embrace the flavors of tofu, tempeh, and seitan in more interesting ways!

  • Looking good but.. I prefer mine with apricot jam… and Garfield strength coffee! Luckily in Barcelona they are in most health food shops so I get to eat them everyday! Might have to try experimenting with new fillings though… Maybe some tempeh “bacun,” and melting cheezely mozz… ;~)

  • Just to let you know – Groupon has a deal for Souley Vegan in Oakland – half off – I think it was $12 for $25 worth of grub. Spread the word, and then post some pics for me to drool over – we can’t get that kind of food in Connecticut 🙁

  • OMG a croissant sandwich; now I’ve seen everything. Except combos; can someone veganize combos?

  • Looks amazing! As far as people having a problem with vegan food being called by the animal names, I see your point. How will we know the flavors of “chicken salad” or mock tuna salad for example. They look the same. Not downing your suggestion, just wondering because the flavors of mock meats are different.

  • HAHA sometimes I think vegans just have to find something to complain about. Ive been vegan for almost 4 years now and you know what, the reason I eat fake meat at all is because I LIKED THE TASTE OF MEAT…. do i think its awful to eat real meat, OF COURSE!! Do I think everyone should be vegan? OF COURSE!! But seriously… if we all didnt at some point ENJOY the taste of meat then people wouldnt try so hard to imitate it. Just my two cents…bring on the hysteria..

  • Exactly, I grew up on a meat and cheese diet, and although I love what our community has to offer, I still miss the food of my childhood. I became a vegan out of ethics, not because I don’t like the taste of it.

  • But chicken IS soooo good that is has to be imitated. I made a choice not to eat it anymore, but it’s not my fault it happens to have a delicious flavor to it.

  • With respect to the whole “chicken” thing, to the extent that we care about other people becoming vegans, there are two types of people in the world – those who think that animals taste good, and those who don’t. You don’t have to worry too much about those who don’t; they’ll at least be vegetarian, and maybe vegan, based on their own taste preferences. That leaves the tough crowd – those who, whatever their moral beliefs, really like the taste of animal foods. And if you want to get THEM on board, you’d better have substitutes of the foods they like. You’re not going to convince ’em that kale tastes better than Chicken McNuggets.

    Conclusion? Suck it up and deal with the annoyance/discomfort the names cause you; it’s for a greater good.

  • Well said.
