Vegan Taste Test | Vegan Chicken | Vegan Snickers | Vegan Sliders | Collab with Hellthy Junkfood

Candice and James are back with another Vegan Taste test. This time they are live in the Hellthy Junkfood kitchen with JP & Julia.


JP and Julia have very little experience with vegan food so they are perfect for this taste test. The first vegan food on the taste test menu is a product called “Dandies” claiming to be all natural pumpkin flavored vegan marshmallows. JP states that the product looks like a glass bowl full of teeth. The lads dive in head first and find that the vegan marshmallows definitely live up to their expectations. Once James and JP finally take the plunge as well they clearly state that these vegan alternatives to the classic marshmallow are a dead ringer. They taste just like the real thing. In other words if you’re a vegan that happens to be a fan of marshmallows you need to be sure to have some Dandies on hand.

The next product to undergo the rigorous taste test was a vegan candy bar called Jokerz that claims to be the vegan version of a Snickers bar. That is quite a claim to make as Snickers is truly a de facto standard in the world of candy bars. Candice states that it definitely looks like chocolate, caramel and nougat. As soon as James and JP get their first bite it’s clear that this is another winner, with JP even going so far as to say “You had me at hello”. Candice and Julia state that they should really just call it a Snickers. It looks and tastes almost exactly like a Snickers bar, but it’s vegan. JP rates it at a 7 out of 10, James gives it a full 10, and the ladies both give it a 10 out of 10. This is yet another product vegans with a sweet tooth need to keep on hand.

The next product tested was the Ramune carbonated soft drink originally sold in Japan that made it’s way around the world due to it’s unique flavor and somewhat gimmicky opening technique. Unlike a typical soft drink where you simply pull the tab, with a Ramune drink you pull a piece of plastic off the top and then press it back down on the top of the drink until it pops. The crew figured it out in no time flat and found the results to be interesting. Candice seemed especially taken by the rattling sound that happens when you shake the bottle after it’s been opened. Everyone agreed that it was good, JP claimed it tasted just like cream soda and gave it a 10 out of 10. As far as carbonated vegan soft drinks go you won’t be disappointed with a Ramune.

Next up was the Beyond Chicken Lightly Seasoned Strips. This is the epitome of vegan chicken. It looks exactly like real chicken, complete with grill marks as though it had just been barbecued. Julia found herself a bit confused at how it could be possible that this vegan chicken was not real meat. JP also stated it tasted exactly like real chicken. Candice has not had chicken in 7 years so it was difficult for her to weigh in on the look and texture but she seemed to enjoy the flavor quite a bit as well. Julia called it the best vegan protein that she has ever tried. JP rated it at 8 out of 10, James gave it a 9 out of 10 and the ladies both gave it a straight 10 out of 10. For all of you vegans out there craving a real chicken experience this is the product for you.

The last product on the taste test list is the Beastly Sliders. Julia and Candice agree that it looks like a burger but JP doesn’t agree. The entire taste test crew do overwhelmingly agree that these sliders are not the worst they have ever had, but are certainly not the best. The final verdict regarding the Beastly Sliders is definitely mixed so I wouldn’t go out of my way to pick them up unless you’re just dying for a vegan slider and willing to compromise a little.

Special thanks to JP & Julia from the Hellthy Junkfood channel!
