1. Our system has changed slightly for cold
products - as of this time, when you add the first refrigerated or
frozen item to your order, one Cold Pack Insulated Shipper will be
automatically added to your shopping cart as well. If you do
NOT wish to have this cold shipper added to keep your items cool
and better protected from heat during shipping, you may click the
small trash can/delete icon to the right of the item and it will be
removed from your order. However, if you choose to remove
this from your order, we are not responsible if the items do not
arrive in satisfactory condition, so only remove the cold shipper
if you are 100% certain that you are willing to accept the risk of

Taste like cardboard
From Anonymous of Pensacola, Florida on 11/14/2014.
I used the Nate's Zesty Italian meatballs in my homemade spaghetti sauce and they were terrible. Tasted like cardboard - there was nothing zesty about them - completely flavorless. Yuck. What a huge disappointment.
My favorite vegan meatballs!
From Amy Bergmann of Richmond, Virginia on 8/6/2014.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Nate's vegan meatballs (esp. zesty Italian), and yet stores where I live have been discontinuing them! I thought the manufacturer might have stopped making them (as seems to happen with all my vegan faves), but then I saw them here. Please Vegan Essentials, keep carrying these--they are so, so, so good!
delicious and quick
From Richard Rankin of La Plata, Missouri on 9/9/2013.
These are terrific. They microwave in a minute and even heated like that, have a good texture and a great taste. I tried the zesty Italian flavor and would happily eat these again and again. Made a terrific sandwich, and I wasn't really a meatball fan pre-vegan.
From Cherrie Mayer of Longview, Washington on 3/20/2013.
If I find these anywhere I buy them!!! I think there's a mushroom flavor as well (not on this website), but any flavor I've tried has been great!! And my kids, who often don't care for for veggie meatballs, absolutely LOVE these!!
They are great!
From Anonymous of Superior, Wisconsin on 2/19/2013.
Local restaurant (Pizza Luce) serves these as a vegetarian substitute with their spaghetti. A lot of my meat eating friends prefer these to the traditional meatballs.
