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

Tamales MUY BUENO!
From Jill of Burlington, Iowa on .
When you come from a smaller area where Vegan food in your favortie restaurant is a foreign language, you look long and hard for replacements for your cravings. Well look no further for your Mexican fix. These have a very full, nicely spiced flavor. I did find them just ever so slightly dry (steamed) but just top with your favorite sauce - guacamole (my fav), salsa, taco sauce, pico de gallo... or even just nice juicy avocados or tomatoes!
From Deborah Perez of Los Angeles, California on .
Don't understand how these could be dry! These were delicious and moist! Definitely worth ordering!
From Vanessa Strange of Menasha, Wisconsin on .
I really enjoyed these, will be a regular reorder. Great flavor, yummy texture, a great addition to a vegan diet!

Not dry at all when prepared properly. Delicious!
From Anonymous of Chicago, Illinois on .
These are best steamed, but I've had pretty good results microwaving them in the bag for a minute and a half too. Excellent with salsa verde, vegan cheese or chipotle Vegenaise.
