I had high hopes for this product. I brought it over to my parents and threw it on a toasted bun while they ate BBQ pork.It was absolutely terrible. I even read the reviews before purchasing and thought I might be able to salvage it. I added my own BBQ sauce (copious amounts), but it wouldn't cut through the vinegar taste. The actual Jackfruit wasn't cut well and in no way mimed shredded anything. It's awesome that companies are trying to appeal to vegans, so I commend the company for trying. But they should probably go back to the drawing board when it comes to the sauce.
We love this stuff!

We were so surprised to see the poor ratings here!! We've found the chili-lime locally, then recently tried the BBQ-flavor during some travels, and love them both. Not to vinegar-y my my opinion.. even the husband who doesn't like vinegar in anything is crazy about this stuff.. The shreds definitely aren't super consistent, but it doesn't bother me or my husband. I guess an important note is that we are vegans who like our "meat-like" foods not too meat-like! Similar texture is as much as I can take. But we will be buying lots of this and will be splurging on the 2lb bags even! :)

Just as I was about to order this on line, I found it at my local co-op. I was excited to try this product but I have to agree with some of the other reviewers here. The texture of the jackfruit was fine but the inconsistent cuts, mixing cuts with shreds took a bit away from the product. The worst thing for me though was the overwhelming vinegar flavor and lack of sweetness in the sauce. Even used in a soft tortilla shell with avocado and spinach that vinegar was hard to get past. So, while it's great for convenience, I think the recipe could use some adjusting.
Great!...but needs better cooking instructions.

I really enjoyed both flavors, but after reading some of the other comments I feel like Upton's may need to update their cooking instructions on the box. It says 1-2 minutes, but in order to get the texture I was looking for I let it go closer to 5-7 (maybe more) and I fork-split the larger chunks. I also added a little bit of sugar and cayenne to the BBQ because I prefer a sweeter and spicier sauce. I think my longer cook time may have reduced the acid in the vinegar too.
BBQ Tasted Sour
From Anonymous of New York, New York on 12/29/2015.
I was excited to get some BBQ Jackfruit in this month's Vegan Cuts box, but quite disappointed when I tasted it for the first time today. Texture was good but... rather than the tangy, slightly sweet BBQ flavor hoped for, it just tasted sour, almost gross. (It's supposedly shelf-stable but perhaps didn't travel well in the Veganbox.) Nonetheless, I'm going to try the Chili Lime Carnitas Jackfruit next and am hoping it'll taste better.
