Would you like Fry’s with that?
This is going to be controversial but it needs to be announced… Fry’s Vegetarian products are the ultimate faux-meats available on the global market. I can’t take them fighting words back.
Fry Food Group is a company owned and operated by Debbie and Wally Fry. They create a huge range of meat-free foods and in my opinion are unmatched for quality, range and taste. The company operates an eco-friendly production facility in South Africa where they promote best environmental practice such as employing people who walk to work and the installation of a water treatment system. Debbie and Wally are committed vegetarians and all of their scrumptious products are certified vegan. Cue the food. You know you want to.
The Fry’s range is impressive and daunting. When faced with a store freezer full of their finery it can be a hard task narrowing down your selection. My all time favourites have to be the Chicken-Style Nuggets and Traditional Sausages. Both items are superb and probably the best store-bought meat substitutes I have tasted. Other items to savour include Original Hot Dogs, Golden Crumbed Schnitzel, Traditional Burgers, Slicing Sausage and Beef Style Strips. I could go on. The photo above shows a snack I created using the Chicken-style Strips, Blue Dragon vegan Sweet Chilli Dipping Sauce and the plain, vegan bagels from the New York Bakery Co™. I scattered some leftover Daiya Cheddar Style Shreds on top for good measure. The strips were succulent and soaked up the sauce beautifully.
If you want vegan food from a compassionate and forward-thinking family company, get acquainted with Fry’s Vegetarian as soon as possible. You will be delighted, I promise.
p.s. I have seen Fry’s on sale in Australia and the UK. I have heard reports of USA sightings.
p.p.s. The chicken-style strips are featured due to a reader request. If you would like to see me feature a product, leave a comment below or on Twitter.
we are sooooooo lucky to have these at one store in LA, figueroa produce. <3 i can't believe how good these products are.
They are remarkable. Try popping the sausages onto wooden skewers, battering them and deep-frying. Glory!

I absolutely love the Fry’s chicken-style strips with a glug of Sweet Chilli Dipping Sauce: just make sure to fry it in the pan so it starts to catch and caramelise a little. I work for Blue Dragon, so was already a convert – I like to serve my Fry’s along with some stir fried veggies (with vegetarian oyster sauce or ketjap manis) and brown rice. totally lush.
