Tofurky Deli Slices, Peppered
First of all, I started out with some homemade sandwich bread, because that's what I had. This bread was pretty dense, which definitely had an effect on some of the results, so I ended up tasting each lunchmeat both as part of the sandwich and alone. I also had, on all three parts, a thin layer of mayo, some lettuce, and a slice of tomato. If I was going to call this a mega sandwich, it had to be serious.
For the first segment, I used Peppered Tofurky Deli Slices with some swiss cheese. I started each segment out with one piece of each deli slice. When I took a bite of this segment, I tasted the bread, lettuce, tomato, and pepper. Now, this wan't a huge surprise, as it does claim to be peppered, but I did sort of hope to taste something other than pepper. I thought that maybe the rest of the ingredients were drowning out other flavors, so I tasted the fake meat on its own. Alone, it was VERY peppery, with not much else going on. I'm really not a fan of lots of black pepper, so I really didn't like this one. I suspect that if other people like to eat their pepper in lunchmeat format, they'd really dig this, but it's not for me.
Meanwhile, for those of you into this sort of thing, have a great Christmas! And for those of you not into it, have a great weekend!
Texture - Sort of a dry-lunchmeat-turkey texture. Reasonable in a sandwich, not great alone.
Flavor - PEPPER!
Final grade for this attempt: D
