>Now I know that  a lot of people hate Whole Foods but I figured that vegans gotta stick together and Daiya is amazing stuff so why not let everyone know?

Dude, who hates Whole Foods? It's one of a handful of the most wonderful places on earth.

Also, you beat Wheatsville. Congrats!

Haha...I know.  I feel like I'm up against the world when I say that.  I just don't buy the hype.

I'm a Portland transplant..EVERYONE hates Whole Foods in Portland. But PDX is The Good Vegan Afterlife. I'm just used to all the haters. :P

Nah! Wheatsville has Vegan Mac N Cheese with broccoli,hempseeds in bulk and the happiest baked goods case. Thats a big whack upside the Whole Food head. If only they had Daiya for their Frito Pie. Oh snap! Throwdown! happy

Well, everyone in Austin hates Portland. So I guess we're even. And besides, Whole Foods is an Austin business.

No, Whole Foods has Daiya. Therefore, Whole Foods is better. The End.

Me too. I get some dirty Wheatsville lovin' on the side. And when Austin isn't looking, I fantasize about Portland then stalk him on the internet. :P

Will it be a regular thing? Or did someone have to request it? Do you know?

It is a regular thing, kind of. We need to update our menu. You can request a personal pizza from us which is 5 bucks and ask for Daiya *sigh* Unfortunately not a lot of the pizza makers are vegan conscious so they are still doing the  plain sauce spinach and random veggies. (I don't know why they hate it.Poo!) Some of them do bust out pizzas with the Daiya, so you can order by the slice instead. I'm still training but once I have a night to myself, by god, I will have pizzas with Daiya that aren't so ho hum.

I don't know who requested it but damn, what a wonderful surprise it was to me.
( I work @ 6th and Lamar)

steve, i didn't ask if it was a regular thing.  they actually also had the mock chicken salad in the deli counter too, which as far as i know has only been available at the lamar location.  but then again, i honestly hadn't looked at the deli counter at the arboretum location in about 6 months, so these things that are new to me, might not actually be so new:-) maybe based on sales at the lamar location, the arboretum location is getting more vegan friendly in the deli?

Damn, I came here to post about Daiya at the north WF location too. I saw it today.

The north location frequently has the mock chicken salad.

haha, seems like when i officially changed my main shopping location to sprouts, whole foods north starts getting stuff i've wanted all along:-)

sprouts has a really great brand of tofu though.  it's a brand called "house" and the extra firm is really firm (that's what she said).

Is it firmer than Banyan Foods "hard?" That's the firmest I've found so far.

banyan is pretty firm, but i think house might even be firmer.  i mean...it doesn't break at all when i press with towels...not even a little crack.  plus it comes in an organic version, which is important to me, especially w/soy beans.

Doesn't crack, huh? Banyan cracks a lot. I need to try it. I have a tofu press, so I could really push the limits of this House Extra Firm.

I just ate a couple slices of the daiya cheese pizza from Whole Foods at Gateway Plaza. Not bad! Very close to the real thing.  I was very impressed.

It's $2.50 a slice, by the way, which isn't bad. Two or three slices is enough for a meal.

I wonder if this is just as bad for you as real pizza, though, 'cuz this could easily become a habit. Heh.

Hey! We just missed you. We thought about buying by the slice, but we couldn't resist buying a whole one and topping it with Yve's Pepperoni. It's happening guys. The world's becoming vegan!
