I've reviewed these on my website, and here's what I wrote about them in case any of you are interested.
Boca Chick'n Patties (spicy):4 stars.
I'm not a vegetarian. I don't really eat alot of meat, but I do enjoy it when I do. And I am skeptical of "fake meat" soy products. I've had some meat free hot dogs that were simply horrid. However, I did like the Morningstar meatless corn dogs (see below [ed note: there is no below in this message, this is a cut and paste from my site]), so I decided to give these "chick'n" patties a try as well.
I'm very glad I did! These, to repeat a cliche, really do taste like ckicken, and with a nice hit of spiciness as well. I simply pop one into a toaster oven, then bake off until is slightly browned. I serve on a low calorie hamburger bun (80 calories each) and some light mayo, and some lettuce, and I end up with a "chicken" sandwich that tastes every bit as good as something that came out of fast food window, at alot less calories. These "chick'n" patties weigh in at 160 calories each, while a frozen Tyson Southren Style chicken patty comes in at 240 calories. Fixed as I describe above, a sandwich made with a Boca comes in at about 300 calories. A Jack's Spicy Chicken Sandwich (which is the fast food sandwich the above most reminds of off all the fast food places I've tried), according to Jack in the Box website, comes in at 620 calories.
No, you won't think that you are eating one of those big chicken fillets that many places serve, but you might be surprised as how satisfying a meat free chicken sandwich really can be.
End cut n paste
And ya, fed one to my husband. He didn't realize till I told him.
