Ever tried a vegan butterscotch pudding product before? For me, nope, I never had a vegan butterscotch pudding in my life, but I had real butterscotch candies before I turned a vegan! I recalled snacking on butterscotch candies everyday as a kid. Based in Montana, Wayfare Foods makes three pudding flavours: Chocolate, Butterscotch and Vanilla. All are vegan, gluten-free, soy-free, non-GMO, and made of whole grains! I love seeing products that are soy-free because my stomach does not work well with soy.
TYPES: As of August 2012, We Can’t Say It’s Cheese (Cheddar-Style Spread, Hickory-Smoked Cheddar-Style Spread, Cheddar-Style Dip and Mexi Cheddar-Style Dip), We Can’t Say It’s Sour Cream, Wayfare Pudding (Chocolate, Butterscotch and Vanilla flavours) and Pig Out-whole grain bacony bits.
ABOUT: Made in Montana, WayFare non-dairy cheese, pudding and sour cream products are non-GMO, certified gluten-free by the Gluten Intolerance Group and certified Kosher Pareve by Star-K. Wayfare Foods’ mission is “to work unselfishly for the benefit of all people by creating simple, delicious, healthful, plant-based foods, that will promote life and not bring disease” (Wayfare Foods website).
WOW, the pudding smelled like a butterscotch, a blend of rich butter and sweet brown sugar with hints of vanilla and cream. I was expecting it to look like a caramel colour, but the colour appeared to be orange. The whole grains gave the pudding a gritty texture that was enjoyable, yet still creamy. This butterscotch pudding looked like a great cake frosting or for sweet layers of cakes. The pudding goes well with cookie crumbs for more texture in parfaits and desserts. It is something I normally wouldn’t eat it alone.
