We Tried These Vegan Frozen Burritos And They Were Surprisingly Delicious

My diet throughout high school consisted of frozen burritos and Cactus Cooler. While frozen burritos are still very much part of my adult diet, going in on all that meat and cheese more than once a week really weighs down on a person.

At ExpoWest, we discovered Alpha Foods‘ vegan burritos.

The burritos are made with 100 percent plant-based proteins that’s completely vegan. Available in four flavors (Mexicali, Philly Sandwich, Chick’n Fajita, and Pizza), each burrito is high in plant protein, cholesterol free, and non-GMO.

A completely vegan alternative for the meaty burritos we once would dig out of the freezer aisle, Alpha burritos piqued our curiosity, as some of us are now trying to stick to more plant-based consumption.

We tried some at the Foodbeast office and here’s what some of the team had to say about the Alpha burritos.

Constantine:

I was genuinely surprised, I didn’t expect the flavors to get that close to real pizza and Philly cheesesteak. When it came to the Philly cheesesteaks, the flavors were spot on but I could kinda tell it was vegan.

Rishu:

Didn’t taste like a Philly cheesteak, but the flavors and the texture were good enough to make me want more. Lighter than what I expected, and had a good fresh kick to it.

Isai:

I’d fuck with this if I were vegan. It didn’t exactly scream ‘Philly Cheesesteak’ to me, but the flavor was still good.

Evan:

It was good, surprised it was vegan. It was also heartier than I anticipated. I only ate half of one and I’m pretty content.

As far as frozen burritos go, the consensus seemed to be that they tasted pretty good. Sure, some of us were able to tell they were vegan, but if you’re trying to stick to a plant-based lifestyle, Alpha Foods might just be what you need to recapture the flavor of regular meat and cheese-based burritos.
