Soy Curls taste a whole hell of a lot like TVP. That’s not necessarily bad…just unexpected. I guess it shouldn’t be, though, cause it looks like they’re essentially made of the same core stuff; TVP’s just more processed. That ‘V’ is pretty misleading, though.
Also, TVP isn’t out there marketing itself as the superior alternative to Tofu; it’s comfortable being an also-ran in the curious world of meat replacements, like Seitan.
