Amy's Kitchen Review & Giveaway - Ends 8/1

Amy's Kitchen is the #1 natural frozen foods brand, specializing in vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free savory snacks/meals and sweet treats. They just released some awesome new products that I was lucky enough to review. I received a package in the mail containing the following:

  • Broccoli and spinach white pizza
  • Orange cake (vegan/dairy-free)
  • Chocolate cake (vegan/dairy-free)
  • California veggie burger (light in sodium)

I will begin by reviewing the cakes. While I preferred the chocolate cake, my husband preferred the orange cake. Unlike many vegan desserts that I have tried that tend to be bland or dry, these cakes were very flavorful and moist. You can purchase them in the freezer section at your grocery store, and all you have to do is thaw them in the fridge for a few hours and serve. Even after having them in the fridge for a few days, they still tasted fresh and maintained their moisture. The orange cake had a very intense orange flavor. The chocolate cake had a bittersweet flavor.. While I usually make my own desserts for dinner parties, I would proudly serve one of these cakes. They'd both be great as part of a trifle, layered with fruit/berries, pudding, and whipped cream (for those of us who eat dairy).


When I was a meat-eater, I was particular about burgers. After becoming a pescetarian 4 years ago, I became particular about the types of veggie burgers I would eat. Generally, I prefer black bean burgers, but I decided to give these a try. Turns out....they're delicious! I topped my burger with sharp cheddar cheese, grilled onions, and avocado, and I enjoyed it throughly. I even served them to my nieces, calling them "burgers," and they didn't even notice that they were made of veggies instead of beef. One bit of caution, these burgers do contain nuts, a common allergen.



The white pizza was the first think we tried. The picture on the cover looked delicious! Usually I add extra flavors (more cheese, garlic, herbs, etc.) to frozen pizzas. This pizza was very flavorful. Even my 10-month old daughter liked it. The crust was thin and crisp, and there was a good about of toppings. 

Overall, we loved our new Amy's products! We'll definitely purchase some of these items on future grocery shopping trips.
