As the old saying goes, if it walks like a duck and talks like a duck, it must be a duck. By that logic, Trader Joe's Italian Sausage-less Sausage must be Italian Sausage. Except that it's not. Because it's completely meat free. You wouldn't know that, though, by tasting it. It tastes just like Italian Sausage. For real. It's seasoned with onions and garlic and bell peppers, and other sausage-y spices & seasonings. It even eats like Italian Sausage - if you've tried meatless "meat" from some markets, you know that this is no small feat, it's pretty neat, and can't be beat.
Our Italian Sausage-less Sausage is made with textured soy protein, and the consistency is magnificently meaty. These links have only 140 calories each, significantly less than traditional sausage, and still provide 13 grams of protein! If you're going meat-free with your pizza, this is a must-include ingredient that will satisfy meat eaters and vegetarians alike. We're selling each 12 ounce package of four links of Trader Joe's Italian Sausage-less Sausage for $3.49, every day. You'll find it in our refrigerated case.
