Meatless Chorizo Wins ‘Best Meat’ Award at Trader Joe’s, Because Vegans


The results are in and the winner of  this year’s Trader Joe’s Annual Customer Choice Award in the category of Best Meat is….

Soy Chorizo!

Yes, the “vegetarian-friendly version of traditional Mexican sausage,” has been hailed by Trader Joe’s customers as the best meat ever, beating meatless meatballs, ground turkey, chicken sausage and — the horror — grass-fed Angus Beef.

This might seem like a crime but there is a world out there of people who will eat meatless chorizo — for some reason.

Or …is this just real chorizo saying in Spanish that it is, well, CHORIZO?
