The first time I had Tofurky was in the US. We were travelling around the world and US was one of those places we visited. We were going to drive up to Yosemite National Park to spend a few days in a self-catering cabin we hired.
It turned out to be one of the best holidays! I saw two bear-bottoms during our stay. The moment I caught the bears either crossing the road or disappearing behind a dumpster, it was only the bottom bit. So I can safely say that I saw two bear-bottoms in Yosemite National Park.
Anyway, here’s how things work at Yosemite: after you’ve booked, they tell you all about the small places, supermarkets and even health food stores right up to Yosemite National Park so you stock up well in the ingredients department. Management supply all the cooking equipment but you do your own cooking.
Coming from San Francisco, first we stopped at a health store in Santa Fe and were astonished by the variety of vegan/vegetarian products. Then there was this supermarket closer to Yosemite National Park. The aisle for our kind of food was huge! If I’m not mistaken, that was where we found Tofurky Slices. It was hickory flavoured one and delicious! (I also remember that place as the spot where I picked up Paulo Coelho’s The Devil and Miss Prym from a tiny little bookstore within the same shopping complex.)
It took some time for Australia to catch up with Tofurky products but they are here!
