I can't eat the veggie patties any more due to how spicey hot they now are, so decided to stick with the Chick Patties. Bought a box of 16. Ate one. My eyes watered instantly! It was like eating a spoonful of black pepper. Horrible! I am very worried for my favorite, the "fake" bacon strips which I add to casseroles, use for wraps, put on my pizza, eat with eggs, and many other uses. Previously, I preferred this brand, but now I don't know if I'll be brave enough to purchase anything from them since they seem to think food needs to be spicey hot - which I strongly dislike but also health problems prevent me from having anyway. Pepper isn't on my forbidden list, but I'm not a fan of it and don't add it. If people want pepper, let them add it themselves! The veggie patties, at least my husband still likes and doesn't find them overly zippy spiced, but when I could eat spicey, I found mild salsa on the edge of too zippy to eat. I really, really hope they go back to making things like they used to! However, I'm not sure I'll ever buy anything of that brand again (except the fake bacon) because I don't like wasting my money on food I can't/won't eat anyway. I don't think my husband will much like the new chick patties and they've been his go-to food when he needs a quick supper.
