Lightlife Smart Wings (Honey BBQ) Veggie Protein Wings

I thought that perhaps one of the reasons I didn't like the LightLife Buffalo Smart Wings (Review) was because I prepared it in the microwave as opposed to the preferred method of pan-searing it. This time, I wasn't going to make that same mistake. I got my pan out, and followed the directions for that method of preperation for the (meatless) Lightlife Honey BBQ Smart Wings. Unfortunately, I know now that making it that way does NOT improve the taste any.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 4 wings (85 grams)
Calories: 120
Total Fat: 0%
Saturated Fat: 0%
Sodium: 430 mg, 18%
Carbohydrates: 16 grams
Fiber: 4 grams, 16%
Sugar: 9 grams
Protein: 13 grams

I said it before, and I'll say it again - it really is an insult to "wings" to have that in the title of this product, and it does the product a disservice to have people thinking that this might be similar to wings. It's not ... not even a little bit. It only slightly resembles a wing drumette - and it doesn't have the same texture or taste. The texture is like veggie protein, compact & dry without the sauce. It's not juicy and not even the honey barbecue sauce is the best thing about the product - sweet and slightly tangy, but it wasn't enough to make me like it.

The nutrition facts are pretty good though. Each serving of 4 Lightlife Honey BBQ Smart Wings provides 120 calories, no fat, 430 mg sodium (18% of the daily value), 4 grams of fiber (16% of the DV), 9 grams of sugars and 13 grams of protein.

The ingredients list starts with water, soy protein concentrate, wheat gluten, soy protein isolate and egg white powder. A package with 8 Lightlife Honey BBQ Smart Wings (2 servings), cost $3.99 at my local grocery store - but I received samples of this to consider for review.

Although there are some good reviews of LightLife products, this is not one that I enjoyed. But Lisa at HealthNutxo loved them - so let's hear from you - have you tried these before? What did you think?
