Daniel Lubetzky, the founding father of Type Wholesome Snacks, the maker of fruit- and nut-based snack bars — now owned by the Mars firm — and different executives have launched Somos. The road of ready-to-heat vegan preparations, entrees and sides are made in Mexico. Pouches of meatless picadillo made with potatoes and peas; cauliflower tinga in a sturdy sauce; mushrooms in chipotle sauce; and beans and rice can take to the range high or microwave. Additionally obtainable are white corn tortillas and 4 salsas, of which the brooding, roasted tomatillo pasilla was my favourite. Their “Unusually Thick and Crunchy White Corn Tortilla Chips” have a crisp but substantial texture and barely smoky taste. Particular person objects are $2.99 to $5.29; kits for assembling quesadillas, tacos and so forth, together with one for Cinco de Mayo, are $32 to $60.
