I recently found Beyond Meat burgers, the Cookout Classic 10-pack, on sale for $7.99 at the Grocery Outlet. This review looks at ingredients, cooking tips, and sustainability and I also compare the Beyond Meat burger to the Impossible Burger.
I bought hemp seed bars from Canadian brand, Hemp Yeah!, at the Grocery Outlet and they’ve become some of my favorite seed-based energy bars. Hemp Yeah! is a line of hemp-based products from Manitoba Harvest, several of which are available on discount at the Grocery Outlet. I’m giving the hemp seed bars 4.5 Green Stars for social and environmental impact.
I bought So Delicious chocolate chip mousse at the Grocery Outlet and highly recommend it – it’s a vanilla mouse mixed with delicious flakes of chocolate. It contains much less sugar and fat than normal ice cream, and zero trans fats. It’s also vegan and partly organic, earning 4 Green Stars for social and environmental impact.
I bought Quorn Meatless Turkey-Style Deli Slices at the Grocery Outlet last week and found them to be very similar to real turkey (as I remember it). Quorn Foods is a veteran of the vegetarian movement and although this product (which is vegetarian) doesn’t score as highly as Quorn’s vegan products, it still gets a very solid 4 Green Stars for social and environmental impact.
I bought two types of Nature’s Path cereal at the Grocery Outlet this month – Almond Nut Butter Crunch and Coconut Cashew Nut Butter Crunch. I thought that both were good and Nature’s Path does a really good job on sustainability metrics, reducing waste and carbon footprint and being a longtime pioneer in organic farming practices. 5/5 Green Stars for social and environmental impact!
I bought two types of Back to Nature cookies at the Grocery Outlet last week – chocolate chip and classic creme. These cookies are entirely vegan but the company lacks transparency on ingredient sourcing. So it’s a mixed review, with the Chocolate Chunk the Classic Creme cookies getting ethical scores of 3.5 Green Stars and 3 Green Stars, respectively.
I bought a box of Clif Chocolate Peanut Butter bars at the Grocery Outlet last week, from Clif Bar’s Sweet and Satly range. Overall, I think that Clif bar has been a leader in climate action and deserves an ethical score of 4.5 Green Stars for social and environmental impact.

I found two kinds of Sweet Earth pizza at the Grocery Outlet last week – the Truffle Lover’s and Protein Lover’s pizza. Sweet Earth is now owned by Nestlé in 2017, influencing things a little. Overall, these Sweet Earth products deserve a regular rating of 4.5 gold stars and an ethical score of 3.5 Green Stars for social and environmental impact.
