Product Review + Giveaway: Sweet Earth Natural Foods

Product Review + Giveaway: Sweet Earth Natural Foods.

The Kyoto is such a unique and unexpected burrito! It is almost like a stir-fry wrapped up in a tortilla. All of the ingredients meld so well together and the edamame adds a great texture.

The Anasazi is a great burrito to enjoy on a fall afternoon. The butternut squash and chipotle seitan are a great marriage.

The Curry Tiger has a beautiful aroma when you bite into it. The cinnamon and cardamom leave your senses wanting more.

But our favorite flavor was the Big Sur Breakfast burrito. A burrito cannot go wrong with potatoes, and the smoked seitan and seasoned tofu make for a delicious protein source.
