This hurts me, but I would go as far as to say that I despise this product.

I love chipotle. I love lime. I love chicken fingers. On paper, Gardein’s Chipotle Lime Crispy Fingers are everything I’ve ever dreamed of. In reality, I’ve never been more disappointed by a vegetarian imitation meat. Is it my fault I had such high hopes? Yes. Absolutely. While I work on reigning in my expectations, Gardein needs to work on improving these vegetarian chicken fingers.

It’s not going to stop me from trying other Gardein products. They’re still one of the best imitation meat companies out there, but I promise you, this is a product you can skip out on.


  • Texture is pretty meaty and stringy
  • Super easy to cook
  • Vegan


  • Super bland, yet also too spicy
  • Taste is atrocious. Very reminiscent of vomit
  • Strong wheat-y aftertaste
  • Coating never crisps up, and slides off very easily

Final Rating: /10 - Pretty Bad


Gardein’s Chipotle Lime Crispy Fingers come in resealable 9.5oz plastic bags containing 6 tenders per bag. They must be kept frozen.

Unlike Gardein’s more popular products, these Chipotle Lime Crispy Finger can be a little more difficult to find. We purchased this product from our local Whole Foods for $4.79/bag.
