Respond to Review of Food Fantasies
Review: Food Fantasies has been in the same small store for as long as I can remember. Yes, they're the only health food store in town and you can get lots of specialty items that aren't available in grocery stores (even now that County Market has their own health food section). Yes, the staff is very friendly. But the store is small and cramped, and the variety of certain items isn't great. I really wish they would get a bigger location. The second thing is, the vegan baked goods that are made there are sub-par. I've tried pretty much all of them, and they're always dry and not that great. Whatever recipes are being used to make them are definitely out-of-date, as most recipes for vegan baked goods don't call for powdered egg replacer (we know better now). Vegan baked goods can be so much better than what is offered. Along that same line, out of all of the breads that they bake, only one doesn't contain honey (or as far as I can tell from the labels i've read). I often find that the one vegan bread is sold out. The prices don't bother me because I know they're a small store. In conclusion, I love Food Fantasies but I think it's time for them to grow and change.
