The Stumptown Vegans are joined by special guests for a lengthy blind taste test and critical discussions of vegan muffins, scones, chocolate cake/cupcakes, gluten-free selections, and cheesecake from local vegan baked goods providers.
Disclaimers and Set Up:
This podcast contains a no-holds barred, colorful, opinionated conversation amongst delightfully spoiled Portlanders, who all eventually succumb, on air, to sugar overload. The showdown is based on items acquired on a specific weekend, and purchased with the Stumptown Vegans’ own money. We were not able to attain everything uniformly, and were missing items normally available from some bakeries. That’s just how the cookie crumbled.
For example, there are chocolate cupcakes and cake reviewed in one category, and generally available scones missing from another. We did not place any special orders.
Even as Stumptown Vegans, we purchased independently and were not aware of where each item was from.
There are vegan-friendly bakeries missing. If they bake your favorite items, or you disagree with our results, please share!
We do not know when items were baked or prepared.
We aimed to have at least 3 selections for every category.
Coming soon to Stumptown Vegans: the pie graph breakdown, item descriptions, more photos and quotes.
