Foodies Pumfu Taste Test and Review
Pumfu The Original
The Original Pumfu is what is most comparable to traditional soy based tofu.
We love love loved the texture and taste of the Original Pumfu. It took on a marinade just like traditional tofu and cooked in the same amount of time. It was crazy how similar it was.
There’s no need to press it out, it’s pre-pressed which greatly reduced the time. The is a huge selling point for us since there is no waiting.
The price point is much higher. We can get a block of tofu (12-14oz) for $1.79 whereas the Original Pumfu is $6.00-6.49 for only 8oz.
The green color may be a turn off to some but it was fine for us overall since the package says it’s normal.
We have not tried making a tofu crumble with it at this time.
Want the meal that we tried in the video? It’s this garlic sauce recipe!
Can you freeze Original Pumfu?
We wanted to test out freezing pumfu because when you freeze soy tofu the texture changes and mimics meat more. However, the pumfu crumbles more and did not do the same thing.
Despite saying that it can be frozen on the package, we personally wouldn’t recommend doing that unless you are okay with it being crumbled in whatever you are making.
We did wonder but have yet to try if you could repress after thawing from frozen if the texture would be better.
Pumfu Chorizo Crumble
We didn’t think this was very spicy at all and more sausage like but we really liked the texture of the product a lot.
It’s hard to break these up until they heat up and then it is much much easier.
Overall, we said we liked this one and would try it again, adding more of our own flavors to it.
Pumfu Sausage Crumble
This was very very similar to the chorizo. Honestly there wasn’t a big difference.
Like the chorizo, it’s hard to break these up until they heat up and then it is much much easier.
It was a very plain sausage taste and not like a breakfast sausage with sage and stuff.
Pumfu Sloppy Joe
Andrew said he liked it, but Larisha said she wouldn’t buy this one again. The flavors were very muted and the texture was odd versus some of the other products.
