Road’s End Shiitake Mushroom Gravy Review


Road’s End makes 3 different kinds of gravy: Savoury Herb, Shiitake Mushroom, and Delicious Golden.

While my favourite will always be their Savoury Herb, I figured I should still review the other two. And what better time to review a gravy than in the middle of the last month before winter officially starts?

I’ll be honest, I don’t know exactly why they decided to go with blue for their mushroom packaging, but don’t let the weird colour throw you. This gravy is definitely delicious!

Well, okay, that will actually depend on how big a fan you are of mushrooms. This gravy stays true to it’s name and has a very strong mushroom flavour. It actually reminded me of the mushroom flavoured Mr. Noodles.

While this gravy’s primary flavour is indeed the mushrooms, there’s also a definite herb taste in there. It’s like their Savoury Herb gravy, but they added mushrooms to it. The mushroom flavour definitely hits you first, though. So if you don’t like mushrooms, you might want to plug your nose while it’s in your mouth, then release when you swallow.

Now, I’m not too sure if this is the gravy specifically, or if it was me, but it also has a very good consistency. It wasn’t too runny, or too thick. Perfect, thick gravy. I say I don’t know if that’s on the packet or me, because these gravies come in powder form, then you stir them together with water in a pot on the stove. So I’m not sure if it was my stirring/measuring water ability or the gravy itself.

And obviously, if you don’t like thick gravy, you can thin it out by adding a little extra water, or vice versa, if you prefer it extra thick.

Since you just mix them together with water, they also come together extremely quickly. Which is great for a lot of reasons. Not just for the upcoming holiday season, but if you ever have a craving for gravy and don’t want to go through the hassle of making it from scratch, you can just grab one of these bad boys and go to town.

I recommend this one specifically for poutine – the mushroom flavour adds a great layer of depth – but I’ll leave the dish up to you.

These packs are also pretty cheap, $2.79 at Good Rebel. And considering one pack is enough to cover a full bowl of poutine, I’d say that’s a pretty good deal.

All in all, while this gravy isn’t my personal favourite of the three, I definitely still reach for it – and think you should, too!

Road’s End Savoury Herb Gravy Review


Hands down my favourite vegan gravy. This stuff? If they sold it in juice containers, I would drink it. I’m not even kidding, it’s that good.

Road’s End makes two other gravy flavours, Shiitake Mushroom and Delicious Golden, but the Savoury Herb is the best. They also make mac n cheese, but that is not good. I don’t want to be mean, but it tasted…. I don’t know, cardboard-y? Maybe they put too much nooch in it or something, it’s just bad. Their thing is definitely not mac n cheese.

But that’s okay, because this gravy makes up for it. Moral of that little bit is, don’t buy their mac n cheese. (Sorry if you like it)

This gravy, man, I don’t even know where to start.

The herbs offer that nice refreshing taste herbs do when you eat it, and it doesn’t taste ‘heavy’ like other gravies, it’s pretty light but is delicious too. You could use a whole pack, to say, make some poutine, and you wouldn’t feel bad because it doesn’t give you that gross too full feeling.

I honestly don’t even have the words to describe how good it is. It’s hard to describe because I just want to keep saying ‘it’s good’ but that’s not really a review.

Almost like when I reviewed the Famous Burger in my Vegan Festival Review – too good for words to properly explain if you haven’t tasted it.

Just – go out and get some.
