I love tofu. I love how versatile it is. It takes on any flavour you marinade it in, it just soaks it up. You can get soft tofu, firm, to extra firm. Soft tofu is great for blending to make cheeses or desserts, and firm tofu is what I would use for cooking and has that similarity to chicken. If made right, especially eating out at vegan restaurants, tofu can taste pretty much like chicken or other meats.
I love that this brand is organic. It is firm tofu, and from the pictures on the front I thought that inside would have a marinade on the tofu, but the tofu is dry like normal tofu, just a bit spiced. But they have recipes on the side of the box to follow, to go with that particular tofu flavour.
ClearSpot also have "Marinated Tofu", "Sesame Burgers", and "Sea Cakes". The marinated tofu wasn't sold where I shop, but the photo on the box doesn't actually look too appealing to me.
If you are not a fan of tofu, taste buds adapt. My boyfriend wasn't that keen on tofu when he first started eating it, and now he loves it!
This one is my favourite for the fact that plain tofu is the most versatile in taking on any flavour you like. My favourite marinade to make is tamari, a bit of liquid sweetener and sometimes a bit of chilli sauce, with paprika, garlic granules, black pepper and sesame seeds. Even tamari alone is delicious. And another favourite combo of mine is when it's cooked, eating it with some smashed avocado. They go so well together! This tofu tastes like my usual brand I use called Naked Tofu by The Tofoo Co, which is also organic.
This tofu smells like barbeque flavoured chips, and also when it's in the oven! I just marinaded this with tamari before putting it in the oven, but the marinade recipe they give on the box also looks delicious. It tasted smokey and delicious. It tasted like Frankfurt sausages actually.

This one has quite a lot of different spices in it, and they all have an equal amount of flavour which was good, and not overpowering. If you like Mexican/aromatic spices you'll like this tofu. Me personally I am not really into all those aromatic spices so this wasn't a favourite of mine and I would probably still stick to plain tofu.
This one basically tasted the same as the Mexican one, as it had the same aromatic spices, but this one has a little bit of spice to it. Again I'm not a fan of a lot of aromatic spices together, but if you like Indian spices you'll like it.
I didn't like this one. It just had an overpowering ginger kind of taste, and that was it. I enjoyed my stir-fry dish and my own marinade, but the tofu kind of ruined it for me. I would have definitely preferred plain tofu.
