The deviled “WunderEggs” are available to buy in Whole Foods Market stores across the country. Deviled eggs are hard-boiled eggs that are peeled, cut in half, and filled with an egg-based paste. Crafty Counter’s version comes with a “Devilish Wunder Mix” sachet, featuring a mix of vegan mayo, aquafaba, apple cider vinegar, turmeric, paprika, mustard seed, and sunflower oil. 

To replicate the egg whites, Crafty Counter used a mix of cashews, chickpeas, almonds, konjac, and psyllium husk. The Texas-based company offers a number of other egg products, including hard boiled and patties. 

“We’re thrilled to present our latest sensation, the first-ever ready-to-eat Vegan Deviled Eggs, showcasing our unwavering commitment to redefining plant-based eating,” Crafty Counter wrote on its website. “Take a bite and let it transport you to the heart of the holiday spirit, one Deviled WunderEggs at a time.”
