Some of the alternative stuff being produced is excellent. You just have to accept paying a premium for it.

Things like nuggets/bites etc in particular... you could blind test these on meat eaters and I wouldn't be surprised at all if they didn't notice.

...and was rather impressed how they do a good job of mimicking that BBQ taste.


You microwaved them?

Presumably the 4th was used by the photographer to secure his top knot, like sideshow Bob.

Oh yeah, it was a taste thing for me too but I somehow also just got used to the taste after a bit and now I like them. Brains/people are strange.


Balladeer wrote:Cheers for the experience report Heskimo, appreciate it. :) I’ll give Cauldron a go if I see them, but my brain is very firmly set to the ‘burgers is meat lol’ way of thinking, and I doubt I’m pushing myself over the edge soon so I don’t know if that’ll change soon to be honest. I did find a soy burger that was perfectly edible a while back - it looked nothing like meat yet red squirted vegetable juice all over the shop, doing a number on my baking tray. What’s the point of trying to emulate blood if you’ve already done a shoddy job of emulating the look of the rest of the thing? :dread:


No worries! Yeah, I totally get it, I had the same mindset for quite a long time. And again, I'm not suggesting there's anything inherently wrong if it works for you or that you just need to get over it and eat stuff, just that time can change things, I guess. I agree with the weird attempts at emulating "bloody" burgers - I never really liked that sort of thing as a meat eater anyway. One of my favourite things about eating more veggie stuff is how my food isn't anywhere near as "drippy" as it used to be when it comes to things like burgers. I also feel like it's a bit of an unnecessary step too far that strays more into the "why would you want that?" argument that Photek brought up. But I guess maybe some people like it. Speaking of -

Not a problem - I probably could have replied in less of an on-the-attack way, apologies. Sometimes feels like well-trodden ground but that's probably my own frustrations - probably shouldn't be discouraging people from asking questions!

*4 hours later, you now having moved back to your desk*

"...so that's what being vegan is all about really."

@Heskimo: I can kind of understand if you’re going for the full-on faux-meat experience, but these things looked nothing like burgers anyway. Tasted fine in a bun though!

I'm a bit of an impatient eater, so for me it's the freedom to wolf down everything you can see, without having to worry about overly-fatty bits, stringy bits, cartilage, unidentifiable dodgy crunchy bits etc. It's liberating!

No, no, I didn't realise it was well trodden ground. My bad.

I'd be hard pressed to tell the difference between real meat and a lot of substitutes that are out there now. Had some new veggie sausages the other day and had to quickly double check the packaging when I ate a bite as they were so realistic I panicked I'd bought the wrong ones.

How can you tell someone is a vegan? They'll spend 5 pages of an unrelated thread telling you.

And I'd go so far as to say an Oat Milk latte is superior to a normal latte. The oatyness work really well with a coffee flavour.


Have you had the Oatly barista oat milk because that is the best.


I do really like that one, but I also really like this one:

Just tried something new to go with lunch: pak choi.

Sliced it in half, rubbed it with vegetable oil, garlic and soy sauce and put it straight onto a George Forman grill for 3-4 minutes.

It's the first time I've been aware of eating pak choi and I'd say it was pretty damn good.

Verdict: 8/10 would eat again.
