    I want to try one as well, though perhaps the mental image of the grease clogging my arteries will inhibit my ability to enjoy it.

    Burger King sells a Beyond Meat burger here in the States. The meatless Whopper tastes exactly like a Whopper. I can’t tell the difference. Costs about the same as a regular burger and has no fewer calories. The only advantage I see is no cholesterol.

    I've heard some mixed reports so there's really only one way to find out.
    Burger King here in the US had a "beyond Meat " Burger which got me thinking that the beef patties in their burgers was probably the healthiest part of the whole thing and they went and replaced it.
    Aside from the philosophical reason for not eating meat, I am not sure a vegetable concoction consisting of binders ,food coloring , flavor and texture enhancing agents is better that beef.
    The sooner you fall behind, the more time you have to catch up.

    It's catered to a specific market and will satisfy others as well - nothing about being a meat-substitute in terms of Vegs wanting meat
    I am not within this particular market group. My only gripe is if it put in supermarkets close to the meat such that wife or I confuse the two.

    I wouldn't mind trying it but now the mental image of your arteries clogging with grease may spoil my enjoyment...

    I had a butter chicken, from out of a supermarket freezer last week- microwave job. Or so I thought, until I tasted it. It was 'vegan chicken'. No, didn't really taste like chicken- I knew instantly, but it was OK. Kinda like butter tofu really- which figures, because that is really what it was..

    So why the need for the misleading labelling? I am no vegan, or vego, but I have no problem with meat free meals if they taste OK, and I certainly believe there are health benefits too.

    Another example is a veggie burger- why bother with this pap meant to look and taste like a mince patty (it doesn't, at least what few I've tried), when you can make quite a delicious veg burger with haloumi cheese and a portobello mushroom cap, and not need to pretend it is something it isnt?

    Don't worry Chico I'm sure the process of cooking one of these 'Beyond Meat'-type burgers is the same as a normal meat one.

    If you can actually find a new job at your ripe old age then you won't have to upskill.

    This is what I don't het either, but it certainly isn't aimed at the vegan/vegetarian/pescatarian market who have their reasons for not eating meat and don't need a look-alike product
