I've finally got around to trying the No Chick Strips from Iceland's vegan range. A lot of brands that try to replicate the texture of chicken with layers of layers of hydrated soya protein fuck it horribly by making it too chewy or too watery but these were spot on. In fact, they might be the best veggie chicken I've tried but they should be at that price.

I've tried the veggie Richmond sausages again; they are markedly better fried than cooked. They went rather nicely in a hot dog bun with fried onions and ketchup but their flavour isn't strong enough for something like a 'meat and veg' meal.

Today I've tried sausages by the Meatless Farm Company as these were on offer in Sainsbury's from £2.50 to £2.

Every review on the Sainsbury's website is either 1 star or 5 star so they're either very polarising or people from Meatless Farm Company are posting fake 5 star ratings so it doesn't look so bad. I'd give them 1½ out of 5 if I was feeling generous.

It's literally Sosmix that they've pre-prepared and dressed up in nice packaging. They're laughing all the way to the bank.

Off the top of my head I can't think of another company that does this. If I bought Maryland cookies I wouldn't have expected them to be made by getting one of those packets of Betty Crocker baking mixture where you just need to add an egg and oil before popping them in the oven. Their sausages are indistinguishable from Sosmix.

It probably tastes the same but it isn't, the ingredients are quite different.

You have a point despite the inappropriate use of the word "literally".
Most of the common vegan protein sources are pretty cheap compared to meat, companies like quorn put a mountain of effort into their recipes to try and get their products as close to the real thing as possible and can justify the price, but the market is open for companies like that to charge massively inflated prices on processed wheat&soy tubes.

This to me highlights the absurdity of the whole exercise. It is like a person who keeps telling you they are over their ex even when they are with a new person, people who buy these things and say you 'you can't tell the difference' know that there is a difference and miss the difference that's why they are comparing.

It is pretending to be something it isn't and consequently it can never be it or as good at being it. I'm sure the mushrooms or soy or whey they used might taste wonderful on it's own terms but I wouldn't know because I only ever find these things when they are pretending to be pork or chicken, which they definitely aren't.


If you brought me chicken and told me it tastes just like tofu I'd end up hating chicken.

The point of the "exercise" is to create something that scratches the itch for eating meat while not using animal products for whatever reason. It would only be absurd if they were claiming to hate ("be over") the taste of meat while also trying to replicate it.

That is the absurd argument of someone who is making a choice they don't actually like and defines them self as being counter to the mainstream rather than actually embracing the implications of the choice they have made.

If Vicars started proclaiming the virtues of pegging between married couples 'as a way to scratches the itch for sodomy while not being homosexual for whatever reason' you would think they were off their rocker.

You don't see jews buying chicken flavoured to taste like pig.

>whatever reason

The whatever is self-flagellating. Meat is sinful so you deny it but you can't control your urges for it. In a generation rolling around in animal blood will be a major kink mark my words.

What the fuck are you on about? Most vegetarians/vegans are doing it for ethical reasons, and even if you believe they're doing it to be trendy, that still doesn't invalidate still wanting to eat something that reminds them of bacon - if anything, it strengthens that argument.

Considering the success of the collaboration between Quorn and Greggs this was a bit of a let down. Vegan pastry has a tendency to be fragile and this broke apart at the slightest touch. The filling is also inferior to the Greggs roll.

Overall it's about on par with other chilled sausage rolls, but it was a keen reminder that I just want Greggs to open up again.

The closet Greggs to me is on a high street notable for its high rate of stabbings and the other one I frequent is in an international airport, they're both busy but it's 50/50 on whether I get a hot or room temperature pasty.

Today I have tried the Morrisons vegan pasty. These are usually £3 for 2 but I picked them up as they were reduced.

My only really complaint is that there wasn't enough filling so it was slightly overwhelmed by the pastry and I'd have liked there to have been more of the 'meat' and the swede. If the choice was between this and the Quorn steak bake from Greggs then it would be the pasty by a mile. It's not a brilliant pasty, but it's no worse than what else you can pick up from a supermarket.

Just about every veggie I've ever known is fat and pasty. I've always found it dead strange.

Whatever Big Veg would have us believe, a vegetarian diet definitely doesn't necessarily mean a healthy diet.

One of my friends went vegan but all she ate was salad and processed crap, which resulted in her turning slightly yellow and her hair thinning. She started eating eggs and cheese again to get some actual protein in her diet.

I guess it's no surprise if you eat like shit before turning vegan that you still eat like shit afterwards.

Tons of junk food is vegetarian (crisps, plenty of sweets, cakes, all sorts) so going veggie won't fix your diet if it's shit already but it's wrong to say vegetarian food isn't filling.
I mostly eat the same as a vegetarian as I did when I ate meat as I'd learnt to cook frugally as a student and used tons of pulses and things to fill out meals already, so removing the meat component just left me with practically the same dish minus a bit of cheap chicken that, while quite nice, I didn't miss all that much.
Veggie bolognese, lasagna, chilli, curries etc. all fill me up just as well as the meaty versions and although veggie stuff obviously lacks the centrepiece meat cuts other types of meals aren't lacking. Plus being veggie means I still have tons of eggs, cheese and too much butter.

Found a Papa John's menu in my letterbox so I figured I'd order a pizza for the first time in two years. Pizza's ok, pretty edible, but the tomato sauce is much too sweet and doesn't have that fresh tomatoey taste good sauce should have. Wouldn't order from them again.

I'm going to go out and say it, the best sausage roll is when you get a couple from a multi-pack and warm them up in the oven or microwave. Maybe it just reminds me of being left in the house as a teenager while my parents went somewhere for the weekend.

That or those big ones you get at Morrisons if you don't mind the mess.

I don't see the point in takeaway pizza, unless you're pissed and getting a filthy one with doner meat on it. Otherwise you might as well just get a Chicago Town one.

When my parents used to drag me around Asda they'd usually let me get something, which tended to be either their mini sausage rolls with mustard seeds in or their mini brunch pasties. Lovely they were.
