Today I have tried Richmond's meat-free sausages. In terms of texture they've got a satisfying crunchy skin to them, the most pork-like of any vegetarian sausage I've tried, although it does tend to get stuck on your teeth. The inside was slightly too dense for my liking. In terms of flavour they tasted vaguely like a pork sausage but it was largely just... nothingness. It was diluted pork.

They'd probably go well in a fry-up, but I wouldn't recommend getting them unless they were on offer.

Huel's chocolate option reminds me of Alpro's desserts. Overall I'd rate it as the best flavour I've tried as the vanilla tends to leave that scratchy feeling at the back of your throat.

Mate.

Fry bacon with it. Scoop out the innards, fry it in the pan with the bacon.

The seeds end up tasting like charred bacon, the flesh didn't impact the flavour of the bacon much but I guess had a very minor impact. But the fucking seeds dude, they tasted amazing.

They're an accurate production of real Richmond sausages, then?

To be honest I think slightly shit sausages are best for a fry up. They should be a bulk, while the real flavour comes from good bacon, and scooping a bit of everything else up onto the same fork.

Cheap sausages at least have a flavour to them. The veggie Richmond sausages were about as close to tasting of nothing, without actually tasting of nothing, as you can possibly get.

It's surprisingly difficult to get decent vegetarian sausages. One of the supermarkets, possibly Asda, used to have a nice range of own-brand Lincolnshire and Cumberland ones but they stopped making them a while back.

I haven't had them in years. From what I can recall they're okay, but nothing to write home about. They've got a distinct taste, which isn't really meat-like; they're quite nice in a sausage butty with some sauce but, in my opinion, they don't really 'go' as part of a meal that you'd typically have had a sausage with. They remind me a bit of the ones you can make yourself with Sosmix.

Today I have tried Naanster's balti chicken filled naan, because it was reduced when I went to Co-op yesterday.

The naan bread was slightly soggy from being microwaved and felt rather glutenous. It also had an overpowering amount of nigella seeds. The filling was pleasant enough but there wasn't enough of it, particularly the chicken.

4.5/10.

Today I have tried the Kashmiri size pizza from Co-op's new vegan range, Gro.

The pizza is topped with MozzaRisella, which is a cheese alternative derived from brown rice milk, spiced cauliflower and chili peppers, not that it really matters because the toppings are completely overwhelmed by the sauce. You're basically eating dough which tastes of chip shop curry sauce with a little bit of heat added. It could do with a little more texture and susbtance but it wasn't too bad.

I don't really see what the point of the rice cheese was. It didn't add anything apart from, like you say, making it look like someone had spaffed all over the pizza; certainly nothing in terms of flavour.

I had a vegan pizza with vegan mozzarella in a pub. I didn't really notice the mozzarella as the whole thing was piled high with rocket for some reason but it was pretty good. £11 which is what you'd probably pay for a pizza delivery which is weird considering it was a London high street pub where all the alcoholic drinks start at £5

It wasn't too bad, actually. I mean, you know what you're getting with a Rustlers burger. It could have done with a bit less coriander and a bit more mango chutney but it did the job. If I had another one I'd probably add in a slice of cheese as a topping.

The ones you get from Lidl are ok. You get a bigger pack for less money, and the meal itself is completely identical, I think they're from the same factory. But the mainstream supermarkets are just taking the piss, the prices are silly for the amount of food you get, those small packs like you've pictured have less food than there is plastic packaging.

Quorn-Ultimate-Healthy-Vegan-Burger-FSRD.jpg

The 'Ultimate' burger is Quorn's attempt at making a so-called bleeding burger through the use of beetroot. It has to be the worst veggie burger I have ever eaten; I couldn't even finish it and I'll eat almost any old shite. I can't put my finger on precisely what it tasted of. Metallic? Cocoa powder? I don't know but it was certainly cheap and nasty (without actually being that cheap).

Beyond Meat isn't bad but given that it's basically reshaped dog food I find myself wondering if I should save myself a shitload of money by eating dog food instead. I've seen people eating dog food on telly so I know it's a possibility, apparently the quality assurance people in dog food factories get paid good money to chow down on Chum's, but I've yet to bring myself to do it.

Rustlers-Breakfast-Muffin1-620x330[1].jpg

I ate: a Rustlers Breakfast aka the imitation McMuffin.

What's in it: it's the same kind of patty as their burgers, but in a weirdly plastic-lumpy muffin with fake cheese and a sachet of jam.

What it tasted like: first mouthful confirmed that it's a Rustlers burger alright. I usually regret these thing. However the taste improved after that mouthful and by the end I was smiling a surprised smile, much like the meticulously-groomed young chap in the OP.

Would, and will, eat again, until they replace it with something even less edible.

I tried the bottled SARAH MILLICAN'S SQUELCHY FANNY CUSTARD they sell in some supermarkets. The mouth feel wasn't very nice, and it was meant to be vanilla flavour but tasted like how Play Dough smells, but it did fill me up so it did its job.

The other night I was in Asda, and had a craving for biscuity goodness of the type that can only be cured with a good pack of chocolate HobNobs. However, there was a 50% off offer on said HobNobs, rather understandably resulting the entire lot being sold out. So I was forced to instead, choose the Asda own-brand equivalent, out of desperation.

They are not good. I got the chocolate variety, not the ones pictured, but it does not improve their prospects. Their crucial flaw is lacking the malty, caramely warmth and aftertaste of a proper HobNob- Instead it tastes like a cross between a digestive, some cold rolled oats, and a dash of sawdust.

Avoid, even ate the bargain price of 40-odd pence.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Papa John's is my favourite of the big chains, I know what you mean about the sauce, but it's still better than most to me.
The most important thing to me on delivered pizza is the crust, and I think they do an excellent thin one.

I basically see actual pizza and takeaway pizza as two different foods, and set my expectations accordingly.

Pizza hut is actually unpalatable to me, though. The sauce tastes burned and it's just a bit rank in general - I've avoided them long enough to recall the details of why they were so disgusting.

I might give this a try. I used to love cooking, but since I got with my current missus I've done very little of it thanks to the fact she's both fussy and a veggie.

None of the stuff I used to like making works quite as well with meat substitutes, because most of it revolved around the way meat reacts to different cooking techniques; and even my signature lasagne is no good because it rested on my secret pork/beef mixture*.

She doesn't even like mushrooms so I've no idea where to start sometimes.

*Ready to be triggered as fuck, cheflads?

The secret was squeezing the filling out of Richmond sausages for the pork component.

Veggie mince ranges from awful to alright, but never good. If you're not careful it can easily overpower the flavour of a sauce once it's mixed in. My top tip is to avoid Quorn or Tesco's own brand frozen mince as they are the worst. Very fine dehydrated soya mince is good at absorbing flavours.

There seems to be some kind of burger patty shortage at the supermarket so I had to buy the expensive ones. It all looked so promising, massive and full of saturated fat that barely shrunk in the pan.

But they're shit. Biting into one is like eating a ripe peach in terms of juices but entirely it's flavourless. I don't get how you can fuck up so paradoxically unless they're absolutely packing breadcrumbs in and then drizzling lard over the top.

I always put a good helping of salt and pepper on burgers before I fry them, and in the end they're so covered in barbecue sauce, onion and fuckloads of gooey edam that you don't really taste the beef so much either way.

I have a distinct memory of the sort of burgers I used to have at my auntie's house when I was a kid, where I'd just have them on their own on a plate with some chips and beans. They were delicious. I've never found anything that compares, in shops or restaurants or anywhere else. They had a specific, rich, almost creamy taste.

Most catering and takeaway, indeed the best tasting, best cooking burgers have a very interesting mix of fats, heart meat and other cheaper cuts. That's where the flavour and juiciness is burgerlads, it's in the heart. Burgers and sausages should never be the "prime cuts" as there's generally no fat in them and no exercise on those muscles to add character.

I might've said something about the "head to tail" cuisine thing before on here, the same food movement that's against an industrial usage of offal meat in processed products, and wholeheartedly against mechanically recovered meat that at least helps feed the nation via chicken nuggets. I despise that movement - not for what it stands for, but for the clear class-based snobby hypocrisy of it, don't use that offal meat, just in case twig-botherers can have an ironic meal of liver and kidneys to impress the area media marketing communicator. They'd hate it otherwise. Yuck, this burger has....heart in it! Ewwww! I'd like to talk to the manager please. Get to fuck. [/rant]

I lived off roasted lamb hearts at uni, I could get 4 for £1.20, stuffed them with fried onion, garlic, herbs and rice. I now mix the meat part of my diet between processed crap and good sausages from the butcher, I've recently gotten pre-prepared tripe and some cow bones, as I'm a Northern weirdo who likes it and makes the most lovely Polish style tripe soup from it.

Burgers really live and die on their fat content, to me. 20% fat from anywhere on the animal will work, but the traditional shoulder and top/silverside blend you can't really go wrong with.

While I don't doubt a bit of offal in there for flavour is pretty good, I question the claim that it is common practice at any level of the industry. The "best" burger to me is nothing but minced beef, salt and pepper. Binders change the texture too much and again, with 20% fat, the flavour is always going to be there.

Food poisoning is a lot rarer than people think.

The usual suspect is e. coli, because it's a hardy little bastard, but things like camp and salmonella are actually vanishingly rare these days. Camp is so piss weak and fussy of an organism that we often fail to grow it in the lab under ideal conditions, so unless you're licking a roadkill pigeon carcass I really struggle to imagine how people manage to become infected with it.

This is why I always go with 1 star hygeine rating takeaways. All the built up grease on the hotplate they haven't wiped down in 16 years is what gives it the flavour.

Not in the consumer market, but heart is a very common ingredient in catering products. A beef burger patty is only required to contain 62% meat and an "economy burger" can contain as little as 47% meat.

I can't say I've ever come across a catering burger full of heart, but then again, I've never worked in a food van. My assumption would be that the non-meat portion would be mostly bread crumbs, which are cheaper even than heart or other offal.

I'm not trying to say I don't believe you, I'm sure you're right, I'm just curious as to where you've been that this is so common.

Go into any cash and carry, find the cheapest box of burgers and have a look at the ingredients list. Odds are that beef heart is fairly high up the list. Rusk is an important bulking agent, but you can't use nearly as much as you could in a sausage without ruining the texture. The really cheap non-halal burgers include a fair amount of pork and mechanically reclaimed chicken.

I think the main culprit (apart from people not washing their hands and equipment after handling raw meat), is those people who insist that a chicken has to be washed under the tap before you cook it.

No. The one challenge with steel/glass tables is that they are very uncomfortable to sit at though. By all means use them for worktops, but metal/glass is much too cold for your arms to rest on. It's why all those people who have fancy glass desks at work are actually twats, they're almost impossible to sit and type at.

Today I have tried Aldi's vegan steak bake.

It was missing a kick, possibly a bit of black pepper would have done the trick, so it was a bit like eating slightly bland gravy lava with barely discernable chunks of soya protein and onion in it. The filling isn't evenly distributed so around a third of the pasty is biting into hollow pastry.

I reviewed that before, probably in a different thread. I wasn't keen on it, although I'd rate it higher than the Aldi one, but I wasn't overly surprised by this as Quorn mince, especially the kind they use in ready meals, is shite.

Today I have tried Tofoo sage and onion sizzlers, sausages to me and you. The tagline is 'tofu with taste' but this is a grave misnomer; there was a vague hint of sage and onion but it was largely eating nothingness. The texture had no integrity and it falls apart in your mouth the moment you bite into it.

Usual price is £3 for 4 sausages in Waitrose, but Co-op sometimes have them on offer for £2.50.

Appreciate this review. They make pretty good plain/smoked tofu, it must be said - particularly if you press it properly. I don't particularly love their other products that I've tried though.

Taste-wise, strongly recommend. It's in the meat aisle in Tesco's, which is a bit confusing. The burgers are excellent!

I've been into these lately, and they are peng AF, as I believe the kids would say.

They manage to achieve an impressively robust crunch, without the kind of splintering, and sticking in your gums like Doritos or Kettle Chips. The flavouring is an ideal level of spice intensity for a crisp- It's tangy and punchy enough to be moreish, without building too much of a serious heat if you indulge in an extended munch. They'd be an excellent accompaniment to a light alcoholic beverage, but you don't feel compelled to quench your thirst during eating. The back of the pack appears to recommend salsa, but honestly I don't see it being necessary, nor particularly enhancing the experience.

Overall I would recommend these if you are shopping for a large bag of crisps in the £1-£2 segment. A year ago they could be found on introductory offers, but now you will have to keep your eye out for the weekly rotation to catch them for £1. I daresay they may even have supplanted the Walker's Sensation Peking Spare Rib Oriental Cracker as my premium crisp of choice.

I was very impressed. They aren't exactly the same recipe as a Greggs vegan roll, which I am missing terribly to be honest - slightly less fat in the pastry, but still very good indeed; flaky and light. The sausage part could do with a touch more filling, but overall, good eating.

Of course you can - and there are definitely some more elaborate pizza recipes that don't have any cheese.

But some of the vegan cheeses actually melt and have the right level of "goo" when cooked, now - particularly the Pizza Express in-restaurant ones (I suspect its a lot to do with their ovens, but also because the melting-cheese recipes are just getting a lot better).

I don't mind veg-sweets but there is a noticeable difference in texture. That doesn't have to be a bad thing if its something juicy like Percy Pig but it's much more chewy, like an edible gum.

If you fancy a cunt-off then think its fucked that vegan options have become much more numerous than gluten free.

The older I get, the less tolerance for spicy food I have. Crystal hot sauce once tasted too bland and vinegary, but now it tastes alright. Plus, an almost half-litre bottle is £2.20 in my local Arab sklep, which is a bargain.

Today I have tried tried Aldi's 'no chicken' nuggets, which are part of their Plant Menu range.

When I broke into the first one I got the unmistakable whiff of a chicken nugget. The first bite tasted vaguely like a chicken nugget, but then it was... nothingness. The rest didn't taste of anything; it was just biting into warm nothingness entombed in breadcrumbs.

I wouldn't recommend these.

Today I have tried the Unbelievabull Burger by The Vegetarian Butcher. It has a pleasant amount of depth and richness to it, considerably better than the ones they make for Burger King. The only drawback is the price; you're usually looking at around £3, possibly a bit more, for a couple of them. I wouldn't say one of these is three times better than a Linda McCartney mozzarella burger.

Last night I made some dirty barbecue burgers for me and the Mrs. Hers were veggie with Richmond non-meat burgers. Mine were meat with Morrison's "Ultimate Burger".

I have to hand it to Morrison's. Those burgers were juicy and tremendously flavoursome. It was a real rich, beefy flavour which you often simply don't get in burgers, even gourmet ones. The texture wasn't perfect, but I don't think I ever will find a burger that satisfies me in that regard.

I tried a bite of the Richmond meatless ones, and they weren't half bad actually. Definitely didn't taste quite like a burger, but the texture was surprisingly good. They could do with being bigger though.

For a topping, I fried some diced onions, along with some Linda McCartney meat-free hoi-sin shredded duck. When it was close to done I put a big dollop of Reggae Reggae sauce in to caramelise. I know this sounds like an odd combination, but the richness of the hoi-sin flavouring really goes with the jerk barbecue flavour, and makes a fantastic, near indistinguishable pulled pork substitute.

I'm convinced that the Ritter business model accounts for being nice but not giving you too much for your money. This is something at my age I consciously think about when venturing into the chocolate or, more commonly, pastry aisle when I feel I've earned a treat.

If I buy something nice that is in large quantity then I will stuff it in my face in one sitting.
If I buy something okay but in large quantity then it has a chance of sitting in the cupboard for a bit. Like ginger biscuits as opposed to chocolate hobnobs.

So there you have it, ginger biscuits and Ritter Sport, good for you.

These (>>13885) were surprisingly nice. I assumed from the packaging that they came with a bit of sauce but instead it was just chunks in a 'curry marinade' that seemed more-or-less be korma paste.

I don't know why I still get excited over novelty cereal. The Sainsburys offering seems to have a good crunch but tastes exactly the same as the last years Christmas tree cereal i.e. slightly bitter cardboard. This just takes away the magic and probably leads to horrible workplace moral.

When you said pie there I was thinking of an actual pie and was trying to visualize a hot-dog stuffed pie crust. Would there just be a single circumference of hot dog or multiple rings? If single, would the ring be at the top of the bottom? Perhaps there's some sort of sliced hot-dog meshwork throughout the pastry like a kind of atherosclerotic reinforced culinary concrete.

Altough, authentic east-asian flavours in traditional English pie form would be kind of interesting.

When I lived in Shanghai there was only one pie shop in the entire city and Brits would flock from miles around and fight each other for the pies. And the pies were only 'just ok' compared to Western fair.

"Heston salt beef pretzel sub" from Waitrose. Salt beef, sliced gherkins, emmental cheese, mayonnaise, and weak American mustard. On paper it doesn't sound like a particularly good combination, but it works. It's a supermarket sandwich that's actually tasty and doesn't come across as something you've resigned yourself to buy because you need a cheap and quick meal. I think I would go so far as to say it's the best supermarket sandwich I've ever tried.

I'd call this a quick Veganuary update, but some of these are vegetarian:

Sainsbury's goats cheese and caramelised onion pies were really nice but there was hardly any onion in them. These might have already been cleared out as they were reduced Christmas fodder.

Lidl's vegan sausage rolls were alright. I'd have them again.

Lidl's vegan pasties were shit.

I don't think Aldi are doing much for Veganuary as they already have a decent vegan range, but I'll look to try their meat-free sausages and meatballs when I get the chance.

I had some Co-Op sausages last night; they were fucking aweful. Irresistable brand, apple&something and 'caramelised onion' flavoured. 74% pork. They might have been alright had I not eaten 9 - they couldn't have been that bad after all but the sweetness of the onion and apple made me feel sick.

Perhaps he's referring to the etymological root. In any case, a sausage that's only 74% pork does not deserve the 'Irresistible' tag. Personally I won't get out of bed for a sausage that isn't 90% pure.

14086 Sizzl'n Medium Kickin' Sour Cream Pringles
snapshotimagehandler_1778664628.jpg
140861408614086
I'm not super keen on all the seppo style apostrophe abbreviatin' used in the marketing of this but give me a souped up version of a classic flavour crisp in a black bag and I'm on board to dip my toe in at least (see also: Walkers Max)

Sour Cream is the most staple Pringles flavour and as a result is perhaps the most overlooked other than plain. These crisps have a good amount of dust and have the same basic flavour profile of their forebear and looking at the ingredients it seems like they're using the standard dust supplemented with chili extract. The structure of the crisp is springy and brittle and calls to mind eating Cheese & Onion Discos in the playground in the 90s.

One would find these pair well with a sour cream and chive dip, or perhaps garlic, if looking to soften the heat. Otherwise a spicy salsa, or even some sriracha would work well to enhance the spice component of the snack.

They would pair well with mature gouda and Mexicana cheese and Reisling wine.

I placed several of these on a sandwich with Emmental cheese and coronation chicken and was promptly sent on a day trip to flavourtown.

Tried a couple of Aldi's Plant Menu sausages:

- The "veggie sausages" with black pepper and sage taste alright, but they're mostly chickpea so they've got dryness and texture like a falafel.

- The "meat-free sausages" are nice and have a porky taste to them. I'd rate them above the Richmond equivalent.

I've also got their butternut and tomato sausages and their knock-off Linda McCartney rosemary and red onion ones to have at some point.

Today I have tried salt and vinegar Quavers. The first thing that concerned me was, when I opened the packet, I got a whiff of what smelled like boiled eggs that have been sat around for a while rather than anything resembling salt and vinegar. They don't really taste of anything. You get that acidic vinegar tang in your mouth but there's not much going on in the way of flavour. It was like eating a packet of stale Quavers that still had their crunch to them.

Iceland had ostrich burgers going cheap so I just had one. If you served it to me and told me it was beef, I'd have believed you -- I know the spices make the taste of a burger as much as the meat but it just had that beefy taste and smell.

Its incredible leanness makes really dry and waxy though, my mouth still feels like it's coated in wax, and I ended up slathering butter and burger relish on the bun which offset just how low-calorie they are.

Back to burgers: I just ordered some of these, I remember having these (or something similar) when I was a younglad in the '90s and can't remember if I liked them or not. Hoping they've got that proper dirty roadside burger taste to them as I've been craving something processed of late.
In any case, I would still like to pin my colours to the mast of dirty burgers being equally valid to premium butcher's own mixes. Walking about a Sunday market in the before times was always markedly improved by wolfing down a £3 catering grade burger. In the same situation, I really don't think eating a premium burger done medium rare and served in a brioche bun, dripping its juices down my front and however nice it may be, would do. Different times, different places, different burgers.

Does anybody have a favourite cheap, dirty and commercially available burger?

Bigos is awesome, you just have to cook it yourself with 2 types of cured sausage, beef, chicken, loads of marjoram, garlic, beer, tomatoes, apples, juniper berries, pepper etc. etc. The jars are okay in a pinch, and those empty Pamapol jars are great.

Not otherlad but carbon footprint is bollocks, because it means nothing unless you can somehow shape consumer trends so powerfully that near enough everyone in the entire country is eating lentils or whatever. Without that it's entirely academic.

There are other areas where a more direct impact on carbon emissions is possible without shifting the blame to consumers and then using magical thinking to expect it to help.

Strange thing, actually, whenever I hear someone bring up the fact vast tracts of land across the world are being transformed and cultivated for soya monoculture, the blame for this is higher demand on soya for vegetarianism and not the vastly more inefficient production of meat with the soya as fodder, not food, which is clearly more wasteful and prone to greenhouse gas emissions.

Yes? And? It's not the processing or the transport of the final product that's the issue. It's the land, water and cost of creating the calories for the cattle to feed on. You can grow, slaughter and eat your own cows if you want but if you're doing it on a regular basis then the various requirements of feeding and keeping the thing alive grow massively.

The point of that argument is that you're blaming the choices of individuals to eat a particular type of meat rather than the system that offers them very little in terms of viable alternative choices.

This is a pathetic excuse for inaction, particularly in this case. There's an entire aisle of viable alternatives in any major supermarket. Reducing your meat intake or going vegetarian or vegan is ludicrously easy.

"The system doesn't offer viable choices" might just about hold for transport or heating, but food is the one area where it's cheaper and better for you to make sustainable choices.

79% of the UK public identify as meat eaters (this is an understatement since 9% are "flexitarian" or "semi-vegetarian" but whatever, let's take 79%.) That's 52,653,500 people. One person is thus 0.00000002% (rounded) of the UK's meat eating population. For an illustration of how tiny an impact that is: you have a 0.000002% chance of being hit by lightning and a 0.000000071% chance of winning the lottery. One person's choices mean nothing at this scale. The only sane thing to do is to round to zero.
"Ah, but if we all acted--!" yes, well we don't all act in concert because we're not fucking ants. Unless you've got some impressive mechanism for collective action like some kind of food eater's trade union, bugger off.

Eat whatever you like, but don't pretend that you're making a difference. Saving the planet from disaster is a regulatory matter, not a voluntary one.

Now shut up and post food reviews.

> you're just shooting yourself or your own genes in the foot.
When the third world war comes, the meat-eaters shall fight true and strong, full of meaty-power. The vegetarians will surrender immediately and be slaughtered by the Chinese. And when the war is over, the meat-eaters will celebrate by killing the fatted calf, and live happily ever after, passing on their genes as they do so. The end.

Japanese style/coated peanuts are one of the finest snacks going. I have to be in a particular mood to sit and eat a whole bag of nuts, but these Shalimar ones are too moreish. The tandoori ones are by far the tastiest.

I know a lot of Japanese snacks are something people giggle at because of their strange looking flavour combinations, but they absolutely got snacking nuts right.

Your vote is something like 1/72,200 (0.000014%, several orders of magnitude greater) and takes place on a single day where every adult in the country is at least expected to go out and make a conscious decision about who to vote for in a ballot which cannot be altered after the fact. It is in no way comparable to "voting" with your wallet in a chaotic marketplace where a billion decisions are being taken or not taken every second and the seller is always trying to undermine your "vote". (Oh, you "voted" against buying the chicken? Well, we'll mark down the price 10% and someone else will "vote" for it now they can afford it. Democracy in action!)

Had some Korean fried chicken with rice and curry. The fried chicken was far superior (in terms of skin crunch and chicken flavour) to almost every other normal fried chicken shop I've been to (Chester's excepted), but it ought to be at about twice the price. Also far less greasy and oily than most normal fried chicken.

The curry was almost like chip shop curry, and went well as both a rice covering and dipping sauce. Would never really have thought to combine the two before, but would recommend.

I wasn't so keen on the radish pieces.

Those cubes are too small, a correct piece of pickle should be no smaller than 1" x 1" x 1". These cubic centimetre pickles are what they serve up in oz also and don't have enough mass to get a good pop when you bite into them which is a big part of what's good about the mouthfeel.

Looks very similar to Karaage, the Japanese version of fried chicken. From the colour of the batter I'd guess like the japs, they're using a starch instead of flour. With Karaage it's typically just potato starch and egg, but this isn't too far off. That's why it's not oily, pure starch doesn't absorb fat in the same way.

These were a disappointment. The 'ruby' chocolate is essentially softer white chocolate, so it didn't have that satisfying crunch when you bite into it. There also wasn't enough raspberry sauce in the ice cream.

It also didn't help that these were four for a quid in Farmfoods but it scanned in as a chocolate cream tart and I was charged £1.99 for them.

Long as it's black you don't have much to worry about. At worst it's some trouble further up the digestive system like an ulcer but medication, supplements and some foods will cause it. Bright red is where you have to worry.

I think you have that the wrong way round lad. Bright red is usually a haemorrhoid or anal fissure (although it can be colon cancer), black is anything from an ulcer to stomach / bowel cancer.

Also a fan of her nuggets, it's just to exorbitant markup that puts me off.
I don't imagine it's hard to replicate the vague taste/texture of rigorously processed meat, which is probably why nugs are leading. I had a Beyond burger the other day, fried on the skillet, and it was alright, but it tasted like someone had fried it with cleaning fluid instead of oil. I'm not sure if this is the fault of my lass or the company itself. I'm assuming the latter tbf.

I've replaced biscuits with salt and black pepper crackers without using any cheese. They have quite a nice little peppery pinch to them and I don't feel the urge the snaffle the whole box.

Not tried dunking them in tea because then I'd only end up with a salty cuppa.

"Snacking cheese" as a concept doesn't seem like a habit of someone who wants to live long. I'm not really sure what to make of these. They're not even slightly moreish, just pleasant to be able to try one or two to find out what they taste like. As a vegetarian replacement for pork scratchings they fail.
Very strong truffle flavour though.

I don't wish to overshadow your cheese opinions with my own. However, I don't think XXXtreme Mature Cheddar is very good. It ought to be renamed something like "Smoker's Cheddar", so people with blown out taste buds know what to go for. The texture isn't great for much either, ruling it out of recipes because it lacks the fat to melt properly.

Naughty vegan as a name irritates me. It is proper oxymoron shit. If you are removing the slaughter of an animal from your product, how naughty could your product realistically be? You would have to overcome the base level of 'naughty' contained in the normal product. Unless they are diddling kids on the side this is flagrant false advertising.

From what I can gather, Quorn is named after the Quorn Specialities Company from Leicester, which had a foxhound as its key branding because it was named after the Quorn Hunt in the nearby village of Quorn. The Quorn Specialities Company were taken over by a number of companies, eventually ending up as part of Rank Hovis who developed mycoprotein and decided to name it after the Quorn Specialities Company despite what we know as Quorn today having nothing to do with the village of Quorn in its ~35 year history as it was developed in Marlow in Buckinghamshire and its factories are in North Yorkshire and Stockton-on-Tees.

People go vegan for a variety of reasons. I can understand that some people would enjoy having meatballs or sausage rolls that taste a bit weird with the trade-off that they didn't come from the death of an animal.

With your 'squid' for example, it's just unwieldy to call or 'textured vegetable protein in the style of squid'.

Almost nobody is quitting meat because they think meat's taste or texture is bad. So it makes sense to attempt to replicate those tastes and textures in vegan/veggie form.

Also, it's just the majority of people's jumping off point. I imagine there's a lot fewer fake sausage brands somewhere with a large buddhist population, where the food culture was never meat based to begin with. But in britain, you'd have to struggle to find someone whose idea of food was not centred around meat and two veg.

Perhaps leaning into actual veggie cuisine would be more interesting, but it's just never going to sell as well as soysages.

Seeing as we're on about veggies:-

>The Co-operative Group is slashing the price of its plant-based burgers and sausages to push back against the “unfair” price of vegan food. Consumers trying to reduce or give up meat often complain alt-meat is more expensive than buying the real thing. To that end the Co-op is making a seven figure investment in its vegan range Gro with some products, including burgers and sausages, more than halving in price to bring them into line with the meat-based equivalent sold in its 2,600 stores.

>Eating plant-based food “shouldn’t cost you more money” said Jo Whitfield, the Co-op Food chief executive, of the move which is part of its bigger plan to reach net zero emissions by 2040. “It’s an industry-wide standard that plant-based alternatives are usually priced higher than their meat and dairy counterparts … this disparity is unfair to those following vegetarian, vegan and flexitarian diets.”

>The reductions in the Gro range include vegan sausages down from £3 to £1.45 and the price of meat-free burgers slashed from £3.00 to £1.35. Meat-free mince is now £1.75 rather than £3.00. The reductions could save a family choosing vegan alternatives more than a hundred pounds a year, the Co-op said.

https://www.theguardian.com/business/2021/may/05/co-op-slashes-the-price-of-plant-based-food-in-quest-for-net-zero-emissions

They're slashing the price of their plant based range and the reason they're doing so is for environmental reasons rather than to do with the ethics of eating animals. If they can reduce prices by more than half and still make a profit it shows how they've been absolutely rinsing people until now.

>If they can reduce prices by more than half and still make a profit it shows how they've been absolutely rinsing people until now.

Possibly (probably) but there's another factor, economies of scale. It could be that they now sell enough plant based food to be able to make more of it at a time, which makes it cheaper. If previously they were chucking 50% of their stock out as it expired, then they'd have to mark the prices up a lot more than the bacon that flies off the shelves. The other possibility is that they still don't sell much of the stuff, and the price drop is either not profitable or barely profitable, in an attempt to sell more and thus end up solving the economy of scale problem from the consumer end first.

Or, you're right, they just assumed vegans are rich and knew they'd pay eight quid for a burger.

The thing that gets me about so much meat/dairy alternative stuff is that is seems to be marketed in a 'super hip and cool sticking it to the man' way, but as filtered through the lens of a 43-year-old marketing executive named Steve.

Does anyone truly believe they are participating in a counterculture by buying textured soy protein from Iceland?

Also, had a piri-piri chicken and jollof rice ready meal from Asda and it was surprisingly good - the chicken wasn't dry at all and semed to have been marinated properly.
