After happening upon a
vegetarian food festival that was serving up 10,000 free ‘meatless meat’ burgers, a few weeks ago we asked our facebook friends
“Would you eat a burger that tasted like meat but wasn’t meat?”
This is what some people had to say.
I eat food. Fake meat as long as I know its fake is fine, if it tastes GOOD. Ive had some thats pretty good and some that was like cardboard…

substitute food is ok too, like the chicken or turkey made to be like bacon? it even looks like it, it’s fakon
Tasted like meat (barely), but wasn’t meat? We’ve all had McDonalds! Meatatarian right here.
now Im thinking about the Matrix….everything tastes like chicken… 😀
I was a vegan for a year and thought it ridiculous to have fake bacon etc. I am a purist I guess.
Veggie meat is not bad but it can never substitute the real thing. Mmmm steaaaaak….
No thanks for Fake meat. I eat meat and thats that. Why would you want fake meat if you are not a meat eater?
I’m a carnivore. The real thing please :). And since most of the pretend stuff is made with soy, it’s pretty much all over bad for boys . . .

Must be real. Eating something that tastes like meat but is NOT meat seems kinda like being lied to. Heh
I’m vegan. Since last October. My tastes have completely changed. I will eat a vegan burger. If it tastes like meat, I wouldn’t like it. If it tastes like lentils, beans, and vegetables, I love it. I have also lost my taste for cheese-like food.
I agree. When it’s fake meat part of me thinks Solvent Green!

I would and I have; the veggie burgers made by Yves have a texture and taste that is very similar to most mass-produced hamburgers (which contain a lot of fillers, such as breading).

i dont eat very much meat, hot dogs, salami ans bacon dont count as real meat lol but i can say that when i want to eat them i want to eat them and not something that tastes like them
Agreed. Did try the others and they taste awful!
I always want the real thing! Always!! But if I was at a party with a bunch of vegetarians….I’d eat the meatless one!
if it was healthy, why not… But no solyent greens for me… Or any of that lab grown crap… If I’m gonna eat meat, some needs to die for it… The ugly truth…
