The ultimate Impossible Burger vs. Beyond Meat Burger taste test

Recommended Posts

https://www.cnet.com/news/impossible-burger-vs-beyond-meat-burger-our-ultimate-taste-test/

 

Plant-based meat is taking the world by storm, with the Impossible Burger and Beyond Burger leading the charge. These two companies produce plant-based (but not exactly veggie) burgers that mimic the taste and texture of real beef burgers. You can find both burgers at various restaurants across the US, and Beyond Meat has been selling its faux beef at groceries stores for several years. Now, you can pick up Impossible Burger meat at grocery stores too -- that is, if you live in Southern California.

 

Since you can now cook both of plant-based meats at home, we decided to do the ultimate taste test and compare them side by side with the same ingredients. Check out the video to see which one we liked best, and learn everything you could ever want to know about these plant-based meats below.

one question about making vegies taste like beef, WHY? Isn't that what cattle are for?

 

Dishonorable mention: McDonalds for advertising some burgers as "100% beef" but they are able to make 100 % beef taste like cardboard. How stupid is that?

 

So the net effect is to make crap taste like beef, and make beef taste like crap. What am I missing?

To each, his own.  I don't care.

But I pronounce both as Nopeburgers.  Nadaburger. 

And I even eat seaweed.

Youeatitburger.

Well since the CEO's of both companies singed that letter to limit my gun rights, they can both **** off and stuff their fake meat up their ***es!

I swear, a 24 hour Rick Astley marathon would have been a better use of my time than watching that video.

Does it count if a plant died for you? Just asking....

6 of janice will need a nap before he can ponder that.

Bear with him.

Wait.  He won't kill the bear and eat it, will he?

I really want to try this test.  I see the Beyond meat at Kroger, but I think I will need to resort to BK to get the Impossible stuff.

Still mystifies me as to why a vegan or vegetarian would strive to make things taste like meat, but OK.  Maybe that's not the target market.

BK (or many others) don't taste like hamburgers.

So I don't think it's that hard to do.

No, plants aren't sentient or in the predator, prey category.  It's the kill or be killed that makes a good piece of meat.

I wouldn't eat it, but I might kill it if it's after me.

I don't eat anything that doesn't come out of a can or hasn't been covered in clear plastic.

The reason the Burger King Impossible burgers tastes just like their regular burgers is because their regular burgers taste like crap and they've had years of experience of making hamburgers taste like that.

I see no reason to eat fake meat.  This "unsustainable" tripe is stupid.  What is unsustainable it human population growth, if they are really worried about the environment they should work towards reducing world population - get the poor countries to quit squirting out kids.

If you really want to save a species,  make it acceptably edible.

I would have picked a different color than Green.

Maybe bright orange,  like mac & cheese.

(although,  it's not orange any more.  it's not good, any more, either.)
