Did they eat the ones which they least liked the look of?
Pretty much yep! One family had 3 chickens, they cried about two of them but were happy to get stuck into Jenny because she was a dick.
I don't think I'd get upset about killing and eating a chicken, they're fucking idiots.
They’re basically PLANTS.
They are plants.
And they get quite bad tempered being rooted to the spot, too.
Whoever manages to make the first convincing vegan replacement for bacon (including the smell) and popularises it will win over a lot of vegan-curious people.
Bacon and cheese tend to be the things folk say they could "never" give up and I think that's why there's such a focus on getting a quality replacement for each but there are, of course, so many cheeses. Get me a good vegan blue cheese and I'll be cock-a-hoop.
I had This Isn’t Bacon this morning and it was shit.
I love a dirty Frazzle. I think I'd rather have those than a fake bacon. Although they are veggie rather than vegan, aren't they?
God, I really want a packet of Frazzles now.
I’ve never understood the hype for BACON. I’m much more of a sausage gal.
No. They're vegan, or at least some of the supermarket knock-off Frazzles are. I had a conversation with a deeply confused colleague about this after a few own-brand multipacks were offered around the team by a generous soul and I went with the bacon ones. She couldn't grasp that I was happily munching away on some bacon-flavour crisps but I had turned down the cheese and onion with actual cheese in them. The news that no bacon was used in the manufacturing process rendered the poor lass near dumbstruck.
That's certainly what it says on the toilet walls.
I remember my mother being similarly (goose) baffled by Pot Noodles.
Rotten isn't it? The name is terrible too, if a logical extension of the wearisome misspellings and abbreviations; baykonn, Bac'n. baquonne etc etc. But, telling they didn't go for something along the lines of "I Can't Believe It's Not Bacon" because no sane human could ever fail to distinguish them.
Oh aye, the Beef And Tomato has never even seen a cow, let alone includes any.
I love fake Bacon. And also Quorn Ham slices, I can eat them out the packet. I can't remember where I got them but I had fake Bacon lardons once which were amazing in a pasta dish.
Prince Philip at ease with vegan goose.
Ended up buying quite a few bits from Aldi's vegan range. Including a pizza with fake bacon. And some with jackfruit instead of meat. Will report back.
Jackfruit really is a load of old shite.
I had jackfruit instead of pulled pork once. There won't be a second time.
I just had M&S "Tofish" and chips for the first time.
And for the last time.
I don’t know how on earth tofu could ever be transformed into something even remotely approaching the texture of fish. Which clearly it wasn’t
It can make a very convincing pork or beef like texture (the little packets of "spicy bean curd" I get at the oriental food store sometimes), I think they compress it super tight or something from what I remember reading of all the different tofu production methods. But yeah fish style sounds like a challenge and a half
It's safe to say they haven't cracked it. It was poor.
I tried Quorn fake fish once. I won't be again.
And I've just eaten a VEGAN CHOCOLATE COIN from M&S. It was ALL RIGHT but RICE FLOUR is not really a substitute for MILK
The Linda McCartney's "fish" goujons are actually more than decent, they're the ones to have.
One thing I do love is quorn COCKTAIL SAUSAGES. They’re as gristly and addictively plain as the REAL THING.
Just had half a pack of this with my salad for lunch and it's TOP NOTCH
Yes! I think I prefer them to real cocktail sausages.
I love jackfruit and tofu, but not dressed up as fake meat
Why is mushrooms written like that though?! FUMING.
Yeah....as far as I can see, these are actually mushrooms? Unless oyster mushrooms are made from real oysters...
Beeph, chikkin, pawrq, bakaun etc, I get but m'shrooms? Phuq off.
Especially because you instinctively pronounce it em-shrooms. At least some of the others remain phonetic like beeph or chikkin.
Jackfruit is alright but I'm not excited about it, but tofu is great. Crispy tofu from the Chinese may be my favourite Chinese thing EVER!
I wasn't the only one then...
I've had some jackfruit curries in Sri Lanka and Malaysia that I adored.
I want crispy tofu now, though.
Jackfruit “pulled pork” is amazing.
