    Doesn't look too bad, would probably try one but I bet they would be expensive.

    I’d be all over that if it actually tasted like meat.

    Love a bit of meat in my mouth.

    I don't get the need to have food that tastes like meat when you choose not to eat meat??

    Same to be fair, but as a meat eater if it genuinely tastes like meat then why not?

    Don't get the 'bleeding bit.' Why? Why would I want that? Or anyone else for that matter.

    Weird.

    I'm not that bothered about eating Quorn etc. Some people act all disgusted but it isn't really that bad.

    If those burgers come out and they are a decent price compared to actual meat I'll give them a go.

    Ah, but what if you love the taste of meat, but choose not to eat it for humanitarian (animaltarian) reasons?

    I stopped eating meat after watching a film about how animals were treated on farms and in slaughter houses and it really, really upset me.

    Never eaten meat since. I would say I like my veggie food to taste EXACTLY like meat, so I don't ever have to eat the meat, yet still get the flavours I crave.

    Makes sense to me. :)

    Salad? Waiter, excuse me but I think there's been a mistake - you seem to have brought me the food that my food eats. :)

    Don't have milk either.

    Pretty much a vegan in all but name. I have a lactose intolerance.

    Isn't it loads more expensive to be vegan?

    For example if you wanted to pack a meal out with Quorn it can get quite expensive.

    Quorn often isn’t vegan

    It's the texture I hate. Otherwise I'd happily do Quorn.

    If you were to use Mince in Lasagne or something you can't tell or the same if you put the chicken block things in a curry. Don't think I could eat it on it's own.

    Vegan IS loads more expensive if you don't want to just eat vegatables and fruit.

    Went to a vegan festival at the old cathedral and they had cakes and 'chocolate' and biscuits and ice 'cream' and all sorts and have to say, it was all delicious, but very expensive.

    A bar of chocolate was something like £4. Was handmade though.

    Has anyone tried that Swedish Glace vegan ice cream?

    Everyone I give it to can simply not believe it is vegan. It is so creamy.

    That's the thing that would be offputting. People won't pay silly money when they can feed a family with meat for less with the same sort of quality.

    Have only used Quorn Mince and bits of chicken and would quite happily eat it all the time in meals but it's cheaper to just get mince.

    Same with Gluten free stuff as well.

    Don't like the Quorn mince to be honest. Find it a bit bland. Prefer the chicken stuff.

    Had a Quorn chicken and mushroom pie and it was bloody lovely!!

    Must say I am not keen though on veganism being rammed down our throats all the time.

    And Quorn have just brought out Vegan 'ham' slices. I already eat the veggie ones, but now my local Tesco has replace the veggie ones with vegan ones and they are now 50p more.

    Sounds to me like they have taken ingredients out and then put the price up. ;)

    I know somebody who turned Vegan / got a tattoo about it and then forced their dog and children to be vegan. What's all that about? It's all about choice.

    My daughter decided she didn't want to eat meat and would be a pescetarian and just eat fish. Think she lasted about a month and then wanted chicken, that's when we were getting quorn for her.

    Yep, exactly. All about choice. Never ever moaned at anyone for them choosing to eat meat and never ever mention vegetarianism unless someone asks me straight out about it.

    One of the main reasons I don't go full on vegan is because I don't think it is fair on my family.

    Nearly every restaurant has a veggie option, but it is not the same for a vegan one.

    Don't think it is fair on them for them to have to restrict their choices when we dine out in order to incorporate me.

    What about Quorn mince in chilli? I've never had it but surely if you can still taste the difference in that, then you need to add more chillies.

    It’s the texture. That’s why I’d be all over this as adding ‘blood’ to it is all part of the texture.

    Yeah I suppose. But the blood in beef isn’t blood anyway. Plus ketchup is shite for kids.

    My daughter is now a vegetarian. It does encourage us to eat more healthily I think..a more balanced diet.

    As for quorn, the mince is good in lasagna and bolognese - none of us mind the difference from meat, I actually prefer it.

    Some Quorn stuff is lovely, so too some Linda McCartney stuff.

    There are some poor ones amongst their ranges too though. Had to find out the hard way what was tasty and was a good meat substitute and what tasted like cardboard.

    The LM sausages are very nice I would say. Not so keen on the Quorn sausages.

    Quorn southern fried chicken is nice and I like the Quorn roast too.

    I am now thinking of selling my soul to seitan though.

    Chickened out of trying it at Fargo Village, but mainly because I put myself on a strict diet at the time.
