Fake Meat: Great or Gross?

I became a vegetarian when I was nine, so I remember eating meat. I don’t feel like I “miss” it, and in fact I find the idea of eating meat completely unappealing. I do enjoy the occasional veggie burger or mock chicken, but if a meat substitute looks or tastes too much like meat, I get grossed out and can’t eat it.


Companies like Impossible Foods and Beyond Meat are making increasingly meat-like plant-based burgers and other meat substitutes. Granted, they are marketing to non-vegetarians as well, but will their efforts pay off? Will these products be meat-like enough for non-veggies? Will they be too meat-like for vegetarians?


What’s your take? Do you eat meat substitutes?
