Yeah...that's why they're pushing "plant-based" as a buzzword instead of "vegan", which is more politically-correct & less offensive to meat-eaters, I guess. That, and most people associate vegan with healthier whole foods, whereas plant-based stuff sounds healthier, but is really an amalgamation of various ingredients that aren't necessary "better for you" than the regular product. Hence, a veggie patty on top of, well, meat (egg).Is it just me or is the thought of a veggie replacement sausage on a breakfast sandwich with egg a bit weird.
If you are talking the dunkin doughnuts Gardein patty try it out it’s pretty good. Sort of dry like most of the veggie proteins but seasoned right and doesn’t hit your stomach like a brick.Is it just me or is the thought of a veggie replacement sausage on a breakfast sandwich with egg a bit weird.
Was coming here to post this adEhhh
Burger King is re-"molding" the image of its signature Whopper in a nauseating new ad campaign that promotes efforts to eliminate artificial preservatives and other additives from the company's menu.www.cnn.com
If you've ever had a yogurt-covered raisin, it's kind of the same idea...yogurt-wrapped & fruit-flavored. Just more chewy, because it's a Skittle, and sweeter. If you've ever had yogurt-covered Craisins, it's more like that.
Hm, I stopped there twice in December in Minneapolis and it was just as good as the first time I tried it in Denver the previous year.So I went to Shake Shack the other day & got the sous-vide chicken sandwich...man it's gone downhill The portion size was small & nothing about it was good. Sorry Shake Shack...Popeye's owns the market now! 2x as thick chicken & way better.
I just wish Popeye's had Shake Shack's buttermilk herbed mayo on it. Then it'd be perfect!
I tried A&W's cod burger and it's quite tasty.I also tried their Cod sandwich. I made it 2 bites in & quit. There was hardly any fish in it (more crust than fish, I should have taken a picture) & the fry job was over-done (not burnt to black but too brown & dry). Very unpleasant to eat. Another meh.
Kinda like the chicken equivalent of pork rinds?Flock Chicken Chips:
* Chips made from chicken skin
* 3 flavors: Original, BBQ, Salt & Vinegar
* Keto-friendly, low-carb, gluten-free
This is an interesting concept. There's a restaurant near one of my clients that does a chicken meal with extra chicken skin on the side done up like crispy chips and it's ah-may-zing. These chips sounded promising, so I ordered all 3 flavors. While they're not terrible, they're not what I had hoped for:
* They are really expensive. $24 for an 8-pack makes them $3 for a personal-sized bag. Free shipping if you buy 3 packs. I got one of each flavor, so $72 out the door for 24 bags. I justified the price because they are so high in protein (13 grams per bag)
* They smell barny as soon as you open them. Gamey. If you've ever done sausage in a natural casing, kind of like that. Not quite farm-poopy smelling but it's got that funk. It's not horribly strong or anything, but it is noticeable.
* With all of the crazy extra-crunchy cheetos & double-crunch Ruffle chips, these weren't in a league of their own crunch-wise. A nice crunch, but a bit soft at the same time.
* None of them had any salt flavor. Not even the salt & vinegar. I thought about sprinkling them with salt to improve the somewhat bland flavor, but I don't think it would have stuck to them.
* They were all pretty bland, even the BBQ flavor. Like, you're just eating crunch. Crunch that smells kinda barny.
Terrible? No. Great? Promising, but nah. I like the concept, the execution was...underwhelming. I'll keep packing them in my lunch until I run out because they are high in protein and they were expensive, but I won't be buying anymore. Meh.
