I don't know why anyone would eat a boca burger now that gardein makes burgers. Very tasty and the same price at my local grocery store.


Side-note; anyone know whether this stuff is getting imported to the UK again? I know some veggie burger company had the rights to it and then stopped making it...

According to this, it's only in the US so far. http://www.unleashed.org.au/community/f ... php?t=6444

Has anyone tried it yet? I'm excited to have a convenient, non-soy, protein source.



Yes, I tried it last night. They compensate for the egg whites by using wheat protein and wheat starch. The flavor was okay but nothing earth shattering. I think it was barbecue. I pan fried it and chopped it into small pieces to have with my mixed vegetables. There was enough of the sauce in the burger that I didn't feel the need to add anything to it.

I'm not big on eating processed foods so I probably won't try this again for many months but I do recommend giving it a shot. I'm not a big fan of Quorn for obvious reasons but let's hope they will expand their line to include more vegan products. I think they want to see how well this sells before they do that.

Here's a chance to let quorn know how annoying they are, stealing all the space in supermarkets and pushing out the vegan food: https://veganangst.wordpress.com/
Maybe we could organise a mass tweet to them or something? If we make enough noise they might give us a vegan burger here in the UK too?

Seems vegan quornis on it's way to the UK by September. Sounds likely to end up in Germany too.

I'm not actually sure if I'm happy about it, might push Fry's out even more, but on the other hand probably will lead to more people eating vegan food
