Today I have tried Richmond's meat-free sausages. In terms of texture they've got a satisfying crunchy skin to them, the most pork-like of any vegetarian sausage I've tried, although it does tend to get stuck on your teeth. The inside was slightly too dense for my liking. In terms of flavour they tasted vaguely like a pork sausage but it was largely just... nothingness. It was diluted pork.

They'd probably go well in a fry-up, but I wouldn't recommend getting them unless they were on offer.

Huel's chocolate option reminds me of Alpro's desserts. Overall I'd rate it as the best flavour I've tried as the vanilla tends to leave that scratchy feeling at the back of your throat.

Mate.

Fry bacon with it. Scoop out the innards, fry it in the pan with the bacon.

The seeds end up tasting like charred bacon, the flesh didn't impact the flavour of the bacon much but I guess had a very minor impact. But the fucking seeds dude, they tasted amazing.

I wanted to like them, and you're right they've got a skin on them, but I found the insides very bland and poor texture.

They're an accurate production of real Richmond sausages, then?

To be honest I think slightly shit sausages are best for a fry up. They should be a bulk, while the real flavour comes from good bacon, and scooping a bit of everything else up onto the same fork.

Cheap sausages at least have a flavour to them. The veggie Richmond sausages were about as close to tasting of nothing, without actually tasting of nothing, as you can possibly get.

It's surprisingly difficult to get decent vegetarian sausages. One of the supermarkets, possibly Asda, used to have a nice range of own-brand Lincolnshire and Cumberland ones but they stopped making them a while back.

I haven't had them in years. From what I can recall they're okay, but nothing to write home about. They've got a distinct taste, which isn't really meat-like; they're quite nice in a sausage butty with some sauce but, in my opinion, they don't really 'go' as part of a meal that you'd typically have had a sausage with. They remind me a bit of the ones you can make yourself with Sosmix.

Today I have tried Naanster's balti chicken filled naan, because it was reduced when I went to Co-op yesterday.

The naan bread was slightly soggy from being microwaved and felt rather glutenous. It also had an overpowering amount of nigella seeds. The filling was pleasant enough but there wasn't enough of it, particularly the chicken.

4.5/10.

There are actually four different varieties of Linda McCartney sausages. The Red Onion and Rosemary is the best one I think, while the Chorizo version should be avoided like the plague.

Today I have tried the Kashmiri size pizza from Co-op's new vegan range, Gro.

The pizza is topped with MozzaRisella, which is a cheese alternative derived from brown rice milk, spiced cauliflower and chili peppers, not that it really matters because the toppings are completely overwhelmed by the sauce. You're basically eating dough which tastes of chip shop curry sauce with a little bit of heat added. It could do with a little more texture and susbtance but it wasn't too bad.

I don't really see what the point of the rice cheese was. It didn't add anything apart from, like you say, making it look like someone had spaffed all over the pizza; certainly nothing in terms of flavour.

I've picked up a few Rustlers vegetarian burgers so that's likely to be my next review.

I had a vegan pizza with vegan mozzarella in a pub. I didn't really notice the mozzarella as the whole thing was piled high with rocket for some reason but it was pretty good. £11 which is what you'd probably pay for a pizza delivery which is weird considering it was a London high street pub where all the alcoholic drinks start at £5

It wasn't too bad, actually. I mean, you know what you're getting with a Rustlers burger. It could have done with a bit less coriander and a bit more mango chutney but it did the job. If I had another one I'd probably add in a slice of cheese as a topping.

The ones you get from Lidl are ok. You get a bigger pack for less money, and the meal itself is completely identical, I think they're from the same factory. But the mainstream supermarkets are just taking the piss, the prices are silly for the amount of food you get, those small packs like you've pictured have less food than there is plastic packaging.

Supermarket sushi is already fucked up from a purist or authenticity standpoint. I still like it but it's very much its own thing when compared to the fresh stuff.

Anyway, my mum likes the duck and chicken sushi packs, so at least we can agree she's fucking mental.

Quorn-Ultimate-Healthy-Vegan-Burger-FSRD.jpg
132381323813238
The 'Ultimate' burger is Quorn's attempt at making a so-called bleeding burger through the use of beetroot. It has to be the worst veggie burger I have ever eaten; I couldn't even finish it and I'll eat almost any old shite. I can't put my finger on precisely what it tasted of. Metallic? Cocoa powder? I don't know but it was certainly cheap and nasty (without actually being that cheap).

The attempts to mirror meat items always just bore me anyway, but it seems like a fundamental misunderstanding of why people like rare burgers to do something like this.

I can't wait for the tide to shift enough in veggie land that we start to see innovation over replication.

Beyond Meat isn't bad but given that it's basically reshaped dog food I find myself wondering if I should save myself a shitload of money by eating dog food instead. I've seen people eating dog food on telly so I know it's a possibility, apparently the quality assurance people in dog food factories get paid good money to chow down on Chum's, but I've yet to bring myself to do it.

Rustlers-Breakfast-Muffin1-620x330[1].jpg

I ate: a Rustlers Breakfast aka the imitation McMuffin.

What's in it: it's the same kind of patty as their burgers, but in a weirdly plastic-lumpy muffin with fake cheese and a sachet of jam.

What it tasted like: first mouthful confirmed that it's a Rustlers burger alright. I usually regret these thing. However the taste improved after that mouthful and by the end I was smiling a surprised smile, much like the meticulously-groomed young chap in the OP.

Would, and will, eat again, until they replace it with something even less edible.

>>13245 My boy's currently on this, cos he's a fatty after having his balls off:
Composition: Freshly Prepared Duck (29%), Sweet Potato, Freshly Prepared Wild Boar (15%), Dried Duck (14%), Chick Pea Flour, Tapioca, Duck Stock (2%), Tomato Pomace, Minerals, Vitamins, Yucca, Glucosamine (175 mg/kg), Methylsulfonylmethane (175 mg/kg), Chondroitin Sulphate (125 mg/kg), Dried Apple, Carrot Flakes, Lovage Powder, Seaweed Meal, Dried Cranberry, Aniseed and Fenugreek, Camomile Powder, Burdock Root Powder, Peppermint, Dandelion Herb, Thyme, Marjoram, Oregano, Parsley, Sage

Tastes OK. Probably better than Rustlers.

He also gets frozen chicken wings & drumsticks, which I choose not to eat raw, but they're Tesco own-brand stuff, so probably not actually toxic.

I tried the bottled SARAH MILLICAN'S SQUELCHY FANNY CUSTARD they sell in some supermarkets. The mouth feel wasn't very nice, and it was meant to be vanilla flavour but tasted like how Play Dough smells, but it did fill me up so it did its job. I don't think I could have it three times a day every day, but it wasn't awful.

The other night I was in Asda, and had a craving for biscuity goodness of the type that can only be cured with a good pack of chocolate HobNobs. However, there was a 50% off offer on said HobNobs, rather understandably resulting the entire lot being sold out. So I was forced to instead, choose the Asda own-brand equivalent, out of desperation.

They are not good. I got the chocolate variety, not the ones pictured, but it does not improve their prospects. Their crucial flaw is lacking the malty, caramely warmth and aftertaste of a proper HobNob- Instead it tastes like a cross between a digestive, some cold rolled oats, and a dash of sawdust.

Avoid, even ate the bargain price of 40-odd pence.

I've finally got around to trying the No Chick Strips from Iceland's vegan range. A lot of brands that try to replicate the texture of chicken with layers of layers of hydrated soya protein fuck it horribly by making it too chewy or too watery but these were spot on. In fact, they might be the best veggie chicken I've tried but they should be at that price.
