    Nice. Will give them a go.
    How do they compare with the Not Burger brand?

      I noticed the Quorn says 'Vegan'.

      Not Burger is vegetable protein, these are mycoprotein (fungii).

      Pretty good IMO. Get them for missus who's vege and she likes them too.
      Kinda like a chicken nugget texture with the crumb crispiness on a pan cook. Mild spicyness with some good flavour.

      Much prefer the Vegie Delights brand.

      Quorn can also cause some people allergic reactions.

      These are really good
      even my kids who are picky eaters really like them. Probably cause they dont taste like veggie burgers
      They kind of taste like chicken burgers to me

        Yep, it's too. Quorn is the only vegan mince that tastes and feels close to meat in a bolognese, and their chicken strips are favourites with my kids.

          thanks for the tip! will have to look for this. I tried that brand "The Alternative meat co." mince and it was fn awful
          i got it cause of this review article that said her bf couldnt tell the difference between that mince and real stuff when she made her spaghetti. Definitely was a BS article or her and her bf have no bloody taste buds as that stuff was so bad we had to throw it out after 2 days and the dog wouldnt even eat it. I tried my best to finish it over 2 days cause im tight and hate to waste food lol no one in the family would help me out.

          Have you tried Linda McCartneys?

          Last time I checked, Quorn mince isn't vegan as it contains egg white.

          TVP is an excellent and cheap vegan mince alternative.

      I just had:

      Vegan Gourmet Burger - let's just say their and my version of gourmet are different. (Prolly the most ville thing I've tasted in a long time, spat out, 2 bites enough).

      Hot and spicy burgers - OK, but have a bit of a musty flavor about them.

      Crumbed fish free fillets, lemon pepper - with tartare, a slice of biocheese and lettuce on soft white rolls these made a good filèt.

      Nuggets - not the best, a bit dry, but doused in sauce I guess as good as any.

      Would be nice if Quorn just finally ditched the animal secretions in their shrinking vegetarian range and got on board with the times.

      Both are horrible if you’ve been a life-long vegetarian.

      They have what I presume is a “meaty” texture that is unfamiliar and feels disgusting as you chew it.

      However, meat-eaters seem to like them. So I guess they’re a good option if you’re avoiding meat but are used to eating it. If you’re a long-time vegetarian, they’re weird and unpleasant.

    All frozen Quorn is half price in fact…

    •  

      That means to people that think its starting at a BS RRP :)

      •  

        I agree. It is much cheaper where I am from which is the UK. But it is just the price here, which is similar to other alternative meat products.

    Who feeds these to their dog?

  •  

    serious question,
    are these good for a low carb diet?
    family member is dieting at the moment, doing really well
    (theyre not even vegetarians)
    theyve been avoiding the usual, bread, rice, pasta, potatos etc etc

      are these good for a low carb diet?

      Nutrition Facts label and Ingredients list on all packaged produce answers so many questions.

      I would think unprocessed meat (protein) would win over most plant-based meat substitutes in a low carb diet, don't know about these.

      •  

        The problem with instincts is that they’re likely wrong - Wikipedia: Mycoprotein is able to provide greater satiety than traditional protein sources such as chicken, while also being rich in protein and low in caloric content.

        •  

          Sorry, I was trying to make a distinction between Quorn (mycoprotein, which I know little about) and vegetable-based substitutes (like Not a Burger). Thanks for the mycoprotein info.

      For Keto diet its too high in carbs at 17.6g. If its just low carb then depends on the individuals target macros/diet and best to check with them first - it could swing either way.

    IMO Spinach and cheese by far the best option. I'm a vegetarian but even my wife who is not loves them. Other versions are so so.

    When I think what Quorn looks like growing in the vats, kombucha scoby comes to mind.
