A&W mayo is made with eggs.

Chubby Mayo
canola oil, water, liquid whole egg and yolk, vinegar, salt, sugar, spice, concentrated lemon juice, calcium disodium EDTA.
Oh, the horror.

Honestly then, wtf is the point of even offering this thing? It's not vegan, vegetarian, kosher or halal, It's not cheaper than other options, and according to this review, its "just right".
and "It’s not interchangeable with the Mama Burger I later eat for comparison", so is the mass market looking for an almost as good pseudo burger for an upcharge?

I must be missing something here, because I always assumed the point of offering a product like this was to appeal to people with specific dietary or religious convictions.
It's to appeal to people who want to reduce their meat intake, or just their red meat intake.

I had a vegetarian come to one of our kids bday parties, actually she claims shes a vegan. not sure what the difference is but she brought these veggie or vegan pattys so i was bbqing all kinds of meat, ribs, chicken, etc, and threw them on the grill and cooked them up, yeah im sure a bit of the beef, chicken and pork grease got onto those vegan pattys, and i used the same utensils, and i put non vegan mayo and ketchup, non vegan cheeze and other condoments on her burger, she did not seem to care, but she claims shes a hard core vegan, sometimes i feel some of them just trying to be difficult like that on purpose some dont care
A lot of vegetarians aren't super strict about how their food is cooked, only that they're not intentionally choosing to eat animals in a way that shows demand for meat. As long as what they eat doesn't lead to an animal getting killed somewhere they're happy.

I just had one of these burgers for lunch and I liked it. It definitely tastes a lot more like beef than anything offered by McDonald's.
Could HAVE, not could OF. What does 'could of' even mean?

I'm not a vegetarian and I liked it quite a bit. It wasn't dry like every almost every other veggie burger and it had some chew to it (whereas a lot of veggie burgers just disappear in the toppings & bread). I'd get it again

Tried one today. It was better than the cardboard textured veggie burger, but nowhere close to as satisfying as a true meat burger. After finishing it, I was left feeling like I hadn't had the main course yet.

For the price of a combo (around $11 after tax), it's way overpriced for what you get.

Just my 2 cents.

Have you tried the Harvey's veggie burger? If so how do they compare?
Haven't tried the Harvey's one yet, but I plan to sometime.

A friend in Brampton got a coupon for 50% off the beyond meat burger at A&W until December 31 2018. Anyone else received one?

I mentioned that I got 50% off a few posts back, but I didn't need the coupon. Maybe because the attendant already auto-applied the coupon for me?

My buddy hooked me up with a stack of A&W 50% coupons. See lots of veggie burgers in my immediate future.
Rex, eat the salad.

They have 1/2 price coupons on their website. You have to sign up to access though. I tried one today. Forgot that they put mayo on them or I would have asked them not to. I don't have an issue with them cooking it on the same grill. By far the best veggie burger I've tried although a bit salty for my taste.
Cheap junk wastes resources and fills up landfills.
