I just had one. No coupon necessary. It was surprisingly tasty for rabbit food. I think the sauce and other toppings was the reason. As for the patty, it was ok. I tasted a bit of soya beans in the patty, I'm guessing that's the main ingredient. I still prefer real beef patty. Overall Wendy's $3 cheese burger is a better value

Are you ok with the papa burger which has 910 mg of salt, 13 grams of saturated fat and 95 mg of cholesterol, last two being a lot less in the beyond meat. Saturated fat, cholesterol and salt are related when it comes to high BP.

Hope you don't eat burgers then. The Teen burger has 910mg of sodium.. It also has 3x less fiber and >2x more fat.

But I guess you didn't look at anything comparable otherwise you would know the toppings/bread is what's driving the sodium...

Like I said, it's still junk food. You want healthy serving of veggies, eat a salad without dressing.

Not sure if beyond meat is new to you but it's a burger alternative not a salad alternative..

Quite the palate you got there as it contains no soy.

I know what it is, but some people keep thinking it's low calorie or healthy for a reason.

... Sodium is the cheapest way to make something taste better than it actually is.
I hope you are wrong and that it's actually sodium chloride. Imagine those minimum wage burger flippers accidentally knocking the sodium container into a sink full of H2O!!

I tried one a few months ago, very salty tasting and a strange aftertaste. I once made chickpea burgers which were quite good. Why try to completely imitate meat when it involves processing all the nutrition out of the ingredients?

Few if anyone has mentioned that in this and previous threads. The meat heads keep bringing it up though..

Personally not only do I really enjoy Beyond Meat (home patties BBQ) but I can still enjoy other forms of red meat without blowing my cap.
Ie. It helps me maintain a balance diet in the summer.

... No thanks! I’ll stay with my 100% grass fed beef burgers that are made with one ingredient, ....
Lucky you, to get ground beef from a local farmer. The beef the rest of us get all comes from feedlots where corn is what the cattle eat. I think it was in the 60's or 70's when you could no longer get grass-fed beef. The taste was much better back then.

In the west most cattle is grass/hay fed and some grain. I find a huge difference in taste here vs. the USA. I thought this was all of Canada but did some googling and found that in Ontario a lot are corn fed.

Your 100% grass fed bovine's ancestors have already been genetically altered by these same scientists over the last 100 years.
