If it's not your thing, no one is forcing you to buy it or eat it. But I guess some people always have to complain.
its all about being self-aware, which is completely lost today.

the same people who comment whenever they come across vegetarian/vegan topics (you know, the typical meat eater dude who just HAS to say something half-witted like "keep it up vegans! just leaves more meat for me!!" while scanning intensely at a photo of a vegan protest to try and point out anyone wearing a leather belt) have absolutely NO idea they just look really silly to normal, sane people.

no one is getting an a&w burger to be healthy. but people having the choice to eat a meat alternative is a nice thing.

the REAL argument is whether any of these meat alternatives are actually better for the environment or not. anything mass harvested like coconut and almond have all shown to be terrible for the environment.

Thanks!
Can we show it on our phone or do we need to print it?

Not saying it's a bad product, but the spin that it's healthier than the traditional alternative is not really true, and it's long term health impacts are still unknown.
Late to the party and was reading through and so happy someone mentioned this... It’s literally straight chemicals and concocted in a lab... how could it possibly be good? Processed to the extreme just like any other veggie sausage or patty found in the store. The list of “ingredients” takes a PHD and a few mins to read lol

These are tasty, just don't count on being full after 1. If you're hungry you'll want a second.

Btw Tim Hortons version was awful compared to this, but that's expected.

I tried one of these at A&W about a month ago... It was OK, but I found it INCREDIBLY salty. Did I get a bad one or are they always like this?

People are hating on Tims, but personally I thought it tasted way better.

They are catering mostly to non vegans, and besides real vegans make up maybe 2% of the population.

This is what I'd equate it to taste wise.
Think of the cheapest filler burgers you can imagine and to me that's what it reminds me of.
The difference is that there's 0% meat instead of 51% meat which makes it interesting.
BM vs fresh homemade patty
Really? BM wins vs a fresh patty?
Now I have questions.
BM vs other plant base burgers

No comment because I haven't tried any others.

I don't get this concept in vegetarian/vegan in general.
Embrace the vegetables you're cooking instead of screwing with it to make it remind you of what you're missing by becoming vegetarian/vegan.
So far (including this) there isn't a substitute that comes close to replacing the real thing.

Are people here too young to remember margarine?

If you're eating this as your main staple because of "the environment", don't. You'll just be a drain on our healthcare system in the next 10 years.

I had it and a mama burger, just to compare. Both were very good. I didn’t find it overly salty.

I'm a fan. It tastes good and is better for the environment.

The main reason they're "screwing with it" is because the planet can't sustain the meaty appetite of the world's population.

The one time I had it they put way too much mustard and didn't toast the bun, ymmv though. A&W is a burger place so more consistent.

no one cares whether you 'get it' or not. this isn't just for vegetarians/vegans. its for anyone who wants a fast food burger but maybe doesnt want to have meat all of the time.

you literally just said you haven't tried any other plant based burgers at all. chiming in just to assert a baseless opinion for no reason is weird and sad.

I had no idea people ate any kind of fast food as a healthy meal. I thought this was just a vegetarian option for people who want a garbage meal once in awhile that doesn't impact the planet as negatively.
