[No Frills] *SUPER HOT* - Beyond Meat Beef/Ground only $2 @ No Frills After PM, Points, and Coupon!!!

FireFireFire Beyond Meat “beef” a.k.a ground only $2 (after coupon and points) TacoTacoTaco

Guys!!! SUPER HOT deal this week! You can get this for only $2 by doing the following:

1) Price match the current Sobeys flyer price of $5 for the Beyond Meat “beef” at No Frills

2) No Frills currently is offering 1,000 PC Optimum points when buying Beyond Meat burgers or ground (this is equivalent to $1 back in points, and is of course for those who collect PC points which is a free program to join)

3) Use the $2 off printable coupon that can be found using the link below. Remember: you can use TWO coupons per shopping trip as per the fine print on the coupon (one per each package of course):

🏃🏼‍♀️ Both these flyers deals (price at Sobeys and points offer at No Frills) as well as the coupon are good until Wednesday, September 30!

This stuff is so popular in BC, it's almost always sold out. I'm honestly considering visiting the east coast to buy up BM products with the wicked sales you get, and reselling them here. A single package goes for around 10-15 on Vancouver island; but you can rarely get it.
For some reason the Maple Leaf Meats version isn't nearly as popular.
But yeah, this isn't going anywhere. If anything, I could see bigger competitors pricing Beyond Meat out of the market with their scale; but the product itself is our new reality. It will only get more difficult to justify eating meat when you have to look your grandkids in the eyes and explain the reality of climate change.

Curious on how this plays out.
Have not done a price match at No Frills for years.
Wonder if they would give a hard time with the match if you are buying burgers, as the Sobeys flyer only specifies the 340g grind.
If anyone tries, let me know how it played out.

Good idea but it's not as good of a deal, because you can only use 2 coupons per purchase. So one would have to buy 5 packages (2 at $3 each after using the 2 coupons for a pre-total of $6 after coupons, then another 3 packages at $5 each, which would bring you to a total of $21... then you get the $5 back in points, meaning you actually paid $16 for 5 packages, which effectively equals $3.20 per package).

I price match at my No Frills all the time with no problems. I doubt they would price match the burgers if it doesn't show them or state it anywhere in the flyer... but you can try lol good luck

The other hiccup for me is there are no Sobeys anywhere near my No Frills (Islington-Dixon in Etobicoke), so they likely will not match. Would have to find the closest geographic area where they match.

Per purchase always meant per item instead of per transaction.

You can only use 1 coupon per purchase (item).

Just as a forward, I've eaten pretty much every type of vegetable based fake meat. I try to eat half of my "meat" from these sources.

It's interesting. If you know how to cook it properly, it's nearly identical to the mouth feel of real meat. If cooked properly, it's not anymore healthy than real meat, but doesn't come from animal sources.
Fantastic as ground beef substitute for tacos, or ragu sauce; not so good when cooked on it's own in burgers.

Incredible Meat is better, in my opinion, but not as accessible in Canada.

Depends on what you are looking for... These are designed to taste like meat. If you're looking for a meat substitute I would say go ahead and try it! It's super meaty and would probably satisfy you carnivorous tooth.

If you are already a vegetarian then keep in mind this is very meaty... too meaty and realistic. This is the same reason my wife doesn't like it so much. After +10 years she simply doesn't like that taste anymore. It is also odd putting for her to see something resembling meat.

I'm a "semi vegetarian" if that's a thing. For convenience and health's sake we are mostly vegetarian at home. Most of the time I do not miss meat... Especially minced meat. But if I feel like eating meat I will go for meat, not fake meat. Beyond meat is close to meat but I don't like any fake meats, I just eat alot less of the real stuff which allows me to buy ethically (as much as I know).

The ground and burgers have the exact same ingredients, so buy the ground and get 113g more

Sure, it's Frankefood. It was created in a lab. It doesn't taste anything like real meat (not sure what people who insist it's a good substitute eat when they eat real meat). It doesn't provide any nutritional advantage over real meat. And despite this thread, it typically costs at least as much as real meat.

I eat beyond meat a lot, haven't eaten anything real in 10+ years. The KFC fake chicken is my least favourite. Burgers are excellent, sausage is great!

My meat eating friends says the A&W beyond meat burger tastes exactly how he thinks a person who forgets what meat tastes like would think meat tastes like......he did also approve of the taste though

Agreed, I tried Impossible and Beyond burgers quite early into their launch and both impressed me. I still enjoy them now, but the Beyond sausages are on a whole new level at replicating the real thing.

KFC uses Lightlife, which is basically a knockoff version of Beyond. I don't think they've been doing all that well in the retail space and the KFC partnership is probably one of their biggest recent wins. It tastes alright to me with the KFC seasoning, but nothing to rave about. They're owned by Maple Leaf Foods and recently tried a pathetic marketing campaign to try and win customers from their competitors by claiming they use clean ingredients. It used to be a pass from me for the not so great taste, but now it's because of their stupid marketing aimed at dumb people.

It is definitely more healthy than real meat.

Nutritional advantage: no cholesterol, less fat, more protein, more fiber.

In terms of what?
  • For ethical and environmental benefits it's an easy win.
  • For health, it's comparable to meat. It's formulated to mimic the real deal and has a similar macro/micro-nutrient profile. The saturated fats you might want to avoid in real meat are mostly present here too.
  • In terms of cost, it has been steadily been going down to compete with real meat but isn't there yet. The company goal is to become cheaper than real meat.
  • In terms of taste, it's quite good. Bit of a funky smell when cooking and your burps might taste like the burger for a few hours.
If you're vegan or vegetarian it's an amazing product. It's certainly worth being open minded and trying it even if not. The Beyond sausages in particular are really good.

You're best off ignoring opinions that include comments about "GMOs", "frankenfoods" and "it's made in a lab" as they come from people who haven't the faintest clue when it comes to nutrition or science and likely consult blogs from the Food Babe to guide their lifestyle decisions. You can view the ingredients for yourself and there's really nothing innocuous in there. Pea/rice protein, canola/coconut oil, methylcellulose (very terrifying for people who don't know how to read), salt, beet juice, and some vitamins. Aside from freaking out about nothing and worrying about getting microchipped by Bill Gates vaccines, the people having a fit over this are most likely consuming much worse things in their everyday lives without having a clue.
