I would try it, although the extra calories, fat and sodium don't entice me. I'm a big fan of real veggie/vegan burgers, they're delicious.

Neither. Can't beat REAL food - in season, home-cooked with LOVE.

After reading the article I would say, personally I wouldn't mind if my burger was very meat like, although like some of the people quoted in the article I don't really want my food to too closely resemble meat. However delicious meat substitutes that are close to the real thing are really important for a lot of people who struggle to change to a diet with less/no meat but would otherwise like to. Cutting out meat when you've eaten meat all your life because society has said that's what we need and based all it's food on, is REALLY hard and I don't judge anyone who finds it hard. So I would love more options for people trying their best.

No way ... especially since my most common fast food order is Pad Thai.

I buy vegan burgers because they taste good, not because the burger patty looks or tastes like meat.

Absolutely I’d give up meat tomorrow if a sustainable equally tasty alternative was found that was also nutritionally equal (eg carb free).
Bring it on! I think very few people would actually disagree.

I'm not fussed as to the source. As the ad used to say""if it tastes good I'm into it".
I've eaten vegan food that was shit. I've eaten vegan food that was delicious.
So, there's my two cents.

Every article I read on this subject talks about how the"meat like" alternative is not necessarily healthy. HELLO! IT'S JUNK FOOD! Just like the cruelty laden burgers that these places sell, they are not meant to be eaten every day. I've been vegan for years. I became vegan as a stand against animal cruelty and the damage animal agriculture does to the planet. Being vegan can be as healthy or unhealthy as you like. Plain and simple.

I had an impossible burger in NYC, thought it was fantastic (and so would have my kids if they hadn’t seen the meat free sign!). Eye opening to learn how inefficient meat production is, but why are soy based products not significantly cheaper ????

This might be a strange question but if everyone becomes a vegan why would we have some animals?

I mean if it was actually good for the environment, and sourced without slavery or causing poor people around the world to starve, I'd eat it. But it's not, so I'm gonna keep eating meat (that I try my hardest to make sure is as kind as possible to the animals, because it's their life that matters to them, not their death) until White Vegans realise their racism in consuming food that's STILL being unethically sourced.
