I assume these are the ones Keith is talking about. The chili and lime ones in particular are fantastic.

And if you're into the texture of wheat crunchies instead of real crisps they are not too dissimilar.

The mango & mint lentil chips are the absolute tits, haven't tried the chilli & lime version. Will have to hunt them down.

I'd say if you're dedicated to a vegan diet then it's a bit odd to be buying food in Burger King or KFC in the first place, but then I concede that you might be there with mates.

You could say the same about practically anywhere that sells food, are "dedicated" vegans supposed to stop shopping at Tesco too because of all the meat and animal products they sell where a good amount of the animals are treated just as bad if not worse. Vegans still don't have the luxury to pick and choose where to shop.

Well, the white middle class ones where I live do!

That's the difference between being able to "kick off" outside the slaughter house, or having to work inside the fucking place on a zero-hours contract to keep the rent paid!

That’s one of the good things about fast food places and supermarkets doing a few vegan things, accessibility. As I say, where I live is pretty affluent and has good transport links, but matey who works at the Amazon factory a few miles down the road isn’t going to wait for a bus after their shift to head to the Chorlton vegan paradise for the weekly shop. I always try to never take it for granted that I have a lot of choice for ingredients where I live, there is even an all vegan fast food place.

Thing is I think this is something we generally all recognise as being understandable anyway. Plenty of Muslim and Jewish people work in places that sell pork or seafood or alcohol, same with Hindus working in places that sell beef, or Sikhs working in places that sell halal food, or decent people working in places that sell The Sun.

The Rebel Whopper has egg in the mayo, so it isn’t even plant based, because eggs aren’t a plant. It is a plant based patty prepared and served like a beef patty. Weird thing to do when everyone is trying to do it properly.

They did the same in the states with it as well

Maybe they're just road-testing the patty recipe, seeing if it goes down well, before going full vegan with it? That's the only explanation I can think of.

Or it's aimed at flexitarians, as previously posited. Byron do a flex burger that's half meat and half mushroom; it's nice.

Sorry, I should've been clearer - that's what I was aiming at, that they were targeting flexitarians as a means of road-testing the patty. I would've thought it wouldn't be something to aim purely at them permanently; they can't be that large a market, surely?

I don't understand the point of a 50% Meat and 50% Plant burger. The whole concept is stupid. If you want to be a flexiterian, just eat a vegan burger.Most immitation burgers now are really good at mimicking actual meat. It's one of the things which they get right nearly everytime.

I was just pointing out that there was more to it than using the same grill. They called something plant based and then put egg in it, Why anyone would aim at “flexitarians” is mind boggling, I don’t even understand why there is a word for someone who just eats slightly less animal products
