It being plant based doesn't bother me so long as it taste good. Although I haven't eating fast food in like 10 years.

Good luck on seeing it fail. We bought stock in Beyond when it went public and it hasn’t really dipped.

Over the last several years, vegan food products have had a steady rise. In 2018 and 2019 there was a 700% growth both years. Not sure what 2020 looked like, but that stuff isn’t going away.

I’m not a fan of the Beyond burger stuff because it tastes and smells like cat food. The sh*t will stink up your house for 2 days. They’re sausages are pretty bangin’ though, at leas the hot Italian ones. The Impossible burger is pretty damn good though.

I’d imagine if meat-alternatives weren’t working out in the fast food industry, you’d stop seeing them being added to menus. Alas, that’s certainly not what’s happening. Almost every chain joint has added a meat-alternative to their menu in the last several years.

While I’m plant-base/whole food, I’ll eat the processed sh*t once a week as my “cheat” meal. I’m not counting calories or anything like that, I just realized a few years ago that my body works a hell of a lot better when I stick with whole foods instead of the processed junk.

The last time I ate at a 5 guys restaurant,you could
wring the watery grease from my sandwich like a
sponge.I stopped going there after that,I was upset
about my soggy sandwich.

I was highly disappointed with '5 Guys', I felt it was a misleading name for their food.

As someone who refuses to go to fast food places, it honestly doesn't sound worse than the meat paste they try to pass off as a burger.

With being new and plant-based they will jack up the price.

One thing good about COVID quarantine is I used to like an occasional Big Mac but last time I had one and it was gross.


$$$$ McDonalds isn’t cheap anymore. I bought an Angus burger about a year ago and it was $7. A plant burger would likely be even more 🙁

Side not to your side note:
I'm not against GMO foods. They get blamed for things that aren't even related to GMOs or have other explanations.

Like most things technical these days, GMOs are surrounded by ginned up controversy.

I just think Impossible's Burger is less tasty than Beyond Meat's offering. I will say though that both are equally expensive and will not be a regular staple in our home until the price comes down.

Can we still super size those gender neutral fries? or is that racist now?
I can't keep up.


Just don't call them "french" fries, and you might be ok.

That doesn't sound very good


Sometimes, it's who's in the kitchen, but I guess you can not have too high expectations anymore.
