If you know anything about food you’ll know the popularity that plant-based meat is getting in recent years, with exposure now growing month by month.
The world’s first plant-based yakiniku meat launched in Singapore this year, a plant-based patisserie has opened in Hong Kong, and the menu at IKEA Japan has rolled out a new menu that is mostly vegan.
Now, the Canadian branch of the fast food chain A&W that introduced a Beyond Meat Burger to its menus in 2018 have taken a more scientific approach to convince sceptics that their new Beyond Meat nuggets can satisfy meat lovers.
快餐连锁店 A&W 的加拿大分公司于 2018 年引入了人造肉汉堡，他们采取了更科学的方法让怀疑者相信人造肉可以满足肉类爱好者的需求。
“This cannibalistic-like approach aims to convince meat-lovers that the new vegan nuggets taste just like the real thing,” the company said in its release. “There’s no better sample group than a blind plant that only closes its mouth on meaty prey.”
A video on Youtube was shot without any special effects and shows the “world’s most famous carnivorous plants” take the taste test. So, if they’re convinced, are you?
There’s plenty of vegan choices through the Sherpa’s app, so lose those carnivorous tendencies and have a try!
