It’s one thing to decide not to eat meat – after all, some people mistakenly believe that meat is unhealthy. However, it’s another thing entirely to force yourself to eat weird and disgusting processed “imitation meat” slop in the name of being progressive.
Eating these fake meat products can only be some kind of masochistic display of virtue – they not only taste awful, but are typically far from “healthy.”
Beyond Meat might be the exception, in the sense that it’s not filled with soy and weird chemicals.
Water, Pea Protein*, Expeller-Pressed Canola Oil, Refined Coconut Oil, Rice Protein, Natural Flavors, Cocoa Butter, Mung Bean Protein, Methylcellulose, Potato Starch, Apple Extract, Pomegranate Extract, Salt, Potassium Chloride, Vinegar, Lemon Juice Concentrate, Sunflower Lecithin, Beet Juice Extract (for color).
However, could a “meat” patty made from that weird mix of ingredients possibly taste good?
Of course not.
Or at least, it certainly won’t taste like meat. So what’s the point?
Why is KFC even going along with this insanity? Are Black people clamoring for vegan fried chicken?
Does KFC believe they can pull in the hipster bugmen crowd by offering a vegan option?
Not unless they also offer the option to eat at KFC “ironically.”
Beyond Meat said on Wednesday it will supply plant-based “fried chicken” to several KFC stores in Tennessee and North Carolina, after a test conducted last year showed strong consumer demand.
Fast-food chains including McDonald’s, Burger King, and Dunkin Brands have raced to add imitation meat products to their menus as Americans cut down on animal protein consumption. While those companies have rolled out imitation pork or beef patties, Yum Brands Inc’s KFC is the first to launch plant-based “chicken.”
The product is 80 calories per piece and looks a bit like a fried chicken nugget, with a sinewy texture designed to feel like chicken. It will be available next month in dozens of stores in and around Nashville, Tennessee, and Charlotte, North Carolina, the companies said.
KFC said it would take what it learns from those markets to better understand how offering the imitation chicken will play out nationally.
All these fast food chains are adding fake meat options to their menus.
And this is happening just as the national media is telling us we need to stop eating meat, or else we’ll all get fried by the changing climate.
No more burgers for you, White man.
And while KFC is going with the relatively harmless Beyond Meat stuff, many other chains are offering the soy-laden alternatives, such as the “Impossible Burger.”
Creating a muscle-like, fibrous texture is very important when imitating chicken, because that’s what people have come to expect when they bite into a piece of meat, Beyond Meat Chief Executive Ethan Brown said in an interview.
Louisville, Kentucky-based KFC has over 23,000 stores in more than 140 countries, but traces its roots to a roadside restaurant and service station founder Colonel Harland Sanders ran in the 1940s.
A strong relationship with KFC could benefit Beyond Meat, which aims to work with the same fast-food chains globally and is expanding outside the United States. Beyond Meat’s products are already sold in several Asian countries, and the company is eyeing entry into China, where KFC is the No. 1 fast-food chain.
YUM Brands shares were up 1.5% on Wednesday. Beyond Meat’s stock rose as much as 3%, with gains dampened by Canadian coffee chain Tim Hortons saying late on Tuesday it had pulled Beyond Meat products from stores in Ontario and British Columbia.
Both companies said they expect strong demand for imitation chicken, given that last year’s one-day test in Atlanta sold out in less than five hours. Several plant-based meat makers have had capacity issues due to unexpectedly high demand. The category is expected to be worth $140 billion over the next decade.
Why would there be “strong demand” for fake meat that’s way more expensive than real meat?
And yes, in case you were wondering, “Beyond Meat” products are generally 50-100% more expensive than their meat counterparts. People are literally paying a premium for something that is inferior both nutritionally and in terms of taste.
I have a conspiracy theory. I think all this crap is just bait to get people used to eating fake meat by pushing it in every goy-feed outlet out there. Then, they’ll just swap out all our meat with estrogen-laden soy substitutes.
Right now, fake meat is more expensive, so it’s not feasible to just force the issue. But if they can scale up production to the point where the price is similar, then they can start shutting down real meat production and transform all of society into a soy-fueled dystopia.
Don’t forget to take your federally mandated dose of soy, goyim, or else we’ll send Christian Bale after you. And not the Batman one who doesn’t kill – the one who knows gun-fu.
Don’t laugh off this theory – it could happen. Theoretically.
