I normally go for Quorn Mince but this was a too good a bargain to pass up. Realeat has been around for a while, it is has been taken over by the Linda McCartney brand. This is usually £2+ a bag and great in Lasagna, Chilli etc.

Before anyone votes this cold and starts calling it cat litter please remember the hotukdeals rules that you should move on if you are not interested in the deal, please don't troll. Only vote cold because the deal is bad rather than you simply not liking the product or because you are opposed to vegetarianism. Fair enough? Thanks!

Why do vegetarians want their food to look like meat?

I guess so kids feel there eating the same thing? What else are they meant to make it look like. It allows veggies to make veggie version of famous meat courses, in this case maybe a bolognese?
Its not so much looking the same - its more a veggie version. i.e. a veggie sausage role.. doesn't mean they're trying to make it look like meat, they're just make a veggie version so you don't feel left out.

they don't particularly. The manufacturers do it to encourage non vegetarians to try the stuff.

You miss the point, it isn't that (most) vegetarians don't like meat they just don't like where it comes from. Personally I would be happy to tuck into a steak if it didn't come from a cow! They are not anti tasty food, they are anti animal killing.

Getting a few cold votes - how is a 75% discount a bad deal? If you have never tried it, never going to try it and don't like veges then please move on and don't vote.

This is definitely the best vegemince imo. I also love the realeat roast but it's very hard to get a hold of.

Why is the question asked every single time a veggie deal is posted. I never get why people go into veggie posts just to ask this.

Do cows actually look like ham burgers? What part of a sheep/pig/cow looks like mince? Because I aint seen that one at the zoo/farm.

It's a generic food shape which manufacturers use to make consuming such things as cow, chicken, lamb, soy protein etc easy. You know, because it's much easier to make spag bol out of mince that it is to put a whole entire cow in the pan. Same with burgers, as much as I'm sure an entire chicken would fit between a bun....

Personally I think this stuff is awful, not sure why, just never liked any of the LM stuff. Voted hot though, since it's 75% off.

I know, I mean, you never seen butchers trying to make beef look like carrots, do you?

Good deal though, and this stuff is pretty tasty.

Good deal, but i much prefer quorn mince. This stuff is rather chewy!

It's nothing to do with veggies wanting their food to look like meat that's the manufacturers doing that and why not, why do they put orange colouring in orange squash to make it look appealing and get people to buy it of course!

Most veggie alternatives like this and quorn are much better for you almost fat free, high in protein perfect for those on a low fat diet for health grounds veggie aside.

Back to the deal where can you buy 454g of beef mince for this price? Hot from me

Oh and i'm not veggie either ;)

LMFAO I only clicked this link because at first glance I misread it

I could have sworn it said Vegemice
#24
good deal, although i'm surprised why veggies don't tuck into soya mince more. a little more ethical than quortn etc as no eggs. full of protien and iron and low in fat.
#25
Very nice thanks 8)
#26
mmmmm good for us veggie folk :)
#27
Great deal!
If you prefer Quorn Mince, it's currently (83p) at Sainsburys... I posted this a week ago but nobody seemed to notice :(

Please veggy bashers, get some new material. Same old comments time after time.
Some people don't eat meat, get over it,move on with your life. Go roast a dead dog or something and satisfy those cravings...
Good deal by the way.

The Realeat stuff was actually rather good, IMHO. (Given a decent sauce, most people would never guess it was veggie -- however that is not always a recommendation to a veggie!)

If it has only been re-branded (rather than re-formulated), then this is a definite bargain.

Great deal,if it's a good tasting product.
I will be stocking up once I try my first meal and decide if it's a good buy or a good-bye!
Did I miss the reply or wasn't there one about what is it made of?
Heat and thanx if you give a sensible reply to the question!

Huh, I missed the law that said vegetarians must eat the Linda McCartney range of food. I had better rush out and buy it before the police notice.

Agreed, but who eats mince like that? I can't say I've ever seen completely plain mince served as a meal...

Can't speak for this mince, but in a bolognaise, burgers etc. Quorn mince doesn't look hugely different to real mince. Although, the mince is one of my least favourite of their products.

wow! it's a new kind of thread that has arisen this afternoon.....
I was a veggie for years, and I found that the fat content alone should be enough for people to stop eating mince and convert to this alternative. Sure, if you want to eat meat that's ok, but most of the mince that makes its' way into our tinned chillies and other things is so far removed from real meat it might as well be veggie-mince anyway.
On the subject of Jesus, I don't think he would have eaten it, probably because in first century Palestine it wasn't a big part of the kosher Jewish diet.
