Good spot. Wasn't paying attention - £2.63

With all the drug scandals at the Olympics, Mo Farah proved to us that all you need is a bit of these badass Quorn!

One has to wonder if he really eats the stuff...

TOO RIGHT!

If you can't get to Tesco then Morrisons are also doing an offer, get the 300g frozen for £1

To me, Quorn tastes like cardboard - had it once a couple of years back.. never again..

I don't know why people just don't order the real thing rather than fake alternatives.. Its heavily processed and not nutritious.

A growing concern is the potential effect of genetically-modified foods and their long-term health risks - I'd stay well clear of it..

COLD

I'll get my coat..

A total re-think:
holy moly

I do not eat this - I follow a vegan diet, but it doesn't taste anything like cardboard.
People do not order "the real thing" usually for ethical reasons like unnecessary torture of sentient animals.
GMO - only "some" people have concerns & these ones likely have no idea what GMO is or the alleged risks.
Most people have "opinions" that are ignorant & culturally informed. Culture is not your friend.

Impressive video. Thanks.

You don't eat this stuff, so how do you know it doesn't taste like cardboard? Maybe try it out just for the record and see what you think..

I think the funghi used are made using a process similar to GMO, and although being classified differentially, is all in all the same process...

This is the normal price in Heron food.

Horrible fungus.

​I'm vegetarian but havn't and won't eat this brand. Tried some when I wasn't a veggie and wasn't impressed it was un-eatable infact.
Well overrated brand. Needs more competition from other brands as this is all I can see 90% of the time.

I'm not a veggie but often buy meat substitutes, etc just out of interest to try it - and for convenience. Don't find this stuff too unpleasant to be honest. Good in a bolognese, etc.

Unlike KFC and Tesco pork pies, thank god no one is stupid enough to post deals for them!

Quorn mince is probably their best product, aside from the cocktail sausages. Personally find it tastier and cheaper than most alternatives, just a shame it isn't vegan as that puts a lot of people off.

1. Doesn't taste like cardboard. Millions eat it every year.
2. People eat it for many reasons. Healthier and more ethical, are just two reasons off the top of my head.
3. It's not "heavily processed", that is a made up word by uneducated food bloggers.
4. No, it is actually very nutritious. It has a complete amino acid profile.
5. There is no genetically modified anything in this...
6. How can you be so wrong about literally everything!? Do you know that Google exists?

Edit: Come to think of it, I remember you saying this same FUD on other Quorn deals before. Where I also pointed where you were wrong. But yet here you are again saying the same totally inaccurate things.. Troll or axe to grind seems to be the only plausible explanation for this wilful ignorance.

Having tried this, I think the Tesco veggie mince tastes better.

Best reply EVER!

9/10 people who say "It tastes like cardboard" say it because other people are. How do they know what cardboard tastes like? Because if they do eat cardboard, they haven't got the tastebuds to deal with this

Yawn.

I buy and eat this stuff because my wife is veggie and it's just easier if we eat the same stuff. Coming from a meat eater, the Quorn mince isn't actually that bad. The frozen sausages are the worst! but thier cocktail sausages actually taste better than real ones in my opinion. good price

It's almost certain that anyone who says "tastes like cardboard" has never actually tried it.
When presented with an option which pressure from society says you should be taking (healthier/ethical), but offers less personal indulgence, then people will try to find any way to attack that option so that they can feel justified in their selfish choice. It's purely out of insecurity and inability to own their decisions.

don't want to sound like a killjoy but there is an allergy warning on the packet and if you google quite a lot of people have said it affected them and they felt ill, something to do with the mycoprotein.

Indeed - as Terence McKenna used to say "culture is not your friend" - it is a known fact, that human psychology tends to be herd psychology and it is easier to "go with" than go against group-think, even if the reasons for being with the herd are irrational.

Few people revel in being defined as the bad guy and by default, these products make a lot of people feel this way and see it as an accusation against their ethics.

Pft - humans (_;)

If you Google most things you'll enter realms of confirmation bias.

Many products have allergy warnings - I cannot eat gluten without inflammation issues, therefore I have to check labels when I eat processed food, which is rare for me, but I find warnings regularly for hosts of substances.

Just being alive creates allergic reactions depending on what we are exposed to. Life is a high risk game.

Literally any organic compound can cause an allergic reaction. Particularly things with protein in. However Quorn has vastly less allergic reactions than soya, peanuts, or shellfish.

I recommend people simplify their diet and learn to live with basic foods like beans, lentils and chopped vegetables, mixed with brown rice for a meal. This is enough within itself. I accept you don't like this stuff, I do not eat it for the animal products they use, as I have ethical issues with this - it doesn't taste like cardboard though, it gets, well, tiresome hearing this same old canard being wheeled out. I appreciate opposition & a debate, but expect more refined humour from opponents.

I would wager, within a blind taste test, there would be a pronounced difference between Quorn & the cardboard box it is delivered in

Maybe the cardboard box alters the taste .. When I had it, it was without any additional ingredients added- just ok it's own, microwaved quorn pieces. I would never have it again unless I was paid a lot of money.

Having said that, for the price, I may give it another go with a view to making it into a stew or something ..

Fair enough. But do all your friends know what cardboard tastes like?

Also, I ate it neat.. Microwaved slightly raw pieces of frozen quorn, no added ingredients ..

It isn't really designed to be just eaten as it is - when I used it, this stuff was used as bulking and texture for cottage pies and the like.Obviously if you just start tucking into the plain Quorn mince without a sauce, it is pretty bland.

I see these products as transitions - for ex-meat eaters moving towards vegan style meals, that do not require this protein / fake meat - I wouldn't go back to eating this now, unless I was starving, as I prefer lentils.

Come on man - this is pure trolling nonsense now (_;)

I remember trying raw Quorn pieces back in the day and whilst being a little bland without a sauce, the taste wasn't there for hours... ten minutes tops. One glass of water later, or tea or whatever, gone.

I think you will try any tactic to discredit veggie products to defend your own corpse eating.

Heard it all before mate and frankly, it is quite pathetic.
