Shepherd's Pie doesn't contain any real shepherds.

steak flavour crisps don't contain any steak either but are called this due to the flavour.

Quorn, onion and gravy bake doesn't really look right on the sign! Vegan steak bake is more descriptive than Quorn steak too as not all Quorn is vegan (some contains egg).

You cannot apply logic to these situations.
Why can't you get a real steak bake that tastes like a veggie bake?

You can. Just leave it out for a few days before eating

So enjoying the taste or texture of something makes you an hypocrite because you like cruelty-free versions of it? What a stupid comment.

Perhaps those that have embraced a plant-based/non-animal derivative lifestyle (either through choice or necessity) can cope with products that do not resemble the meat-based equivalents.

It is those that are undecided, or remain firm in their need to eat meat regularly, that need some motivation & require products to look like something they are familiar with, or that follows a convention that they will recognise.

Just walked past a Subway selling meat free meatballs.

So they're not meatballs then..
How much oestrogen has it got in it?

Just stating facts. Embracing the vegan lifestyle whole heartedly because of your beliefs or whatever, is one thing. Enjoying the taste or texture of something that you are against in the first place, while living that lifestyle is yeah, hypocritical and ironic. Like celebrities and SJW do-gooders telling people how to think and what to do, but dont practice what they preach.

Hypocrital how? Most people embrace being vegan or vegetarian due to the fact that eating meat/dairy causes suffering and is bad for the environment. It's not a statement against the taste or texture of meat/dairy!

Vegans use many products daily whose materials are sourced from animals. Not eating meat changes nothing.

Such as ?

No, not which products, which vegans?


The ones that use any of those products.

Vegans usually check if the product is vegan i.e. no animals were used in the product nor the process of making the product.

Came here to see if this comment was going around again (just as it did with the vegan sausage roll last year). Unsurprisingly, here it is again. Yes, 'vegan bake' is probably a more accurate name but it's just marketing. Get over it, nobody is trying to take real steak bakes away from you.

I think they are vile, so would be quite happy if they did.
I totally get the vegan sausage rolls, a sausage roll doesn't need to contain meat. Steak is meat. Why would you even want it mentioned in a vegan product?

#Ginuary is a sub-class of #Veganuary as gin goes not contain any animal-derived substances (like a vast majority of spirits).
I have just eaten one of these, & can recommend it...
