That doesn't even make any sense in this case. Literally a pound of mince and salt and pepper on it. I think these packet burgers are geared towards people too squeamish about handling meat, and people who don't check the ingredients thinking these burgers are something different to a pound of meat, salt & pepper.
I suspect the posher you are the more likely you are to roll your own burgers! As with most foods doing from scratch better but same can be said about more than half the food sold in a supermarket. Doesn’t make it a bad deal.
Hopefully it’s a loss leader for the supermarket and the farmer is still getting a fair price
The issue is that you can buy 100% beef mince at cheaper cost without all the added crap. Or are you too posh to roll your own burgers and sprinkle with pepper?
Hopefully they do manage to make more than one burger out of each cow.

Absolutely agree. I'd always get meat stick in my teeth are a Burger King burger. And they were filling. I say it past tense, because my nearest Burger King is at a service station that I can only access by driving up and down the motorway for no good reason. And that my kids prefer McD's. McD's milkshakes are the best. But the burgers, for me, aren't a patch on BK. I should imagine you could produce a vegan patty to fool a McD dinner much easier too.
All aboard the band wagon.
Yes it is (y)
It's flame grilled not fried, but you're right, that's why it's not advertised as Vegan
Yes, Vegan (y)

These are excellent quality and taste amazing though, each to their own.
Your forgot "ignorant". Mr bwmxyz called me "ignorant" because I eat meat. He really hurt my feelings! ;(
"How can you tell if somebody is Vegan?" "Oh don't worry, they will soon tell you!!!" Sounds like a joke, but it is true. I believe in choice. Vegans right now will say the same. There will come a point when they will campaign for a ban on meat products for all. They will want to make this choice for you. The negative words have already started. Unevolved...Selfish...cruel...murderers...fatties. (and many more) I have hunted, prepared and ate animals and fish. I understand the ethics more than most. The one thing i cannot stand is unnecessary cruelty to animals. I don't like the idea of people keeping birds in cages for example. But i don't deem it cruel. Same goes for fish tanks and zoo's. I'm talking directly and intentionally harming animals. Neglect to animals is a really serious problem for example. I try to eat a balanced diet. I minimise processed food and cook most of it myself.This includes meat, fish and vegetables. Right now, i don't think the vegan meat alternatives will give me a healthier, tastier diet. But i do believe that at some point they will. I would have no problem if the alternatives taste and feel the same. (and without having to take supplements that the body needs) I have no agenda to want to eat meat from animals. But right now, nature provides the best food, it's as simple as that.
Interesting username. I did some research and yescit is a GMO which means ot os not a natural product. eat at your own risk
Hahahhaha Mate, you're making yourself look stupid. I have not once preached against people who eat meat or people who want to eat this burger. Self centered? Well of course it is, because it my opinion about this burger. Just put the phone or keyboard away and stop making yourself look stupid. You don't know what you're talking about and just piled into the thread without reading a single thing first. Honestly I've never come across a more thick person on this forum in nearly 10 years. Well done, you've finally excelled at something in life.
Also if can get hold of them get some soy chunks, I tree of life (I think it’s called) soak them in boiling hot water in a bowl for 10-15 mins then drain squeeze the water out of them. Season with salt and pepper, fry until turning golden and use is curry’s, etc.or straight from squeezing the water out put them on top of a pizza, I marinade mine in bbq sauce after boiling and then put on pizza then whack it in over for 15-20mins depending on the pizza. I like the ones from Morrison’s pizza counter. Cheap too. Less the £2 for a bag that would make 6 meals.
Asda plant based mince is ok, everything else apart from the burgers is a bit on the bland side. My kids love the Richmond burgers and I don’t mind them myself but I like to get a good amount for my money the Richmond burgers are just a little too small for my liking, nice in flavour just on the small side. Oumph stuff can be expensive but is worth when on offer. Tried the super expensive beyond burgers and they were just ‘alright’, definitely not worth the money in my opinion. I tend to use a lot of meatballs and minces lately as I like making lasagne, Bolognese and spaghetti and meatballs. Richmond, Birdseye and Aldi meatballs are all nice and in that order of niceness. Best mince for me is Morrison’s own and I’m fairly sure I’ve tried them all.
Each to his own. I love the Meatless Farm burgers but none of their other stuff. I was in Asda and considered trying their own brand plant-based but L McA was on a dirt cheap offer and I only had a small freezer bag. Is any of their other stuff worth trying? Tesco have some stuff that looks tempting in their larger stores, but of course that's no guarantee of anything.
Just tried meatless farm burgers today, not a fan. I don’t like meatless farm as a brand I think all it’s products taste weird. Not tried the cauldron sausages yet. My other faves are naked glory sausages and tikka pieces and quorn ultimate burgers as well as Asda’s chilled plant based burgers.
The name seems perfectly logical in the short or long term to me. They are explicitly designed to taste like meat, as opposed to being veggie balls of a different flavour, so at least for my purposes calling them meat-free is extremely helpful. Were they simply labelled as veggie or vegan balls, or some other description that doesn't mention the fact they are designed to taste like meat, I doubt I'd have tried them.
There aren't particularly unbalanced subsidies between livestock and arable, at least not for meat production. Dairy gets a fair whack, but most meat production doesn't get a huge amount of subsidy relative to revenue. As opposed to arable farmers who lose money as often as they make it if not for subsidy payments. They're also at pretty significant volume already, beyond is a pretty big multinational company.
cost will go down once the quantity goes higher. Also the animal meat are heavily subsidised. It would be great for govt to subsidise plant-based producers and tax the meat producers. But unfortunately its the wrong way around.
What utter rubbish.
Where did you get that information about their target market? The vegans you've experienced definitely don't represent the majority. Many vegans including myself are very much in the meat alternative market.

Unlike the Lidl app that started off giving you money off your next shop, to then giving you random vouchers for things you never buy, to now a stupid spinning wheel that you hardly ever win on and when you do 'win' you get a random vouchers for something you'll never buy or have purchased ever before. Went from good to worse, to then even worse :p
BK's app is a lot better today then it was a year or two ago. I just don't understand why BK has went for the voucher approach and not a more personalised app experience. Tesco Clubcard totally nailed it, don't offer your customers stuff there not interested in, focus on what they do like and tailer offers. Just my two cents...
Ordered 3 of the single burgers, the whopper and chicken royal meal, and extra fries, it came to just over £10. Having the app definitely a cheaper way to enjoy Bk.
You're lucky, the staff at both of your local Burger King stores don't bother limiting offers redeemed in-store to one per account and per customer but all three of my local do
The 2 local ones where I live never question at all? McDonald's do that where I live but never had that with Burger King, so thought it was McDonald's just being tight
I’m sorry I can’t really understand the point you are making, your sentences have gone over my head a bit! If you go into a somewhere and want to buy an item and it costs X, but an App lets you buy the same item for 20-30% less (and there is nowhere else nearby to buy the item that you need there and then - I.e a meal to feed you on a long journey) then surely you are saving money?
When you say, this has saved you money in the past, motorway services are 20% higher, do you mean you didn't spend as much money rather than saved! Saving is something you need not desire, depends how desperate you are!! Anyway, if you think you have saved, then good for you and burgersuperking rip-off.
This was 2 for £7.99 on the app last year and then they put the price up whilst other well known fast food giants reduced prices by taking off VAT during covid, so up yours Burger King you filthyrats
The offeralso includes the vegan/plant based versions
Yes, that’s exactly what I thought, so when I saw the sticker on the till advertising the App I asked if Icould use the App deals and they said yes (this was the A34 /M4 Moto ‘Chieveley’ services).
It's still there, but you have to select the "I have a voucher" option first, then you get a choice to scan a voucher or enter manually.
New offer every Monday but not the same offer every week
Is this deal on every Monday
I tried this last night and it didn't work (annoyed) 🙈 (annoyed) LOL!
I just noticed this myself earlier. I actually never wrote random codes as I figured it was only a few mins to take the survey. I went to take the survey earlier on the mcfoodforthought website and for 3 different receipts it told me "code has expired". It then locked me out of the website. One of the receipts was from only a week ago, so very odd it was expired. I then switched on my VPN and tried again and finally got through the survey only to find a QR code at the end that they say has to be printed out. Or you can have it emailed to you - I assume they will block if you use the same email address too often? I guess that's the end of that deal for me. Been using it for years.
Bill Gates has some shares in the company. Many of which were sold in 2019 apparently. Doubt he'll be getting much back from those shares as any profit Beyond makes is likely to go back into the production and making the products more available in other countries.
Coffee first, then let the water sit for 1 minute after boiling then oat milk😜
There's also some consensus that if you pour the milk first before the coffee / tea or vice versa it wont cause issues. I can't remember which way it was though as I haven't drunk tea in years and can't stand coffee.
Many vegan faux meats are made by entirely vegan companies. Beyond meat is a vegan company. It's a matter of production costs, and popularity. And with beyond it's imported to the UK so that drives up price. https://vegnews.com/2019/7/plant-based-meat-is-about-to-get-cheaper-than-animal-flesh-report-says covers some stuff about production of plant meats including beyond. You need to also remember why animal meat is so cheap. Factory farming which is basically mass production so more pound per buck, less money spent on welfare etc. And the government subsidises animal agriculture. If you buy a true "free range" burger though the prices are similar.
Always happy to throw a few quid Bill Gates' way.. bless his humanity-loving heart. He could do with some of my money, he's been a bit down on his luck this last year...
Is it just me or are they closed today? Just the app is only picking up one or two locations out of a whole list
It's a bit silly isn't it? I'll not be buying one and, I'm sure, many others will avoid this burger based on this (fierce) At least we've got the Burger King thing to try though!
Getting one of these today (y)
On a general note: Why are most veggie/vegan options bland? Especially chilli, curry or pasta based meals. It would be so easy to have some hotter, spicier alternatives to the boring stuff I usually see on the menu. This goes for ready meals also.
Had the plant based Whopper over a year ago whilst on holiday in New Zealand. Thought they were really good. Haven't tried the vegan Royale but we usually order a bean burger and just ask for no mayo or cheese then add sweet chilli sauce and you've got yourself a tasty vegan burger. Btw: Domino's NZ do amazing vegan mince pizzas with vegan burger sauce and a couple of other vegan options. Wish the UK would catch up!
My local never have these, they did a while ago, but not seen them in ages
These are already very tasty. To spice them up more I sprinkle some Tex's hot SFC seasoning/flour and they come out great. Also don't over cook, as the breadcrumbs won't appreciate it!. Everyone I've known whose had these, loves them. Such a no brainer!. I wish they made a thicker version.
Yeah, these are good. I am not a vegetarian or anything, but why not have these when they are delicious and healthier than some other things I could eat...
These are fab - thanks (y)
The Southern fried burgers are great, they were £1 for 8 at the Dewsbury shop too. That was at least a fortnight ago. But there was no stock not surprising really as they are good value when 3 packs for a fiver.
