Why Woot? WHY???
Can I bread my pork chops with this?
just weird. if you’re vegan, why would you want this? If you’re a normal person, why would you want this? if you’re an Alien, why would you want this?
Tell me you watch porn without telling me you watch porn.
Send me this with $10 and I’ll write you a review.
Maybe to help those with diagnosed dietary issues feel more “normal” in a society which is confrontational against anything deemed out of the ordinary?
Vegan by choice alone, yah different situation and less sympathy from me.
Whole Foods sells an Australian product (Deliciou) which I believe is very similar to this. Deliciou actually is delicious and is sold in 4.94 oz boxes costing $7. This porkless mix actually has less salt than the WF product. The name “porkless” is a marketing decision. I don’t care that it’s name is associated w/ animal flesh. What’s important to me are the ingredients and nutritional content. Others, go ahead and enjoy your animal based protein…no need to disparage this, but I understand it’s all in good fun. The price is right and I’m in for a bite. TY Woot!
So much money and research trying to make plants tase like meat. Cows have been doing that for centuries.
I’m a meat eater who eats all this type of stuff regularly too. Dunno why it’s hard to wrap heads around. Absolutely insane, DRY, shelf life. Packed with protein. Can season and prep it in all the same ways…
Anywho, Jada is ‘famous’ for appearing on Shark Tank. Like all Shark Tank products, they’re priced into the realm of novelty and one off purchases. But this Woot price isn’t bad, especially given it’s already seasoned which saves a step. I’ve only tried Jada’s plain product though, so no opinions on the flavor. They use TWP(wheat) versus TVP (soy(usually)) which is harder to get on its own and a little pricier. I find it to be a more meaty texture without needing as much extra ingredients as TVP. Their brand selling point is that everything is prepackaged and measured, but still dry. Just add water and oil. The drawback is, you have to make the whole package at once since the dry ingredients separate. And I felt the leftovers didn’t maintain a good texture. But if you’re feeding three or four it’ll all be great.
I’m sure the price is right for the amount but without having tried this yet, I cannot justify buying that much and risk not liking it.
As for normal versus conventional, meat-eaters can survive a meal without meat. Vegans, vegetarians, and those with dietary or religious restrictions have a harder time of it.
FYI meat eater here though striving to reduce the amount of red meat I ingest. Quality over quantity and all that.
I was vegetarian for several years. I had grown up eating meat and I did miss it. Products like this made it easier to stick with being veg.
you never hear anyone trying to come up with Broccoli flavoured steak
Mind if I take that idea?
Plant based hmmmm……could it be weeds under the guise of a real nutritional substance? I’ll pass, since I already know what pork rinds can do for ya!
Wonder if you could mix this in with Tuno and make some type of patty? Yum.
So that’s how the world is going to end. Cool.
