All things being equal, would you choose and eat fake chicken over real chicken meat?

@Thomas,
The chicken was looking for feed.

@failures art,
Talk about vacuous theatrics, f'art.
I certainly don't mind you've gone vegan, and past that, pro invention.

Me, I'd rather eat vegetable dishes of indian origin and once in a while of my own origin. I eat a lot of beans, so much that I don't fart from them any more.
Well, hardly ever.

Concocted foods should be a separate subject.

If people like eating meat, then they should just say "I like eating meat, and that's why I eat it," instead of finding elaborate ways to object to a Boca burger's manufacturing.

Well I've never heard of Boca burgers (wrong country, or else I've not looked in the right places) but I wouldn't buy & eat the Oz equivalent either.
I assume they're vegetarian?
I still prepare & eat a lot of vegetarian food these days. You'd have to be a rather lazy, uninspired vegetarian to choose processed burgers as a regular part of your diet. A commitment to vegetarianism would usually involve a commitment to learn to cook healthy & interesting vegetarian food, wouldn't it? (if a person is committed in a long haul sense .... otherwise you'd get bored with your diet pretty quickly) And that involves a lot more work, prior planning (soaking beans, etc), researching new recipes, learning about flavourings like herbs & spices, etc ....
Or that was my experience, anyway .. a lot more effort involved than "meat & two veg" dinners.

I'm turned off by both the vegetarian & meat processing methods in those photographs. I'd actually prefer a throbbing steak Wink (which I don't like much) to food that's processed in that way.

And there's the expense, too. Good vegetarian ingredients are considerably less expensive to purchase than meat (say nothing of healthier & tastier than processed meat & vegetarian products)
Plus there's the added bonus of eliminating any "mystery ingredients" in both meat-based or vegetarian processed foods! Smile

@msolga,
"I've never heard of Boca burgers (wrong country, or else I've not looked in the right places) but I wouldn't buy & eat the Oz equivalent either."

Boca burgers are the worst kind of veggie burgers. Really odd texture (chunks of hay-like substance in it) even and mediocre taste. Edible but not a good choice when other veggieburgers are much better.

I like eating meat AND I like eating veggieburgers. Stopped eating them on a regular basis because they're expensive AND high in sodium.

@tsarstepan,
Ah.
Now I know.
Thank you, tsar. Smile

So what do people do to make them taste more interesting?
Sauce (as in ketchup) ?

@Thomas,
I consider stuff at McDonalds as concocted but also at places I've eaten lately with Roger, your basic ground Foo.

They won't serve round Foo to me rare. Consider the liability.
