What's the point? It's all gimmick. Why bother serve substitutes that's no healthier than the original? It's deep fried and high in salt. Consuming food substitutes in order to cling onto old habits is a sign of lack of commitment. Food companies should stop fooling people, and people should stop fooling themselves.
New York (The Verge) — Beyond Meat and KFC partner to test fried, plant-based “chicken” theverge.com/2019/8/26/2083….
Beyond Meat and KFC have announced that one Atlanta restaurant’s customers will get to try Beyond Fried Chicken, a fried plant-based “chicken.” Customers will receive a complimentary sample for one day only on August 27th.
Multiple fast-food restaurants have tested and implemented plant-based food options on their menus recently. Burger King rolled out its Impossible Whopper to all of its US stores, and Subway announced plans to test the Beyond Meatball Marinara in 685 restaurants in the US and Canada. Carl’s Jr. now sells a meatless burger made by Beyond Meat, and White Castle is offering the Impossible Slider. These restaurants partner with either Impossible Foods or Beyond Meat, setting the companies up for fierce competition. — Ashley Carman/@verge
