Plant-based burgers have been upping their game massively this year.
And although Toni Okamoto and Michelle Cehn thought they were both delicious and very realistic – one did better than the other.
Upon taking the first bite, Cehn claimed the Beyond Burger patty tastes more like a veggie burger – though Okamoto disagreed.
Okamoto said: “It has this charred taste that makes me feel like it’s meat from a grill.”
Cehn described the burger: “It’s crispy on the outside, and still pink on the inside – it’s just kind of crazy.”
Okamoto was the first to bring up that the Impossible patty was really good, albeit salty.
Cehn added: “This tastes like meat… That’s crazy.”
“We also were preparing this on a pan and frying them up – and they looked so much like authentic meat, it’s just crazy,” the World of Vegan blogger and YouTuber admitted.
Okamoto gives the verdict: “As someone who very much cares about price and accessibility, I have to say Beyond Burger.”
Cehn agrees, saying: “Beyond Burger is the winner.
“It’s trippy how meat-like veggie burgers are getting,” she said.
“There’s just no reason anymore to turn to meat when you can have something that tastes exactly like it; it’s cholesterol-free, it’s better for the environment, better for the planet, better for the animals.
“I challenge you guys. If you can access either of these burgers, I hope you pick it up and give it a try; serve them to some of your omnivorous friends.”
