I have been seriously impressed by the taste, the look and the smell of this plant-based alternative to meat. This is now my go-to. It is as easy to cook as other patties, and knowing that no animal was killed for it makes it so much better.

Beyond Meat The Beyond Burger
It was just okay. It's probably less healthy than a lean beef burger, because it's beyond processed. Processed foods are not healthy. I'd still recommend it to someone who doesn't eat meat, though.
I've had a few Beyond Meat burgers in local pubs, but this was the first time I'd purchased and cooked at home. The experience was the same - one of the tastiest veggie burgers I've eaten. I would purchase again for a special occasion, but the price point will keep me from adding to my grocery list on a regular basis.
Purchased these after trying the beyond burger at A&W. Definitely didn't taste as good when I made them at home, although I think that could be expected. For the price I wouldn't purchase again. However, I am not a vegetarian so maybe if I didn't eat meat I would have been happier with these.

Omg! We were so excited when A&W started selling beyond burgers. We ate them and loved them all the time. Finally they started selling them at our local Sobeys. We buy them all the time. They are loaded with sodium but its a yummy treat!
I like that there are more options for people who want to be plant based. I did not like the taste as it mimics meat and I have never liked the taste of meat. The other beyond meat products like the sausages are excellent
I am glad we are starting to see more and more plant based products available. The Beyond Burger is one of my favourites.
I know it is not meant to be a healthier option, and it is not marketed as such. It is meant to be a sustianable alternative to meat, and boy does it taste similar. I am impressed how they've got the process down to the tee, adding beet juice to make it look like meat.
It's a sustianable option that makes a difference. Instead of burning down rainforests for raising cows and feeding them, we now have burgers that taste like meat but are completely plant based.
My only criticism is the price point. If they keep the price point this expensive, no one is going to fully commit to switching,. There is going to be a competitor that comes out with a better alternative at a fraction of the cost they're charging and I hope they're ready for that...
