  • In the race with rival Impossible Foods, no detail is too small for Beyond Meats. Even the Beyond Burger's plant fats have been revised to look more like fat and gristle.

    Trying Burger King's Impossible Whopper:

    Impossible Burger now impossibly close to the real thing:

    I tasted a lab-grown chicken nugget:

    at $35 dollars a pound... yeah right... and what do we do with all the cattle we are growing, sell them to other countries who don't produce enough meat for their population?... is this going to be a "Green" food that has to be subsidized by the Government like Wind Generators and Solar Panel?... and what about the actual Flavor... different cuts of meat from different animals have different textures and flavors... is Beyond Beef 2.0 going to taste the exact same for the next 50 years or how are they going to achieve quality control of mass production of various batches in different parts of the country or world, like Pepsi tasting the same no matter where it's made.... at the moment this is a niche elitist market with a lot of major hurtles to overcome... One of the biggest is blaming cattle for causing Climate Change and slaughtering millions of animals and replacing it with fake meat... you will be putting 10's of thousands of people out of work by closing down the meat industry... I think it would be cheaper and more environmentally friend to turn to cannibalism... and tastier... that would also solve the overpopulation crisis that is causing most of the Climate issues... Save the Cows and the Planet, Eat People... LMAO

    Has anyone here ever tried the
    first hand burger from little lads restaurant in Maine. No scientist put them together. It's so very simple and delicious. Why not use theirs.

    This makes me want to spend time in chemistry class and get a beyond burger. I feel I have been seriously robbed of quality time with both.

    Great video, Brian. I have some of the older model Beyond Meat (Version 1.0) patties. Are there any over-the-air updates available . . . a la Tesla?

    Why would I want to eat fake meat? Doesn't taste as good as real meat, doesn't have the same nutrients and is also more expensive. But I'm sure vegans will buy it, they desperately crave meat :-D

    Ok vegan's why would you even want to eat a fake beef would think you would not have a thing to do with it. Why eat fake when you can eat real veg's.......
