What I like about it?

Beyond meat burgers provide a good alternative for any kind of meat patties that is easy to use. They are frozen and must be cooked before serving. It provides a good source of protein and has the same look as its meat counterpart. Flavour wise it has quite a distinct taste. When I first use it, I used the entire pattie and I personally find the flavour too strong for me. I sliced each pattie in half side way and find the taste just right when the burger is eaten with so many other ingredients.

What I don’t like about it?

At where I live, I can buy it at a speciality vegan grocery shop. It is also quite pricey at about $10 for 2 patties. It is highly processed although all ingredients are non-GMO.

Would I give them to my children?

Beyond Meat Burger pattie is a good alternative to meat based patties. We use this product occasionally when we feel like a burger.
