    I loved Quorn when I was in England once, and missed it coming back. Can’t find it in Canada.

    We’ve got it here in the US – by far my favorite fake chicken, but I haven’t had/seen any other fake meats of theirs.

    I liked Quorn a lot when I bought it as a meat substitute back in the UK in 2003. The patties and chicken-flavored items were pretty good but the “ground beef” style was amazing. I made a huge quorn-and-veg shepherd’s pie style casserole and my flatmates ate all the leftovers never guessing it wasn’t beef or lamb.

    After a terrible year trying to be vegetarian I embraced my inner carnivore and I eat a lot better now but Quorn is something I kept eating even after the soy cheese and black bean burgers were gone.

    Let’s hope the price drops a bit.

    What is the difference between Quorn and Doritos other than more protein I guess? I’ve only ever had it in Scandinavian countries, I have never seen it in the States. While it may contain protein I am skeptical that its nutritional values are anywhere near that of beef, chicken or pork. I am also concerned about where Quorn is made, what it’s made of specifically; If it is corn where did that corn originate from, is it high quality and free from excessive pesticides or is it simply feed corn that is intended for livestock. There was a big scandal in Mexico and the United States when it was revealed that much of the Masa that was being produced (for tortillas) was being made from livestock feed rather than corn that was intended for human consumption. If it’s so profitable, what does that say about its quality?

    Edit: punctuation, added: are, is
    Edit2: TIL Quorn is NOT corn, but Mycoprotein, egg whites and some other stuff.
