Best of the Blogs, Consumer: New Chicken Substitute That Actually Tastes Good


Plus, Americans like broccoli, despite Supreme Court arguments that imply otherwise.

MINYANVILLE ORIGINAL This column highlights the most interesting and useful business and financial commentary for consumers from around the Web every Wednesday.

Link: Bittman-Approved Vegan Chicken Substitute Might Be The Best Fake Meat Ever
"A new vegan chicken substitute called Beyond Meat is selling out of grocery stores in California. Backed by Twitter co-founders Evan Williams and Biz Stone and vetted by flexitarian hero Mark Bittman, this fake meat supposedly looks and tastes just like the real thing. Beyond Meat sounds pretty amazing; it might just be the best meat alternative on the market."

Link: Americans actually really like broccoli
"The New York Times has a fun piece Thursday looking back at how broccoli came to play a starring role in the legal challenges to the Affordable Care Act. It came up nine times in official transcripts in the Supreme Court, often getting dinged as the 'distasteful' vegetable that Americans could hypothetically be forced to buy, should Congress require the purchase of insurance.

"There's just one problem there: Dig into the data, and it looks like Americans don't actually find broccoli distasteful at all. Quite to the contrary, the much maligned vegetable's popularity among farmers and the general public alike has boomed in recent years."

Link: Vegan sandwiches debut at Subway restaurants
"For vegans, fast food used to mean a salad. But that's about to change as Subway, the world's largest restaurant chain, adds three new vegan sandwiches to its menu.

"While the restaurant chain has long offered their 'Veggie Delight' at all of its franchises, that sandwich is built around cheese, which is off the menu for vegans. Through their We Love Subway campaign, animal advocacy group Compassion over Killing has been lobbying Subway to offer more substantial protein-packed vegan meals. And with these newest menu items, Subway has obliged."
