An online poll that surveyed 1000 people over the space of a day. To promote DoorDash adding fake meat. Finds people want to eat fake meat. Geez, that's not completely open for manipulation. I wonder how exactly they "calibrated" the data for age and gender or where the poll was run. Or what the questions evern were.

Fake meat seems to be one of these industries where there's a PR push of lies and bullshit to try and make it a thing. While I have no evidence of this. I suspect burger chains with "plant-based" options only do so because they are being paid to, or the products are very cheap. Subsidised by investors in that particular brand of fake meat trying to gain enough consumers to the point they can get a return on the investment. It's always branded with what company's plant-based meat is used.

Plant-based meat is a space people see there to be a potentially large demand for in the future, even if not the current products and people want to win that space in the future.

Plus a dose of, "virtue signalling" that can go along with restaurants that serve meat saying they have plant options.

With the virtue signalling of normal people pretending these plant-based options are good and like real meat. They aren't. People like the idea of a meat alternative and so go along with the lie. If you mention they are shit, you're against the good feelings and intentions of a world with more fake meat.


Here's another one of their little lies and deceptions.
A majority (65 percent) are choosing plant-based meat to eat healthier

Notice they are not saying plant-based meat is healthier. While completely suggesting it is.

Experience from a community food bank: couldn't give Beyond Meat patties and Tofurkeys away, literally. No one wanted them. No one. All those billboards about 1 in 5 kids starving or whatever shit? Even their parents said no to the fucking fake soy meat shit lmao.

Meanwhile the entitled hoodrats and trailer methmoms would yell and start shit trying to get more ground meat and chicken. Demand outpaced supply every day.

They can beat the eternally guilted and brainwashed leftists into eating this shit but lower class and working class people won't bite.

78% of Americans are NOT "grilling plant based meat this summer." In the article's words, "78 percent of Americans are looking to add plant-based meats to barbecues." I'd bet that this survey asked the sample of Americans if they'd eat a plant burger if it was offered to them at a barbeque or something, and 78% of them answered yes.

78 PERCENT OF AMERICANS ARE GRILLING PLANT-BASED MEAT THIS SUMMER

Americans are looking to grill more vegan meat this 4th of July and a partnership between DoorDash and Beyond Meat is here to help.​

majority of Americans (78 percent) are looking to bring plant-based meat to the party this grilling season and a new partnership between delivery platform DoorDash and vegan brand Beyond Meat is helping them do just that. In time for the 4th of July holiday, DoorDash and Beyond Meat will be offering Americans in 14 cities a limited-edition grilling kit featuring the new Beyond Burger 3.0 patty. The grilling kits will be available for $14.99 starting July 1 through DashMart—a convenience store concept from DoorDash—and, in addition to the vegan burger patty, include a custom grilling mitt, apron, grilling tools, a bottle opener, and a recipe card with custom dishes.

“This 4th of July weekend, we’re excited to partner with DoorDash to further our mission to make plant-based options more accessible to all,” Rebecca Infusino, Beyond Meat Vice President of Retail Sales, said. “There’s nothing more classic and delicious than a perfectly grilled, juicy burger on a hot summer day. We’ve made this classic pastime even better this summer with the great taste and nutritional benefits of our newest Beyond Burger, and the unbeatable convenience of having it delivered to your barbecue in under an hour.”

Vegan meat gains grill space at American barbecues​

The partnership capitalizes on new data collected by DKC Analytics that reveals American behaviors around cookouts and grilling are shifting this summer. Data collected from a sample of 1,000 US adults between May 27, 2021 and May 28, 2021—which was calibrated to accurately reflect US adult age demographics and provide an even gender split—found that 78 percent of Americans are looking to add plant-based meats to barbecues. A majority (65 percent) are choosing plant-based meat to eat healthier, a trend that is being led by millennials.

The survey also found that the majority of Americans (73 percent) find grilling to be an essential summer activity, more so than visiting family (69 percent) or dating (36 percent). Furthermore, data showed that 60 percent of Americans shop last-minute for barbecue supplies and 72-percent forget an item when doing so—which makes convenient grocery delivery platforms such as DashMart a handy resource.

“We’re thrilled to partner with Beyond Meat to offer customers their favorite grilling essentials conveniently from DashMart,” Andrew Ladd, Director of New Verticals at DoorDash, said. “At DoorDash we’re committed to bringing customers all the best of their neighborhoods for every occasion, and as summer gets under way we’re excited to unveil this exclusive kit perfect for any barbecue while giving people access to the essentials they need on-demand.”

Generally, the popularity of vegan burgers on delivery platforms, including on DoorDash, has been skyrocketing in recent years. According to its internal data revealed in its “DoorDash Deep Dish” report last year, orders for vegan burgers increased by 433 percent in the six-month period from January 2020 to the end of June 2020.

Beyond Meat’s new, juicer vegan burger​

The DoorDash partnership showcases Beyond Meat’s newest iteration of the Beyond Burger—the first version of which it launched at a single Whole Foods Market location in Colorado in 2016. The new Beyond Burger is made to further compete with animal meat in new ways. The new plant-based patty has 35-percent less saturated fat (and 35-percent less overall fat) than an 80/20 beef patty and is fortified with B vitamins and minerals comparable to the nutritional profile of beef. As is the case with all vegan products, the new Beyond Burger does not have any cholesterol.

Outside of the DoorDash partnership, Beyond Meat’s new patty is available at retailers nationwide—and in new formats that aim to make the Beyond Burger more affordable and accessible. Whereas the brand’s original Beyond Burger was sold in two-patty packs, the new iteration is available in both two-patty packs and bulk four-patty packs ($9.99) to better compete with the price of beef. The new vegan meat will also be offered as a one-pound Beyond Beef pack later this summer.

Beyond Meat is also launching its Beyond Burger 3.0 with its foodservice partners this month and aims to release another Beyond Burger patty that features half the saturated fat of an 80/20 beef patty later this year.
If I wanted any sort of meat, I'd either take the real deal or learn chemistry & biology to make my own lab grown meat. This article just encouraged me that I should by more meat to spite the vegans. Also, a lot of this """"""article"""""" just seems to be an advertisement for soy burgers.

I did try it once out of curiosity, but it is not the same. If I want a meatless burger, I will stick with a good old fashioned veggie burger that doesn't pretend to be meat. We have had meatless alternatives before the fake meat craze, and I don't see what the big deal is other than marketing bs and an excuse to virtue signal.

I bet most of this is people trying it for the same reason. Try it once and then switch back to the real deal. I question where they are getting their numbers from seems high.

I think the purpose of these fake meats trying to taste like the real deal are for these reasons:
  1. It’s to lure in meat eaters into going vegan, as one thing they’ll miss is the taste of meat
  2. For people that are already vegans that crave the taste of meat but don’t want to go for the real deal
  3. For people to virtue signal about saving the planet while eating something that isn’t as environmentally friendly as they think it is
These are my guesses as to why people go for this and why people are trying to create a market for it. The saddest out of these reasons is probably for the already vegans eating stuff like this because it’s full-on admitting that they aren’t satisfied with the vegetable substitutes. If being vegan was truly as satisfying as they claim, they wouldn’t go for this stuff, as vegetables by themselves are meant to taste fine on their own, as you said. This can also count for vegetarians too, but they don’t seem as into this stuff anyway since being vegetarian allows you to supplement with real milk and eggs.

eating fake meat/bugs to help the planet is the most globalist packaged feel good lie, if your food crosses the border, goes on a ship, plane, or truck, whatever you're eating is negligible. eating something you grew in your garden or raised in your backyard isn't as fashionable as the big giant BEYOND MEAT logo, also if you don't eat animals you will die

and I'll bet they didn't even tell them that the plant in question is soy. They probably made it sound like they were offering those spicy veggieburgers made of black pinto bean mixed up with flour.

I remember when the lockdowns started and couldn't find meat in most stores, and the only thing left was the fake meat products.

Don’t be silly, everyone wants burgers made of soy and pea protein this summer. Actual hamburger meat is for Nazis. You don’t want to be a Nazi, do you?
Ehmm....
