Let me see … I first tried plant-based meat in August 2019.
I can’t recall whether it was, what’s the description, meat substitute made by Impossible Foods. What I remember is: I went out for comfort food after uploading my toughest Electone arrangement ever. I ended up at Swensen’s Junction 8 and there was an Impossible Burger promotion—hey, maybe it was by Impossible Foods after all.
Always keen to try new stuff, I ordered the promo right away. I then spent half an hour eating; most of the time, distracted by my faltering upload views. I completely forgot I was eating plant-based meat till the manager came and asked me about it.
This incredible taste experience didn’t quite transform me overnight into a big meat substitute fan, though, just to be clear. That said, ever since, I wouldn’t hesitate to order something made with Impossible meat or other plant-based meat substitutes as long as I like the dish. To me, it’s as good as real meat, as far as taste and texture are concerned.
And so I didn’t head to the restaurant with a magnifying glass for believability when invited to try Impossible Food’s fan-favorite Impossible™ Chicken Nuggets; I knew the nuggets would be great. I was there to see how good it gets, whether they could actually be better than “real nuggets.” What led to nearly 3-to-1 participants in a Texan blind taste test preferring these plant-based nuggets over animal chicken nuggets as well.
It nearly happened again! I didn’t forget what I was eating but it was so easy to—like I told the staff, you could have fooled me into thinking I was eating chicken. And yup, I now understand why that American taste test yielded such astonishing results.
How to put it? The nuggets were just … very well made? Perfectly breaded, fresh tasting, full of meaty texture and juice too. Of course, the great preparation by the chef of the tasting venue has something to do with it but outside of that, I think the nuggets themselves were still awesome to begin with. Likely, easy for anyone to refry too if buying from supermarkets.
Summary: I could eat a whole basket of these nuggets as a meal anytime.
