    "I walked away 100% convinced that McDonald’s could replace all its beef with beef-flavored seitan and NO ONE would notice the difference. McDonald’s would save a fortune, health would be improved, and the carbon and resource footprint of McDonald’s would be massively slashed."


    What is seitan, you ask?

    So long as theyre serving crap, might as well make it for as cheap as possible. I still wont eat it. Good business move for mcdonalds though if it does taste and feel the same. And frankly, their cows arent very well treated either.


    I agree with the whole statement except for the health being improved bit.

    The writer is a biased idiot. I stopped reading after a few paragraphs.


    Mickey D buys beef from many sources and serves it. It's no different that any other place that doesn't use grass fed, yada yada. Some is domestic, some is from Latin America. Maybe other places.


    If one can't tell the difference between ground beef and soy product, they should do us all and themselves a favor and shoot themselves. No more untruthful whining.

    Seitan is gross. There is no way that the texture in any way shape or form resembles hamburger.

    But then... McD's would become a totally vegan restaurant!


    I'm sure a lot of CWs wouldn't mind this.
