    Timmies I would say their customer base is mostly 50 plus, truckers and people on road trips stopping for a coffee to go. On road trips I stop at EnRoute cause every EnRoute have a timmies so I pick up a blueberry donut lol my wife always bring up Kramer's muffin top cause the blueberry donut looks like 1/2 a donut.

    The idea that BM is similar to dog food seems like a clear attempt to smear the product as being bad. It isn't.

    There is nothing inherently wrong with corn, rice, wheat, coconut oil, glutens, etc.

    BM is more healthy than 95% of processed foods out there, with regard to the ingredients list. I'm not arguing it is a well balanced meal. It seems to be quite unbalanced amount of sodium and a bit too much trans fat.

    Read the ingredients of any processed food in your cupboard. If that doesn't offend you, read the ingredients of the soda you are drinking.

    By the way, I'm not a big fan of Beyond Meat. I like the product and I love the idea but the only advantage of BM over meat is ethical. History has proven, this isn't enough to build a product empire.

    It's a great start. I hope this triggers other companies to come up with their own meat substitutes. Perhaps someone will make one that tastes as good as BM, is more healthy, and is cost competitive with meat.

    I think the reason people "want to eat a burger" but not "want to eat a burger" is because of how inhumanely the animals are treated, in a lot of cases.

    I used to eat way too much meat. I don't want to become a vegan but it was ridiculous.

    We would go to Vegas and I couldn't wait to tie I to a prime rib the size of a pot roast. On the plane home, I'd always feel sick. You know, that sluggish feeling that comes with obscene levels of over eating.

    How many animals died so I could eat until I made myself sick? I find the thought upsetting.

    I'd like to eat meat but in reasonable quantities and I'd like to know the animal had a reasonably happy life.

    Do you think a lion cares about a gazelle's "feelings" right before it tears into it's throat? No, it's only thinking "I need to eat".
    We as humans have decided that we have "evolved" above animals, but this is BS. We are still animals. We still eat, breathe, fart, crap, etc. just like the rest of the animal kingdom.

    1) All life feels pain including plants. There is no "humane" way to eat something without causing pain. To think there is a "humane" way to kill and eat is simply a delusion.
    2) To say eating veggies is better for the environment that raising cattle is also BS. Before the settlers killed off the bison, there were approx 30 million living in the USA. Here in the US, we have about 90 million head of cattle. Do you really think an additional 60 million cow farts can really change the climate? Seriously?

    I do agree with on thing from TomB16 -> eat in moderation

    I'm not saying it's my view, though I do agree with it to an extent. All life feels pain, yes. But if you watch some of the documentaries (which I've never watched because I don't want to know), you'll see they're not just killing the animals, they are doing it in awful ways. I've avoided the documentaries like the plague and have just heard about them. Is it "humane" to kill them in the first place, no. It's not a painless or quick death in lots of cases though, which makes it even worse.

    Yes I've watched the "food, inc" movie as well, but does that really show ALL farmers and the way animals are treated? Nope.

    I agree there are some that should be investigated and prosecuted for cruelty. The ones who treat animals like that give the rest of the farming community a bad name.

    The majority of farmers know the better they treat their animals, the more money they make, because the animals will be healthy and bring in a bigger payload then a bunch of sickly looking animals.

    Agreed, most individual farmers are probably doing things as ethically as they can. It's the big ag companies that are fucking it all up.
