Re: YAGGA

I've tried all three of the Yagga products, which I also bought from VeggieStuff. The Veggie Roast does have some flavour due to the herbs used, but I found the other two to be very bland. I won't be buying them again.

I've never seen a fish substitute now I come to think of it. Redwoods make a substitute fish finger and Realeat make a fishless fish cake. Neither of them taste much like fish. There was a Taiwanese firm called VeggieMaster which did make some very realistic products but they don't seem to be avail...

Not eating fish in Grimsby must come as a shock to the locals, I would think! It must do to the local MP, Austin Mitchell. He is living in the past and cannot accept that the fishing industry has been over for 30 years. It seems to be all he ever talks about. The town suffers from massive deprivati...

There has been no fishing fleet to speak of in either Grimsby or Hull for some years now. There are a few inshore boats in GY.
There is still a massive fish processing industry. The fish is mostly imported from Iceland and Russia

I know that some 'vegetarians' do eat fish but to be honest, I don't consider them to be very, um, vegetarian. No offense to any such reading, of course. It is these people that cause most of the problems. They go into a restaurant or cafe. They have a habit of letting everyone know that they are "...

I have found that the soft variety is quite good - not much different from real soft cheese. I used to buy one called Swedish Soft, which is made by the same people who make Swedish Glaze. I can not longer get it as l live in a cultural backwater. I now use Tofutti Creamy Smooth. Tofutti also make c...

I don't like them either. So I don't buy them.

There is an alternative to Quorn. I use Realeat Chicken-Style Pieces. These are available from most Holland and Barratt stores and are Vegan.
I find the taste more pleasing than Quorn.

Don't forget that Vegetarian Society members get a 10% discount at H&B.

Vegetarian shock warning - the following may be distasteful to some people As a vegetarian I don't find it distasteful. Quite the opposite in fact. These are animals that have been killed accidentally and have lived their lives in the wild. In my opinion if people are going to eat meat it is far be...
