    There is a whole industry these days to create tastes to fool even cooks.
    Raspberry flavors for instance are derived from some beaver gland.
    Disgusting! Natural flavors on foods are many times just fake ones.
    I stay away from fake foods.

    While admittedly unusual, I don't see why beaver gland is disgusting unless you're a vegetarian/vegan or don't want to eat beavers. "Natural flavors" aren't "fake" as in a man-made chemical, those are legally required to be listed as artificial flavors.

    Beyond virtue-signalling about how pristine and contra-modern your diets are (lol, like you've never had and enjoyed soda, candy, energy drinks, flavored yogurt, breakfast cereal, basically ANY fast food ever in your lives or perhaps sitting in your fridge right now) or railing on unhealthy vegans/vegetarians, has anyone actually tried either of these or known people who have?

I see they also have an American webpage, so I think you can get it over there as well.

    I've never seen these, are they soy-based or something else? We just got Quorn in my area, which I believe has been in Europe for quite a long time.

    Raspberry flavors should be derived from real Raspberries, derived from a beaver is unnatural in my view.
    I have no problem with vegetarian/vegan foods as long as I know all the ingredients and flavors in it. If I cannot pronounce the words on the label, I don't eat it.

    I definitely agree they should be labelled differently at the very least, too much is is obfuscated. Believe it or not, raspberry flavoring often comes from corn though, so you don't have to worry too much about the beaver gland stuff at least - doesn't seem to be cost effective.

    It is soy-based, with other ingredients such as spices, maltodextrin, dextrose, fibers and rice flour. Don't think any of their products have any quorn in them.

    I just discovered they have started doing hamburgers as well. And they've also been making their own frozen pizzas for some time. Never had any of the pizzas myself, but I've heard it's very good. Everything I've tried from Oumph! has been very tasty.

    In Sweden, there's a tradition of putting beaver glands in a bottle of liquor, to have it infused with the glands' taste and smell. 'Bäverhojt' they call it. Not for the faint of heart.

    Ugh. I've met vegans. They are up there with PETA people for the most obnoxious people on the earth. One of the big problems with veganism is the soy in everything.
    It has the bad side effect of turning men into "soy boys".

    I found this interesting. I thought you might too.

    Much the same as most bourbon is produced in Kentucky. Even the popular Jack Daniels brand is simply called whiskey.

    Aside from an ever increasing number of mortals who have willfully chosen to worship Satan and his minions, our battle has always been against the powers and principalities operating surreptitiously throughout this twisted world.
