Are saying that their claims about Heme don't stand the test of reality?
Heme?

Did you watch the video posted by @bb1836 or go on Impossible's website and read up a bit on it? They claim that this is the protein that gives beef its unique flavor, and got that protein from plant sources.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Nice. Well, without that knowledge influencing my sampling, I discovered that it's not all its cracked up to be.

What's with everyone accusing me of ditching them? Let me live my life you ingrates.

I had the Impossible Burger at Mocha Bleu and contrary to someone's experience above, it was to put it nicely - disgusting. It did not remotely resemble meat in look, taste or texture. Let's just say I would have taken JJ's raw burger over this any day.

To add insult to injury, they charged $3 (IINM) extra for a slice of cheese (the only reason you buy this in milchig restaurant).

It is no more innovative IMHO than the standard parve soya fare that's popular abroad. I think that all the hype is from vegans who are overly enthusiastic about any meat substitute, not carnivores who prefer a piece of meat, but care limited by kashrus restrictions.

I am not getting my hopes up for the 2.0.

A friend bought a case of 1.0, will be making it at my place Sunday IY"H if you're in town ;)
Pretty bad. Though the cheese, sauteed onions, and pickle were good ;D
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.
