Passed by a Del Taco the other day.

Big, huge banner out front. Announcing "Beyond" Meat.

What the hell is that?

And is it way, way beyond meat, or is it just a little bit past meat?

Has meat at Del Taco passed to the great beyond? Is it the other side of meat?

Do I need to consult a psychic to eat meat from the beyond?

I was okay with meat. I don't know if I'm ready to venture beyond meat.

All very lofty and mystical. I'm not down with mystical meat, I don't think.

My refrigerator experience shows that what is "beyond meat" is actually just "rotten meat."

So it's "passed" somehow, has it? morphed into another entity?

So I'll reckon that "beyond" meat is meat that has exceeded its expiration date. -Got it.

I’ve had a beyond burger. Bought it at the grocery store and grilled it up.

It was pretty good. It ain’t meat but it’s not so bad as a substitute on occasion.

So how far beyond of a burger was it? Was it "out of this world?"

Beyond Food.



I hear they are higher in sodium,
high in saturated fats,
Not a calorie wise choice either.

Cording cautions that Beyond Meat products have a health halo around them, and notes that you really should think of them like you would any other burger or sausage. “Consider it a swap for your favorite meat-based burger or sausage

F-A-R-K that. Way "beyond" any possibility that I will buy any of that.

Nah, it was good but crazy expensive. And not as good as meat. But i’ll try almost anything once.

You know, they always say it is, or even better. I suppose from a marketing standpoint they have to.

But it never is, is it? Nope.

If you want a burger, then just get a damn burger. If you want a steak, then get a friggin' steak.

Don't bother with "steak-like substance".
