Fast-casual chainlet fresh & co. has added dishes like this Spicy “Unchicken” Salad sandwich made with Beyond Meat — a vegetable-based chicken facsimile product — to menus at its eight locations. The offerings are part of a forthcoming wave of meatless products designed to mimick the texture and taste of meat and dairy but that are actually vegan, like Hampton Creek Food’s Beyond Eggs sunny-side up substitute. If this catches on, soon everyone will be asking, which came first, the completely artificial chicken, or the 100 percent synthetic egg? [Related, Earlier]
