a couple things stuck out to me in this podcast. 1. almond milk has been called milk since medival times. 2. the dairy industry just got in trouble from the truth in advertising commission because of their claims of no hormones (every animal has hormones) so them saying calling impossible burger meat is misleading is kind of funny. 3. you answered the question of why the impossible burger is more expensive at the beginning, subsidies.

I found these burgers in my semi-small town's grocery store and local pancake house restaurant! Great to see options even in my town! I tested my family without telling them it was different. . . ..... 2 10yr old boys and a meat loving man..... . . . While they could tell it was a little different from normal, they LOVED IT!! My husband came home while it was grilling... I was nervous because it smelled DIFFERENT... but he said it smells DELICIOUS and after he ate it I told him what it was. We've changed our burger of choice from now on!! KEEP IT COMING!
