I've always found some of the "veggie" terminology funny - since if non-meat tastes so good, why isn't it referred by what it is instead of by the animal it isn't. I'm going to take this as an honest question and not a snarky jab. It's because any given product line is basically made out of the same stuff, and just seasoned differently to mimic whatever taste is wanted. Some are soy, some are wheat gluten, some are a protein derived from a relative of the mushroom. Naming them after what they are made out of is not a useful descriptor of what they taste like nor what function they serve. So instead, companies have opted to name their products after the food they are meant to replace in a vegetarian diet. It's a more useful descriptor for Quorn brand, for example, to call one product chik'n nuggets and another grounds rather than to call it all mycoprotein.As for whether or not they taste good, that's just a matter of personal preference. If you don't like them, great, don't eat them. If you've never tried them, then there is no reason to disparage them based on a naming convention you don't like. If you do like them, then eat them and try to ignore the silly names.DEG
