Apparently it's supposed to be a chicken substitute. I'm not a vegetarian by the way, I was just intrigued to try them out as they were on offer.
My opinion, they do taste quite like chicken! For chicken eaters, they could never replace a nice piece of real meat, but I like them. They have the texture of chicken once cooked, although during the cooking process they do look quite horrible. Once done though they look really nice and surprisingly succulent.
They're really high in protein which is good for me as I need all the protein I can get at the moment.
The Quorn company also do mince which is supposed to replicate minced beef, and I like that too.
I don't think I could ever become vegetarian though. We just bought these to try as they were on offer.
