People in Canada are really not liking Wendy's new plant based burger
People in Canada are really not here for Wendy's new plant based burger, and they're not being shy about it.
The Plantiful — a plant-based burger made in-house and topped with cheese, crisp lettuce, fresh tomato, pickle, onion, ketchup, and mayo — launched across Canada on Thursday.
Unfortunately, Canadians are loving the burger about as much as a dentist loves cavities.
Which is to say, they aren't.
This vegan customer gave it a 0/10.
i still can’t get over how much the plantiful sucks— 𝐤𝐚𝐢𝐥𝐞𝐞 ♡ (@cheriekailee) February 26, 2020
While this man's review includes the descriptor "absolute garbage."
Just tried Wendy's Plantiful burger. Do not try, it is absolute garbage. You know that subtle aftertaste of Beyond Burger? The entire burger tastes like that but stronger, and it feels mushy. In the world where other chains have a really good plant burgers, this is disappointing— Alexander Kuzkin (@Edurd0CS) February 23, 2020
And this vegetarian customer described the plant based burger as "kinda gross and salty."
This customer urged people to go to Burger King for a plant based burger instead.
I tried the Wendy's plantiful burger being test marked near me. Honestly, it's worse than Tim's beyond burger. Try BK instead. BK will also let you request a veggie cooking surface.— Tiffany Bunni (@tiffbun) February 25, 2020
While this customer felt that A&W;'s Beyond burger was really the only good plant based burger in Canada.
Some vegans are pointing out that the term "plant based" is a little misleading.
WHY IS THE WENDYS PLANT BASED BURGER ON A BUN WITH DAIRY— ESAM (Panda Global) (@PG_ESAM) February 27, 2020
IM SAD, I CANT EAT IT WHEN I GO FULL VEGAN
The patties tasted good but I'm disappointed
Especially since the burger has cheese on it.
@Wendys Hey, your plant based burger, might want to tell people it is topped with cheese and mayo. Disaster visit to your Dollard restaurant today! IT'S NOT VEGAN!— Clare (@clare2904) February 27, 2020
With Tim Hortons officially scrapping Beyond Meat products, Wendy's is probably hoping to fill a gap in the Canadian marketplace.
Unfortunately, it looks like Wendy's Plantiful burger isn't going to do the trick.
