The system of “opting in” to online Quorn when consumers log on to supermarket shopping sites is “impractical” say internet experts. But vegetarians and carnivores alike say children should be protected from the “Quornification” of everyday life. “Those little stubby cocktail sausages may look and taste like the real thing, but they totally misrepresent reality,” one educational charity spokesperson said.
“Young adults should only learn what constitutes a toad in the hole when they’re ready. All too often, experience of online Quorn means when they reach adulthood and are faced with their first real pork sausage, they don’t know what to do. We need a total ban on hardpaw Quorn, and a debate with society’s steak holders. All too often, our society treats meat as, well, pieces of meat.”
