Day 5 Jamaica Trip April 2024

 Today my friends aunt was coming to pick us up at 10. I went for breakfast at 9:30. My friend was there earlier and she got some plantains today but they weren’t very ripe. Breakfast was the same as yesterday for me so I didn’t take any pictures. In the morning I did call for some bottles of water to my room but it was too early I learned I could get some at the buffet.  My friends aunt was delayed so had time to sit at the coffee shop. This was the view from the coffee area. We chatted with security and the taxi driver at the hotel for awhile before we left. We didn’t leave the hotel until 12. My friends aunt got proper plantains we ate it in the car. Today we decided to go to Ocho Rios. I have never been there and it is not that far from where we are staying. We have a driver booked for tomorrow to take us around the area and Bob Marley house tour. My friends aunt wanted Pizza Hut we stopped in a plaza that had KFC, Starbucks, and Pizza Hut. Last time I was in Jamaica I saw the plan

Beyond Meat Nuggets at A&W Canada

I remember a couple years ago when I tried the vegan nuggets at A&W Canada.They were good but I preferred the beyond burger. I thought they would be around for awhile but then they were gone. I never had a chance to try the KFC vegan popcorn chick’n before they were gone. I went to A&W the first day the Beyond Meat nuggets came out all the advertising advises they are only here for a limited time. I wanted to ensure I tried them before they get sold out. I have seen reviews of people that like them but some of their posts are sponsored. None of my posts are sponsored just my real opinion. 

I have been vegetarian for over 30 years I don’t remember liking chicken nuggets when I ate meat. I do like the Gardein brand vegan strips but they aren’t sold at fast food restaurants. I still prefer a vegan burger over nuggets any day. 

The nuggets come in a 4 piece kids size, 6 pieces, 10 pieces. I don’t remember the exact prices around $6 for both the kids and 6 piece and $9 for the 10 pieces. I got a 6 piece and asked for BBQ and Sweet and sour sauce they are the vegan sauces available. 

The nuggets were freshly fried I had to wait a couple minutes. I didn’t check the bag for sauces  before I walked the 25 minutes home. I could smell the nuggets while walking home they smelled good. Usually when I go home I reheat fries in my air-fryer I was prepared to reheat the nuggets  but they were still hot. 

I was disappointed when I checked the bag at home and there were no sauces and I didn’t have anything at home to compensate. At least they gave me three packs of ketchup. I tried one nugget plain it wasn’t that great to me. The inside was nice and moist but the breading was dry. Then I tried it with ketchup it was much better. I’m sure I would have been a lot better if I had the actual sauce with it. 

I personally thought the Beyond meat chick’n nuggets were okay I’m glad I got to try them but I won’t go out of my way to buy them in the future. If they make a burger with vegan mayo out of them then I would try that. 

As always I’m also happy when the chain restaurants are successful launching a new vegan product. I am sure other restaurants will be serving these in the future and they will be very popular. I will be happily eating the beyond burger though

  1. How do they compare to the vegan nuggets A&W had the last time? Better or the same?

    1. Probably better without trying them with sauce it is not a fair comparison
