Chick-Fil-A copy cat but vegan

Image
  I have been watching way to many copy cat YouTube videos lately. I have never even been to Chick-Fil-A but decided to make the sauce after I saw the recipe on Raphael Gomes channel. The only things in the sauce that are not already vegan were mayo and honey I have access to vegan substitutes.  I found the vegan honey didn’t taste like honey it’s less sweet and has a darker flavour like molasses. It’s good though. Recipe is simple mix ingredients in a jar I didn’t follow exact measurements. I then let it sit in the fridge for an hour.  That looks pretty close to the pictures I have seen of the sauce. It tasted pretty good if I make it again I will add more honey as it wasn’t sweet enough I didn’t account for the milder taste of vegan honey.  I live close to a no waste grocery store and they sell beyond tenders by the piece. I had waffle fries in my freezer and use my airfryer to heat the tenders and fries. The tenders are a little expensive so I didn’t want to experiment with doing an

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
