Vegan Shrimp Sparks Huge Social Media Debate

Going vegan has become a huge trend in recent years. There are so many vegan and plant-based options. The question is, would you ever try vegan shrimp?

As I was scrolling through social media, a picture of shrimp and grits crossed my timeline. The grits looked great! I could see cheese in the grits, & it seemed like enough butter and seasoning were in the grits too. They even took it that extra step and put shrimp in the grits. what more could you ask for?!

As I looked closer at the shrimp they seemed off. A little off in their shape. It turns out they were vegan shrimp! Who knew they even made those?!


As a part-time vegan, I was actually embarrassed to see this. I feel like I represent the vegan community to some extent, but I still understand the meat-eater community as well. You know people on social media voiced their opinions about this and it was hilarious!





I did find a few tweets that co-signed the vegan shrimp and said they were actually good. Honestly, that's usually how it goes with vegan food. People automatically hate it because it's different. They form an opinion before they even try it.

With all of that said, I doubt I'll be trying vegan shrimp anytime soon. It just doesn't feel right to me. Lol! The shape is odd but I can get past it. I think it's just the fact that it's not real shrimp really throws me for a loop.
