The best meat alternative bacon I've ever had and I've been veggie for nearly 30 years.
Get it at Sainsbury
The best meat free bacon substitute of all. Luckily Sainsbury stock it...
Absolutely great. Felt almost guilty eating it because it tasted so real. Vegetarian for 10 yrs, vegan for 6. So I thought I'd offer my meat eating friend some to try too, to which they said it was believable and ate every bite. Cruelty free and perfect. Thank you Richmonds. Big thumbs up.
Great for what it is - ADD LIQUID SMOKE for 5/5
The psychological appeal: It looks a lot like bacon which already sets this off on a strong foot. The taste: It doesn't taste exactly like bacon, but I add a little extra oil to help it crisp around the edges. I also used liquid smoke and paprika. The texture: It's 80% of the way there, with only the texture of the 'softer' parts of bacon being missing. Will be buying as a regular for those bacon craving days.
Great in fresh bread.
I think Veggy bacon is the 'Holy Grail' of non-meat eaters, and I don't think there's ever going to be a like for like substitute in the same way as some of the burgers you can get nowadays, however, I have to say, this is a pretty good stab. Plenty of taste and the textures no too bad either. I grilled mine and as there's not much fat in it, I sprayed mine liberally with oil. I then got the grill nice and hot and had one of the best meat-free bacon sandwiches I'd had in a long while.
Best Bacon Substitute
This stuff is honestly the best meat-free bacon substitute. It's the first one that i've actually wanted to go back and buy again. I'm really loving Richmonds meat-free range in general.

My friend cooked me a bacon and egg butty with this today, and I was so impressed!! Reminded me a lot of the real thing.
The best for a meat-free BLT!
THE BEST. From an ex-meat-eater, this bacon has satiated my 10 year craving for the perfect BLT replacement. Don't understand the bad reviews - must be overcooking?! Bit of nice olive oil in the pan, keep flipping them over and fry for a few mins max. It gets harder as it cools so bear that in mind not to overdo it!
Like chewing on (very salty) cardboard
Been a vegetarian for a long time, and this has to be THE worst veggie bacon I have ever come across. I tried several changes to the cooking method, i.e. longer versus shorter frying time, medium or low or high heat, normal versus non stick pan, etc. Makes no difference, the result is always the same: absolutely awful. If I chewed on very salty cardboard, I imagine it would taste like the Richmond veggie bacon. Awful stuff.
Sausages yes, bacon no
Sausages are the bomb but these are not even sparklers. Just no flavour – had to smother with ketchup. Shame, c'mon Richmond - we know you're capable of greatness! Back to Vivera for me now
