Smoky bacon crisps are to contain real bacon as part of an experiment by manufacturer Walkers.  

Real chicken is also to be used in its roast chicken flavour packets while cheese powder is to go into cheese and onion crisps, it was reported.

However the move has upset some vegetarians who had become accustomed to eating meat-flavoured snacks safe in the knowledge that they did not actually contain any meat, according to The Independent.

I guess some people are vegetarian because of a love for animals, but still love the taste of bacon??  I know my sister was vegetarian for 4 years in her late teens and gave it all up one morning when my dad was making bacon butties!

Oh nooooo........ Not more offended people,now we have gone to far!Real ingredients?How absurd this must be stopped and the makers of this product must be punished!!!

"If it is not advantageous,do not move.If objectives can not be attained,do not employ the army.Unless endangered do not engage in warfare.The ruler cannot mobilize the army out of personal anger.The general can not engage in battle because of personal frustration.When it is advantageous,move;when not advantageous,stop.Anger can revert to happiness,annoyance can revert to joy,but a vanquished state cannot be revived,the dead cannot be brought back to life."

Well darn, now they won't be able to say "Suitable for vegetarians" on the packet, something that's always amused me.

If, as it seems, we are in the process of becoming a totalitarian society in which the state apparatus is all-powerful, the ethics most important for the survival of the true, free, human individual would be: cheat, lie, evade, fake it, be elsewhere, forge documents, build improved electronic gadgets in your garage that’ll outwit the gadgets used by the authorities.

heh, how bout they put a label "made with real meat" on the bag and people can take a moment to read before eating it?

Your ad hominem connotes your sciolism. Now that is some funny commentary.

I guess we should be grateful they stopped doing flavours like:
  • Hedghog
  • Cajun Squirrel
  • Farmer Browns
When this kind of thing happens?
