Has anyone else heard about or seen chain restaurant Red Robin's video advertisement for their new veggie burger?
Here's a link to a news article about it: "Red Robin's Garden Burger Ad Says Vegetarians Are Like Teen Girls 'Going Through A Phase'"
What do you think? Is it patronizing to vegetarians/vegans, or should we be grateful that they could be bothered to add a veggie burger to their menu?
Not that I was planning to travel to Long Island or New Jersey just to eat at a chain restaurant anyway... and from the brief look I got at that burger in the advertisement, I imagine it's nothing that I can't buy in the frozen food section of the grocery store... but I do find it disheartening that a national chain seems to think vegetarianism is nothing more than teenage angst and rebellion. Talk about missing the point entirely! For the record, Red Robin, I think my decade of eating veggie burgers qualifies as more than a "phase" by now, don't you agree?
By the way - I am one veggie burger review away from my 100th VEGGIE BURGER REVIEW!
Wow, I can't believe I've eaten that many veggie burgers for the blog by now! I've got a great review coming up tomorrow to mark this special occasion.
