The very best veggie burger
According to ConsumerReports.org, this honor goes to MorningStar Farms Garden which, at $1.07, is actually a penny cheaper than the second-place burger. They say it is "Combo of meatlike and grainlike. Thin, crispy, moist, flavorful."
The worst veggie burgers of all
Now, ConsumerReports.org ranged these as "good," so, while these are at the end of the list, it is a list that does not drop below good. Meaning, these aren't that bad!
Second to last on the list is Franklin Farms Portabella Fresh. It is cheap, at only $1.00, but while it is "Meatlike," it is also "Crumbly, smoky, a bit spongy."
And last on the list is Lightlife Meatless Light. At $1.48, it is the most expensive veggie burger, but while it is also "Meatlike," they say it is "Dry, dense, a bit rubbery, little flavor."
