    Why are you equating veganism with the anti-science and anti-rational organic movement? The last thing vegans should do is support industrial organic. Organic agriculture kills vast numbers of intertidal oil fish solely for fertilizer. Literally trillions of these endangered fish have experienced excruciatingly painful deaths to unnecessarily grow organic plant foods! It’s barbaric and it really angers me that most so-called animal rights “ethical” vegans do not give a fuck.

    And finally, you sir, are a good example of a dry vegan (e.g. someone who apparently eats a vegan diet but enjoys harming animals.

    PS: people are animals too.

      Thanks for reading my post? My main language is English but I’ll try my best to follow you anyway. I am not equating veganism with the organic movement, and if you think I am, then you are seeing something you want to see that isn’t there. I am not “supporting industrial organic” either. It’s bizarre that you would draw that conclusion. You’re not the first vegan to reply to my investigation by taking the opinion that vegans should be able to get away with misleading behavior simply because they’re vegan. Sorry, but I don’t subscribe to that viewpoint. I think that if someone believes in organic food and wants to only eat organic — NOT ME; I’M NOT THAT PERSON — then it’s wrong for a restaurant to tell them its food is organic when it isn’t. That seems like pretty basic human ethics to me. And if you think it’s okay to mislead the people who want to eat organic, then you don’t care about animals because people are animals too, if you didn’t know! It seems to me that you yourself are a dirty vegan. Wait, a day vegan? Wait, a cry vegan? Wait, what was that moronic term that makes no sense that you came up with while you were sitting on the toilet?

      People are not animals and animal are not people. If you think otherwise you are a huge idiot and incredibly misguided in your thoughts.

    I’m SO disappointed in Veggie Grill — their marketing angle is impressive, I’ll give them that. MOST people don’t read past the brightly colored menu. I usually do, but I was sucked in (maybe I didnt want to know!). Have you read the ingredients in their chocolate chip cookie?? Pure POISON!!! If you have an emailing list, I’d be happy to receive emails from you.

    I know this post is old, like well over a year old, but I just discovered it and I felt really thankful to you for writing it! I worked for VG like a year ago and it was a horrible experience, I was an assistant manager. I got shuffled between several store locations across town because they were always understaffed, I was underpaid and over worked, my manager undermined me in front of staff, and was very mentally abusive to say the least. I could go on forever, it wasn’t good. I felt guilty for wanting to leave, so I stayed as long as I could, mostly because I’m passionate about being vegan and I loved the staff and customers, but that’s exactly what they feed on, there was lots of promise of one day getting promoted to manager and having my own store, but I bet you can guess what happened there… Yeah never happened. Also they would have specific verbiage that we were required to know when talking to customers… Example; we couldn’t say the word “vegan” when referencing the food or pretty much anything about the restaurant, we had to say “plant based”, but a majority of their customer base was vegan, and we held a lot of vegan/animal rights type fundraisers… They don’t give a shit about veganism, or animals, or human rights for that matter, they’re just trying to capitalize on Veganism, probably because they see it as growing market…

    Yuck, wheat, canola oil and soybeans? No thanks. – I don’t care if they are organic or not, all those things are bad for you! I wrote them about Quorn mycoprotein options in the marketplace that are solid in taste and texture and not soy containing – no word.

    I’d love to know if Veggie Grill ever made an official public apology or what kind of response this elicited? I’m a huge fan for Veggie Grill and hope they continue to grow nationally and internationally, but this truly concerns me.
