Thanks to Orange Hitler and his trade war, the Chinese stopped buying most of our soybeans and started buying them from Brazil.  Tofu only costs $2-3 for a 16oz slab in the first place.

This isn't surprising at all. Thanks to Dumph.

When is there going to be a quinoa inflation, now that eating that crap has passed its fad phase?

At the beginning of the pandemic last year, we couldn't keep tofu in stock at work. Meats, tofu, eggs, and milk were the top protein sources we kept selling out of fairly quickly. Plant-based "meat"  didn't ever really sell out in my area (sells well, though), but the tofu, man. When it arrived on the truck and we stocked it, it was sold out by the end of the day. Super cheap protein source that's easy to make tasty.

Also, it stores very well. The little carton packs don't really even need a fridge until opened.

came in here for both of ^^^these ^^^things. once stores sold mostly out of meats, 'Muricans were oddly enough hoarding tofu.

and yeah, farmers getting farking literally billions of dollars to not-grow soy weren't exactly helping either.

mostly-unrelated, but my most recent tofu experience was... disappointing at best. and I love the stuff. sure, it looks good, but dear lord was it ever the least-textured unpleasant nonsense. sauce was ok. that pea-avocado mash and tahine were nice.

Damn, and I was so looking forward to going vegetarian.

Guess I'll stick with meat!

(Had like one of the best burgers at a restaurant I have ever had yesterday. I thought all the signage "as seen on the food network" was a gimmick. No it really is a damn good burger.)

I'd... *snrk*... I mean, simply seeing signs like that would have likely made me turn right around?

but then I am a cynical irascible bastidge. I'm non-/s glad you persevered and found a tasty new boiga.

Oh no I'm with you, I kinda wanted to  scream and run away. But it was right next door to the jobsite and I just followed the group. It was worth it.

Though them saying "waygu beef" was definitely wrong, place had one hell of a burger. If I end up back on that site I'll totally go back.

Bacon was perfect, burger I felt could be a little rarer, fried egg my only problem. Was frying the yolk and not runny yolk, but texture and taste? Oh hell yeah.

And by "Dumph" you mean dumping borrowed "stimulus" money into the system to the tune of 25%, right?
