it was so similar to chicken that I found it hard to eat
I had the same experience with these meat-like products. Sometimes it just mimics and really tastes like the real thing that I had to stop eating ang check out what I'm chewing.
In our country of 110 million, only a fraction of a percentage is vegan/vegetarian/plant-based. So, potentially having millions of people benefit from it is a big win for me.
I totally agree. It is a great tool for people who want to get into veganism, especially those who are just trying to get in on the lifestyle.
