These products wasn't around when I was there, however they did do soya chunks in two flavours beef and chicken, which at the time were popular with vegans and vegetarians, there was a lab producing flavours for these soya products and I remember the man in charge being cock a hoop when they discovered a smoky bacon flavour, though I couldn't then, and still can't understand why vegans and vegetarians would buy vegetable products that resemble and taste of meat.
