It happened to me this summer and I still feel horrible. The veggie dogs got switched on the grill and they were a new brand, so I didn't notice the difference because I'd never tried them (you know how veggie dogs vary so much). Then my sister bit into my veggie dog, after I'd already eaten an entire one, and I felt like I'd just been hit with a tidal wave. At first I just panicked, then I tried... umm... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/spew.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":spew:"> . I basically had a nervous breakdown. I called my step-mother and she told me about when she accidentally ate a quiche with sausage in it. If anything like this has ever happened to you, tell the story here. Trust me, it feels really good.

Hmmm, I've wondered if any mock meat products taste enough like real meat to not tell them apart.<br><br>
See I've been veg a long time so I've basically forgotten what meat tastes like. Then again when I sometimes eat meat, I get a yucky taste so maybe I havn't all the way.<br><br><br><br>
Now and then I do eat small amounts of meat by mistake (mostly because I bite into something someone told me was vegetarian and is not) . This used to upset me greatly, but then I figured that out in the wild animals' food is comtamined all the time. Plus so is our grain ( rat hair levels anyone?).<br><br>
What I find truly worrisome is that I've gotten accidental meaty bits on so many occasions that food service people or people in general do not take this seriously enough. What may be distastful for me could be dangerious to someone allegic.<br><br><br><br>
Anyways, once I was gulping down this vegetable soup hungerily and it turned out it was a fish soup with veggies...NASTY...I was drinking water for a while to get rid of that taste. But this was hunks of fishy flesh.<br><br>
Now of all meat products, I bet highly processed ones( like hot dogs) are the ones which taste least like real meat.<br><br>
Just like for instance that a soy dog doesn't taste much like a soy bean.<br><br><br><br>
As for eating a whole meaty hot dog by mistake....Yeah I'd feel distrubed by that thought (a bit more meat then just meaty bits) and yet I wonder if someone could fool me or maybe has already and I just didn't know?.

I ordered one of those wraps from Arby's once, and requested that they remove the meat. I think the girl gave me the wrong order, though. Partway through it, I bit into a chunk of bacon. I just unwrapped the wrap, picked out the rest of the bacon, and finished it.

I have accidently eaten a non veggie spring roll. They were supposed to be veggie ones. The worst part about it is not that I ate meat, but that a piece of the spring roll wrapper scratched the lining of my esophagus and I felt like I had something stuck in my throat for days. I actually went to a clinic it was so bad!<br><br><br><br>
Stupid, evil non veggie spring rolls!

Yep, once I was at a japanese noodle house, they only served 3 dishes: Beef curry, chicken curry or Vege curry...I of course chose vege and it was at first delicious...then I scooped out a hunk of brown fleshy stuff (beef) that was resting on the bottom of the bowl...a bit more searching revealed lots of meat in my curry! apparently they just serve it all out of one pan and try to scoop around the meat when someone orders vegetarian! Shocking! Had a few other moments when someone assures me quiche, pizza, etc is vege but not afterall!

There are three instances, which I can recall in 10+ years of vegetarianism, so I suppose that's not so bad. Each of them had an interesting, somewhat <i>positive</i> side effect as well.<br><br><br><br>
The first was ages ago, when I went to a local coffeehouse in Michigan. I asked about the stock in the veg. soup..if it was meat based (I wasn't vegan then). I was told it was vegetarian. When I tasted it, I became pretty sure that the soup contained chicken broth. I asked one of the staff about it, and it was in fact chicken stock. The waitress/staff then came back apologized, and we had a long talk about whether it was hard to be veg., etc. Later (like a few months), she went vegetarian!<br><br><br><br>
Many years later, I went to this bitchin' festival in a town near where my parents live, and through either a direct lie or complete incompetence by a worker, I ate about 1/2 a meat hot dog. I was very upset. I went over and was sitting down, chilling, and saw my (very omnivorous) father go over and confront the person who'd served me the meat. I'd never realized until then, that he actually respected my decision.<br><br><br><br>
The third incident was just a couple of weeks ago when (this time, due to stupidity on my part), I ate some crackers that had prawn in them. I was again upset, but through the events that followed that evening (which are long and personal, heh), I got a bit of a greater understanding of how much my love really cares for me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smitten.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":smitten:">

I've accidently eaten gelatine when it was served to me in a cheesecake. Didn't scar me emotionally, I have to say. Maybe because you can't taste that gelatin is meat.<br><br><br><br>
And I'm not positive, but I think I got a scrap of meat in some noodles I bought a few weeks ago. I bit into something gross and felt sick, anyway, and it seemed like meat. I spat it out and threw it out and was wary eating the rest of the meal, but there was no more in there so I wasn't served meat-containing-noodles, it must have gotton in there by accident.

The other day I accidently ate waffles that had been made with lard. I should've checked the label more closely, but who the hell puts lard in waffles? Seriously! It's no big deal though.. you just have to shrug it off. Mistakes happen and there's no sense in beating yourself up about it.

I have bitten into meat three times.<br><br><br><br>
Each time was at Taco Bell.<br><br><br><br>
It's been around forteen years since I ate ground beef but I know refried beans when I don't taste them.<br><br><br><br>
ETA: I spat it out each time. Now, the rare time I go there, I always do a major buritto inspection to make sure there's no meat or cheese or sour cream.<br><br><br><br>
Cheers!<br><br>

I'm looking forward to the thread, "Taco Bell Burritos: A JeezyCreezy Investigation." Or I get a kick out of thinking about you announcing it to everyone before you do your burrito check (your wife must get sick of that). Out of personal amusement, I'm now going to do that everytime I order from there (which is roughly never). [receives bag of food, opens burrito and says to self "Taco Bell Burritos: a C1 investigation"]<br><br><br><br>
I gratuitously apologize for that bit of tangential idiocy....<br><br><br><br><br><br>
I had a rather unpleasant experience about 3 years ago. I was at Gino's East (a Chicago-style pizza restaurant that serves, not coincidentally, Chicago-style pizza) and ordered a spinach stuffed pizza [note: while I am vegan these days, that Gino's East pizza is the shizznit]. Gino's also makes something called the "Sausage Patty" pizza, which entails a round layer of sausage just under the sauce (for anyone unfamiliar, Chicago-Style pizza is a deep dish pizza which is constructed in this order: crust, cheese, toppings, thick rich tomato sauce on top). Well, thinking my pizza was going to be a tasty stuffed spinach concoction, I bit in and caught a layer of something that, um...didn't quite seem right. After spitting it out, I realized I had just been "sausage patty'd."<br><br><br><br>
Let's just say it wasn't my favorite bite of food of all time. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":sick:">

Many of us have accidentally eaten meat. So many that we have a <a href="http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/showthread.php?t=56028" target="_blank">Slipup Confessional</a> thread just so we can get it off our chests. It happens. Learn from it and move on. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/yes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":yes:"><br><br><br><br>
I've bitten into a pork dumpling and a pork spring roll before thinking they were vegetarian. In both cases I wound up chewing and swallowing the whole bite before I figured out why it seemed odd. What I learned: cut things open before you bite in!

Yeah, two days ago I was at Burger King and just grabbed one of the wrappers. I focused on how the people put nasty mayonnaise on my veggie burger and took the top of the bun off. I then just picked up the burger and bit right into it. 3 chews in I just said outloud "this a veggie burger" and spit it out into my napkin. Oh man was it so gross. Meat does not taste good, I can tell you that.<br><br><br><br>
That was a big reminder that I need to pay more attention when I order a veggie burger and my boyfriend orders a whopper. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

What's wrong with Fanta? I don't drink it.. just curious.<br><br><br><br>
For me, there was the time I ate a bag of Gardettos not knowing what worcestershire sauce was made out of. Just recently, I was eating frosting and noticed beef fat was listed as an ingredient. A couple days later, I ate some salad dressing that had bacon in it. It tasted a little weird, so I glanced at the label. Ick. It really doesn't bother me anymore, I'm just a little more careful about what I eat. Accidents will happen.
