Do you ever eat veggie burgers?
They can be a bit hit and miss, but the ones which are HIT can be really yummy. My other half isn't veggie and he likes the Linda Mcartney burgers as much as real burgers, and they are really low in saturated fat as well as having no GMO or worries about steroids ect. He really doesn't like the Quorn ones or own brand ones.
We have the veggie burgers with blue cheese, lettuce and mushrooms in nice soft white buns and I serve them for my friends when they come over too.
Alas, we do not have such things as Veggie Burgers here, well not in my town we don't, maybe Barcelona might have such luxuries but here, not a chance.
Honestly you can go to 10 restaurants and ask for their Vegetarian option and they look at you and just give you the green peppers with the meat scraped off.
I actually used to quite like the Linda McCartney burgers and sausages and whilst I would never have the will power to give up my meat fixes I could see myself buying them rather than risk eating meat I would rather not partake of. Of course this is rather a moot point however, due to my not being in the UK.
I would throw a big time Chatty fit. Misleading people about a consumed product is irresponsible. And putting it in the fine print on the side of a box does not count. Here in the states it is a given that a hamburger or beef burger is made from beef. If a distributed is going to use pork, veal, horse etc then it should be marketed as a pork, veal, or equine burger. False advertising is wrong. When I was a kid, I was told the stew was beef stew only to find out it was deer stew. It tasted wrong to me to begin with, but once I knew I became sick to my stomach.

Thing is, they are labelled as being BEEF, and what is worse some of the items have not simply been laced with another meat, rather they have been found to be made from 100% horsemeat.
As for Venison stew, it is somewhat a strong flavour so I am not surprised you thought it tasted wrong.
When I was growing up we ate Venison (not because we were rich but because it was actually cheaper at that time than beef, go figure) my mum used to call it 'Robin Hood Meat'. Which for some reason made it really cool.
Rabbit was 'Special Chicken'. I didnt think it was that special, but ate it due to not having much choice.
However, now I do and so don't
I have eaten Kangaroo, Ostrich and Crocodile, Gazelle, all of which I have enjoyed due to the novelty, however, these were labelled as being Kangaroo, Ostrich, Crocodile, Gazelle and not labelled as being Beef.
