"I see lots of products like this on the market and I have to wonder... if you're eating a vegan diet not just because its healthier, but to save animals etc etc... then why would you want to still taste what animal-based food tastes like? "I love animals and want to keep them from being eaten, but I still want enjoy how they taste" isn`t that being a huge hypocrite?"
Most kids, like myself, grow up in a carnivorousness household. People get conditioned to like different foods. How many people do you know of that did not like the taste of beer at first, but later on drink it like water? I know many. When I decided to not eat flesh anymore, certain foods that I had been conditioned to like were difficult to no longer consume. So I bought veggie burgers and veggie spicy chicken patties. The first year those type products helped me re-condition my taste buds.
So, no, it has nothing to do with hypocracy and everything to do with the psychological aspe

No, doing that and still eating the animals is being a hypocrite. Being a hypocrite is going against something you believe, if you believe that you shouldn`t eat animals, then eating a meat substitute with no animal in it is perfectly fine.
Those are some dodgy looking.....things, stuff I get looks and probably tastes a lot better.
