UK: Marks & Spencer stop selling 'cauliflower steak'

The ‘cauliflower steak’ was part of the new M&S Veggie range and after an introductory offer it would have cost £2.50. The range was aimed at customers wanting a "quick and convenient vegetarian meal option", M&S told BBC Three.

But now Marks and Spencer says it will stop selling its ‘steak’ after shoppers mocked the product. 

The veggie steak - consisting of two slices of cauliflower and a lemon and herb drizzle - was being sold for £2. Customers, however, argued a whole cauliflower could be bought for £1 in its shops and also raised concerns about excess packaging.
