Cultured meat, like meat substitutes, is too expensive for most people now even if food neophobia weren't a factor (and the stuff looked, smelled and tasted just like the regular article).

Dry textured vegetable protein, bought from a bulk bin, is cheaper than all but the lowest grade of hamburger meat. Likewise bulk tofu.

Which is irrelevant if most people won't eat it, because it doesn't look, smell or taste anything like meat. We're talking about direct meat replacements, not substitutions of something completely different. Otherwise, we would all be vegans.

Trying to equate eating whales with eating pigs has problems as an argument, but it isn't off-topic. Talking about meat substitutes in this context is a bit OT, but not all that much.

I lived in Japan for 3 and a half years and tried whale meat. I didn't think it was that good.
I don't see the point of it all.

Deer hunting is hugely popular in North America, despite the fact that venison tastes terrible.

Taste is entirely personal so your claim is overbroad, and while I've never eaten it and don't intend to (eat Bambi or Bambi's mom? Never!), IIRR venison is about the lowest fat meat around. See https://www.nutritionadvance.com/types-of-meat/

Venison jerky and sausage is actually quite good, IMO. Tried it as a steak and meh.

You have no idea what I know. I was raised in a deer hunting family, in a deer hunting region. I ate venison about as many times I could stand as a kid, from deer steaks to a stew the local Italians call (spelling approximate) "sufreto," made from the internal organs. I wasn't a vegetarian until I was 18. Ironically, it was because my father accused me of hypocrisy for not liking hunting but still eating meat, that I became one.
