The new plant-based meatballs have the same taste and texture as the regular ones but are made with pea protein, oats, potatoes, onion and apples instead of meat.

There are no animal ingredients used in the recipe so it's also an option for vegans.

Frozen bags of the plant balls are available for $6.99 near the cash at stores in Canada.

You can also get them at store restaurants for the same price and they're served with the classic mashed potatoes, broccoli, lingonberries and cream sauce.

IKEA also has other plant-based options like the veggie ball and veggie hot dog.

If you go to IKEA often and have a lot of old furniture from there, you can actually sell it back to the store and get credit.

Justin Trudeau Just Promised To Crack Down On 'Mobs' Protesting In Health Care Settings

If elected, he says the Liberals would move to criminalize blocking health care buildings.

With anti-vaccine protests taking place all over the country on September 13, the federal leaders have finally weighed in and Justin Trudeau is not holding back.

"The Liberal Party of Canada, if reelected to form government, will make it a criminal offence to block access to buildings that provide health care," said Trudeau while in Vancouver on September 13.
