“Where do vegetarians go on holiday?"/"Quornwall.”

"Quornwall” is a jocular portmanteau word that combines “Quorn” (a meat substitute popular in the UK) and “Cornwall” (a county in the UK). “I also spelt ‘Cornwall’ like ‘Quornwall’ #thebest” was posted on Twitter on April 25, 2012. “Where do vegetarians go on their holidays? Quornwall!  #joke” was posted on Twitter by Focus Management on July 19, 2012.

“If you prefer a holiday substitute to a real holiday, you might like to try Quornwall” was posted on Twitter by Mat on June 7, 2013. “You can buy vegetarian pasties in Quornwall” was posted on Twitter by Pundamentalism on December 29, 2014.


Wikipedia: Quorn
Quorn is a meat substitute product originating in the UK and available in 19 countries. It was launched in 1985 by Marlow Foods, a joint venture between Rank Hovis McDougall (RHM) and Imperial Chemical Industries (ICI) and now owned by Monde Nissin Corporation. All Quorn foods contain mycoprotein as an ingredient, which is derived from the Fusarium venenatum fungus and is grown by fermentation using a process that its manufacturer has described as similar to the production of beer or yogurt. It is sold primarily in Europe, but also in other parts of the world. Quorn is sold as both a cooking ingredient and as the meat substitute used in a range of prepackaged meals.

Wikipedia: Cornwall
Cornwall (/ˈkɔːrnwɔːl, -wəl/; Cornish: Kernow [ˈkɛrnɔʊ]) is a county in South West England in the United Kingdom. The county is bordered to the north and west by the Celtic Sea, to the south by the English Channel, and to the east by the county of Devon, over the River Tamar which forms most of the border between them. Cornwall forms the westernmost part of the South West Peninsula of the island of Great Britain.
