Burger King drops Impossible Whopper across US restaurants
The Impossible Whopper will be available for a limited time on August 8.
'MURICA — Burger King has dropped the plant-based Impossible Whopper burger throughout its stores across the Good 'Ol U.S. of A.
According to Today, B.K. announced last week that its meatless option would be available 'Murica-wide starting today.
According to FoodBev, the burger is made from meat-free patties pumped out by California-based Impossible Food. It will be offered for a limited time starting this week.
The Impossible Whopper features a flame-grilled plant patty with tomatoes, onions, lettuce, mayonnaise, ketchup and pickles on a toasted sesame seed bun.
Unfortunately, for vegans and vegetarians, the Impossible Whopper may be impossible for them to eat as the Impossible patties will be cooked on the same broiler used for beef and chicken.
Another thing that annoys vegans is that the Impossible Whopper has mayo, which is made with eggs.
So for people who eat normally, that's an added bonus—eating a plant-based burger and getting to annoy ultra-annoying vegans.
But if you're looking to shed some pounds, the Impossible Whopper may not be the way to go as it contains nearly the same amount of calories as a regular Whopper and actually has more carbs and sodium than the meaty option.
Either way, introducing a plant-based burger option to the U.S. is a step in the right direction.
