Burger King will be releasing their “Impossible Whopper” – a vegan version of its signature burger across the nation very soon.
The fast-food giant tested the new burger in St. Louis at the beginning of April and according to Burger King spokesperson, it went “exceedingly well.”
The Impossible Whopper, a plant-based patty made from “impossible foods”(hence the name), is supposed to taste just like Burger King’s regular Whopper. Unlike veggie burgers, Impossible Burger patties are designed to mimic the look and texture of meat when cooked.
The plant protein startup recently revealed a new recipe, designed to look and taste even more like meat and that version is what is being used in Burger King’s Impossible Whoppers.
The company plans to expand to more markets “in the very near future” before making the sandwich available nationally by the end of the year.
