At the beginning of April, it was announced that Burger King was testing out the new Impossible Whopper made with an Impossible Burger patty in its St. Louis, Missouri market. Now after a very successful month, it will be rolled out into additional markets shortly and available nationwide by the end of 2019.
Since being added to the menu at 58 restaurants in St. Louis, the Impossible Whopper has been a hit with numerous happy eaters sharing shots of the juicy-looking option on social media. It’s not just herbivores who are impressed by the quality of the Impossible Whopper, though. In one review, Missouri meat lobbyist Eric Bohl said the difference between the vegan version and the original was so small that the meat industry should be worried.
“It’s 95 percent of the way there, and the recipe is likely to only get better,” he wrote. “Farmers and ranchers need to take notice and get ready to compete. I’ve tasted it with my own mouth, and this fake meat is ready for prime time.
This burger is ready for prime time, indeed. And now it won’t be long before you can get your hands on one anywhere in the country.
