I knew there was a reason I didn’t watch broadcast TV...

I love the black woman who goes "Excuse Me?" when they tell her it's "plant based".

I think she may have thrown it at them off camera. Big Grin

It might be petty good with a couple slices of open flame broiled Spam on it.

It may actually taste pretty good. If it lowers the cost to the consumer, even better.

What concerns me is how much soy it probably has in it. However, there will probably be a study next week that will make soy a super food.

Calorie count isn't significantly better. Probably because they put fat in it for flavor.

instead of all the chemicals, food coloring and artificial flavoring required to make soy look and taste like beef, I think I'll prefer the all natural, beef option...

I agree 100%, beef that is!

I went and got one the other day just to try it out. I probably wouldn't know it wasn't a regular whopper in a blind taste test if you didn't tell me, but I think Burger King has the worst burgers of all the fast food places so that's not saying much.

The texture and flavor are actually pretty decent. It did seem to have a little bit of a weird aftertaste, but that may have had more to do with it being from Burger King than being a meatless patty. I've had an impossible burger once before and I don't remember it having that aftertaste. I'm sure it would be more obvious that it isn't meat if you were eating the patty by itself, but when you cover it with enough fast food burger toppings it's going to taste like a fast food burger regardless of what it is.

The cons are the price and the nutrition. It's actually more expensive than a regular whopper, and not any healthier. Most of the nutrition is close, and sodium is actually higher if that matters to you. That rules out basically all of the non feel-good reasons for ordering one.

Bottom line is that I would eat it again if someone gave it to me, but I certainly wouldn't pay for one.

"Odd," said Arthur, "I thought you said it was a democracy."
"I did," said Ford, "it is."
"So," said Arthur, hoping he wasn't sounding ridiculously obtuse, "why don't the people get rid of the lizards?"
"It honestly doesn't occur to them. They've all got the vote, so they all pretty much assume that the government they've voted in more or less approximates the government they want."
"You mean they actually vote for the lizards."
"Oh yes," said Ford with a shrug, "of course."
"But," said Arthur, going for the big one again, "why?"
"Because if they didn't vote for a lizard, then the wrong lizard might get in."

And the salt content - 1,080mg
Fat - 34g
Sugar - 12g

How to make it taste better - load it up with salt, fat and sugar.

Costs more, calorie difference is nill, higher sodium, sugar, and mostly soy with all its bad attributes.

Sounds like cows are still doomed.

I'd like to see them feed a real whopper to a bunch of vegans/vegetarians and then do the big reveal: 'You thought it was impossible but we did it! This vegetable burger is made of.....beef!'

Hilarity and lawsuits would ensue no doubt.
