The Impossible Burger

Burger King will sell its Impossible Whopper later this year. The patty's made of soy and has beef-like texture. The comments reviewers made so far sound like "I can tell it's not real meat" or "If you didn't tell me, I would've thought it was the real thing." I'm curious!

I would like to try it. I'm not sure I wanna try it enough to drive two hours for it, but we'll see.

I want to try this and compare it to beef. I tried burgers made with ground turkey, mostly veggies, and mostly nuts, and they all tasted okay but left that "something is missing" feeling afterwards.

If Burger King is willing to offer such kind of burgers, then I guess the taste closely resembles the real meat. However, if I wanted a burger, then I will want to eat the real one and not the fake one.

I might try it. I shouldn't eat red meat so this might actually work for me.

On the topic of BK, I thought I read that they were on the verge of bankruptcy.

From what I read, only a few restaurants filed for bankruptcy and not the whole food chain. The move to offer burgers with vegetable-based patty might be a way to attract new customers.

I'm curious about this non-flesh patty, although I've seen a few local restaurants offering meat alternatives in their menu. The alternatives were mostly mushrooms, but they don't really have the same taste like the real meat.

Shake Shack's mushroom burger tastes so much better than what I expected. The patty's a fried portobello full of cheese and — you can imagine — has more calories than their regular beef and cheeseburgers.
