On April Fool’s Day, 2019, a Burger King in St. Louis asked its very carnivorous customers to test out a new version of their iconic burger The Whopper. Without telling them, Burger King substituted in Impossible patty for the beef. The customers could not believe that this new “Impossible Whopper” was completely plant-based and meat-free. One person even stated “That’s impossible. It tastes just like a Whopper should”.
Starting this week, 59 exclusive Burger King restaurants in and around St. Louis will be testing the Impossible Whopper — a flame-grilled, plant-based patty topped with freshly sliced tomatoes, fresh lettuce, creamy mayonnaise, ketchup, crunchy pickles, and sliced white onions on a toasted sesame seed bun.
The Impossible Whopper is, “All Whopper. No beef.” It’s as juicy, craveable and delicious as the original Whopper. The limited-time offer makes Burger King restaurants the first coast-to-coast quick-service restaurant to serve the award-winning, plant-based meat from food startup Impossible Foods, maker of the Impossible Burger.
