Burger King Fools Customers iWith A New Meat-Free ‘Impossible Whopper’

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.

Reese’s Announces Limited-Time Chocolate Lovers & Peanut Butter Lovers Cups

Reese’s is giving candy fans the chance to have more of what they love with the new limited-time Reese’s Lovers Cups. The two new cups — “Chocolate Lovers” and “Peanut Butter Lovers” — will be available nationwide beginning in mid-April.

The Lovers Cups give candy fans choice between enjoying more peanut butter or more chocolate.

The new Reese’s Peanut Butter Lovers will literally have a peanut butter candy top shell, and the new Reese’s Chocolate Lovers is more chocolate than we’ve ever packed into a Reese’s Cup,” according to Hershey’s.

The Chocolate Lovers cup has a much higher proportion of richer milk chocolate and a thicker shell surrounding the peanut butter. The Peanut Butter Lovers, which looks truly unique, contains more peanut butter inside, a thinner chocolate shell and is topped with a peanut buttery coating.

The Lovers cups come in both regular and king-size sleeves.

To launch the new Lovers Cups, Reese’s will open a “Reese’s Swap Shop” in New York City from March 26 to March 27. Reese’s fans can swap any beloved item (old skates, a toaster, even a stuffed animal) for a Reese’s Chocolate Lovers or Peanut Butter Lovers cup.

LG SnowWhite Ice Cream Maker Prototype

At SXSW, LG is showcasing a prototype personal ice cream maker, SnowWhite. 

Using specialized capsules that create delicious flavors and creamy textures, anyone will be able to make frozen delights to satisfy various preferences – from traditional ice creams to sorbets to gelatos, even frozen yogurts.

The system is mix-and-match. Two capsules are combined: one for the flavor, and one for the type of dessert. That means that SnowWhite can also create things like frozen custard and granita, along with sherbet. At the end, a cleaning pod can be used to wash the whole system through, ready for the next batch.

Think of it as a Keurig for ice cream. No word yet on future availability or pricing.

KFC Hires RoboCop to Protect Their Secret Recipe 

Kentucky Fried Chicken revealed today its newest Colonel Sanders – Colonel RoboCop – and disclosed its latest and most enhanced security measure taken to date to protect and preserve its founder’s secret blend of 11 herbs and spices used to make its world famous Original Recipe chicken. Colonel RoboCop isn’t just tasked with being the latest face of KFC’s famous fried chicken; he was also commissioned to successfully transport an encrypted copy of the secret recipe to one of the most secure vaults in the world –  the Bahnhof maximum security nuclear bunker located in Stockholm, Sweden.

Invented by KFC Founder Colonel Harland Sanders, and perfected in 1940 after years of experimentation, the finger lickin’ good secret recipe, which blends the iconic 11 herbs and spices, is the crown jewel upon which the company was born, and is still enjoyed today in more than 22,000 restaurants across 135+ countries around the world. While the original secret recipe is still housed at the KFC headquarters, a second, triple-encrypted digital copy was created, transported and is now stored at Bahnhof’s data center, a former nuclear bunker named Pionen, to ensure the delicious national treasure lives on forever, should anything ever happen to the original. Between Colonel RoboCop and Bahnhof, KFC has left no stone unturned in its efforts to safeguard the Colonel’s legacy.  

KFC’s secret recipe is arguably the world’s best kept trade secret. Since 1970, the original secret recipe of 11 herbs and spices has been carefully guarded at KFC headquarters in a state-of-the-art vault surrounded by motion detectors, cameras and more. In fact, the recipe is so highly guarded, even KFC’s president and head chef do not know the exact recipe. Most dramatically, KFC employs two different suppliers, each producing approximately half of the herbs and spices blend, which are then blended together by a third supplier – making it impossible for any one supplier to produce the exact mix of 11 herbs and spices.

In addition to his role transporting and protecting the secret recipe, starting February 24 Colonel RoboCop will appear in a series of ads promoting KFC’s four varieties of its famous $20 Fill Up and its $5 Fill Up offers featuring all white meat chicken.
