    Burger King’s ‘Impossible’ Whopper Has No Beef

    Burger King has no Burger in their burger and Clara Peller is asking "Where's the Beef"? From her grave!

    Impossible Whopper — a vegetarian version of their flagship sandwich at outlets nationwide by the end of the year.

    The new veg-friendly option uses a patty from Impossible Foods, a California-based startup that develops plant-based alternatives for meat. Despite the switcheroo and new green paper wrapper, Burger King wants consumers to know that the sandwich is still 100 percent Whopper, despite the lack of beef.

    With all these plant and insect based alternative food products that we seem to be hearing about on a weekly basis, does anyone else have a nagging feeling that the powers that be are trying to condition us for something?

    Know beef. Love beef. Eat beef.

    I was unaware their burgers contained any significant amount of beef in the first place.

    I have no interest in them (not big on BK anyways), but from what I've read, those burgers aren't that bad and
    are remarkably close to tasting like a real beef burger (they even have bloody colored juice).

    I might even try one out of curiosity.

    But it still has the fat of the original Whopper

    The original Whopper clocks in at 660 calories (more than half of them coming from fat), 40 grams of fat, and 28 grams of protein. The Impossible Whopper comes in at 630 calories (again, half from fat), 34 grams of fat, and 25 grams of protein.

    I might add Where's the Healthiness?

    My wife is a vegetarian, for over 20 years. Ive taken her to try the Impossible Whopper at a location in NY. She liked it. I found it no more disgusting than a regular whopper. Would I go out of my way to get one? No, but it's a nice option for my wife and other non-meateaters.

    I don't eat a lot of red meat... tried one yesterday and honestly couldn't tell the difference between it and the regular whopper that I might eat once a year.

    I tried one, if you want to enjoy your burger for an hour or more after you eat it, then I recommend it. I could still taste the unpleasant aftertaste for an hour

    I'll stick to buying some beef, going to a meat grinder, then making my own patties and grilling myself

    I've never seen any place where a Burger King was that there wasn't at least four other choices of places to eat.

    I solved the whole problem a long time ago, I eat at home. If I'm going to be on the road, I pack a cooler with food amd drinks. The only thing fast food places are good for is a place to stop and take a piss, they usually keep their bathrooms cleaner than the tables people eat at.

    I’d try one. Every once in a while I like veggie burgers, and I’m the guy who stocks up on beef jerky before heading to India.

    f*** that shit ... f*** THAT SHIT

    they are basically selling soy shit that they fed to rats and rats were ok with it, so it must be safe. None of these f***s will be ordering this at some fancy place. This is the grub for proles, to reduce carbon emissions.

    You homos realize that soy is plant estrogen ... just so you know that your man tits are not growing from AR shooting (for the most part)

    I have a similar meat grinder which was old when my grandmother came across the pond from England 107 years ago. I ground pork, beef and clams (I'd dug) with it in all through the 70's at her request, and when my mother downsized to move to FL, it came into my possession along with her old school Presto pressure cooker. I can still remember walking into a butcher shop and asking for 1.5 pounds of stew meat to grind and make burgers.

    My son has already called dibs on it.

    I love it when great minds think alike. [banana]

    I'd pass on the burger, but the fries and water should still be good to go.

    Am I right?
