    Think outside the Box... Grasshopper.

    Pick up burger, toss the South End of the bun in the toilet and have a burger with half the carbs...

    The bigger question is: "Why didn't the guy place the burger on top of the fries? Is he worried about getting ketchup on it...?"

    Good point.

    The good stuff like the onions, cheese, pickles, ketchup is always on top anyways.

    Not sure why anyone cares. If they want to pander to the veggie people, let them. They're a business, and it's probably a smart move. Will I eat one? No. But I couldn't care less if they want to slap it on their menu.

    It's fine. Don't want it, don't eat it. My wife orders the Wahlburgers version and it tastes... like a burger.

    Vegetarian is the diet that food eats.

    Only problem is that these new veggie Whoopers are cooked on the same flame broil conveyor belt that the meat burgers are cooked on. So BK has a small disclaimer that there "may" be small traces of meat in the veggie burger.

    UH OH. All those vegans just had their brains exploded......

    That's what I was reading. It's not a more "health friendly" option to the whopper, if either were even mentioned in the same sentence as healthy. Instead, its just an option to not eat an animal product. FWIW, I've had friends who have had one out of curiosity and they report that it is remarkably tasty.

    I used to work in an office building that shared a cafeteria with another company. That company was a call center and was heavy on Indians, who were largely vegetarian. I was talking to the grill cook one day, and he bragging that the Indians all "loved his veggie burgers". He told me his secret, he cooked them in bacon grease. I laughed hysterically, and he was too dumb to know why.

    I had one, tastes slightly different than a regular one. Slightly more "spicy" flavor. Not bad at all. Much prefer BK to McD's.

    Please. We eat so much crap from preservatives to antibiotics, chemicals, etc. in everything we eat that mixing in a veggie burger instead of red meat once in a while isn't any more likely to cause you to grow tits than anything else we eat. I doubt the "impossible" burger is any healthier (and they don't claim it to be) but I also doubt there's anything in it that's any more harmful than the "meat" you'd normally get in a whopper. I like a lot of variety in my diet so that I'm not getting too much of the bad stuff that's in any one thing (except for beer... and chocolate... if there's a lot of estrogen in beer or chocolate I'd better go bra shopping).

    Sure. They are trying to condition people to realize that bugs have far more protein per lb than beef and are possibly healthier for us.

    Now, do I want a grasshopper-burger?? HELL NO! But veggie and bug burgers ARE more environmentally conscious choices. And some people are looking for that.

    Will this be a big hit? I see this turning into the McDLT or the Mcsomething Deluxe of the 80's. People aren't flocking to BK or McD for odd alternatives.

    I feed my cows regular burgers all the time and they seem just fine.

    I just tried the Impossible Burger of the weekend. Not from BK, but we bought some at the Shaws in Groton. Took it home and threw it on the grill and added some cheese.

    In the grand scheme of things, it doesn't suck that bad. Yes...you can tell it is not beef, but it is also FAR better than the shit they sold in the 70s/80s. Better than the Morning Star stuff. If I were forced to go vegetarian, this would be a pretty decent substitute for a burger.

    NOTE: I'm a fat guy who loves steak and hamburgers so this should mean something to people. :)
