Burger King takes its Whopper sandwich for a walk on the wild side by announcing the chain is testing a new plant-based version of their most recognized menu item.
Starting today, Monday, April 1, 2019 (yes, on April Fool’s Day of all days) the meatless Impossible Whopper is being flame-grilled for a limited-time at 59 exclusive Burger King locations in and around the St. Louis area.
The Impossible Whopper features a flame-grilled, plant-based patty topped with sliced tomato, lettuce, mayo, ketchup, pickles, and sliced white onions on a toasted sesame seed bun.
The limited-time offering makes Burger King the first coast-to-coast fast food restaurant to serve the plant-based meat from Impossible Foods, the maker of the Impossible Burger.
Impossible Whopper Surprise
In advance of the official Impossible Whopper test, Burger King surprised some unsuspecting loyal fans by serving them the Impossible Burger instead of the classic Whopper. The brand filmed their reactions, which you can check out in video below.
