Default Impossible burger, whos tried it?

So I went to White Castle last night and my one buddies has been raving about the Impossible Slider and while I usually just gorge on chicken ring sandwiches, I decided to try one. They are 1.99 vs under a dollar regular sliders and they take longer to cook.

But I'll get right to it...the Impossible Slider is fantastic and I'm shocked to be saying that. I'm eager to try the Impossible Whopper when it finally hits BK nationwide.

I am reading, however, that there is already a big time shortage of this "meat" so its likely going to be awhile before this becomes mainstream.

Fantastic is a strong word, probably too strong.. But I was also really surprised by how good it was.

I will!

Seriously, growing up with companies like Dow dumping new products on the market, only to recall them decades later after long term testing showed bad things, colors my way of thinking.

The last thing I want to eat is something that is mimicking meat in any way

Sooner or later, we will have 3D printed (or whatever scifi method they use) meat that is exactly like real animals.

If I'm still around, I'd try some Japanese Kobe beef that's made on a printer.

As long as it's made from all natural ingredients and not "constructed", it might be OK.

You know they can already grow meat in a lab right?

I really like their fries, and I've probably mentioned this before to @Mook's disgust, but for some reason I only like the frozen ones you can get and microwave. Why?? I have no idea.

I want a Kobe steak that is exactly the same as if I was in Japan paying $400 for it. I don't think they can grow that yet.

i had a bit of a date's, just the patty. i was surprised and really impressed.

i was at a burger place in the city (forgot which) but they had a beyond burger, not the impossible. similar but a competitor. i had the whole burger.

not sure if it took longer to cook than a regular burger, it took a bit. it was good, although being alone almost seemed better than part of the sandwich, like my brain still knew something was a bit different. not really a bad different though, just different. enjoyed, wouldn't mind ordering again.

here's the thing though - i was hoping it would be a lot healthier too. although that is super debatable. it's not an obvious win there, unfortunately.

A few months ago when Burger King announced that they were going to offer the impossible burger there was a news special on them. They talked about what makes a burger taste like a burger. Down to the molecules. They showed how they searched for plants that could match it these specific requirements. Then how they played to get the texture, look, smell, and so on. It was interesting to watch.

Then the program had a few people taste test a normal Whopper and an impossible version of it. Everyone was surprised by how much it tasted like a beef burger. Even how the juices came out of it when you bite into it.

I have to say I was interested in trying one. But have yet to do so.

LOL at the “meat” comment.


I’ve tried it. It’s pretty good. I’d get it again. And the chicken rings are my favorite.

Also, fast food isn’t that fast anymore. Lol.

i'm interested in trying the whopper one for sure, as it's such a familiar burger to me already!

I was surprised by how much saturated fat was in just the patty, and, of course, it takes a ton of salt to make that shit taste good so sodium is high too. More than a McD's quarter-pounder beef patty, and the same number of calories.
