I'm a meat-eater, and I tried the new Impossible Whopper from Burger King - here's my verdict
- I just tried the new Impossible Whopper from Burger King out of curiosity, and I thought it was pretty good! It's better than a standard veggie burger overall.
- The Impossible Whopper is made in partnership with Impossible Foods, a company focused on making plant-based meat alternatives.
- Whopper and meat fans in general may not gravitate towards the Impossible Whopper, but it's a good option for vegetarians who just want a fast-food burger sometimes, and even for meat-lovers trying to reduce the amount of meat they're eating.

I just polished off Burger King's new Impossible Whopper for lunch, which comes with a meatless patty made of plants from Impossible Foods, a company focused on making plant-based meat alternatives.
It's an unusual lunch. I don't typically eat fast food for lunch, and the Impossible Whopper is a brand-new meatless offering from Burger King, a company that's built itself on meat sandwiched between bread.
What are my qualifications to review fast-food? Well, I appreciate fast-food. I find it fascinating that millions of dollars - if not billions - in research and work were spent on every bite I take. And, straight up, I find fast food delicious in its own way.
Check out what I thought of Burger King's new Impossible Whopper:
Here it is, the Impossible Whopper from Burger King, knows as the "Imposs Whop" in Burger King's systems.
The contents of the Impossible Whopper meal look identical to a regular Whopper meal.
The packaging of the Impossible Whopper itself has different colors. I had the option to add cheese to mine, and it was an easy choice to make.
Unleashed from its wrapping, the Impossible Whopper could easily sneak by as regular Whopper, at least at first glance.
Upon closer inspection, I started to recognize the usual visual cues that the patty within was of the veggie variety.
Otherwise, you get the usual Whopper toppings, including tomato, lettuce, onion, ketchup, mayonnaise, pickles, and the optional cheese.
With little drama, I took the first bite. Despite an exterior that's nearly identical to a regular Whopper, it was clear that the Impossible Whopper was different.
The Impossible Whopper was good, but the next Whopper I'll get will likely be the regular Whopper.
