It has been debuted in St. Louis. We need Corbin to get his ass over there and eat one. People are raving about it. Burger King has sold out of both supplies sent to area stores. It is said to taste better than a regular Whopper. Made with genetically altered soy. Mayyyybe it is soylent green?

I kinda want one. Supposed to roll out to all stores soon.

I enjoy a whopper once in awhile. Also a Big Mac once in a while.

I don’t really get it. The impossible burger doesn’t look any healthier than beef.
Is the main benefit that it is more sustainable? Because, like, beef?

I'll guess some will eat it because it sounds healthy.  And some will because it presumably has a small carbon footprint or whatever

“Quanti soldi, Jesse James?”(if you know what movie that’s from, you rock)

I enjoyed the “All most Famous Star” from Carlos Jr, but for $2 less I can get the Super Star Combo... Price point is key...

whopper tastes burnt to me. Every time.   

However, I am a fan of their chicken sandwiches.   That's about the only fast food that I buy in our town.

My wife and I have always enjoyed when we have less meat in our diet. I enjoy beef, chicken, and pork, but I seem to enjoy them more when I also include vegetarian meals and fish meals. It is one of the reasons I like Indian and Pakistani food so much. I would welcome a burger once in a while that is not beef. The only veggie burgers I have had are the Morningstar variety...and I would rather eat the box they come in.

Don't care

Kind of care.

I am interested in it so we don't have to kill any animals.

I don't eat much fake meat stuff, but I recently tried the beyond brand bratwursts. The flavor is right on and the texture was damn close. A good bun and some Mustard and kraut with it should get you 90% of the way.

That's the rub right there.

 

A small number of Americans are interested in spending $2 more on a burger because it's more sustainable.   Even if it tastes exactly like the real thing - hell, even if it IS real beef, and it is "sustainable beef" somehow, only a handful of people are going to pay the extra $2 for that.  Right or wrong, that's America today.

 

Now, let's say the menu says "Substitute a sustainable burger patty for no additional cost" I bet you they would sell like hotcakes...

Yup.. exactly... I’m making a heath conscious, environmentally sustainable alternative to “delicious murder”, yet I’m going to pay extra? Yeah I bought it the first time... Not again... Another thing there’s no way there’s not some animal protein cross contamination going on in this process

Honestly, most fast food is garbage. I get the convenience aspect but I’m not above planning ahead. I only eat this kind of food when I’m completely desperate.

Chicken is the worst from this regard, but any livestock uses a large amount of resources per calorie. Plus, the ethical concerns with mass animal slaughter.
