After a vegan cheeseburger crashed and burned Burger King has successfully rolled out a true alternative to meat burgers for vegans working with Impossible Foods to make the vegan Impossible Burger. First thought to be an April Fools joke, the Impossible Burger is now on the menu at St. Louis with one carnivore inclined customer saying that he would not have known that it was plant-based.

Finally, the last barrier to mankind heading for the stars has been reached.

    100% Beef is in no way a requirement I have. But 100% veggie has been very hard to make meat-like for any reasonable cost.

    I was kinda sad when the fast food industry started chewing each other up over being 100% Beef :-\

    This is

    cooked on a surface shared with conventional meat.

    I'm not opposed, but that's gonna freak out the true believers.

    If successful, it may be rolled out across the chain’s more than 7000 locations in the US later this year.

    Here's hoping.

    These burgers cost $1 more than the meet paddy burgers.

      Which is actually quite reasonable. There have been fairly meaty experimental plant-based burgers in the past, but they've often cost well over $10 per patty to make.

      Being able to brew plant-based "blood" (aka "meat flavor") like it's beer has really been a huge advance towards making economical pseudo-meat.

    Agreed - a good blend of "fillers" can actually make for a much more satisfying sandwich. I'm a big fan of fat juicy grilled meatloaf patties myself.

      I would have never guessed that Burger King was a socialist plot.
