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.

    I had the Impossible Slider at White Castle last week. I know the expectation is low with White Castle, but I think it is the best item on the menu, and went back for more.

    Perhaps I'm most impressed with the 2 dollar price point. Given cheese is included and the patty is much thicker than White Castle's hamburger options, this price is in-line with the menu. My takeaway is this vegetarian option can compete both in price and taste with fast food.

    I am shocked at the price they charge to add a slice of cheese.
