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.

    A lot of vegans are vegan because they don't want animals to suffer, and because plant-based diets are a much smaller drain on the environment than growing plants to feed animals and then eating the animals. Cows in particular are the least environmentally efficient of the common meat sources - if you don't care about animal suffering but care about the environment, switching to chicken, turkey, lamb, and pork is better.

    I haven't had the Impossible Burger. The Beyond Meat Burger, which flat out tastes good (unlike most veggie burgers) is basically nutritionally identical to a beef burger in total calories, fats, and protein, it just has 4 grams of fiber and 3 grams of other carbohydrates. It's not cheap, though.
