The Impossible Whopper isn’t so impossible after all. Burger King has come up with a new type of burger that is plant-based. According to Burger King, impossible foods are genetically engineered to make the ingredients that give the juicy texture and taste of a burger. Instead of using the actual plant-based wheat protein, Burger King took an alternate route and used soy protein. The burger’s main ingredients are water, soy-protein concentrate, coconut oil, sunflower oil, and natural flavors. 

Burger King has been putting this burger all over T.V. advertisements and ads that you can see on social media apps, such as Instagram and Snapchat. In the commercials, the customers taste the burger before they learn that they’re actually trying the Impossible Burger. When they realize they’re eating a plant-based burger, they are surprised of how much it actually tastes like a burger. 

After trying the burger myself, I realize that it was not meant for me. I took one bite and knew immediately that I was not eating a regular burger. Everything about the Impossible Whopper speaks “fake meat”; it’s under cooked and doesn’t have the same juicy texture as a normal burger. They tell you that this burger is plant-based, but it is loaded with chemicals and artificial flavoring to give it the same texture and taste as any other burger. Make sure you are not tricked by this tomfoolery and blasphemy that Burger King is putting out in front of you and attempting to pass it off under the name Whopper. The Impossible Whopper is garbage and is nothing compared to the regular Whopper. It’s not even necessarily a healthier choice, because it doesn’t carry the same proteins and vitamins that the average burger has. After trying the burger I gave it a rating of a 1.3 out of 10, because of the horrible taste and texture.
