Burger King Adds New Impossible Whopper Sandwich To Menus – Review


Burger King just added the Impossible Whopper to menus nationwide and says customers can’t get enough of it.

The Impossible Whopper Sandwich features a flame-grilled, plant-based Impossible Foods patty topped with lettuce, tomatoes, white onions, pickles, ketchup, and creamy mayo.

The Impossible Whopper carries a suggested price of $5.69 at my local Burger King. And you can add a slice of cheese for an additional 30 cents, though prices may vary by location.

You can find the plant-based Whopper sandwich at participating locations nationwide, while supplies last.

Mini Review of the Impossible Whopper

Although it looks and feels like a real Whopper sandwich, the new plant-based burger has that recognizable bean-like aroma coming from the lab-grown patty, plus it’s less salty, and it doesn’t have that chargrilled flavor that made its classic beef counterpart one of the most popular fast-food menu items of all time.

The Impossible sandwich is really big, and it’s loaded with mayo. But I enjoyed the lettuce, the pickles, and the tomatoes, they were on point as they usually are.

This plant-based sandwich is a good option for those looking to avoid meat, but personally, I prefer the good old Whopper sandwich that put the chain on the map.

Burger King’s Impossible Whopper has 630 calories, 34 grams of fat, 58 grams of carbs, 12 grams of sugar, 25 grams of protein, and 1080 milligrams of sodium.

  1. I’m happy this is rolling out. My son got to try one on a recent trip to Atlanta (it’s not in our area yet) and loved it. I was keen on trying one myself, but I cannot get anyone at Burger King to tell me if there are mushrooms in the ingredients (I’m very allergic, and have avoided many vegan/vegetarian burger patties b’c it’s often a key ingredient) — BK’s only answer to me is that “mushrooms are not a noted FDA allergen so we are not required to disclose if they are part of the ingredients”. Thanks, BK.

    Impossible reached out to me on Twitter and said that they do not include mushrooms in their recipe for the Impossible Burger, but that “we recommend you check with individual locations about their use of mushroom ingredients and cross-contamination risks”.

    So I’ll take that to mean that the Impossible Whopper Patty itself doesn’t contain mushrooms and they’re safeguarding in case there’s any mushroom cross-contamination in the prep area, I suppose.

    I just wish BK would be a little more helpful and a lot less reading-from-the-script.

    • Hi Ralph. Cross-contamination is a real issue that all fast food restaurants face daily. There’s definitely a high demand for vegan and plant-based options, so restaurant chains offering such options should make an effort to avoid cross-contamination. It may be cumbersome, but I’m sure it’s not “Impossible.”
