The Impossible Whopper

One of the best things about having a getaway weekend is that last grasp at alone time before you have to return to civilization. We'd had a good night with dinner at a nice restaurant, cutely-named yet tasty drinks at the hotel bar and then back to the room for a bottle of beer that we'd gotten the name of from a Buzzfeed show. What could we possibly do to wrap this weekend up with a nice little bow? To me, the answer was obvious: Lunch at Burger King.

Burger King has always been a guilty pleasure of mine, in some ways, more so than White Castle. It's like a better tasting yet somewhat less sanitary version of McDonald's. And I have been wanting to try the Impossible Whopper for quite some time now, but hadn't had the opportunity. I had reviewed the Impossible Slider from White Castle last year and found it to be decent, but not something that I would go out of my way to order because it tasted like its own thing rather than tasting like a White Castle slider. I was more hopeful with the Impossible Whopper, though, because Impossible Foods promised that "The Impossible™ Whopper® is just like the classic Whopper®, but made with an Impossible™ patty made from plants".

The Whopper has never been my go-to burger from Burger King. I generally prefer the double cheeseburger. But, since the Impossible burger is currently only available in Whopper form, I went with it. I got some chicken fries on the side just in case I couldn't stomach the Impossible Whopper and because, let's face it, Burger King fries are bland. With equal amounts of trepidation and excitement, I bit into the Impossible Whopper. And it was good! I mean it, this is a good burger. It actually tastes like what you'd expect from a Burger King burger. I could eat this on a regular basis and be very happy with my choice. I'm actually hoping that they'll expand the Burger King menu to offer Impossible burger versions of some of their other items. But, if they don't, the Impossible Whopper might just become my go-to item. With chicken fries.

So, there we were, sitting in a booth at Burger King, chowing down on our Impossible Whoppers while wearing our Burger King crowns. For me, it was the perfect denouement to a weekend getaway.
