Burger King USA have confirmed that the Impossible Whopper will be available nationwide from Thursday 8th August.

The plant-based burger caused a massive reaction when it was tested at limited locations in May 2019.

Surely it is only a matter of time before it is released in the United Kingdom.

According to the BK USA website, the burger clocks in at 630 calories.

PRESS RELEASE:

MIAMI – August 1, 2019 – BURGER KING® restaurants announced today that it is bringing the plant-based Impossible™ WHOPPER® sandwich nationwide this month.

Starting on August 8, guests across the nation will be able to visit their local BK® restaurant, or order for delivery via the BK® App and through DoorDash, to try the Impossible™ WHOPPER® for a limited time only and decide for themselves if it delivers the same flame-grilled, juicy craveability of the famous WHOPPER® sandwich.

The Impossible™ WHOPPER® is 100% Whopper, 0% beef. It features a flame-grilled patty made from plants topped with freshly sliced tomatoes and onions, crisp lettuce, creamy mayonnaise, ketchup and zesty pickles on a toasted sesame seed bun.

“We are really excited to be able to offer our new Impossible™ WHOPPER® to our guests across the country at an unbeatable value for a limited time,” said Chris Finazzo, President, North America, Burger King Corporation.

“Since we first launched our market tests in St. Louis in April, and later in six other markets across the country, we’ve heard great feedback and know the Impossible™ WHOPPER® appeals to both current guests who are already big fans of the WHOPPER® sandwich, as well as new guests who are excited about this new option.

Starting next week, guests across the country will be able to try this this plant-based, flame-grilled sandwich which is true to the original WHOPPER® sandwich that our guests know and love.”

Before the nationwide launch of the Impossible™ WHOPPER®, the Impossible™ burger was hard to find despite being in high demand and that often led to fans going to social media to find where to find the Impossible™ burger is available.

In a new video, BK® found fans to come to the grand opening of what they thought would be a restaurant that only serves the Impossible™ burger.

The outside of the location looked like an Impossible foods restaurants, but it was really a BURGER KING® restaurant in disguise. Fans were surprised but delighted when they walked inside and saw it was actually a BK® restaurant and realized that they could now purchase an Impossible™ WHOPPER® at over 7,000 BK® locations across the country to satisfy their Impossible™ craving.

From August 8 to September 1, 2019, exclusively on DoorDash and the BK® App, guests can order the Impossible™ Taste Test and receive both an Impossible™ WHOPPER® and the original WHOPPER® sandwich for only $7.

To receive the $7 Impossible Taste Test and a $0 delivery fee, customers can use code IMPOSSIBLE and order on the DoorDash platform at www.DoorDash.com or through the app for Android or iOS.

Additionally, and exclusively on DoorDash, guests can order the Impossible™ WHOPPER® itself and also enjoy a $0 delivery fee when they use code IMPOSSIBLE between August 8 and September 1.

This April, BURGER KING® restaurants became the first coast-to-coast quick-service restaurant to serve the award-winning, plant-based patty from food startup Impossible Foods, maker of the Impossible™ patty.

The Impossible WHOPPER® is available for a limited time only while supplies last at a suggested retail price of $5.59.

    I’d like to see this in the UK. I would definitely purchase and hope that it would become an occasional but repeat order. I would also be happy if I got a genuine taste for the product and maybe even ordered in preference.

    I enjoy eating red meat, however I can see a future where it’s a genuinely luxury item. I would suggest high-quality beef almost already is…

    I had one of these Impossible burgers on holiday. It did taste like beef, but like bad beef. The patty was cooked fine and not particularly dry, but it tasted like a dry overcooked burger patty. I suppose if you really wanted beef it would do the trick, but for time being just have regular beef.
