    I just had one for lunch. I always get a Whopper without cheese, so it’s consistent. I could barely tell the difference. If I wasn’t aware of the fact that it had no meat in it, I would have scarfed it down without a single thought. Now, if I could just get a complete list of ingredients. Might just be better off with the beef.

    I'm curious too. I haven't tried one, but I'll have to. Just think of the things that can be made out of plants! o_O

    ”Anybody try the Impossible Whopper yet?”

    Having known a number of major league b.s.ers in my life...they’ve run the impossible by me, on more than a few occasions

    My wife and I tried a side-by-side blind test of a Whopper and IW. We both could tell the difference, though it wasn't a huge difference.

    I got a double impossible the other day, no lettuce, tomato or mayo, add mustard. I thought it was excellent, my son, who had an identical 'impossibility' thought it had a weird aftertaste.

    I had an impossible burger from a steakhouse around here too. I thought it was good as well, and my son had no complaints about thatone.

    That would seem to indicate that most of the flavor in a real beef whopper is from seasonings, and the flame broiling process. Speaking for myself only, nothing can replicate the flavor of good beef. Who knows what science goes into the making of a fast food hamburger patty. :eek:
    Oh wow, I just realized, I’m a burger snob.

    Not really, you know what you like and have come to expect in a Whopper. That's the reason you go to BK and not Mickey D's.
    I told my wife if she wanted to do the IW thing, OK with me. But I'll stick with my Original, thank you very much.
    Hey...maybe I'm a burger snob too?

    I won't try any "meat substitute" unless I know what's in it.

    (Note to all: I'm not asking for a lesson about the beef industry here. I'm just stating my preference.)

    I could try to explain the list of ingredients, but it's, well...'impossible'.

    I'll certainly try one, but if it "tastes just like a Whopper", I'm pretty sure I won't be impressed. At the risk of sounding like an old fogey.....Whoppers haven't been any good in at least twenty years. They used to be among the best burgers out there, but I think that was when they were cooked fresh, more or less to order. When I want a great cheeseburger, I'll go to Kincaids. If I want a VERY good fast-food burger, I'll go to Griff's.

    the impossible burger, isn't a BK creation, it's some newish meat substitute and they isolated something that is the beefy taste in beef, and derived it from a soybean plant or something, so that I think the beefiness of the impossible patty (and it is beefy) is not reliant on Burger King's seasoning.

    On the other hand, it somehow seems different than the 1/2lb+ monstrosities I make here in nebraska on a weber kettle or in well seasoned cast iron skillet. For one thing... the patties are like 1/4'' ish thick or so... I got a double because I wanted to actually be able to sink my teeth into something. Still, don't knock it till you try it, If you think BK has acceptably good beef patties (which I don't) they don't have much on the Impossible patty imo.

    LOL, I went to BK last night on the way home from work. I called Miz Diane and asked her what she wanted. "Surprise me", she said.

    "They have the impossible burger now."

    "What's that?

    "The new trendy veggie burger."

    "You surprise me with that and I'll surprise you with a 10" genuine Lodge cast iron skillet upside yo haid."

    We had regular old whoppers for dinner. They were good.
