The delicious and un-nutritious Whopper from Burger King has always been a staple favorite at the iconic fast-food restaurant. You can always have it your way - unless you are a vegetarian, then you are basically confined to a salad and that's really about it.
Vegans and vegetarians rejoiced when Burger King announced a new meatless Whopper for its customers. The burger is called the Impossible Whopper and people really can't believe that it's not made from meat because it's that good.
However, there seems to be trouble in paradise... Keep scrolling to learn more.
It's the king of all burgers...All across the world, Whoppers are recognized as one of the most beloved burgers and they have been for quite some time.
Burger King satisfies every time.From Whoppers to their delicious, crispy fries, and even their crispy chicken sandwiches, there's no wonder why it's one of the top fast-food chains in America.
But they really aren't the most veggie-friendly place.If you're a vegetarian, your options are slim. But if you're a vegan, it's even worse.
Which isn't too great...How are vegetarians and vegans supposed to eat fast food? They are forced to skip out on some of the wonders of life simply because fast food restaurants cannot provide for their needs.
But have you heard of the Impossible?Impossible Foods exists to make plant-based products that still have that wonderful meaty taste. They've rolled out some amazing options like burgers and empanadas that are purely made from plants.
They've got a pretty solid mission.website boldly proclaims. It's a vegan startup that we can absolutely get behind.
But Burger King really loves meat.They pride themselves on their flame-broiled burgers and show clear loyalty and favoritism to their prized Whopper.
But Burger King is opening up to new ideas.

It's a pretty big deal!A big-named fast-food company proudly selling a vegetarian burger feels like the good news we needed to hear.
But there's so much at stake...For Burger King to partner with Impossible Foods was a pretty big risk, especially since a lot of their customers come in for their flame-grilled beef burgers.
Yet it's a risk BK are willing to take.Pat Brown, CEO of Impossible Foods, is excited about the partnership. "The fact that Burger King...has chosen not just to serve the Impossible Burger but to serve it as the Impossible Whopper... I think is a huge endorsement," Brown said in an interview.
Shoutout to the vegan pioneers!
