The King Turns to Botany-Based Burgers for ‘Impossible Whopper’

While the announcement may have coincided with April Fool’s Day, Burger King is certainly NOT joking around.

Burger King is taking a wild new stance in the fast food wars, and is dabbling in a product that many are calling “impossible”.

Well, not “impossible” as in “it can’t be done”, but Impossible, as in the brand name.

You may have heard about the Impossible Burger, a plant-based patty that bleeds and sizzles when it cooks. It’s made using an ingredient called haem (or heme, an iron-containing compound that’s abundant in animal muscle) and aims to mimic that basic moreish meaty flavour. Since it’s made from plants, it has a much smaller environmental footprint than its classic beef counterpart.

As someone who has, on more than one occasion, eaten an Impossible Burger, let me be the first to tell you that it’s solidly okay.

No, it’s not beef, and no American carnivore is going to be fooled completely, but the product is surprisingly beef-like given its lab-grown origins.

For this author, it falls somewhere between a great black bean patty and a mediocre, fast food beef patty.

And maybe that’s why Burger King is gambling big on it.

“We wanted to make sure we had something that lived up to the expectations of the Whopper,” said Burger King’s North America president, Christopher Finazzo. “We’ve done sort of a blind taste test with our franchisees, with people in the office, with my partners on the executive team, and virtually nobody can tell the difference.”

This taste-test included a hidden camera segment, rolled out just in time for April Fool’s Day, no less, in which customers swear that they cannot tell the difference.

Upgrading to the Impossible Whopper will add about a dollar to your overall purchase price at participating Burger King restaurants – a cost that BK believes that the public will pay for.

For the hardcore veggie-based dieters, however, there will likely be concerns over the cross-contamination aspects of minimum wage employees in a cramped kitchen working at a breakneck pace.

Watch: Boy Pummeled By Black Teens for Wearing Trump 2020 Hat On School Bus [Video]

This kid may just grow up to be the next best fighter in boxing history…

Liberals will remain silent on this story. Privately, they will cheer on the attackers for beating a white boy simply for wearing his pro-Trump hat on the school bus. Thanks, Obama. That’s the problem. Liberals in Congress and the mainstream media refuse to acknowledge anti-Trump attackers because they know such violent humans will be voting Democrat in 2020 and forever on. Pretty sad. Check this out, via New York Times: The boy’s mother on Thursday released a 21-second video of the Nov. 21 attack in Hamilton County, where two girls and three boys are seen relentlessly punching him as other students look on and scream in the background. The boy, identified as Tyler, was assaulted for previously wearing to school a Trump 2020 hat that he bought “with his own money” at a flea market several weeks earlier, his mother said. […] The teen was then “steadily” bullied on the bus, getting “tripped” and verbally abused before the situation culminated in the beatdown that required a trip to the hospital, his mother claimed. WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7QTm5AAZGbA&feature=emb_logo It’s not safe to be a young Trump supporter in school these days. Then again, it’s not really safe to be a Trump supporter outside of school, either. Unfortunately, the media is more concerned on attempting to cover for the likes of Jussie Smollett and Indian activist Nathan Phillips than reporting what truly matters. Case in point: a high schooler was assaulted for wearing his MAGA hat. MSM’s response? Crickets. WATCH: https://twitter.com/RyanAFournier/status/1100462367387910145?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1100462367387910145&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fdailycaller.com%2F2019%2F02%2F26%2Fstudents-maga-apparel-ripped-off%2F How awful is that? People are still, to this day, triggered by a hat, despite the fact that minority unemployment under President Trump is at an all-time low. Where’s the logic? It’s time for journalists to be journalists again and report these types of instances.

Dem Misquotes POTUS In Impeachment Hearing, CNN Agrees With Trump It Was On Purpose

They admitted the truth?

Hold the phone! CNN just reported in favor of President Donald Trump? Either pigs are flying or the sky is falling because something is clearly off, here. But it happened. It actually happened. You’d have to imagine CNN President Jeff Zucker isn’t too pleased, considering he has an agenda to take POTUS down. Aw, shucks. Here’s the deal, via Daily Wire: CNN, which is often hostile in its coverage of President Donald Trump, admitted on Thursday that Trump was “correct” when he said on Thursday that Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee had “purposely misquoted” his July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Here’s what CNN noted: During the debate over impeachment articles, [Democrat] Rep. [Veronica] Escobar, using an analogy to stress the alleged problem in Trump’s phone call with Zelensky, said “I want you to do me a favor though.” This quote replaces the word “us” found in the memo on the call, with the word “me.” Rep. Jackson, when quoting the memo of the call, said that the quote was “I would like you to do a favor though” — removing “us” from the quote. Trump’s response: Dems Veronica Escobar and Jackson Lee purposely misquoted my call. I said I want you to do us (our Country!) a favor, not me a favor. They know that but decided to LIE in order to make a fraudulent point! Very sad. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1205150488280350720?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1205150488280350720&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Ftrump-democrats-purposely-misquoted-me-in-impeachment-hearing-cnn-hes-correct%2F CNN’s Jim Acosta doesn’t seem so interested in being a journalist. It would be as if he’s more into himself and bashing the Trump administration and putting out tell-all books. Because you demanded it, here’s you daily dose of Jim!
