I tried it like several months ago. I think it was ~$12 for one burger, which is kind of expensive considering that it's not even real meat. It looks a lot like real meat, but when you taste it you'll know for sure it's not meat. But it doesn't taste bad. I think it's pretty tasty actually. If it was more affordable, I would definitely order it again.

no, it's full of common food allergens, yeast, gums, and soy protein isolate. I rather eat a regular burger or just put veggies on a baguette.

If youre looking for more "bleeding" nonmeat burger alternatives to try, check out Beyond Meat's "The Beyond Burger" and Don Lee Farms versions.

I had it twice. It's tasted ok, not that special or that great. But for fake artificial meat, it does taste pretty good and tasted very close to like it's real meat. Though you can definitely notice a difference in texture. Honestly, I would rather have a real burger for slightly cheaper.

I guess ~$12 is actually pretty cheap, especially at a high cost major city. Most ordinary burgers at a restaurant or supposedly "artisan" burgers are around that price.


Enjoy any good things, even the little and menial ones, as you will never know what impending distresses could descend upon you in a moment.

White Castle will be including the impossible burger in it's menu at some locations.
https://techcrunch.com/2018/04/12/im...-white-castle/

I don't know where the nearest White Castle is where I live. I've only had the frozen ones from the grocery store. I guess there are no plans to have the impossible burger in the frozen White Castle sliders anytime soon. As far as I know there is only one restaurant near me that has the impossible burger and I haven't made it there yet so I still haven't tried one.

Tried the Impossible Whopper today. It was alright but weekend workers are never the best, seemed to not have as much ketchup or mayo as a usual whopper. Also wasn't very hungry so I'll have to try it a few more times to judge it better. It sure looked like beef I'll say that.

I had it twice a while back I think. It was surprisingly better than I expected, and I didn't notice much of a difference. That said, I rather have real meat. But it's definitely a good innovation, especially in the distant future when meat or food in general will probably become more scarce.

Curious to try the Impossible Whopper as well, since there's a Burger King a few blocks down from me. But I never like the whopper in the first place. So I likely will not like it regardless.

They tout it being healthier, but I heard that it has more saturated fat. That's kind of the wolf in sheep's clothing.

Saturated fat is great for you. Makes your cock bigger

I have not tried it myself. But just read a article in the newspaper about it.

Its not very much more healthier then eating a regular meat burger. Better option is to eat an actual veggie burger.

Fake burgers are unbecoming of men named Savage.

Soy isolate does not appear to be one of my allergens. But I think pretty much anything related to wheat might be (many things give me the runs and most of them have some kind of wheaty stuff in them).

Anyway, one of the few things I can eat without getting the runs (besides plain old meat) is tofu. Dairy does not appear to give me the runs (in general) and vegetables generally don't. Some nuts, seeds and legumes marginally do (if I eat them in substantial quantities) (My toilet takes some uncalled for abuse in short order if I eat a bag of sunflower seeds at one time, for example).

It took me most of my life to sort of semi figure out a diet that does not cause me to run to the bathroom right after I eat. And even still it occasionally happens. It would probably transpire if I ate one of these things. Just because there's so much mystery stuff in them (mysterious to me, anyway). My innards don't seem to like mystery ingredients and I will be woefully sorry if I forget that for a second.

I havenít had that but Iíve had some good veggie/vegan burgers...I still prefer the real thing over them but with the right person cooking many veggie/vegan meals with meat substitutes can be amazing. Iím always of the mind the people need to eat less meat in their diets not that everyone should convert to strictly no meat diets, though many doing that would help too

I had another impossible whopper today. This one was much better. I like the option because I don't eat much beef. I have some kind of intolerance or allergy to beef it if I eat it too often. I'll get a stuffy nose(more than usual) and often a pimple will break out on my face eventually.
