Plant-Based Impossible Whoppers Are Coming To Burger King Locations Nationwide

Burger King is less than a month into testing their new plant-based Impossible Whopper. It’s gone so well, apparently, that they’ve already decided to begin revealing plans to bring the vegan meat patty to all of their locations nationwide.

While Burger King has yet to reveal any numbers in regards to the test, they did note that the Impossible Whoppers are doing “exceedingly well” in a statement. “Burger King Restaurants in St Louis are showing encouraging results and Impossible Whopper sales are complementing traditional Whopper purchases,” it reads, confirming plans to extend the test to other markets in the near future. By the end of 2019, Burger King hopes to have completed a nationwide rollout of the plant-based meat.

This rollout would be the largest yet for Impossible Foods, who currently has its “bleeding” burger substitute available in over 5,000 locations globally. Adding Burger King’s US locations to that list effectively doubles it, as the chain has over 6,000 locations nationwide.

An In-Depth Look At Del Taco’s Entire ‘Beyond Meat’ Menu, Launching This Month

Del Taco is gearing up to launching their groundbreaking Beyond Meat partnership nationwide, and it’s a whole lot more than just a couple of tacos.

Starting April 25th, you’ll be able to get Del Taco’s exclusive plant-based meat on just about any item on the chain’s entire menu. This includes everything from the Beyond Taco and Beyond Avocado Taco to Loaded Queso Fries and secret menu items like the Bun Taco. Swapping out something like steak or regular ground beef for the Beyond Meat, however, will come at a slight upcharge.

For those wondering on exactly how vegan the menu will be, Del Taco is taking precautions to minimize any chances of cross-contamination. Each location will have tools specific to handling the plant-based taco crumble, ensuring that anything that touches regular meat will not touch the Beyond variant. That ensures that items specifically designed for vegans, like the Beyond Avocado Taco, stay that way.

Del Taco’s nationwide partnership with Beyond Meat makes it one of the largest in fast food to have a permanent plant-based option. It also gives consumers flexibility to adapt their diet, whether it be for health or sustainability purposes, so they are able to cut meat out of their diet more often at an affordable price.
