Burger King is officially testing a 100% meatless, plant-based Whopper made with the increasingly popular Impossible burger patties. Burger King has gone to great lengths to keep its signature Whopper sandwich fresh and exciting in recent years -- everything from serving it on alarmingly red (or black!) buns to stacking literally eight slices of cheese on top. Now, the royal burger slinger is unleashing a new take on the iconic, 62-year-old burger in an extraordinary move to keep up with today's tastes. It's called the Impossible Whopper, and unlike every Whopper before it, it's 100% meat-free. As in the burger patty is made with plants, not beef. Yes, for real.

Burger King ’ s Impossible Whopper is arriving at over 100 locations in the San Francisco Bay Area.

BK officially unveiled the Impossible Whopper on Monday, but it's no April's Fools Day joke. The chain teamed up with Redwood City, California-based Impossible Foods to create the new burger, which features a flame-grilled, plant-based patty that -- just like a regular Whopper -- comes topped with tomatoes, lettuce, mayo, ketchup, pickles, and onions on a sesame seed bun. They're currently available to order at 59 Burger King locations in the St. Louis area as part of an initial test run that could potentially lead to a nationwide rollout, depending on how well they sell, according to a spokesperson.

Does the Impossible Whopper taste like a classic Whopper? Is it even remotely as good? Burger King claims the Impossible version is "as juicy, craveable and delicious as the original," and if you've ever tasted an Impossible Burger (they're served at more than 5,000 restaurants across the country), that's not hard to believe. They're legitimately good and even have as much protein as a typical beef patty. They could very well be good enough to fool a meat eater, but as Thrillist recently pointed out, "if we assume people love burgers simply because they taste good, no trickery is needed."

Burger King’s Super-Spicy ‘Angry Whopper’ Is Back to Burn Off Your Taste Buds

Burger King’s Super-Spicy ‘Angry Whopper’ Is Back to Burn Off Your Taste Buds The Angry Whopper has a normal bun, but spares no taste buds with its topping of jalapeños and “angry sauce.” The burger itself is a quarter pound of flame-grilled beef, and other sandwich toppings include lettuce, crispy onion petals, mayo, and thick-cut bacon. This aggravated cheeseburger is available as part of the $6 King Box, which contains a main sandwich, fries, a drink, and a sweet treat. The Angry Whopper costs almost $6 alone, but if you’re really not trying to get the King Box, it costs only $3 if you order through the BK app.

Burger King is introducing a Whopper made with a vegetarian patty from the start-up Impossible Foods. Burger King ’ s chief marketing officer, Fernando Machado, said that in the company’s testing so far “I have high expectations that it ’s going to be big business, not just a niche product,” Mr

Burger King ’ s “ whopper ” of a contribution to the meatless fast food landscape is, at least for now, still theoretical. The Impossible Whopper will only be tested in 59 of the And as Impossible Foods gets deeper into the fast food game, it’s possible prices for the popular, plant-based patties could drop.

Of course, that didn't stop Burger King from messing with people. It's April Fool's Day, after all. Along with the Impossible Whopper announcement, the company released a new video (shown below) that captures the reactions of people who were secretly served the Impossible Whopper after they'd ordered the classic version. The reactions were various exclamations of disbelief, including a few (censored) F-bombs. The video is probably staged and almost certainly highly edited, but it's still pretty amusing.

If there's one takeaway from the April Fool's prank, it's that at least a handful of people couldn't immediately tell they weren't eating a Whopper made with real meat, which again, is not at all surprising considering how meat-like Impossible Burgers taste. If you've never eaten one and are curious, the latest version of the meatless meat is made with a few simple ingredients: water, soy protein concentrate, coconut oil, sunflower oil, and natural flavors. Burger King said the Whopper version packs 17g of protein, 12g of fat per 3.5oz serving, and 0mg of cholesterol. A classic Whopper, on the other hand, has 28g of protein.

Online Petition Renews Call for McDonald’s to Offer a Meatless Burger

Online Petition Renews Call for McDonald’s to Offer a Meatless Burger A Change.org petition has seen an influx of signatures since Burger King started testing its plant-based Whopper.

The new Impossible Whopper from Burger King isn't made from any meat, it' s still not vegetarian or vegan, unless you order it the right way. Last week, Burger King announced that its new meatless option would be available nationwide starting August 8. However, some are upset that even though

Burger King ’ s new Whopper comes amid a wave of meatless burger options at popular fast-food chains. Carl’s Jr. and White Castle are both already selling beef-less patties . “If the Burger King launch is as successful as I expect it to be, and we go nationwide, that will add more than 7,000

White Castle was actually the first to the fast food Impossible Burger, when it introduced Impossible Sliders at all of its locations last fall. More chains will likely follow suit. In fact, Red Robin announced it too will start serving the Impossible Burger nationwide, starting on April 1. Your move, McDonald's. Hell, maybe Taco Bell will end up serving Impossible meat tacos some day.

There's no telling if the Impossible Whopper will land at Burger King locations across the country, but considering the trend, grabbing one at your local BK sometime in the near future appears to be likely. It all depends on St. Louis. Then again, that might not be a good thing.

NYC Burger King has been passing off beef as Impossible Whoppers.
People abstain from meat for plenty of reasons—ethical, dietary, religious—and for many, this choice is a serious one. That makes this news of a Burger King in Brooklyn, which admits to serving regular beef burgers to customers who’d ordered vegan Impossible Whoppers, more than a mere mix-up. Eater reports the Burger King at 736 Broadway in Brooklyn has for weeks been filling Seamless delivery orders for Impossible Whoppers with regular Whoppers, asking the Seamless driver to inform the customer of the switch.
