If you didn't know, you wouldn't know.
I'm talking about the Impossible Burger, obviously.
In a recent column about a young man who couldn't believe I didn't eat bacon (not fanatically, just practically, for health reasons), I ventured into a discussion of the new plant-based burgers that have quickly become popular and promised to write a review as soon as I found a place that served them.
Thank you, Burger King in Warwick, N.Y. My partner and I do not frequent fast-food establishments, but we recently had some unexpected time to kill and went to the nearest Burger King, specifically looking for the Impossible Burger to satisfy our curiosity.
There it was on the menu the Impossible Whopper. Two please, with cheese. No fries.
The first reaction will be hers, sitting across from me in the booth:
"It looks like meat."
"It acts like meat."
