Some call it a food sensitivity, others call it an allergy, whatever it’s called I just can’t eat beef. So when I heard Burger King was unveiling their new Impossible Whopper I was as hesitant as I was surprised. It's one of the largest fast-food chains in the world with nearly 18,000 locations worldwide and seemingly one on every street in the United States. A massive chain like this rolling out a product that is nearly the antithesis of their main menu? Weird, intriguing, shocking...pick your wording. Though I try my best to stay away from fast food I knew I had to try one out (I’d had a burger at Cheesecake Factory with an Impossible patty, it was when Drake and I had that fight and wrote me into one of his songs). Final decision? Honestly not too bad for a beefless patty. I’ve had my share of turkey, veggie, vegan, burgers but this Burger King Impossible Whopper wasn’t half-bad. Granted, it did have a decent bun and toppings that aided in the overall flavor but I wound up eating the whole thing and had no adverse allergic reaction so its a win in my book.
However, my favorite meatless “thing” I’ve had is the Vegan Dawn breakfast wrap at Common Market in Charlotte, NC. It uses soy-sage (think sausage) instead of traditional meat, spinach, white onion, tomato, vegan cheese, a hashbrown, and I add an egg to it, but that’s extra cost. If you are in the area, go visit it, you will not be disappointed (It's the header photo).
