The Burger King monarchy has once again proven itself worthy of wearing the crown now that Dunwoody is slightly less affected by the nationwide Impossible Burger shortage we’ve ALL been suffering through. Me in particular.
So what’s the verdict. It honestly does taste like a regular Whopper. Maybe 5% less meaty. Granted I didn’t strip either the regular Whooper or Impossible Whooper down to just the meat, so maybe if I did, I could have tasted more of a difference. But with all the fixin’s on, it was nearly identical.
Will I buy it again? Hell yes, on principle alone. And unlike other things done on principle alone, like voting for a third party candidate, eating less meat actually does make a difference. Here’s what some scientists said…
“A Japanese study showed that producing a kilogram of beef leads to the emission of greenhouse gases with a global warming potential equivalent to 36.4 kilograms of carbon dioxide (CO2). In other words, a kilogram of beef is responsible for the equivalent of the amount of CO2 emitted by the average European car every 250 kilometres (155 miles), and burns enough energy to light a 100-watt bulb for nearly 20 days (New Scientist magazine, 18 July 2007, page 15 ).”
So 1 kilogram is 35 ounces. A Whooper is 10.6 ounces. So not eating a regular Whooper is like not driving 50 miles. I think that math checks out.
Point is, yes, the Dunwoody Burger DOES have the Impossible Burger.
