Impossible burgers

I’ve been a vegetarian for over 25 years, so I can’t really compare them to real meat products. For me, the patty is one of the least important components of a burger. If you have the best patty but put it on a crap bun with shredded lettuce and unripe tomatoes, it’s not going to be good. So, I’ve had the Impossible Burger, but only from Fatburger, which is a fast-food chain. All the other components are crap, so it’s just not good. That said, the chain Mendocino Farms has an Impossible Taco Salad made with Impossible fake chorizo. It is an amazing salad to which both my husband (a lifelong vegetarian) and I are completely addicted. I would buy the Beyond Meat burgers at the store, but my son really likes the Don Lee Farms veggie burgers from Costco which have a fair amount of vegetables in them, so I have no reason to switch things up.

I’m waiting for impossible veggies, made from meat but packed with healthy stuff.

Sad really, you fell for a whopper?

+1 I am more upbeat on the regular whopper than you (edible to me) but this impossible whopper has tasteless meat. OK texture to me. I am sure that texture was their focus.

I had my first Impossible Whopper the other day, in fact my first Whopper of any kind. It was entirely tasteless and flaccid. The friend I was eating with, who had ordered the same, remarked: “It’s exactly the same as a regular Whopper”.

Honestly, it’s completely baffling to me that any person of sound mind would ever expect a non-meat Whopper to be any less crappy than the meat version.

Glossing over the fact that the proper comparison would be to hamburger as actually seasoned for the grill, I would add that I have noticed that generally supermarket foods prominently advertised as LOW IN XXX (eg fat) tend also to be high in YYY (eg salt), but that is confined to the small print.
