Popular fast-food chain unveiling new, plant-based menu item

 

Burger King has announced a new menu item is coming to Canadian locations.

The Impossible Whopper, made with Impossible Foods' plant-based patty, is coming to the Great White North.

As of Monday (March 22), Ontario locations will begin selling the plant-based burger, while locations nationwide will begin doing so as of April 12.

The Impossible Whopper is made just like the traditional Whopper--a flame-grilled patty topped with sliced tomatoes and onions, lettuce, mayonnaise, ketchup, and pickles on a toasted sesame seed bun.

“We’ve been delighted by the popularity of the Impossible Whopper in the United States and are thrilled to bring it to our Impossible Foods fans in Canada,” Dennis Woodside, president of Impossible Foods, said in a news release.

“Our mission is to sell Impossible(tm) products everywhere conventional animal meat is sold today, and that includes Burger King, whose huge footprint and affordable prices can make delicious plant-based burgers accessible to more Canadians than ever before," he continued.
