June 27 brings new burgers. The Impossible King is a flame-grilled plant-based burger with American cheese, onions, pickles, ketchup, and mustard. Two for $6.
Avocado spread, tortilla strips, crispy bacon, and creamy spicy sauce top the Impossible Southwest Bacon Whopper.
The Southwest Impossible burger joins the Southwest Bacon Whopper Jr. and Double Southwest Bacon Whopper.
All burgers contain the same ingredients but ordinary beef patties, not Impossible patties.
Burger King's new Whoppers are plant-based fast food. Impossible Whopper went national in August 2019.
Meat-eaters and vegans were excited. In 2021, Burger King tested Impossible Nuggets.
These new Impossible releases may help Burger King recover some of the enthusiasm generated by the original Impossible Whopper, which increased foot traffic and sales throughout its statewide launch.
According to Restaurant Dive, Burger King witnessed some of its highest sales in years after introducing the plant-based alternative.
More fast-food and fast-casual companies are offering plant-based options.
White Castle was the first chain to introduce Beyond Meat or Impossible Foods to its menu in 2018, followed by Qdoba, Red Robin, Starbucks, Chipotle, White Castle, BurgerFi, and Carl's Jr.
