We tried Burger King’s Impossible Whopper, and now we’re sharing our brutally honest thoughts about this meatless burger! Find out about the nutrition facts, locations, and price of the brand new Whopper!
What is the Burger King Impossible Whopper?
Burger King’s Impossible Whopper is a take on their original burger. The difference?
The Impossible Whopper is meatless!
The patty is flame-grilled and topped just the way you like it. You can add tomatoes, lettuce, mayo, ketchup, mustard, pickles, and onions just like the original beef burger. It’s also still served on a sesame seed bun.
The promise is that you won’t be able to tell the difference between the original beef burger and the new meat-less option.
Does the Impossible Whopper taste like a Whopper?
We’re a sucker for a taste test. So we had to try the meat-less option as soon as we could find it!
The verdict? It costs a little bit more, and it tastes okay.
With that said, we hadn’t had a beef Whopper in a while. It’s better than most veggie burgers, but it definitely tasted better with all the toppings on it.
Our biggest complaint? It’s not much healthier (if at all) compared to the beef burger. Check out our full video below to see our full taste test.
Which Burger Kings have Impossible Whopper?
The Impossible Whopper is now available at all Burger King’s across the United States. Though – we did notice our airport was either out or didn’t have it.
Is Impossible Whopper vegan?
No. While Burger King’s Impossible Whopper is 100% plant-based, it’s not 100% vegan.
The burger is grilled along side the beef and chicken, and the optional mayonnaise isn’t vegan either.
Is the Impossible Whopper healthy?
Burger King’s Impossible Whopper packs 630 calories and over 34 grams of fat! This is only 30 calories and 6 grams of fat less than the original Whopper.
Paired with a medium fry (380 calories), the Impossible Whopper meal clocks in at 1,010 calories!! That’s if you got a water or diet soda too!
Most women need about 1800-2000 calories a day – so this meal seems pretty high to us! Not to mention it’s not offering a ton of nutrition.
It’s about the same as eating a regular old Whopper nutritionally, and I don’t think anyone would say that a Whopper is a healthy choice.
(Nutrition Facts for both Whoppers were pulled from Burger King’s site).

After comparing the two, you’ll even see the Original Whopper offers less carbohydrates, sodium, and sugar, and it also contains more protein. Mind you – I’m not suggesting run out and eat one. I’m just showing there are differences in both products besides the meat.
Is the Impossible Whopper more expensive?
Yes, it’s about $1 to $2 more than the original beef Whopper. We paid a little over $7 for 2 and a drink for our taste test.
While the nutritional value of the burgers are similar, we will say that the taste of the meat-less option was about as good at the beef burger. It definitely didn’t taste like a veggie burger.
So why make a veggie burger if it’s not necessarily healthier?
Impossible Foods, the company behind the 100% plant-based “meat” in the Impossible Whopper, is focused on reducing “humanity’s destructive impact on the global environment by completely replacing the use of animals as a food production technology.”
