Burger King has been selling the Impossible Whopper, made by Impossible Foods, in a select few restaurants since April. The fast-food chain first tested the meatless burger in St. Louis before announcing in May that they would be bringing the Impossible Whopper nationally this year.
Burger King’s meatless Whopper will be priced at $5.59 and will be available starting August 8th for a limited-time, as long as supplies last.
The chain will watch sales to see how well the meatless burger does over the next couple months before deciding if it will become a permanent menu item. With meatless products rise in demand, the company has high hopes for the new plant-based burger.
“We’ve heard great feedback and know the Impossible Whopper appeals to both current guests who are already big fans of the Whopper sandwich, as well as new guests who are excited about this new option,” Chris Finazzo, Burger King’s president for North America, said in a statement.
