In early September, Impossible’s began appearing in select restaurants and grocery stores across the US It was a limited debut that meant that not everyone who wanted to try them would be able to. While not exactly a nationwide expansion, Burger King is about to start carrying the nuggets.
Starting Monday, October 11, the fast food chain will add an order of eight pieces of Impossible Nuggets to the menu of select restaurants in Des Moines, Iowa, Boston, Massachusetts and Miami, Florida. While they will only be available for a limited time, you will have a choice of dipping sauce. The nuggets themselves are made primarily from soy protein and sunflower oil.
According to Impossible, their nuggets have 40 percent less saturated fat and 25 percent less sodium than animal-based chicken nuggets. One thing to keep in mind is that the nuggets that BK plans to sell will not be vegan, as they will be fried in the same oil that restaurants cook their meat and cheese products in.
After the trial, we were able to see Burger King start offering the food across the country quite quickly. After he introduced the Impossible Whopper in, it was only four months later before plant-based burgers were available at BK locations in the US.
