The Impossible Burger: Bloody, Delicious, and 100% Plant-based

For most of us, we grew up eating burgers. Whether at a friend’s birthday party, a backyard BBQ with friends, or even fancy restaurants, burgers have been a staple of our American culture. Few would ever think of tinkering with such a powerful brand, but the creators of Impossible Foods set out to do just that. This burger, however, is made entirely from plants. And yet, it bleeds.

Amazing Foods of the Future We’ll All Be Eating Soon

Huh!? Come again? How could anyone do the impossible and create a burger made from plants that tastes just as good as burgers made from cows? Well, the Silicon Valley folks at IB did just that.

Amazing Foods of the Future We’ll All Be Eating SoonDon’t just take my word for it. Ask celebrity Chef David Chang (founder of the Momofuku restaurant empire), a purveyor of foie gras, pork belly, and just about every other kind of meat on the planet, what he thought when he sunk his teeth into this juicy miracle:

“Today I tasted the future and it was vegan: this burger was juicy/bloody and had real texture like beef. But more delicious and way better for the planet. I can’t really comprehend its impact quite yet…but I think it might change the whole game.” – Chef David Chang

The implications of The Impossible Burger are hard to comprehend. Right now, it takes over 600 gallons of water to make ONE hamburger. Wow. The Impossible Burger doesn’t use animals, so they can make it using 95% less land, 74% less water, and 87% less greenhouse gases. It also avoids you having to ingest any hormones or antibiotics (that’ll save you a lot of $ at the doctor’s office in future years!).

It’s now available at White Castle, TGI Fridays, and Bareburger. Add this baby to your foodie bucket list, you won’t be sorry. Just remember to thank me later 😉

    If I’m forced too, but as long as I still have the option, I’m going with natural. Even if it’s not as natural as those false advertising companies make it out to be.

  2. Geraldine Pettigrew

    Still not eating it. I would rather have actual meat, even if it has some GMO in it than pure artificial meat

  3. Joyce Shealy

    It’s not like we’re just killing animals for fun we need meat.

  4. Earline Wilham

    Man Meat is my favorite food, and if they take away our natural, delicious, succulent steaks, ribs, chops, and organ meats I will resort to cannibalism in the future.

    I can’t see people getting on board with lab-grown meat. Most people don’t look into or study things and just jump on the bandwagon of hating something that just sounds bad that they know nothing about as they do with GMOs and gluten. Most would be shocked to know that they have never eaten a natural fruit or veg (as they were 100 years ago give or take) in their life as this has been done for so long it has changed the food entirely. If we didn’t change our crops many would have died out. Ever wonder why banana flavoring tastes nothing like Bananas? They do. They taste like a breed of banana that was killed off by fungus more than 50 years ago. I am all for future food and GMOs! We need to protect our Bananas!!!

    What about human meat? You can solve food shortages and overpopulation at the same time.

      A big problem with that. Cannibalism is considered immoral in a lot of cultures, and it actually has been proven to provide several different diseases.

  7. Karen Smith

    It all sounds ok, but I hope they will be cheaper, and that we don’t just get many new diseases from any of them.

    Everybody can be fed now and in the future without resorting to strange foods if wastage is avoided (it is estimated that between 30 to 50% of all food output is lost to wastage due to various reasons).

    Until we get a pizza roll bush science can fuck right off.

    And this is why I voted for Trump. Because I knew that he would get us all killed before I had to eat any of this garbage. An
