The New York Times reports that Burger King is slated to debut a meatless Whopper dubbed "Impossible Whopper," by utilizing vegetarian patties from vegan start-up Impossible Foods.

This news is not an April Fools hoax, as Burger King aims to become one of the first national fast food restaurants to sell a plant-based burger, according to the company. In January, Carl's Jr. added plant-based meat products to its menu and White Castle began selling a slider version dubbed the "Impossible burger" in select stores in 2018.

Burger King says that it plans to launch the Impossible Whopper at 59 restaurants in the St. Louis area first, and if it's successful, a nationwide roll-out is expected soon. A taste test clip of the Impossible Whopper is featured above.

Overall, the Whopper's other ingredients will remain the same: lettuce, tomato, pickle and onion toppings along with ketchup and mayonnaise, while the original beef patty will be replaced with the new vegan option instead, offering a healthier alternative.
