In unbiased side by side taste test of Whopper vs BK Impossible Burger
90% could tell which was which and preferred the Whopper even though they only rated
the Whopper as average for a fast food burger.
That would take some real dedication by the followers of it to keep on purchasing the improper whopper with those kinds of reviews. For what’s worth the last time we ate at burger dink we thought it was awful, that was round two years ago.

Without side by side comparison Impossible Burger's rating improves and people who mistakenly
think just because it contains no meat it must be a healthier option will buy it.
Regardless of what you think of them BK and McDonald's sell millions of pounds of beef and
fake meat will cut into beef sales.

I’m under no false impression that those are not insignificant markets or that it won’t cut into beef sales. I’m just holding out for hope that it doesn’t cut into it too much.

I wonder how it compares to an equivalent product like Friskies or 9 Lives?
