Burger King continues to lead in plant-based fast-food options!
Fast-food chains have tried to keep up with the demand for more vegan-friendly options in the past couple of years. We have seen international launches from McDonald’s, KFC, Starbucks, and many more. But, Burger King started it all in 2019 with the era-defining launch of its Impossible Whopper.
Burger King Releases Impossible Chick’n Sandwich in the US
Burger King changed the game in August 2019 with the release of the Impossible Whopper. This sparked a new shift in the vegan movement and quickly became the standard of accessibility for vegan options. The fast-food chain continues to pioneer plant-based innovation. And it is about to disrupt the vegan scene again with another exciting release. Starting August 22, for a limited time only in Cincinnati, Ohio, Burger King will introduce the Impossible Original Chick’n Sandwich! Amid mostly vegan beef options in fast-food restaurants, this new menu item is perfect for an alternative taste. The vegan-friendly sandwich is part of a market test that will satisfy customers’ cravings in an entirely new way!
A Plant-Based Version of Burger King’s Fan-Favorite Original Chicken Sandwich
The new menu item is a plant-based version of Burger King’s Original Chicken Sandwich—the same item, but made entirely from plants (minus the mayo)! “Working with Burger King to launch our first-ever chicken patty has been a fun way to continue our partnership. Once again they’ve shown that they know how to deliver innovative options that taste great. We think fans are going to love this new take on the Original Chick’n Sandwich,” shared Dan Greene, SVP at Impossible Foods. The vegan-friendly sandwich is prepared with Impossible’s plant-based crispy, seasoned chicken patty paired with crispy lettuce nuzzled between a toasty sesame seed bun. Just order it without mayo, and you’re all set to indulge!
Although this is a trial run, we’re excited to see if the new item will be featured nationwide soon based on the test! Visit BK.com to stay updated.
