Burger King will sell meatless burgers, but they’ll cost even more than regular Whoppers

The future of fast food is plant-based. Nationwide fast-food restaurants are pivoting to vegetarian-friendly menu items.

Burger King QSR, -1.44% announced earlier this month that it was selling a meatless Whopper, made with a vegetarian patty by Impossible Foods that tastes and bleeds like real beef at select locations. On Monday, the fast-food chain said it’s taking that Impossible Whopper nationwide.

However, the Impossible Whopper costs about $1 more than the regular beef patty Whopper. The special blend from Impossible Foods, a company based in Redwood City, Calif. involves genetically modified yeast that many reviewers say tastes remarkably similar to meat, without the cholesterol.
