I found them to be delicious and similar in every way taste wise to a regular hamburger but they are meatless. And they do have fat, just less, especially less cholesterol.
Big plus for me.... they are better for the environment and for cows!
A more in depth article in the New York Times:
"But Impossible has broadly delivered on Mr. Brown’s desire to create an environmentally conscious alternative to meat."
"On the health side, the Burger King version of the Impossible burger will have about the same amount of protein as the regular Whopper, with 15 percent less fat and 90 percent less cholesterol."
And there is a competitor out there, Beyond Meat. I have also tried it and found it to be very similar.
I find myself wishing they could get the fat content down in either the Beyond Meat or the Impossible Burger. Then I could really get excited.
But as an animal lover and a rabid environmentalist these are both big steps in the right direction.
