⁣Yes. I tried it. 🤭⠀

My stance as a plant-based advocate is always changing. I thought I’d never step into a fast food restaurant that profits almost entirely from deforestation of the Amazon. But I am coming to realize that whether I like it or not, millions of people are still walking into Burger King every day. And if I can offer a food review that would encourage such customers to try a planet-friendlier option and play a tiny role in shifting a global demand, that to me would be more effective advocacy than a boycott.⠀

Other things I’ve taken into consideration:⠀

🌱 The plant-based patties are cooked on the same grill as the meat ones. I enjoy my mum’s cooking from the same singular wok that my mum has been using since forever, the same one she uses to cook meat. I’ve also grilled my own veggies on the same grills at BBQ parties. If I do these already, why not make another exception? ⠀

🌱The Rebel Whopper in Denmark uses a different patty supplier from the one Burger King uses in the States. The Impossible Burger patty has been frowned upon by the vegan community for having tested on animals during its development stage. The European Whopper equivalent features cruelty-free soy-based patties by @vegetarianbutcher.⠀

🌱 The Rebel Whopper has normal mayonnaise inside. I asked to hold the mayo, and brought my own vegan mayo from home. ⠀

Maybe you don’t care about this over-analytical nonsense and just want to know what the Rebel Whopper tastes like. ⠀

You’d be happy to know, it tastes GREAT. ⠀

The patty has the same trademark juicy texture and smokey charbroiled taste as the original. I had only a vague recollection, until the moment I took my first bite. I gasped. The memories came back strong. ⠀

A great thing to also note is that the Rebel Whopper is priced the same as a normal Whopper, meaning no extra costs incurred for choosing a healthier option. ⠀

As an Aussie kid I loved eating at Hungry Jack’s. It has been over 20 years since I’ve had a Whopper and never thought that I’d live in a world that would allow me the opportunity to try it again. We truly live in exciting times.⠀
