Burger King Became the First Fast-Food Chain to Serve Vegan Nuggets

On October 11th, Burger King will be the first fast-food chain restaurant to offer the “Impossible Foods” vegan nuggets. The new menu item is a limited-time launch to test the meat-free item with consumers, and will be available in an eight-piece order with a choice of dipping sauce only at locations in Des Moines, Iowa, Boston, Massachusetts, and Miami, Florida. 

“The Impossible Chicken Nuggets – Made from Plants” are crafted from a base of soy and sunflower oil and feature a crispy breadcrumb coating and a juicy, meaty chicken. Burger King has confirmed that the plant-based nuggets will be cooked in the same oil as meat and cheese products.

Burger King first partnered with Impossible Foods back in 2019 to offer the Impossible Whopper. After a successful test launch, the burger expanded to more than 7,000 locations across the United States and was available in global markets, including Canada, Europe, and Trinidad and Tobago.

Ellie Doty, Burger King North America’s Chief Marketing Officer made a statement by saying, “This isn’t the first time we’ve teamed up with Impossible to make waves in the industry. In 2019, we became the first quick-service restaurant to serve the award-winning, plant-based Impossible patty and offer the iconic Impossible Whopper.” 

“So, it’s only fitting we’re the first global QSR to test the Impossible Nuggets. We’re excited to hear what our guests in the test markets think of this latest innovation,” she added.
