Actually, Burger King does. They recently added the Impossible Burger in some locations.

Carls Jr finally added the "beyond burger." Its outrageous that BK, McD, and jack in the box offer 10 burgers but none meatless. I'm wondering if theres something addictive in meat. But it seems more like its just the general human quality of resisting change, especially with food. I suppose we get wired up as children to associate the foods we eat with satisfaction, so experimenting with new foods is not appealing.

Thx for that correction, BK had a veggie patty 15 years ago, I forgot cuz they arent in my 'hood. I suppose the problem is, folks disturbed by factory farming/mechanized slaughter, arent the type going to 24 hour drive-thrus. I wonder if legally mandating a few healthy options would create a disaster of unintended consequences (aside from triggering Libertarians!)

In any event its fun watching things evolve. Fingers crossed the Carls Jr experiment doesnt fail.

Maybe it’s for the vegetarian friend who wants to join her friends for fast food and not be left out. Then, the other friends will eventually get curious, they’ll all start eating non-meat burgers, and my stock will go up. O0

Seriously, though, the Beyond Meat CEO, although he’s a vegan, said his products are not really meant for people who already subsist on plants; It’s for people who like meat. The occasional Beyond burger will change them into “meat reducers.” I wouldn’t be surprised if Impossible’s philosophy is similar.

I see there is a thread on Beyond at B’heads- or was. It’s already locked for being non-actionable.
