The Impossible Slider Has Possibilities
June 15, 2018
I want to rave about White Castle’s The Impossible Slider but I cannot. Why? Because it’s not gluten-free. 🙁 [Psst. Want the ingredient list? Forbes culled it for us.]
However, I did pinch off a teeny bit to try it. The texture is eerily meat-like but it does have a chew that is all too veggie to have gone, “Moo.”
My son had a decent portion of the burger and proclaimed it as, “A very good veggie burger; almost like the real thing, but not there yet.” High praise from an 18-year-old.
The cheese and pickles go a long way to make it look appealing and adds the traditional flavor profile of an All-American burger.
The best part about this burger is that it takes up only 1/3 of the resources that farmers use to bring a real beef burger to the market. And, it’s all plant-based making it a healthier, more sustainable food choice for the planet.
Yes, there are a few questionable ingredients in the burger that I am sure will get sorted out sooner rather than later. However, this is a more viable path so that resources can be utilized for a little while longer.
What say you? Have you tried The Impossible Slider yet? What do you think?
