The Most Over-Hyped Fast Food Items Of 2019
- Published: 13 January 2020
- Some of these over-hyped fast food items of 2019 were genuinely delicious, but also, you know, sparked nothing short of riots. Others were just obviously a marketing ploy, hoping to cash in on the novelty factor. Which of these overly-hyped fast food items from 2019 did you fall for?
When it was first announced, there was a lot of hype and excitement from the plant eating community about Burger King's Impossible Whopper. But the big question was... would it be any good? They had the interest of the masses already, and as one of the first fast food chains to offer a meat-free option, Burger King definitely had the market.
Impossible Burgers are known for being very meat-like in texture and taste. But Impossible Burgers are also major salt bombs, containing even more sodium content than the original Whopper at a stunning 1080 milligrams. It also has more carbs and sugar than the original Whopper. Being plant-based doesn't necessarily mean something is good for you, but it was disappointing news to some.
One of the biggest let-downs of the Impossible Whopper, though, was Burger King's initial failure to disclose that the plant-based burgers were still being cooked on the same griddle as real meat. After all, they were marketing the burger as 100 percent plants, zero percent beef, and there would definitely be some cross contamination when they share a grill.
This means the Impossible Whopper technically isn't vegetarian, let alone vegan, so all that hype was for nothing. Sorry, plant eaters. This one may not be for you, after all.
