When I saw Paula’s picture for this week, I knew what I wanted to write about — and it’s not fiction! A couple of weeks ago, in the mailed advertisements was the usual sheet of coupons for Burger King meals, sandwiches, bundles, breakfasts, etc. in their usual orange, brown, red inks. Looking them over I saw a green coupon jump out at me for….. ::::drum roll please:::: The Impossible Whopper.
For around a year now, Red Robin has had the Impossible ™ Burger available (for a $3 upcharge on their already ungodly expensive burgers, no matter how delicious they are) and so has a local restaurant (that doesn’t have an upcharge.) They have been unobtainable since lock-down, which is months now.
Drive-thrus at restaurants aren’t guaranteed to be safe, but safer than in-house dining. I immediately went out to get BK meal with the Impossible Whopper. Dear Lord, I thought I had died and was in paradise. They are delicious! I forgot how much the coupon was for, but if you go without one they cost about $4.50 + tax. This is half the price of the local restaurant and 1/3 – 1/4 of the cost of Red Robin’s.
If you’ve tried them, let me know in the comments. If you haven’t, get your body into the car and try one.

Cheeseburger in paradise
Heaven on earth with an onion slice
Not too particular not too precise
I’m just a cheeseburger in paradise
