Thursday Inspiration 61 — Impossible Paradise

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.

This week’s theme is paradise and the picture is [above.] Here is the song snippet from “Cheeseburger in Paradise,” a 1978 song from Jimmy Buffett.

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

          1. Interesting…
            “The Impossible Burger is not available in South Africa yet. The company picked Asia as its first international market because it makes up 44% of the world’s growing demand for meat — but it said its “long-term goal is to transform the global food system and have products in all key regions globally”.”

              1. I do! I’ve been here almost 10 years now. My hubby and I (and our little cat) moved here from Liverpool (UK) to ‘do something different’ before we turned 50. It’s been quite an experience so far.

    1. The fact that this plant-based burger tastes exactly like a flame-broiled hamburger truly is impossible but in a good way. Not sure why they aren’t available to buy at the grocery store. Maybe by the time you pull out your grill they will be 🙂

  1. We talked about this months ago before all of this happened but I finally tried one at Red Robin…I wasn’t disappointed…it was really good.
