Any thought on plant based protein foods like these Impossible Whopper Burgers?

the Impossible Burger is much better than any of the veggie burgers on the market. It actually tastes and eats like a ground beef patty. I can't wait for them to be sold retail.

Product blows away any other plant-based "burger" out there.
They are hard-spec'd in the Alamo Alehouse theater chains, for example.
And will just take on traction as customers can draw in a few more customers with this product.

They are pricey, but worth it if you want to offer a solution that isn't offensive to eat.

Great product, too bad the company has been scaling so fast that it can't keep up on the inventory side of things. They're literally Impossible to find currently.

Del Taco’s plant-based taco line has gone beyond expectations.

The Lake Forest, Calif.-based Mexican quick-service chain said the brand’s Beyond Meat tacos, which debuted in April, have become one of the best-selling new products in Del Taco’s history. To date, the company has sold about 2 million tacos, ranking it alongside other top-selling new products such the 2016 launch of The Del Taco.

“The feedback from consumers has been overwhelmingly positive,” said Barry Westrum, Del Taco Restaurants Inc.’s chief marketing officer, in an email. “Vegans and vegetarians have referred to them as ‘game-changers,’ because it has allowed them to visit Del Taco with friends and family for the first time - in some instances - in decades.”

Westrum said the popularity of the meat substitute extends beyond the two different Beyond Tacos offered on the menu.

At some point, everyone will be eating laboratory food.

I can’t imagine favoring laboratory-produced food over natural, animal meat. What’s next, Soylent Green?

Plant-based foods might be huge with younger crowds, though.

All protein is plant based if you think about it.

Popular youtube channel "Can for an Uprising" weighs in on the Hollywood, Wall Street and Computer Tech billionaires excitement with "fake meat"  now being distributed and sold to suckers at virtually all their popular grocers and fast food brands. 

Anytime you see clowns like Jay Z, Katy Perry and sodomite Warren Buffett getting involved in some new trend you ought to beware.

Btw, after the impossible not being available for at least the last three months supply is finally starting to trickle back into my warehouse in the Midwest. Unbelievably customers are all about it and say it is way better than the beyond burger. Only available in bulk though no patties
