Burger King's Impossible Croissan'wich Now Available in Miami
Last year, Burger King made headlines by announcing its Impossible Whopper. Then a few months back, on the heels of the vegan victory, the fast-food giant announced it was testing an Impossible Croissan’wich. As of this week, Miamians can finally sink their teeth into the Impossible Croissan’wich, which has been launched nationwide. Vegans be warned, however: While the Impossible Croissan’wich includes a plant-based Impossible sausage patty, the rest of the sandwich is packed with animal protein. Like a regular Croissan'wich, the breakfast meal served on a toasted croissant also contains eggs and American cheese. The Impossible Croissan’wich is available at participating Burger King restaurants for a recommended retail price of $3.99. The sandwich is to be available for a limited time — but BK didn't say how long.
