Putting meatless Beyond Burger and Impossible Burger to the test
Redwood City’s Impossible Foods announced Thursday that it has switched to a “version 2.0” of its meatless Impossible Burger, six weeks after El Segundo’s Beyond Meat introduced a new version of the plant-based Beyond Burger at Carl’s Jr. locations around the country. As the competition builds, the question becomes: Which tastes better? At back-to-back tastings at Carl’s Jr. and Gott’s Roadside, which has sold the Impossible Burger 2.0 since mid-January, the two new versions demonstrated they tasted dramatically different from versions 1.0 — and from each other. The Carl’s Jr. Beyond Burger ($9.49) greeted the nose with a swaggering smokiness and beef-like aroma that hit hard and lingered long.
