The plant-based burger that “bleeds” has come to a Fort Collins menu.

The Impossible Burger has done a lot of hum given it started popping adult in restaurants via a country. But until now, it’s been, um, unfit to find in Fort Collins.

The Mayor of Old Town started portion a burger in January, according to a restaurant’s Facebook page. 

The Impossible Burger is opposite from your classical black bean burger since a creators set out to qualification a meatless burger with a ambience and hardness scarcely matching to a traditional beef burger. 

Creating one Impossible Burger uses about one-twentieth a land and one-fourth a H2O of a burger done from beef, and it produces about one-eighth of a hothouse gas emissions, according to Impossible Foods.

The Impossible Burger isn’t sole in sell stores, though we can also find it at several restaurants in Denver, including dual during a Denver International Airport, and The Little Diner in Vail. The Mayor is such a new further to a list that it hasn’t been combined to a burger’s online plcae finder.

I suspicion a Impossible Burger was flattering convincing, though full disclosure: I’m a pescatarian, so burgers are fundamentally a apart dream for me. With that in mind, we picked adult one genuine burger and one Impossible Burger on Monday and had my co-workers taste-test them. 

They could simply tell a beef burger from a impostor, though they happily ate both. Some tasting records on a Impossible Burger: “about a same texture,” “a small bit of a eccentric taste” and “a small thinner” than a beef burger. Two of a 3 indeed elite a Impossible Burger.
