Lansing Burger King is Testing the Impossible Croissan’wich
Lansing is the only city with-in 1,000 miles that has this special Burger King sandwich.
According to the Business Insider,
The fast-food chain is unveiling a new breakfast sandwich made with plant-based "meat," called the Impossible Croissan'wich. The Impossible Croissan'wich is made with an egg, a slice of American cheese, and an Impossible Sausage sandwiched between two halves of a toasted croissant.
Before all of the fast food lovin' vegans get all excited...it's not Vegan. The meat portion of this sandwich is plant based. Which is great for people that have to avoid red meat for their health. Actually, since there's no hormones or antibiotics injected in to this sandwich it's healthier for the world. However, there is still an egg and cheese on the Impossible Croissan'wich.
