The Rebel Whopper is plant based, however it is cooked on the same boiler as the original Whopper to deliver the same unique flame-grilled taste. Due to shared cooking equipment it may not be suitable for vegetarians and vegans at this moment in time.

Seriously, why even bother if they cant even get this right
A veggie burger thats not suitable for vegetarians....
Seems like they would be cutting out a huge portion of their market imo.

Pretty sure it's just a trial at the moment and a full roll-out will probably mean it'll be cooked in a way suitable for both vegetarians and vegans
I got so excited until I saw cooked on the same grill as meat burgers I understand they want to promote it to flexatrians if that’s the right word but what about the actual veggie and vegan people.

I’m sure that I was reading something about a different product from some other chain and they claimed that one of their products was vegan if it was cooked in a microwave instead of being grilled on the same broiler as the meat. Anyway Burger King have really missed an opportunity with this as they aren’t even using vegan mayonnaise with it.

Doesn’t look very appetising where is the salad toppings?


I asked for no mayonnaise as I hate it, and no lettuce and took the the onions off as I cannot eat them. The burger definitely didn't taste like normal beef whopper, however it wasn't horrible. I probably won't buy it again though

Note. This isn't a freebie. The sp offer doesn't give a price either as it may vary between branches. Mine was 1.99 in Ipswich.

Mine was fully loaded with the usual saladdy stuff.
Didn't taste bad either, but who knows if that's down to the animal fat it was cooked in?

I was charged the same price as a normal Whopper, £6.49 for the meal. I usually wouldn't ever pay that for a Burger King meal but I just really wanted to try the plant based Rebel Whopper
They may as well fry a few lettuce leaves in the animal fat on the grill and call that vegan.

It's not.

Where have they called it vegan? Where has the advert said the burger is suitable for vegans?

Then what's the point?
It's a corporate con to convince the fast-food mugs that they're embracing a healthier & more environmentally-friendly lifestyle.
I’d stick with my deviled eggs thanks

I feel sorry for your wife.


You shouldn’t. She keeps complaining about the gas meter anyway, it’s giving me an ear ache.

Was it free app doesn’t state price


Price of a normal Whopper (£4.49) or £6.49 as a meal
i thought this was called the soywhopper
They can't cook it anywhere else as it's flame grilled. They only have one broiler as they are large machines that require a lot of ventilation.
Burger King don't cook anything in microwaves and never have done. The microwave is to melt cheese and warm the food up and that is all it has ever been used for.
The flame broiler pretty much incinerates any meat off of the chain as it goes around but you won't ever get it flame grilled any other way (unless they manage to find room to install broilers for veggie only burgers).
