Canít put cheddar on a real one......
Fake cheese probably tastes more authentic than fake meat.

Im shocked @Dan  and other food connoisseurs here are actually interested in a fake burger...I know you wont say it tastes better than a regular burger but to actually care for it is still surprising. 
It's something to try once.

Well that would depend on the quality of the fake cheese or the fake meat.
Impossible foods is revolutionary.
How many fake cheese companies have $400 million in funding, with investors the likes of Bill Gates?
This is one of the stars of CES and for good reason. I had the 1.0 and was very impressed as was everyone who tried it with me. Very excited for 2.0!

I've had both. It's a great dish but it ain't a proper burger. It definitely doesn't deserve the premium the Jewish stores charge for it over a regular burger.

It's good during the 9 days, or if your wife shleps you to a milchig restaurant and there's nothing else you want on the menu.

The fact  you can put cheese on is good shtick, but tbh, maybe growing up and never eating cheese on burgers kind of made the whole cheese thing not really work for me.  I didn't think it added much.

No. "Both" was referring to fake meat and fake cheese. Although I didn't have the impossible burger with cheese. Felt weird.

How can you determine what price it's deserving without tasting it? Again, this is not ground up veggies in the shape of a patty. It's a whole new revolutionary technology commonly referred to as lab grown meats. Drawing on previous experiences with a Dr Praeger veggie patty is  inadequate.

Do we even know how it will be priced?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

i've seen the 1.0 vary in kosher restaurants from anywhere between $15 and $30 .
White castle sells it for $1.99 so i'm guessing a lower price when it rolls out in grocery stores .

Sheesh. I tasted the impossible burger. I just didn't taste the impossible burger with cheese. And correct, the taste was inadequate relative to the price.

11.50 in Boston.  At Cold Press, and they do a good job with it too.

I'm pretty sure that's not what this is. I believe the impossible burger is all plant-based.

That's like people who eat parve cheesecake on shavuos. Why even bother?
