The fast foot icon created the new option to kick off its new plans to cater to the emerging flexitarian diet. A flexitarian diet features an increase in plant-based meals without actively cutting out traditional animal proteins. Serving as the latest take on Carl’s Jr’s signature Star Burger, the new item is centered around Beyond Meat’s new plant-based Beyond Burger 2.0 patty.
The new Beyond Famous Star Burger features a charbroiled quarter-pound 100 percent plant patty topped with American cheese, lettuce, tomato, sliced onions, dill pickles, special sauce and mayonnaise on a seeded bun. Delivering the same satisfaction of a classic burger, the flexitarian option is free of GMOs, gluten and soy, and has lower saturated fat than regular beef, while delivering 20 grams of protein.
Priced at $6.29 USD, the Beyond Meat x Carl’s Jr. Beyond Famous Star Burger is available now at participating locations. Additionally, the customers can also substitute the Beyond Burger 2.0 patty on any Carl’s Jr. sandwich for $2 USD extra.
In case you missed it, KFC recently released a firelog, that smells like fried chicken when burned.
