Impossible Foods Debuts New Impossible Chicken Nuggets

Impossible Foods reveals their plant-based take on chicken nuggets with the debut of new Impossible Chicken Nuggets Made from Plants.

Impossible Chicken Nuggets feature a crispy breadcrumb coating, a "springy" white meat texture, and a savory chicken flavor. They contain 40 percent less saturated fat (2 grams vs. 3.5 grams per serving) and 25 percent less sodium (400 milligrams vs. 540 milligrams per serving) than actual chicken nuggets.

Impossible Chicken Nuggets for restaurants is currently available through major foodservice distributors and can found on the menu at restaurants across the country, including: David Chang’s Fuku in New York City; Marcus Samuelsson's Red Rooster in Harlem and Miami; Sean Brock’s Joyland in Nashville; Tal Ronnen’s Crossroads Kitchen in Los Angeles; and Traci Des Jardin's El Alto Jr. in Los Altos, California.

Chain restaurants set to roll-out Impossible Chicken Nuggest starting this week include Fatburger, Gott's Roadside, and select Dog Haus locations.

A consumer version, which varies slightly from the restaurant version as the restaurant version is specifically made to cook in commercial deep fryers, is set to go on sale at grocery retailers including Walmart, Albertsons, Kroger, Gelsons, Safeway, ShopRite, and Giant later this month. Impossible Chicken Nuggets come in a 13.5-oz resealable freezer bag containing about 20 nuggets for a suggested price of $7.99. They're fully cooked and can be reheated in the oven, microwave, or air fryer.

In comparison, a 2-lb (32-oz) bag of Tyson Chicken Nuggets go for around $6 at most retailers.
