The Impossible Burger, a meat-free burger that’s previously only been available in restaurants, will be available to buy in grocery stores for the first time this week.

Starting tomorrow, September 20th, you’ll be able to buy the plant-based burger in 27 Gelson’s Markets stores in Southern California.

Impossible Foods says it will bring the burger to more grocery stores — including some on the East Coast — later this month, and it plans to reach every region of the US by the middle of next year.

The launch brings Impossible Foods into even closer competition with Beyond Meat, which already sells its own meat-free burger in grocery stores in addition to restaurants.

Compared to this list of chains, Impossible Foods is lagging behind in selling its burgers directly to home cooks.

Impossible Foods has been teasing the retail release of its Impossible Burger for the past week, encouraging its followers to guess which city the burgers will debut in.

Impossible Foods says its burger is now available in over 17,000 restaurants, including more than 7,000 Burger King locations. »

If you have a Samsung phone and you are wondering if your own device is getting the update, here’s a list that allegedly confirms who is getting it and who is not.

Yeah, your 2017 flagship phone is not getting Android 10, according to the official list leaked by AndroidPure.
