The makers claim the burger looks, smells, tastes, cooks and even bleeds like the real deal.

The burger aptly named the “Impossible Burger” is not only setting social media on fire but it’s also a potential game changer in modern dining.

The burger also boasts positive environmental impacts as it has the potential to reduce society's dependency on livestock.

“Because we don’t use animals, we can make it using 95% less land, 74% less water, and with 87% less greenhouse gas emissions," the company website states.

“Oh, and without any hormones or antibiotics.”

The burger was a hit in NYC.
