Everything You Need To Know About The Impossible Meatballs At Walmart

Meatless meat is all the rage this year, as more and more people are searching for plant-based alternatives to beef, chicken, and the like. There's the OG Impossible Burger, which has made its way onto the menu at many restaurants across the country, including Burger King. Then there's Beyond Meat, which makes everything from chicken-less chicken tenders to beefless ground beef and even McDonald's McPlant. According to NielsenIQ, the demand for meatless meat increased 25% from May 2020 to 2021, compared to meat's 9% increase (via NBC News), and Quality Assurance Magazine predicts that by the end of 2027, the industry's value will reach nearly $7 billion. 

One of the most popular meatless brands is Impossible Foods. Along with the Impossible Burger, the California-based company also has sausage, chicken nuggets, and pork (via the Impossible Foods website). It has also added meatballs to its repertoire. It's rolling out Impossible Meatballs in Walmart stores across the country. (They'll become even more widely available down the line.) Here's what you need to know about these meatless meatballs.

Impossible Meatballs are made of meatless beef and pork

While the Impossible Burger is made of meatless beef and Impossible Pork is made of meatless, well, pork, the Impossible Meatballs are a special mixture of both. According to the Impossible Foods website, the meatballs contain 12 grams of protein per serving and 30% less fat than their meaty counterparts. They also don't contain any cholesterol or hormones. A Mashable writer tried out the meatballs for himself and described them as "just the right consistency, springy and juicy, with a nice rich dose of garlic and spices."

The Impossible Meatballs are being released in some 3,000 Walmart stores across the United States (via Chew Boom). They cost $6.48 per pack of 14 meatballs and come frozen and ready for heating up whenever you're hankering for some spaghetti and meatballs. You can microwave them, toss them in the oven, or air-fry them to have dinner ready in minutes.
