‘Kumar’ Can Return to White Castle Thanks to the Impossible Slider
Actor Kal Penn, well known for his role as Kumar Patel in the 2004 film Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle, can now return to White Castle as a result of the Impossible Slider.
As Penn is a long-term vegetarian, Business Insider noted that for the popular film:
“[S]et workers had to make miniature vegetarian patties to swap out for the beef sliders in the final scene where Harold and Kumar order their meal.”
Now, after a trial at 140 White Castle locations “exceeded expectations,” the Impossible Slider has been added to all 377 White Castle locations nationwide.
Penn, who has invested in Impossible Foods and describes himself as an “aspiring vegan“, noted:
“The person in charge of props went out of her way to make little mini veggie burgers for me. Who would have thought that 14 years later we could be using Impossible Sliders?”
If the iconic duo of Harold and Kumar ever decide to return to White Castle, there is a perfectly delicious plant-based option ready for Penn.
