Here's Why Environmentalists Are Cheering The Latest Burger At Sonic Drive-In
A classic blended beef-mushroom burger. The idea is that mixing chopped mushrooms into our burgers boosts the umami taste, adds more moisture, and reduces the amount of beef required for a burger. And reducing the need for beef has a big impact on the environment. This type of burger will soon debut on menus at fast-food chain Sonic Drive-In.

The fast-food chain is about to roll out a new kind of burger made from a mixture of beef and mushrooms. Sonic calls it "uniquely delicious." Environmentalists say it could help save the planet.
