Last minute fathers day gifts and meal sets
Fathers are just as important as mothers, and while Father’s Day doesn’t cause as much buzz as Mother’s Day, this is a great opportunity to honor the man who taught you how to ride a bike, took you on your first fishing trip, and kept the monsters beneath Bed in check. St John restaurants and bakeries have creative, last-minute Father’s Day gifts that will delight daddy’s taste buds. From sausage gift baskets to 24 packs of his favorite adult drink, these flavourful gifts are perfect for celebrating that special father in your life.

Burger King’s Impossible Croissan’wich Now Available in St John
Last year, Burger King made headlines with the announcement of its Impossible Whopper. A few months ago, shortly after the vegan victory, the fast food giant announced that it would be testing an Impossible Croissan’wich. Starting this week, St Johnans can finally sink their teeth in the Impossible Croissan’wich, which has been introduced nationwide. Vegans should be warned, however: while the Impossible Croissan’wich contains a plant-based Impossible sausage patty, the rest of the sandwich is filled with animal protein. Like a regular croissan’wich, breakfast served on a toasted croissant also includes eggs and American cheese. Impossible Croissan’wich is available at participating Burger King restaurants for a suggested retail price of $ 3.99. The sandwich is said to be available for a limited time – but BK didn’t say how long.
