Free Chicken Big King Only An Illusory Dream

The Big King is Burger King’s version of a two-patty burger with vegetables, cheese, and “King Sauce,” and it is totally not a clone of the Big Mac. Nope. On Saturday, Burger King introduces a new member of this royal family: the Chicken Big King, with two breaded chicken patties. Reader Adam lives in a test market where he had early access to this burger. It was not, however, free. [More]

Here’s another to add to the list of product names that don’t travel well: Burger King China’s PooPoo Smoothie, which may conjure up images of… well, I’d rather not say, but your inner grossed-out 8-year-old knows what I mean, but which has nothing to do with excrement and is apparently not awful.

The Average Burger King Outlet Earns Half As Much As A McDonald’s. Why?

Competitors McDonald’s and Burger King sell similar food to similar customers, and both use a franchise business model. Yet, on average, a McDonald’s restaurant takes in about twice as much as the average Burger King restaurant. Why is that? Well, for starters, that creepy king mascot of theirs was driving women and children away. [More]

An Imagined Dialogue Inspired By Video Of Two Bumbling Would-Be Burger King Burglars

As long as there are fast food restaurants, there will be attempted burglaries.

Burger King Adding Satisfries To Kids’ Menu Because Children Like French Fries

Having healthier menu options for kids is one thing, but convincing them that they want to eat apple slices or carrot sticks instead of fries? That’s an uphill battle for parents, says the girl whose first two words were “French fries.” As another option, Burger King is adding its healthier Satisfries option for kids’ meals.

Burger King Customer Upset At Profane Name On Receipt

It’s not clear how the party name “Bitch Ass Hoes” ended up on the Burger King receipt of a party of two women. Was it an employee’s prank for a friend that printed out for the wrong customer? Was the name not supposed to print out at all? Was the employee operating the register exceptionally rude? Burger King and the franchisee are investigating, and the grandmother who received the order remains upset. [More]

If You’re Wanted By The Police, Don’t Call 911 To Complain About Burger King Order

You know all those crime shows where nogoodniks refuse to go to the hospital when hurt or contact the police when robbed because they are dodging arrest warrants?

Update: Faux Burger King Resurrected As Actual Burger King

A quick update to last week’s story about the Pittsburgh fast food joint with the Burger King sign, Burger King menu, Burger King uniforms, but not Burger King food. It is apparently set to rise from the ashes and be reborn as… an honest-to-goodness BK. [More]

Which Other Restaurants Have Dough Conditioner Azodicarbonamide On The Menu?

Last week Subway announced that it would stop using azodicarbonamide, an ingredient known as a dough conditioner that’s also a chemical found in yoga mats, shoe rubber and other synthetic leather. It’s recognized as a safe ingredient in the U.S., but is banned in Europe and Australia as a food additive. But of course, Subway isn’t the only fast food restaurant to use it.

87,000 People Petition McDonald’s To Put Veggie Burgers On Menu

87,000 People Petition McDonald’s To Put Veggie Burgers On Menu

In spite of the salads on the menu, most fast food eateries cater to omnivores. I remember working with a vegetarian who would (willingly, mind you) go with me and my fellow co-workers to local fast food joints and order cheeseburgers without the meat, content to eat just the bun and cheese slices. Perhaps, all these years later, she’s one of the nearly 90,000 people who have signed a petition asking McDonald’s to put veggie burgers on the menu. [More]

Yes, Burger King Is Now Testing A Chicken & Waffles Sandwich

We’ve officially reached waffle sandwich overload. First Taco Bell starts testing the Waffle Taco, then it decides to start adding other meats and fruits between the waffles, then Jack In the Box slaps a couple of waffles on a breakfast sandwich. Perhaps not content to miss out on the next pretzel bun-type fad, Burger King is testing a chicken and waffle sandwich of its own. [More]

This Ad Almost Makes Me Want To Try A Burger King Lamb Burger

Lamb burgers are nothing revolutionary (and are often quite tasty) but they aren’t exactly something most people would think about rushing out to a fast food mega-chain to get. So how do you get consumers to associate a premium product with a bargain burger chain? For Burger King New Zealand, the answer is to wealthy-up the joint with a couple of super-rich gun-toting old gents. [More]

We’ve all had that gustatory moment when you realize that this thing you’re chewing? It’s so freaking good, you just need to come back and order another one.

International Fast Food Offers Winter Whopperland, Pizzas Topped With Pizzas

Burger King Resurrects Big Mac Clone, Complete With Third Bun

Think back all the way to 1997 and you might recall something called the Big King on the menu at Burger King. It had a lot of thee same fixings as the Big Mac, but it never caught the hearts and stomachs of consumers and was pulled from the menu before it went national, and it lacked the all-important middle bun. Now it’s back from the dead with a few new additions in an effort to put the heat on the Big Mac. [More]
