The End Is Nigh: Burger King Is Testing Something Called The Whopperito

Following the introduction of the Whopper Dog, which took all the fixings of Burger King’s iconic Whopper and put them on a hot dog, the fast food company is doing the same with a tortilla, creating the Whopperito. You know, for when the calories in a bun are just too much. 

Grub Grade, which first spotted a sign advertising the new concoction, reports that several Burger King locations in Pennsylvania are serving as test ground for the Whopperito.

As one might expect, the Whopper-burrito hybrid is just the contents of the burger — flame-grilled beef, American cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, mayo, ketchup, pickles, and white onions — shoved into a tortilla.

We’ve reached out to Burger King to see if the new menu item is the brain child of rogue franchisees or if the mash-up came from the company.

It’s unclear if the Whopperito will hit stores in other cities or states, but that hasn’t stopped potential customers from discussing the item on Twitter.

The Whopperito might be new to Burger King’s actual menu, but it appears the combination has been a favorite for some diners for a while. However, that combination actually involved going to both Burger King and Taco Bell.
