As Americans have turned away from fast food in the past few years, long-established brands such as Burger King, McDonald’s, and Wendy’s have had to make difficult decisions. Do they continue to serve the kind of calorie-dense, fat-laden, processed meals that for decades brought them the love of American eaters, or do they pivot and attempt to offer more health-conscious options to discerning consumers?
Until know, those were the only options ways I knew. It appears Burger King has found a third route. Double down on the unhealthy, unholy offerings in the most savage way possible. The kind that after one bite will leave the fat receptors in your tongue unable to derive pleasure from anything other than this one lipid bomb.
Meet the Butter Burger.
Wait, technically, it’s the Butter Cheeseburger.
Nope, actually, it’s officially known as the Extra Long Buttery Cheeseburger.
How you gonna eat a cup of whole grains for breakfast after seeing this?
From Brand Eating:
The new burger gives a slight tweak to the Extra Long Cheeseburger by adding a buttery garlic-flavored sauce onto each patty. Other than that you get the same two beef patties, onions, iceberg lettuce, ketchup, American cheese, and mayo on a toasted hoagie bun.
I’d say no, but apparently mixing butter into burgers has been very successful for a competitor of theirs.
