Burger King Just Woke Up From It’s 60 Year Food Coma And Will Now Be Adding Hot Dogs To The Menu

The execs over at Burger King just woke up from their six decade year nap and made the decision to add grilled hot dogs to their menu after successful market testing in Salt Lake City, Memphis, Baltimore, Detroit, and Kansas City. This will be the biggest change to Burger King’s menu since offering chicken in 1979.

According to Fortune,

There are two variations: a classic hot dog with relish, chopped onions, ketchup, and mustard; and a chili cheese dog. They’re made with 100% beef and cost $1.99 and $2.29 respectively. According to The Impulsive Buy, the chain also tested a “Rodeo” hot dog with onion rings, cheese, and barbecue sauce, an “A1 Ultimate” with bacon, cheese, and A1 sauce, and a corn dog—none of which made it to the permanent menu.

The dogs will be rolled out in all U.S. locations on February 23.


I know Burger King is throwing itself a party right now but its been around for over 60 years and for it to just be throwing hot dogs in the mix is like Baskin Robbins adding sprinkles to their menu and acting like they just found the remedy for the Zika virus.

Speaking of small heads, I can only imagine what the Burger King board meeting must’ve been like for the past 60 years.

Bill: Good morning, guys. We really need one more food item to expand our growth into 1972.

Carl: How about hair dryers?

Bill: Preferably a food, Carl. Please but your pants back on.

Linda: Hot dogs!

Bill: Linda, we brought your around because you have a pretty face and a fat ass. We never asked you to spew your nonsense.


Bill: No one? K, we’ll pick this up next year. Wheel your fat asses out of my office.

I’ve never felt like I was contributing to society by being a blogger more than I do today.

The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
