Click pic to view comments International sighting: Burger King "Brownie con Sandy"
Posted: 16:29 Fri 29-08-2003. Price: 2.50 (Euros). Location: Las Palmas Airport, Spain. Sub-flavours: none. Nutritional unusualness: Does not contain sand.
"Diarmuid Mallon" reports: Spotted this whilst getting a pre-flight burger before flying home on Air2000 (something which I can not recommend enough - have you seen their food?). Unfortunately I didn't spot this dessert until after my partner had joined the queue. Luckly after 10 mins she was still queuing, so I offered to take over - and then blamed my poor Spanish on why I had ended up with a dessert as well as going "grande" on my meal - oops! Anyway - the brownie was surprising good. Heated, moist and not too sticky with a rich chocolate taste. The "con Sandy" which SYSTRAN tells me is spanish for "with Sandy" was very watery ice cream, which the heat of the brownie melted too quickly. Worth ordering "sin Sandy" if you get the chance.

...Another intriguing discovery from Diarmuid there, though presumably if his partner ever stumbles across this site, he'll be in trouble! Anyway, in other fast food news, Fast Food Fever has the stories Woman's 13-Day Krispy Kreme Vigil Ends and Man Eats 16 In-n-Out Burgers, Provides Horrifying JPEG Evidence Of Doing So.

Comment: The burger scoffing gentleman actually ate 20 burgers - he ordered a 4x4 with 16 extra patties and cheese, bringing the total pattie count to 20.

Comment: I also spotted the 'Brownie con Sandy' from BK in Milan last month, now in a plastic pot - but didn't have time to order it as I was just getting a drink for the train. BK also had a variation on the McRib, with lots of peppers and it some reference to 007, but was beyond the 3 words of Italian I know.

Comment: you still see it advertised in some UK BK outlets (eg I think the one at the north end of baker street...) - surprised it never caught on in a bigger way

Comment: are bk still selling brownies? fuck sake man. i work for them & even i didn't know that

Comment: presumably franchisees are allowed to keep selling them (the flipside of "restaurant participation may vary"?) for as long as they can continue sourcing supplies?

Comment: BK in Brent Cross (3 weeks ago) was still selling the Brownies.

Comment: btw, i haven't seen that frozen Coke anywhere else - your pic is really good, "DM", but unfortunately it doesn't show what's actually inside the BK beaker (and after what happened to Piers Morgan, we all have to be extra careful there...)
