Confirmed sighting: Burger King Winter Whopper
Posted: 14:53 Wed 03-12-2003. Price: £3.99 for a meal. Location: Brighton Sea Front. Nutritional unusualness: MUSTARD??.
"chuck" reports: Well it seemed a good idea. Add more to the Whopper, add bacon, a sauce, pay less (it's on special offer) and you think you'd get more. But the sauce tastes of mustard, the burger collapses, it seems to repeat on you far more than a normal Whopper. Not good. And no camera so no picture. Sorry.
...And, just to add insult to injury, by the time I'd got down to my local Burger King to take a pic of the poster in the window, they'd all been replaced by ones advertising the reassuringly unappetising prospect of the new Chicken Royale "With Spicy Coating". So here's a window display of BK Jackets baked potatoes instead (which I've only ever seen in the branch across the road from Victoria Station). In other fast food fun: McDonald's have reintroduced the irresistible Terry's Chocolate Orange McFlurry, and withdrawn a misleading press advert for their fries - while Burger King came worst out of 10 in a wildly distressing recent US survey of "critical" fast food restaurant health and safety violations.

Comment: You must have gone to an appalling BK. The Winter Whoppers I've had have not fallen apart at all (unlike most of BK's stuff recently) and had a pleasantly overpowering amount of onion content.
Not quite as exciting as MacDonalds offering extra hash browns with breakfast meals for another thirty pence, but then I'm rarely up before they stop selling breakfasts, so they've probably be doing it since 1988 or something.
