Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Burger King Warm Apple Pie/ Strawberry Cheesecake/ Double Chocolate Twist Confirmed sighting: Burger King Warm Apple Pie/ Strawberry Cheesecake/ Double Chocolate Twist
Posted: 22:07 Tue 01-Apr-2008. Price: 0.99-2.29. Location: Wigan. Sub-flavours: With or without ice cream (Warm Pie only), with or without hot drink (Chocolate Twist).
"Wes Jones" reports: Burger King's new desserts menu. Aside from the ice cream desserts and rather bland Diddy Donuts (with their ever decreasing choice of sauce list - used to be three, now only one), BK have discovered that they needed more dessert choices after all. Let's kick things off with the Apple Pie. If you're expecting anything like Mr. Kipling's, think again. This is a segment of Bramley apple pie, with large chunks of apple covered with a lattice pastry. This is served either hot or cold (unlike McDonald's, this is microwaved rather than deep fried). The hot variety can also be served with a generous helping of ice cream for an extra 30p.

The Strawberry Cheesecake is basically the creamy part of the cheesecake, infused with swirls of strawberry sauce on a biscuit base. The overall texture is quite dry though, so you may need a drink to accompany this. Finally, the Double Chocolate Twist. With a flaky pastry similar to that found on a Fray Bentos tin pie, and melted chocolate injected into the grooves, the overall effect of this dessert is sweet AND savoury. Rather bland on its own, but accompanied with either Cappuccino or Hot Chocolate it is delicious. The prices, even though they seem high, are reasonable considering Burger King's recent price uppage. Keep your eyes on me for any new Burger King products as well.

...I'm kind of assuming this is the same "Wes Jones" here, with Burger King's own version of what "third base" is like. Elsewhere, Ginsters are getting into microwavable ready meals, and I haven't yet got up early enough to confirm the non-April-Fool-status of the McDonald's Breakfast Wrap which "DM" claims: "Seems to have appeared in Manc over the last 2 weeks - noticed it initially as a friend was at a cash point and I was NOT looking at his PIN, there was a poster in the Mac window (2pm by then) ...then an ad in my partner's free paper this week - seems to be a tortilla wrap containing a split in 2 'patty', plus egg AND hash brown!! It's got me anyway - I'm getting one."

Comment: The Mcdonalds breakfast wrap is real but is only being tested in Manchester at the moment while in Liverpool they are testing McGriddles
