Confirmed sighting: Burger King Angus Mini Burgers
Posted: 20:08 Fri 11-Jul-2008. Price: From £1.49. Location: Wigan. Nutritional unusualness: "No artificial preservatives, colours or flavours", "Mature Irish Cheddar cheese".
"Wes" reports: Here we have Burger King's summer promotion. Mini Angus Burgers, to deliver the taste of Angus beef to the children. The Mini Burger is, in itself, quite small. It's about 3" long and is perfect for a snack (like McDonald's snack wraps) or in a kids' meal. You get 2 small buns stuck together, with the mini Angus beef patty (shaped like the Chicken Royale) inbetween, with 2 pieces of Irish Cheddar and ketchup. I've only ever had one, and it was filling enough, although it could have tasted less like the ordinary cheeseburger.
...Well, that (partly) clarifies what the kid's doing with these in the photo - "Wes" also provided a detailed description of the remarkable-looking Angus 6-Pack Meal ("essentially 3 mini burgers stuck together"), but hasn't tried the product yet so we'll save that for a later date. In other special sauces: if you missed the headlines, Heinz have released a range of
Deli Mayos (in Caramelised Onion, Roasted Garlic, Sundried Tomatoes, Moroccan Style, and Predictable Controversy), while Subway's new Reggae Reggae Chicken Sub is alright, but not enough to tempt me back since they axed their £1.99 "Sub Of The Day".
KFC's hash-brown-containing BBQ Bacon Boxmaster is, indeed, much heavier than you'd imagine, but McDonald's have ignored the edict that everything has to have bacon in it with their Summer Supreme ("100% beef patty, cheese, tomato ketchup, pickles, onions, tomato, crisp Batavia lettuce and mayo in a cheddar cheese topped bun"), which is - startlingly - much more like a BK Whopper than the vast majority of Burger King products nowadays.

Comment: A friend had the Summer Supreme and it looked great - just like a Whopper and much better than my limp quarter pounder.

Comment: I had the summer supreme, but have to question if the price difference compared to the qurter pounder is worth it. The supreme burger alone is the cost of an extra value meal. Is some extra bit of salad and some melted cheese really worth it? I say no.
Like I said I did have it and the cost of a supreme meal cost almost a fiver.
