Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Burger King Six Pack Confirmed sighting: Burger King Six Pack
Posted: 18:01 Mon 28-Jul-2008. Price: 4.49 - but I used a voucher. Location: Burger King, Islington. Nutritional unusualness: 917 calories.
"robertster" reports: Had this a while back. Bit of a weird one. The bread seems to have been imported from a Dutch baker based on the wrapper - it does seem a bit specialist. By far the nicest of the burgers were the two "normal" ones with ketchup. The cheeseburgers (with no sauce) were far too dry with this type of bread and the cheese and bacon was completely ruined by BK's horrid BBQ sauce. Mind you, perhaps I just wasn't in the mood for eating the later flavours by the time I'd waded through to them. It seemed a nice idea initially, but it's not one I'll be repeating.

...Cheers "robertster" - with just a slight digression to say that BK's new Dark Knight Dark Whopper is, as far as I remember, identical to the Spider-Man 3 one from last year (and no Web Fries this time either). And it wouldn't be a BK sighting without a verdict from regular burger-correspondent "Wes", who maintains the 6-pack is: "Essentially 3 mini burgers stuck together (the 6-Pack comes from the fact that if you separate all the buns, you end up with six tiny burgers). It is arranged thusly: Burger 1 - pickles and ketchup. Burger 2 - cheese only. Burger 3 - cheese, bacon and steakhouse sauce. Keep in mind that this burger is intended to share and it doesn't become quite as artery-clogging as it sounds. This is available on its own, in a meal (with fries and a drink) or as a family bundle."

"The family bundle contains 2 6-Packs (12 burgers), 4 Drinks (or a large bottle of Coke/Diet Coke a la KFC's family buckets), 2 large and 2 small fries, Onion Rings and Chicken Strips. All in all, a hearty meal for any family. In conclusion, I would like to point out that, having never had the six-pack, I cannot comment on its taste mixtures. However, I can speculate that the plain cheese part may be a little dry, with no sauce and Irish cheddar cheese, much like the XL Bacon Double Cheeseburger has no sauce."

Comment: I can confirm that the Dark Knight Dark Whopper is indeed exactly the same as the Dark Whopper from Spider-Man 3's promotion. Although I suppose 'Bat Fries' may have been a better accompniment to the burger than the current Mozzarella sticks.

Comment: I can't imagine a fusion of Millionaire Shortbread, eggs and a baguette being very tasty...

Comment: Chilli Cheese Bites ARE great, and I must say I'm also looking forward to the Flame Grilled Ribs as well. I can imagine tose being quite popular.

From what I can gather, the poached aggs are a temporary replacement to the ommelette you get on breakfast butties at the moment. If they sell well enough then the replacement could become permanent, possibly to compete with McDonalds' breakfast menu. Also, the breakfast baguette seems to be pretty much the big breakfast butty on a baguette.

Still no info on the Meat Beast or Smoky BBQ, but I expect Chorizo sausage to be invlved somewhere.
