Burger King Releases the Angry Whopper
Yesterday Burger King released the Angry Whopper in the US, a version of the Whopper topped with spicy crispy onions, jalapeños, pepper jack cheese, bacon, tomatoes, lettuce, mayonnaise, and spicy Angry Sauce. Visit the burger's official site Angry-Gram to send the subject of your anger a personalized message screamed forth from an animated Angry Whopper.
Although the marketing campaign behind the Angry Whopper gives the impression that eating it will result in your tongue being burned off, Marvo of product review blog (and AHT favorite) The Impulsive Buy says, "The only anger I get from the Angry Whopper is the anger I feel for it not being spicy enough." On a angry scale of one to ten, he gives it a paltry three. Despite the lack of its namesake spiciness though, Marvo still says its tasty and recommends trying it.
The Angry Whopper will be available until March 30, 2009 for $3.69. Double and triple patty versions are also available. The Angry Whopper is also sold in Europe, Canada, and Australia. [via Snackosaurus Rex]
