Burger King in Canada is offering two new kinds of poutine (the Quebecois dish of french fries topped with gravy and cheese curds) in addition to their classic poutine for a limited time: Angry Poutine topped with jalapenos, crispy angry onions, and signature angry sauce (based on the Angry Whopper); and poutine with bacon. According to this press release, Burger King "hopes the new menu items will grow their 10 percent stake of total poutine servings from coast to coast."

Poutine is a common dish at fast food chains in Canada—McDonald's, A&W, KFC, and Harvey's sell it too—but out of those big chains it looks like Burger King is the only one putting more toppings on it. (I'm not counting the french fries-centric chain New York Fries.) Can't say we've tried any Canadian fast food poutine at AHT headquarters; anyone else?
