A Hamburger Today Robyn Lee 1 comment

To celebrate their 5th anniversary, Burger King in Japan offered quintuple-patty Whoppers for only ¥550 (about $6.95), half the regular ¥1,100 price, from June 16 to 18. ...Yup, the three-day promotion ended today (or yesterday, if you're on Japan Standard Time), and to make things even more limited, the price only applied to the first 10 customers in each location who ordered the burger. But would you really have wanted to eat a budget-priced five-layer stack of Burger King patties? If our substandard experiences are anything to go on, probably not. More

Candy a Day: Whoppers

Sweets Christine Chung 28 comments

I grew up in a heavily sugar-regimented household, where candy was only allowed at special occasions, movie outings, and every kid's favorite holiday, Halloween. Thus, the fleeting sugar highs of my childhood were major occasions, and I still remember the first time I had Whoppers. On a whim, I decided at the movie theater concession stand to cheat on my tried and true favorite, Sour Patch Kids, in favor of the malty miracles that are Whoppers. More

Ed Levine's Serious Diet Ed Levine 23 comments

Mini malted balls can't inflict that much diet damage, can they? Well, that's what I thought when I reached for a good-sized bag of them at my local grocery store.

In Videos: Burger King's 'Polygameat' Ad

A Hamburger Today Erin Zimmer Post a comment

The practice of multiple meats, or "polygameat," may be offensive in some cultures, but I really don't think the bacon would get jealous if you skipped off with the pepperoni from time to time. It's the monogameat who really... More
