Default Burger King's New "French Fry Burger"



ABC – Burger King says it will start offering a “French Fry Burger” for a buck, as it looks to fend off McDonald’s aggressive push for its Dollar Menu.

The Miami-based chain says the burger will be available Sept. 1 through the fall, as it looks to drum up sales and customer interest with cheap new concoctions.

The burger, which clocks in at 360 calories and 19 grams of fat, is a relatively novel offering, but doesn’t require any extra investment from Burger King; it’s basically a standard beef patty topped with four of the chain’s french fries. The offering comes as fast-food chains jump through hoops to get customers through their doors, in large part by heavily promoting their cheapest eats.

Hot salty French fries dipped in ice cream. The salt and sweet mixed together are great.

Yeah. I think it's the texture more than the taste.

1.) It's not novel.
2.) How does it make them more competitive? Many people already do this themselves, and it's low-effort. I would rather have McDonald's fries in my burger.

We discussed this in my marketing class this morning. Did any of you know that Burger King delivers??? Like pizza or Chinese?? My professor brought this up today and all of us students thought he was joking.

BK is the nastiest fast food burger joint hands down (I have not tried Krystal so it may give BK a run for its money).

Next from Burger King-

The open face cheeseburger

Cut the calories, eat your burger on just the bottom bun.
