TMcDouble vs Buck Doubleoday’s journey included two stops at very popular restaurants, Burger King and McDonalds.  Burger King has had a recent initiative to go full-blast against McDonalds including their breakfast sandwich and the $1 Buck Double burger.  The target of the Buck Double is the $1 McDouble which recently replaced the Double Cheeseburger on the Value Menu.  Today I decided to do an official side by side comparison and here are the results.

Burger King BK Whopper Jr. Review

The Mighty Whopper Jr.The Whopper is as legendary as John Wayne (the burger version of John Wayne) and I love the commercials for the Whopper Jr.  Now it’s time for the official Whopper Jr. review.  Realizing that I’ve been a Whopper fan since birth (or as soon as I had teeth) I have to say that the easiest statement is that the Whopper Jr. is exactly the same as a Whopper, only smaller.  I was surprised at how much smaller (see picture) but it was just as juicy, wet and charbroiled as the original.  By wet I mean that the Whopper Jr. carries with it a juicy patty, great mayo sauce, shredded lettuce and great tomato that together make it completely edible without a drink.   That’s hard to do with a burger and one of the things I love about a summer Whopper Jr. Continue Reading

I think I’m turning Japanese, I think I’m turning Japanese, I really think so….or at least I’m thinking about it today.  Japan is the second largest economy in the world and even the burger gods know that.  Apparently Burger King is launching their newest burger there and went all out in Downtown Tokyo to promote this new Burger King Angry Whopper.  The idea: Scream away your frustrations for the chance to win a year’s supply of Whoppers. Can you imagine how much fun it would have been to be in downtown Tokyo, by a Burger King, and hearing people yelling things like, “I need a girlfriend” or “I need to pass my test”. Continue Reading
