Burger King’s Brussels Sprouts Whopper
Dec 29th, 2010, 10:54 am
Publicity stunt, epic troll, or earnest attempt to get today’s youths interested in Brussels sprouts? You be the judge. Over the holidays, Burger King UK offered the limited-edition Sprout Surprise Whopper in select stores for the same price as a normal Whopper, explaining that “we wanted to create a recipe that would challenge existing sprout perceptions, and genuinely make sprouts a flavour to be reckoned with.” In addition to Brussels sprouts, the burger was topped with Emmental cheese.
In the words of a Scottish Facebook user commenting on Burger King’s page, “gads this must b some kind of wind up either that or u want clossed down ad want compo for eating that boke.”
