Burger King is adding some class to their menu!
In response to other fast food chains adding premium, restaurant quality burgers to their menu, BK has unveiled the Chef's Choice burger. According to the company's website, the new burger is described as:
"A flame-broiled 5.5 oz burger patty, made with USDA certified ground chuck seasoned with salt and pepper, a thick slice American cheese, Naturally-smoked thick cut bacon, Fresh cut romaine lettuce, red onions and ripe tomatoes, our original grill sauce on an artisan bun."
Sounds like it might taste a little better than the standard whopper, but it's not much healthier.
The Chef's Choice has 650 calories loaded with 40 grams of fat and 1330 mg of salt! With 2,400 mg being the recommended daily serving of sodium, that's over HALF of your recommended daily intake!
Then again, since when has anyone eating at BK really cared about how much sodium they're digesting?
A spokesman for the fast food chain said, "The new BK Chef's Choice burger provides a premium, made fresh-to-order sandwich which brings a whole new level of excitement to our menu."
We're curious, but not that impressed. Will U be trying the Chef's Choice burger next time you have dinner with the King?
