    Somebody got burger all over this chocolate! According to various reports, a Burger King in Taiwan has released a Whopper with an unusual topping as part of a promotional event. Oddly enough, a similar burger was once joked about by Burger King for an April Fool’s Day gag. Burger King locations in Tainan City have reportedly debuted a Whopper topped with chocolate sauce as part of a promotional event, Kotaku reports. The burger is reportedly called the Hershey’s Chocolate Whopper and is, aside from the chocolate sauce, a typical Whopper.

    Ashley Mason, 31, was charged on Wednesday for her involvement in the death of Desmond Joshua, who had recently started working at a Burger King in Orlando. The Aug. 1 shooting followed an argument involving the Burger King’s manager, Joshua and a woman, whom police officials later identified as Mason. Police said Mason had allegedly grown irate over the long wait time at the fast-food restaurant’s drive-thru, where she ordered $33.11 worth of food. She was refunded her money and was ordered to leave, but not before she "threatened to bring her 'man' to the restaurant," the affidavit states....

    A woman who was upset that her Burger King order took too long got a man to come to the restaurant and shoot one of the employees, according to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office. -snip A witness said the restaurant was busy that night and the drive-thru was backed up, which caused customers to have to wait longer than usual. One woman who was in line was mad about the delay so she got out of her vehicle and began yelling that she was going to have “her man” come to the restaurant, so an employee refunded her $40 and...

    Burger King is staging an intervention with its cows. The chain has rebalanced the diet of some of the cows by adding lemon grass in a bid to limit bovines contributions to climate change. By tweaking their diet, Burger King said Tuesday that it believes it can reduce a cows’ daily methane emissions by about 33%. Cows emit methane as a by-product of their digestion, and that has become a potential public relations hurdle for major burger chains. Greenhouse gas emissions from the agriculture sector made up 9.9% of total U.S. greenhouse gas emissions in 2018, according to the Environmental...

    Friends, are you suffering from anxiety caused by the major problem of today: climate change? Well, your troubles are now over as the climate will stop changing thanks to Burger King's concern over amount of methane gas its cows emit. (There are cruder terms using simpler words for this process, but hey, we're wholesome.) Discovering that merely adding a bit of lemongrass to their diet reduces cow methane gas production, concerned Burger King executives altered the herds' diet, introducing their Reduced Methane Emissions Beef Whopper in select restaurants yesterday. This special Whopper will soon be available at a Burger King...
  • Burger King Makes People Wear Massive Crowns As Part of New Social Distancing Rule

    Burger King is in full-on preparation mode, getting ready for the inevitable day when economies around the world begin to reopen in a post-coronavirus world. One of those preparations include the introduction of massive paper crowns, big enough that it forces customers in the restaurant to stay six feet apart – the new norm experts say is most effective in helping stamp out the further spread of COVID-19. Currently, Burger King is testing the paper crowns in Germany, a country where the chain has approximately 700 locations. According to one Burger King spokesperson, the company is working on coming up...

    Fast food giant McDonald’s will open 30 drive-thrus next week — with plans for all 900 stores to be back in business by early June. The burger chain is opening 15 stores tomorrow for delivery only with next week’s larger opening an opportunity for them to test safety measures before a widespread reopening in the summer. High Street rivals Subway are opening 600 eateries today for third-party delivery and takeaway; and Burger King announced on Monday a further 35 branches are set to offer drive-through collection or delivery. When the McDonald’s stores reopen, there will be a £25-per-car limit, and...

    Drivers have queued round the block at the only Burger King drive-through open in the UK after health chiefs today warned that “worrying” data showed vehicle use was at its highest since lockdown began. Staff at the fast food restaurant in Havant were seen wearing masks and gloves over their uniforms as they handed burgers and fries to customers in Hampshire on Wednesday afternoon. It comes as the Director of Heath Protection for Public Health England (PHE), Yvonne Doyle, said there were more motorists than on March 23 — the day the lockdown started. She told the daily Downing Street...

    The conservative group One Million Moms is accusing Burger King of “crossing the line” over an Impossible Whopper commercial that uses the “D-word.” “Burger King is airing a commercial that uses profanity to advertise its Impossible Whopper — a burger made from plants instead of beef,” the group’s website reads. […] One man, completely stunned by the Impossible Whopper’s tastiness says: “Damn, that’s good.” Apparently the use of the "D-word" went too far for One Million Moms. “One Million Moms finds this highly inappropriate. When responding to the taste test, he didn’t have to curse,” the group said. “Or if,...

    Burger King was sued on Monday by a vegan customer who accused the fast-food chain of contaminating its meatless “Impossible” Whoppers by cooking them on the same grills as its traditional meat burgers. In a proposed class action, Phillip Williams said he bought an Impossible Whopper, a plant-based alternative to Burger King’s regular Whopper, at an Atlanta drive-through, and would not have paid a premium price had he known the cooking would leave it “coated in meat by-products.” The lawsuit filed in Miami federal court seeks damages for all U.S. purchasers of the Impossible Whopper, and an injunction requiring Burger...

    Burger King in South Africa is dropping the word “ham” from its menu, after adding bacon at some of its stores, in order to be respectful of Muslim customers. On Friday, the chain confirmed it has changed the names of three of its products. What was previously known as a “Double Spicy Hamburger” will now just be a “Double Spicy Burger”; the “Triple Hamburger with Cheese” becomes the “Triple Burger with Cheese”, and a “Hamburger King Jr.” on the kids’ menu will now be just a “Kids Burger”. The names are being changed “to be more respectful of” its halaal...

    Burger King employees apparently played a cruel joke and it cost them their jobs. A police officer in New Mexico posted a picture of a Burger King wrapper he claims to have received from a restaurant in Clovis. A cartoon pig is crudely drawn on the wrapper, and the photo bears the text, “When you order food in uniform.” Not only was the wrapper defaced, but the officer also claims that the food appeared to have been burned. The photo was uploaded to Facebook by Timo Rosenthal. He captioned it, “Well, while on lunch break (and in uniform) I ordered...

    Do you think you could tell if you’re eating real or fake meat? Burger King is so confident about its new plant-based offerings that as a part of a promotional campaign in Sweden, the fast-food chain is daring their customers to order from its new “50/50 menu,” meaning that Burger King will randomly select whether they get actual meat or plant-based patties in their sandwiches. “We are really proud of how hard it is to tell our plant-based burgers apart from real meat,” said Daniel Schröder, marketing director for Burger King Sweden, in a press release.

    While you were enjoying your Fourth of July weekend, I was attending a national conference on socialism. Why? Because socialism is having its moment on the left. Since there’s often confusion as to what socialism really is, I decided to attend the Socialism 2019 conference at the Hyatt Hotel in Chicago over the Fourth of July weekend. The conference, which had the tag line “No Borders, No Bosses, No Binaries,” contained a cross-section of the most pertinent hard-left thought in America. Among the sponsors were the Democratic Socialists of America and Jacobin, a quarterly socialist magazine. The walls of the...

    A heated exchange among two customers and the manager of a Florida Burger King who spoke Spanish in the restaurant was caught on video and viewed 22,000 times on social media. “Go back to Mexico if you want to keep speaking Spanish,” a woman is heard telling the manager as she and another woman are seated with her meal. “Guess what, ma’am? I’m not Mexican," Ricardo Castillo, who is of Puerto Rican descent, said. "You’re being prejudiced and I want you out of my restaurant right now.” Castillo is seen arguing with the women and defending his right to speak...

    City officials in San Antonio, who discriminated against Christian-owned Chick-fil-A in their airport contracting, are trying to hide from the public their conversations now that they’re under investigation for their behavior. WND reported in December the chain with the famed cattle urging “Eat More Chikin” has been forecast to leap past Taco Bell, Burger King and Wendy’s to become the third largest restaurant chain in the U.S. The liberal hatred for the chain erupted when Dan Cathy, the son of founder S. Truett Cathy, said in an interview in 2012 he supports traditional marriage. Since then, students on college campuses...

    No one is happy all the time. That’s the message Burger King is trying to communicate with a lineup of burger meals focused on “real” moods to help raise awareness about mental health. Timed to Mental Health Awareness Month in May, the “Real Meals” include the Blue Meal, Salty Meal, Yaaas Meal and DGAF (Don’t Give a F---) Meal. They include a Whopper, french fries and a drink. “Burger King restaurants understands that no one is happy all the time. That’s why they’re asking guests to order a Whopper meal based on however they might be feeling,” an online release...
