    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.

    Monday on CNN’s “Situation Room,” chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta following the White House coronavirus press briefing accused President Donald Trump of “telling one whopper after another” about mail-in voting. Acosta said, “Right at the end of that press conference, the president was just telling one whopper after another about mail-in voting. At one point saying that he doesn’t believe that the U. S. Postal Service has the ability to deal with mail-in balloting at election time. We just need to point out the U. S. Postal Service put out a statement late this afternoon that says, ‘The Postal...
  • Burger King addresses climate change by changing cows’ diets

    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...

    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,...

    Washington Examiner ^ | April 02, 2019 | Stephen Ken
    Wannabe regulators such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., have a tendency to get distracted by the small stuff when it comes to combating climate change. The rollout of Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal offered a glimpse into the strange priorities of the environmental Left in Congress. The proposals have been widely mocked, from the suggestion we move away from air travel, to phasing out combustion engines for cars, to the now-deleted language about limiting “cow farts.” Here’s the thing though: Those farts, AKA methane gas from livestock flatulence, are a large and serious contributor to climate change. But the government doesn’t...

    Burger King, whose quarter-pound Whopper pushed its competitors a half-century ago to create their own two-fisted hamburgers, now plans to roll out a vegetarian version of its signature sandwich, relying on plant-based patties developed by San Francisco Bay area start-up Impossible Foods. The Impossible Whopper will be introduced this week at Burger King restaurants in the St. Louis area — in the very state that last year banned the use of the term “meat” for any vegetarian or cell-based substitutes for animal-raised meats. No, this is not an April Fools’ Day joke. In fact, Burger King’s plan could be the...

    MIAMI — You don’t have to go to Japan to try Burger King’s black-bunned Whopper. Burger King is bringing it to the U.S. just in time for Halloween. “Something wicked is coming,” the burger chain on Twitter, with a brief promo video featuring thunder and lightning and a lunar eclipse, with a burger standing in for the moon. But it’s not just the color, insists Burger King. It’s also the flavor, with A.1. sauce baked into the bun. According to Burger King, it’s the sauce that turns the buns black. “While the pitch-black bun gives the Halloween Whopper sandwich a...

    From September 28 through Halloween Day, the burger giant is offering its popular patty sandwich inside a pitch-black bun that's flavored with A.1. sauce and sprinkled with white sesame seeds. The burger comes loaded with the usual Whopper fixings (melted American cheese, pickles, white onion, tomato and mayonnaise) but this one also has a dash of A.1. sauce—something I don't think I've tried in over 20 years. The verdict: it's kinda, sorta...well...okay, really good. The black bun has the squishiness of a Martin potato roll and a tiny hint of black pepper that's a good complement to the smoky charcoal-broiled...

    In what could be a first for a global fast food outlet, Burger King is making a bold proclamation in support of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community with the launch of a specially packaged burger. The "Be Your Way" project was created at a Burger King franchise in San Francisco, where a limited edition "Proud Whopper" sandwich was added to the menu to coincide with the city's annual pride festivities. According to press materials, guests who ordered the "Proud Whopper" found that the sandwich was the same as a classic Whooper, but came wrapped in a rainbow-colored...
  • Why a Burger King Whopper contains LESS calories than a restaurant salad…

    For those watching their weight, choosing a restaurant salad over a fast food burger may not be the wisest idea. A restaurant meal that includes an appetizer, salad entrée and one side can contain an average of 1,494 calories, compared to a greasy McDonald’s Big Mac Extra Value Meal that will set you back 1,130 calories, according to the Journal of Nutrition, Education and Behavior. […] A Burger King Whopper with cheese, for example, has 710 calories. Comparatively, an Applebee’s Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad contains 800 calories and an Applebee’s Cheeseburger will set you back 940 calories. Similarly, Chipotle’s Chicken...
  • Boy, 6, carrying Burger King bag mauled by pit bull in Queens

    A pit bull mauled a 6-year-old boy who was carrying a fast food meal as he walked along a quiet street in Queens Monday, police sources and witnesses said. The helpless boy was holding a bag with two Burger King kids meals inside as he walked near the corner of 140th Ave. and 156th St. in Rochdale about 5:30 p.m. The crazed canine suddenly broke free from its owner and attacked the boy, sources and witnesses said. The pit bull’s teeth tore into the child’s leg, and the beast wouldn’t let go. “The little boy could not stop screaming,” said...

    The price of many fast food items would tick up slightly if one assemblyman's bill makes it through the Nevada Legislature. Democratic Las Vegas Assemblyman Harvey Munford introduced Assembly Bill 122 during the floor session Thursday. The bill proposes a 5-cent tax, paid by the customer, for each item over 500 calories. Munford says he hopes the tax would deter people from eating out so frequently. He adds that the revenue would be directed to helping hospitals and improving Nevada's education system.

  • Burger King tests home delivery

    Can't make it out for a Whopper? Burger King just might bring it to you. The fast-food chain has begun delivering to homes in Washington, D.C., USA Today reports. If the test goes well, the King may expand the service to other cities. Home delivery has always been a challenge for the food and beverage business. Pizza restaurants obviously have found success, but burgers and fries don't hold up quite as well in transit. They also lose some appeal in the microwave. Finally, the size of a fast-food order isn't normally large enough to justify the expense of delivery. So...

    Not long ago, Newt Gingrich got into some trouble for claiming that the Palestinians are an “invented people,” although there is some basis for that statement, as prior to the British Mandate there was no such official designation for “Palestine” — and the British clearly included present-day Jordan as a major part of “Palestine” in the mandate. Another Republican candidate offered a history lesson on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in 2009, a moment recalled by Jeff Dunetz in this clip from the House floor. In it, we discover that Israel “started” Hamas as a counterweight to Yasser Arafat, or something, and...
  • Obama: I reversed recession until 'bad luck' hit

    At a town hall meeting on his campaign-style tour of the Midwest, President Obama claimed that his economic program "reversed the recession" until recovery was frustrated by events overseas. And then, Obama said, with the economy in an increasingly precarious position, the recovery suffered another blow when Republicans pressed the White House for federal spending cuts in exchange for an increase in the national debt limit, resulting in a deal Obama called a "debacle." "We had reversed the recession, avoided a depression, gotten the economy moving again," Obama told a crowd in Decorah, Iowa. "But over the last six months...

    While whining about his incessant criticism from conservatives and Tea Partiers at a fundraiser in Manhattan on Friday night, Obama played the MLK card. Indeed, he compared his suffering to Martin Luther King Jr.'s suffering. From Politcker: Standing in Weinstein’s basement, Obama said his troubles are like the ones facing Cuomo. “When I ran in 2008, I think that a lot of folks believed we elect Obama and suddenly we’re going to fix politics in Washington,” Obama said. “And Andrew is familiar with this, because everybody figures, well, we’re going to fix politics in Albany.” “And then it turns out...

    Search parties continue their wide-ranging efforts to find examples that support Maddow's claim. The dragnet is expected to continue indefinitely.MSNBC's Rachel Maddow made this apparently straight-faced assertion to media critic Howard Kurtz in a profile of Maddow he wrote for Newsweek and The Daily Beast. The specific quote from Maddow -- "I don't think I always fit the caricature of a liberal." Not surprisingly, Maddow cited no evidence (Snip)Begs the question -- how would you know the "caricature of a liberal" if you saw one?
