Burger King brand has unveiled the Angriest Whopper, a delicious sandwich with hot sauce baked into the red bun. The Angriest Whooper sandwich packs a punch with every bite with crispy Angry onions, Angry sauce and zesty jalapenos piled high atop a flame-grilled beef patty, melted American cheese, iceberg lettuce, ripe tomatoes, and creamy mayonnaise between the red-hot bun.
To help launch his exciting product, the Burger King brand invited volcano specialist, and co-creator and host of “Angry Planet”, George Kourounis to guide four of the biggest Burger King enthusiasts from around the world on the adventure of a lifetime. They had the opportunity to flame grill the brand’s signature 100% beef patties over the angriest fire of all – fire retrieved from the depths of the raging Pacaya Volcano in Guatemala. Now, that’s the Angriest Whopper sandwich ever! The film of the adventure can be seen on the BURGER KING™ brand’s UK Facebook and Twitter.
Burger King restaurants’ flavour-infused coloured buns started in Japan with the Premium Kuro black burger and followed more recently in 2015 with the red Samauri burger. Last September, Burger King restaurants in a number of countries around the world, including the UK, debuted the Halloween Whopper sandwich with BBQ sauce baked into the pitch-black bun. The sandwich became a huge hit by adapting a curious-looking Japanese phenomenon for UK palates. This year, the Angriest Whopper sandwich turns up the heat on the Angry Whopper sandwich by switching up the bun for a flaming red, hot sauce bun.
The Angriest Whopper sandwich will be available in the UK from the 4th April until the 1st June, in participating Burger King restaurants.
