FAST FOOD NEWS: Burger King Extra Long Buttery Cheeseburger

BK Extra Long Buttery Cheeseburger2

The first of, perhaps, many Extra Long sandwiches Burger King will introduce this year is the Extra Long Buttery Cheeseburger. (They rolled out five variations last year.)

The new addition features everything the regular Extra Long Cheeseburger has — two beef patties, onions, lettuce, ketchup, American cheese, and mayonnaise on a toasted hoagie bun — but it also includes a buttery garlic flavored sauce.

It appears Burger King’s latest menu item might’ve been inspired by Jack in the Box’s Buttery Jack line that features melted garlic herb butter.

The burger has 710 calories, 47 grams of fat, 15 grams of saturated fat, 1.5 grams of trans fat, 90 milligrams of cholesterol, 1250 milligrams of sodium, 46 grams of carbohydrates, 9 grams of sugar, and 26 grams of protein.

If you’ve tried it, let us know what you think of it in the comments.
