Burger King French Toast Sandwich

I am human.

I have faults, like sometimes not using a plate to eat toast, not wearing underwear because I’m too lazy to do laundry, or always using the handicap restroom stall, even if all the other stalls are empty.

I have idiosyncrasies, like making smiley faces with my fingers on the fogged up doors in the frozen food section of the grocery store and putting stuffed animals in provocative positions whenever I’m in a toy store.

I also have fears.

Believe me, I have many fears. For example, spiders, mutant killer rabbits, Naomi Campbell holding a cell phone, the Whitney Houston’s song “I Will Always Love You,” women who wear jackets with huge shoulder pads, being in the audience of a hip-hop awards show, Scientologists, and rectal thermometers.

However, perhaps my biggest fear right now is waking up with The King.

Not Elvis or B.B. King. I’m talking about this guy on the right.

Can you imagine waking up next to The King with that big smile on his face?

If I were to wake up with The King, the first thing that would pop up in my mind is, “Am I The Queen?” Then the next thing I would wonder is, “Why is The King smiling at me?”

Now when a guy wakes up next to a woman and she has a big smile on her face, that probably means she got some sweet, sweet lovin’. Of course, I’m assuming this because that’s never happened to me. If I were to wake up next to The King with a big smile on his face, all I would hope is that it wasn’t because of sweet, sweet lovin’.

So I am afraid of The King and I feel the only way to prevent me from waking up with The King is to eat breakfast at Burger King. It’s much like how I’ll try products to please the Advertising Gods, so that a product’s irritating commercial will go away.

(Note to self: Remember to pick up Ice Breakers Ice Cubes to help get rid of the Duff sisters Whoa! commercial.)

So recently I tried the new Burger King French Toast Sandwich, which consists of two slices of cinnamon and maple-flavored French Toast bread (which look like hash browns), one folded omelet egg, melted American cheese, and either bacon, ham, or sausage.

The concept is very similar to the popular McGriddles breakfast sandwich from McDonald’s, which uses pancakes instead of French toast. I decided to try the sausage one, since that is the one thing I am not hoping for if I wake up next to The King.

The first thing I noticed about the Burger King French Toast Sandwich was how small it was. It was about four inches in diameter. However, the same can be said about the McGriddles.

The French toast bun wasn’t fluffy like normal French toast, instead it seemed like they were deep fried. Heck, the eggs were fluffier than the French toast bun. As for the taste, I liked it very much. There was a nice combination of sweet and salty with every bite. Unfortunately, because of its size, there weren’t many bites.

So now that I’ve had my Burger King breakfast I hope I won’t be waking up with The King with that big smile on his face. If I do, I really hope he’s smiling because he either put a Sharpie pen mustache on my face or put my hand in warm water while I was asleep.

  1. I live 13 degrees from the equator…no way in hell the ice cream would last long enough to roll like sushi.

  2. Hrm. I think the new Burger King commercials are hysterical. Maybe it’s a high-schooler thing. I completely agree with you about those gum commercials, though. And I’m amazed that you can still walk with a lead ball like that sandwich in your stomach, let alone run.

    Also- why is she THE Whitney Houston, hm?

  3. The Cap’n Crunch cereal is pretty good. Pretty different than the Reese’s PB cereal, believe it or not.

    I was gonna mail you a box but you’ve got one already… awaiting your heady review!

    To be honest, even after all my years on Urth, clowns scare me… therefore i spell the word as Klown whenever possible…

    The letter “K” is big Hawaii, too. Yet another reason to love it!

  4. thanks for reviewing this…I’ve been tempted to try it, but I’m just not sure! I like french toast and eggs separate, but the thought of them in the same bite scares me. weird, I know…

    P.S. The King scares the bejesus out of me!

  5. The King is freaky. I avoid Burger King due to fear that they’ll start have a employee wear the costume as some misguided promotional event…. Breakfast of choice now being a steak egg and cheese bagel from Dunkin Donuts. Damn, now I’m hungry, off to the 24hr DD!

  6. Chana – Aaah, just like a true monarchy!

    Toni – I don’t know if your dog would attack The King successfully. He would probably throw one of his meaty sandwich to distract your dog.

    The King – Don’t forget your Whopper!

    Gia on Guam – That’s what the walk-in freezer is for.

    Tristyn – It’s THE Whitney Houston because I have bad grammar and if I don’t add “THE” Whitney will attack me with her crack pipe. 🙁

    Karen – The cereal was so-so. So is the letter K. Oh wait, your name starts with a K. K is one of the greatest letters ever, because you can’t write “totally killer” without it.

    Webmiztris – You could separate the French toast and eat that separately with syrup. Or throw it at The King if he’s staring at you.

    Barb – If only I knew where the Dunkin’ Donuts were on this island. They closed the drive-thru one near my place. Damn you Dunkin’ Donuts! Damn you!

  7. ^^^ I would assume it’s a heart attack on a bun, but you can look to see if it’s on burgerking.com

    This look absolutely revolting. That’s all I have to say.

  8. leonard – I don’t think BK.com has the info, but Slashfood came up with an estimate of the nutrition info for this. You can see that here.

    Sarah – It looks revoltingly good. 😉

  9. Andy & Lou – I’m sure he haunts the minds of many people — and clogs the arteries as well.
