Burger King’s new Bacon King features two 1/4 lb flame-grilled beef patties, thick-cut smoked bacon, two slices of American cheese, ketchup, and mayonnaise on a sesame seed bun.
Some of you who have your insides partially flame-grilled because you’ve eaten a lot of Burger King, might be thinking to yourself, “Hey! Isn’t that just a Burger King Double Stacker without the Stacker sauce and with ketchup and mayo instead?” Not quite. This new burger uses Whopper patties, while the BK Stacker used the smaller beef patties.
Speaking of the Whopper patties, Burger King also introduced the Homestyle Cheeseburger that has the same toppings as a regular cheeseburger, but has a 1/4 lb flame-grilled beef patty instead of the wimpier patty.
