FAST FOOD NEWS: Burger King Philly Cheese King


The Nightmare King isn’t the only new burger from Burger King this month. The fast food chain also introduced the Philly Cheese King, or as I want to call it, the Philly CheesestaKing.

But, that’s dumb name because there’s no steak involved with it. It’s just like Burger King’s 2016 Extra Long Philly Cheeseburger. The Philly Cheese King is just two 1/4 lb. flame-grilled beef patties, American cheese, caramelized onions, and American cheese sauce on a toasted sesame seed bun. If you want carbs that’s fancier than that bun, the burger is also available with a toasted sourdough bun.

The Philly Cheese King has 900 calories, 55 grams of fat, 26 grams of saturated fat, 3 gram of trans fat, 210 milligrams of cholesterol, 1600 milligrams of sodium, 47 grams of carbohydrates, 1 grams of fiber, 7 grams of sugar, and 56 grams of protein.

  1. I don’t know why……but for some reason this actually sounds pretty awesome. Sautéed onions, beef, american cheese and cheese wiz………not really a bad thing.

  2. I thought so too Matt, but an hour after eating it I was on the toilet texting a warning to my brothers. First off, I almost never eat fast food, so my discomfort is totally on me for suspending judgment on this occassion. The heavily salted meat & cheese really takes you beyond your daily nutritional requirement. I also have reflux, so it makes me all the more culpable for the subsequent distress I experienced. I could only finish a little more than half of it, so I offred the rest to my dog. He ate half of what I gave him,but left the rest on the floor. The triggering of my reflux began to escalate with every belch forcing me to taste it again and again. 2 days later I found myself in an ambulanc & ER for suspected heart attack. Ultmately I was discharged with an esophageal spasm…long story short, if you’ve conditioned your digestive system to fast food, you might be ok eating this. Might even like it. If you haven’t, buyer beware…it might kill you!
    BTW…I’ve eaten many a real cheesesteak with np problems

  3. I tried the Philly and regretted it. On first bite as I bit into it, the onions were so thin you couldn’t bite through them. I ended up pulling out a glob of them and tried to get them in my mouth to chew. But they are so paper-thin they won’t chew. I tried swallowing only to find that some of the onions stayed in my mouth and the rest headed down my throat. It was like swallowing a bunch of hair. Needless to say I gagged until I could get them swallowed. I tried another bite thinking if I bit harder the onions might seperate. Instead, I ended up pulling the rest of the onions out of the sandwich. It was a mass the size of a gold ball. Save your money. The taste of the cheese is pretty bad as well.
