FAST FOOD NEWS: Burger King Extra Long BBQ Cheeseburger

Burger King Extra Long BBQ Cheeseburger

Do you miss Burger King’s Rodeo Cheeseburger? Well, the Extra Long BBQ Cheeseburger will hopefully fill the hole that’s been in your heart since it was removed from BK’s menu. The burger features two fire-grilled beef patties, American cheese, crispy onion rings, and BBQ sauce on the same toasted sesame seed hoagie bun used with BK’s Original Chicken Sandwich. It’ll be available for a limited time.

The “Extra Long” name has been used by Burger King in other countries and an Extra Long Rodeo BBQ Burger was available in the Netherlands in 2011 and in the U.K. in 2012.

The Burger King Extra Long BBQ Cheeseburger has 590 calories, 28 grams of fat, 11 grams of saturated fat, 1.5 grams of trans fat, 1080 milligrams of sodium, 62 grams of carbohydrates, and 22 grams of protein.

Burger King Orange Freeze

Burger King is also offering an Orange Freeze for a limited time, which seems to be a frozen treat similar to BK’s Frozen Lemonade. A medium serving has 260 calories, 0 grams of fat, and 64 grams of sugar.

Subway Honey Sesame Steak Melt

North Central West Virginia is where Subway is testing their Honey Sesame Steak Melt. According to Jeremy, who sent in the photo, “It’s a choice between the (sliced) chicken or steak and the only the different is the ‘honey sesame sauce’ which is best described as like a peanut type of sauce, something you would get with Chinese food. Basically a new sauce is all it is, but a very good one.” (Spotted by Jeremy in Fairmont, West Virginia.)
