There are many reasons for the popularity of fast food. Unconscious mashups, incorrect holiday respects, and irreconcilable deviations from the restaurant’s main products are just a few ways fast food chains around the world embarrass themselves and make customers sick Bon Appetite.
This combo entry’s main point: Burger King is officially out of ideas.
In late 2014, Burger King Japan made two highly suspect decisions. First, it decided that “Berry Kristmush” was an acceptable marketing campaign slogan. Second, it decided that the lure of said promotion would be two of the oddest offerings in burger history.
First, the Berry Burger. It’s a hamburger that, per Eater, has “mixed berry sauce and what appears to be five carefully placed blueberries. Nothing screams “happy holidays” like warm, beefy fruit.” Indeed.
The Berry Burger’s Christmastime compadre was the Mush ‘N Cheese Burger, which is a cheeseburger with mushrooms on it. Otherwise known as a cheeseburger with a fairly common topping, renamed something completely revolting. Nice job guys.
Need another way to mask the inferior-even-for-fast-food flavor of your burgers? I know – hot sauce! Meet Burger King’s Angriest Whopper. Billed as a spicy spin on the BK classic, the burger featured jalapeno peppers, red buns with hot sauce baked into them, and the sexual-assault-sounding spicy angry sauce.
Unfortunately, Burger King couldn’t even do THAT right: Per FastFoodMenuPrices.com: “The word ‘angry’ is meant to give the impression of a spicy hot burger that will rile your taste buds … but the Angry sauce is more zesty… and the jalapeños are canned slices….Both left A LOT of spice to be desired.”
