Burger King unveils the Angriest Whopper with a flavour-infused red bun (CNW Group/Burger King Canada)
Burger King restaurants have unveiled a new limited-time burger with a fiery kick, complete with a bright red bun that has hot sauce baked in.
Called the Angriest Whopper, the Burger King press release describes it as “a furiously delicious sandwich atop a fiery red bun, baked with hot sauce.” The Angriest Whopper sandwich also features “crispy angry onion petals, spicy angry sauce and zesty jalapenos piled high atop flame-grilled beef and layered with crispy bacon, melted cheese, iceberg lettuce, ripe tomatoes, and creamy mayonnaise between the red-hot bun.”
As a fun way to unveil this product, Burger King invited the renowned volcano specialist and co-creator/host of “Angry Planet” George Kourounis to guide four Angriest Whopper sandwich enthusiasts from around the world on a big adventure: the opportunity to flame-grill Burger King’s beef patties over fire retrieved from the depths of the raging Pacaya Volcano in Guatemala. The film of the adventure can be seen on Burger King Canada’s social media channels including Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
Burger King restaurants’ flavour-infused coloured buns started in Japan with the Premium Kuro black burger, followed the red Samurai burger in 2015. Last fall, Burger King restaurants in the U.S. and several other countries debuted the very popular Halloween Whopper sandwich with a pitch-black bun. And now, the Angriest Whopper sandwich is building on the popularity of the Angry Whopper sandwich by layering on more spice and adding the flaming red hot sauce bun.
The Angriest Whopper sandwich became available across the country as of April 4 for a limited time at participating Burger King Canada restaurants.
