Thanks Burger King


#1

the skeptic in me doubts this is anything beyond marketing and toying with "free range" terminology

It's a step in the right direction, even if the reasoning behind it is self-serving. Although unless I'm missing something there was no mention of free range, 'cage free =\= 'free range'.


#3

That's cool..I'll eat whoppers either way..


#4

i don't eat fast food, but I had a craving for BK couple yrs back, lived off that place in HS.... the burger was gross and sat like a brick, so disappointing


#5

Burger King...we know X by name.

"Oh hi, we saw you drive up so here's your order!"


#6

love Burger King. Had the Baconator one time... had the worst shits ever after that but it was so tasty.


#7

LOL at ONE Baconator stories.


#8

LOL...

I can only imagine... do tell.


#9

...it's not real unless a toilet gets clogged.


#10


here are my references


#11

That's because it's against your religion :stuck_out_tongue:


#12

exactly :wink: jehovasfitness.... part of my "food rules" though, just don't eat at them. Besides, I much prefer Panera Bread


#13

I had them make me an octo stacker before. The manager said it couldn't be done and I told her that it says I can "have it my way" ..they eventually did it...

It was greasy and delicious. And it fit my macroz. jerkssss


#14

I know this is a "Thanks Burger King" appreciation thread but I have to thank KFC! The other day I ordered a meal that has 5 bits of chicken. I said I didnt want the fries that came with the deal. Got an extra bit of Chicken for free! over 100grams of protein and 1000cals! "Mmmm, weight loss diet. Gahhhh!"


#15

Burger King helped me break out of 150. Those Hersheys Pies are the best.


#16

Somebody please correct me if i'm wrong but i do believe it is WENDY'S that has the "baconator" and not burger king.

I know because we had a food challenge at work once where you had to eat a TRIPLE baconator meal(with fries and drink) and a second triple baconator (alone)

Not much of a challenge IMO as there wasn't much volume...i was the only one to finish so i guess i could say there wasn't much competition either.


#17

We haven't got BK in our country (Belgium), but lately there's been rumours they might expand here. I believe it took so long because of another fastfood chain (Quick (http://www.quick.be/), very local) was part of the same group or something.

Anyway, when in Holland or Germany I'll try to get me a Triple Whopper every time. The only fast food chain I enjoy.
I live about 150m from a McDonald's.


#18

Haven't had burger king in a couple years but I am so trying this next time I'm there haha


#19

This is the point I was going to make. The ability to go outside and graze rather then being confined to a feed lot is worth extra money to me but "cage free eggs", nah.


#20

Impressive.
