Starbucks isn't the only chain that released an over-the-top, limited-time menu option this week, because Burger King has just debuted its all new Steakhouse King burger, and it is sure to give all you bacon lovers out there a reason to dig into your wallets and shell out some cash for dinner.
The Steakhouse King sandwich comes with not one, but two whole quarter-pound, flame-grilled beef patties (which are actually just the same patties you can get on your Whopper, but still) as well as three half-strips of thick-cut bacon, a generous pour of A.1. Thick & Hearty sauce, crispy onions, gooey and melted American cheese, and then finally a serving of mayonnaise all on a sesame seed bun, according to Brand Eating.
The Steakhouse King is set to retail at around $5 or $6, depending on where you pick yours up, and clocks in at a whopping 1100 calories, which is possibly more than half of your recommended daily intake, if you're not getting in any exercise and are an adult human!
That's not all: Each Steakhouse King also has 74 grams of fat, 1,620 milligrams of sodium, 59 grams of carbs and 50 grams of protein from all of that meat.
Not exactly a health food, people.
If you're in the U.K., and you really can't pass up a burger with bacon, consider ordering Burger King's very similar burger, the Steakhouse, which features most of the same ingredients, minus the mayo, one beef patty (do you really need two?), and with Western BBQ sauce rather than A.1.
If you order the plain old Steakhouse, you'll save near to 400 calories, 400 milligrams of sodium and 30 grams of fat, but still get that indulgent, meaty sandwich you've been craving.
What do you think? Have you tried either of these two extra meaty Burger King offerings, or are you more of a veggie burger or chicken-fries type of fast food consumer?
