With Burger King's long history of pumping out frankenfoods, it was only a matter of time before this happened.
After unveiling the Whopperito on innocent Americans, Burger King is now reinforcing that it is, in fact, the king of culinary monstrosities.
Allow us to formally introduce you to Burger King’s latest foray into unnecessary food hybrids: a steakhouse burger topped with Doritos.
Per The Street, the folks manning the test kitchens at Restaurant Brands International -- incidentally, also the owners of Burger King -- are testing out their new burger on unsuspecting customers in Spain.
The burger comes with two meat patties generously smothered in American cheese. Not only does it come with all the usual fixings (think lettuce, tomato, and mayonnaise), but it is topped with a handful of classic Doritos, which somehow manage to maintain their crunch and resist getting soggy under the weight of tomatoes and lettuce.
While a spokeswoman for RBI did not return a request for comment, The Street reports that an alternate source close to the matter said that the new burger is actually a limited-time offering, and will be available at all Burger King establishments in Spain until Nov. 21.
As it happens, Spain is actually one of Burger King’s largest European markets, which explains why the chain has decided to run its promotional offer over there; however, I don’t think any of us would be surprised to see the steakhouse/Dorito chimera making its way over to U.S. soil if the test run goes well.
This is the land of the Mac N’ Cheetos, and home of the Whopperito, after all.
