When I was younger, I remember trying Burger King’s sweet and sour sauce and hating it. It was a transparent, orange liquid that wasn’t very good. I don’t know how accurate my memory was or if they changed the recipe, but I tried the sauce again recently and it was actually pretty good.
Normally, most sweet and sour sauces are mostly water, sugar and vinegar. The distinguishing characteristic is what else they add to it. In Burger King’s sauce, the primary additional ingredient is pineapple. There’s also a little apricot, but there’s more pineapple. You can taste the sweetness the pineapple offers, but you wouldn’t know it unless you looked at the ingredients.
Overall, the sweet and sour sauce was pretty good, but McDonald’s still has the best fast food sweet and sour sauce in my opinion. I don’t know what the ingredients are in McDonald’s sweet and sour sauce, but the taste and the consistency are just more appealing to me.
Jalepeno Cheddar Bites have been on Burger King’s menu for decades. They used to be called Jalepeno Poppers. Then they were taken off the menu. And then they came back. It’s a straight forward, frozen, deep fried snack. It’s not he greatest, however, you can get four for a dollar. With that price point, I almost always just buy some. It’s fried, spicy cheese. It’s completely unhealthy, but crunchy and cheesy.
Overall, this snack is just cheap enough to be worth purchasing.
Burger King’s Chicken fries are basically long chicken nuggets. They taste the same, offer the same texture and are priced about the same. At least when I purchased them, I used a coupon that priced them about the same. Even still, I think I’d rather just have nuggets because they are a lot easier to dip and eat in my opinion. It’s still mostly the same thing.
The Whopper is a surprisingly good burger, but I have to factor in a few things specific to my situation. Firstly, I usually never pay more than three dollars for a Whopper even though it is priced at over five dollars. If you use the app, there is almost always a deal for a Whopper for three dollars. Recently, every Wednesday they give out a deal where you can get a Whopper for two dollars. Even further, there is usually a deal in the app for a Double Whopper for also three dollars. It’s just good deals all around.
What I also like about the Whopper is that it feel like a big sandwich. When compared to McDonald’s Big Mac, it is at least a wider sandwich. The Big Max is still a taller sandwich. Overall, the Whopper still feels like a bigger sandwich, which is amazing considering that it is far cheaper if you use all the deals for it.
As for the taste, this is just a good burger. It’s a standard, fast food burger with ketchup and mayo (something I enjoy) and a ton of vegetables (lettuce, tomato, onions and pickles). This is another factor that makes it superior to the Big Max in my opinion because they dress up the Whopper so much in comparison.
Ultimately, if you want a Whopper, get the Burger King App and never spend more than three dollars for this burger again. Of course, this depends largely on where you live and what deals are available to you.
Burger King’s chicken nuggets are surprisingly okay. I’d say they taste slightly better than McDonald’s chicken nuggets. Most importantly, they cost less than McDonald’s nuggets. Both franchises near me sell a four-piece nuggets for a dollar. However, a ten piece nuggets at Burger King is only two dollars where a six piece chicken nuggets is three dollars and a ten piece is five dollars at McDonald’s. With the Burger King nuggets tasting slightly better to me than McDonald’s nuggets, there will never be a reason for me to buy chicken nuggets from McDonald’s instead of Burger King.
