Back in May, I noted that Burger King had begun selling the Angry Whopper in Europe and questioned when we in America would get access to this delicious sounding burger.Â The answer: it has arrived.
As of January 5, 2009, you can now buy the Angry Whopper at Burger King until March 30.Â So what is the Angry Whopper? It’s a Whopper with spicy crispy onions, jalapeÃ±os, pepper jack cheese, bacon, tomatoes, lettuce, mayonnaise, and spicy Angry Sauce. Yum. As I’ve said before, jalapeÃ±os and a little spice makes almost anything better, although I’m skeptical as to what exactly a “spicy crispy onion” is.Â Also, is the bacon really necessary? Wouldn’t this be just as good without it?
The new commercial for the Angry Whopper has to be one of my favorite Burger King commercials of late, featuring onions “born from fertile soil…but raised on anger” by, who else, a sadistic farmer.
To promote it, Burger King has also created an Angry-Gram website, where you can fill out an “Angry-Gram” letting people know they annoy the hell out of you:
Impulsive Buy has already reviewed the Angry Whopper, giving it a 7 out of 10 and calling it “damn tasty.”Â However,Â they note it wasn’t as spicy as they hoped:
The only anger I get from the Angry Whopper is the anger I feel for it not being spicy enough. The red Angry Sauce was more peppery than spicy, the onion rings tasted normal, and the pepper jack cheese produced jack shit in terms of spiciness. The pickled jalapeno was the only ingredient that produced any spicy heat.
On an angry scale of one to ten, with ten being Naomi Campbell beating your ass with a cell phone for not ensuring her Starbucks order was at her desired temperature of 63 degrees Celcius and one being an even-toned â€œIâ€™m disappointed in youâ€ from your laid back parents who donâ€™t really believe in discipline, the Angry Whopper was a three, or a quick Three Stooges-esque slap to the head.
I haven’t eaten a Whopper (or any fast foodÂ burgers for that matter)Â in ages, but I can’t wait to try one.
