    Just ate a plant based "impossible whopper" from Burger King. They got the texture of a burger right but the burger leaves a nasty after taste and a nasty after smell.

    Burger King in South Africa is dropping the word “ham” from its menu, after adding bacon at some of its stores, in order to be respectful of Muslim customers. On Friday, the chain confirmed it has changed the names of three of its products. What was previously known as a “Double Spicy Hamburger” will now just be a “Double Spicy Burger”; the “Triple Hamburger with Cheese” becomes the “Triple Burger with Cheese”, and a “Hamburger King Jr.” on the kids’ menu will now be just a “Kids Burger”. The names are being changed “to be more respectful of” its halaal...

    Burger King employees apparently played a cruel joke and it cost them their jobs. A police officer in New Mexico posted a picture of a Burger King wrapper he claims to have received from a restaurant in Clovis. A cartoon pig is crudely drawn on the wrapper, and the photo bears the text, “When you order food in uniform.” Not only was the wrapper defaced, but the officer also claims that the food appeared to have been burned. The photo was uploaded to Facebook by Timo Rosenthal. He captioned it, “Well, while on lunch break (and in uniform) I ordered...

  • Burger King thinks it can fool its Swedish customers with its plant-based patties

    Do you think you could tell if you’re eating real or fake meat? Burger King is so confident about its new plant-based offerings that as a part of a promotional campaign in Sweden, the fast-food chain is daring their customers to order from its new “50/50 menu,” meaning that Burger King will randomly select whether they get actual meat or plant-based patties in their sandwiches. “We are really proud of how hard it is to tell our plant-based burgers apart from real meat,” said Daniel Schröder, marketing director for Burger King Sweden, in a press release.

    While you were enjoying your Fourth of July weekend, I was attending a national conference on socialism. Why? Because socialism is having its moment on the left. Since there’s often confusion as to what socialism really is, I decided to attend the Socialism 2019 conference at the Hyatt Hotel in Chicago over the Fourth of July weekend. The conference, which had the tag line “No Borders, No Bosses, No Binaries,” contained a cross-section of the most pertinent hard-left thought in America. Among the sponsors were the Democratic Socialists of America and Jacobin, a quarterly socialist magazine. The walls of the...

    A heated exchange among two customers and the manager of a Florida Burger King who spoke Spanish in the restaurant was caught on video and viewed 22,000 times on social media. “Go back to Mexico if you want to keep speaking Spanish,” a woman is heard telling the manager as she and another woman are seated with her meal. “Guess what, ma’am? I’m not Mexican," Ricardo Castillo, who is of Puerto Rican descent, said. "You’re being prejudiced and I want you out of my restaurant right now.” Castillo is seen arguing with the women and defending his right to speak...
  • San Antonio officials want to hide comments condemning Chick-fil-A

    City officials in San Antonio, who discriminated against Christian-owned Chick-fil-A in their airport contracting, are trying to hide from the public their conversations now that they’re under investigation for their behavior. WND reported in December the chain with the famed cattle urging “Eat More Chikin” has been forecast to leap past Taco Bell, Burger King and Wendy’s to become the third largest restaurant chain in the U.S. The liberal hatred for the chain erupted when Dan Cathy, the son of founder S. Truett Cathy, said in an interview in 2012 he supports traditional marriage. Since then, students on college campuses...

    No one is happy all the time. That’s the message Burger King is trying to communicate with a lineup of burger meals focused on “real” moods to help raise awareness about mental health. Timed to Mental Health Awareness Month in May, the “Real Meals” include the Blue Meal, Salty Meal, Yaaas Meal and DGAF (Don’t Give a F---) Meal. They include a Whopper, french fries and a drink. “Burger King restaurants understands that no one is happy all the time. That’s why they’re asking guests to order a Whopper meal based on however they might be feeling,” an online release...

    Wannabe regulators such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., have a tendency to get distracted by the small stuff when it comes to combating climate change. The rollout of Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal offered a glimpse into the strange priorities of the environmental Left in Congress. The proposals have been widely mocked, from the suggestion we move away from air travel, to phasing out combustion engines for cars, to the now-deleted language about limiting “cow farts.” Here’s the thing though: Those farts, AKA methane gas from livestock flatulence, are a large and serious contributor to climate change. But the government doesn’t...

    Burger King, whose quarter-pound Whopper pushed its competitors a half-century ago to create their own two-fisted hamburgers, now plans to roll out a vegetarian version of its signature sandwich, relying on plant-based patties developed by San Francisco Bay area start-up Impossible Foods. The Impossible Whopper will be introduced this week at Burger King restaurants in the St. Louis area — in the very state that last year banned the use of the term “meat” for any vegetarian or cell-based substitutes for animal-raised meats. No, this is not an April Fools’ Day joke. In fact, Burger King’s plan could be the...

    Tomayto, tomahto — to “uh oh.” One Michigan woman landed herself on the wrong side of the law after throwing a violent fit in Burger King, reportedly because the burger she ordered from the chain had tomatoes on it, much to her dramatic dismay. Porsha Tyler stormed into a Livonia Burger King and demanded a cash refund, WXYZ reports, as the burger she ordered included tomatoes, which she clearly did not want. The incident occured on Jan. 27. According to the outlet, the woman brought the sandwich with her and things quickly took a turn for the worse.

    WOOD VILLAGE, Ore. - A man from Portland, Oregon says he was trapped in a Burger King bathroom for more than an hour and was promised free burger meals for life in settlement over the ordeal, but now he says BK isn’t holding up its end of the bargain, so he’s suing the fast food restaurant. Curtis Brooner said he used the restroom at a Portland Burger King on Dec. 15. But when he tried to get out of the room, the door would not open, KOIN reported. Brooner said he had the receipt from his meal and called the...

    Video & picture @ link. A black Burger King employee who went on a racist rant against a Hispanic couple she assumed was white didn't have it her way after she was terminated from her fast food job last month. The shocking dispute broke out between the employee and a man and woman waiting in a North Miami Beach Burger King drive-thru October 3. The cellphone video has since gone viral. It seems the customers requested a refund for their order after a manager touched her phone while handling their food. The employee, unwillingly to work with the pair, shamed...
