Burger King's spicy new Angriest Whopper kind of scares me
Burger King is launching a new burger at the end of March, and to be honest, this one looks like it has a little something special.
The chain has been shilling novelty buns in Japan for years, but now spice lovers in the USA have a chance to take a bite out of the bright red, hot sauce-flavored bun of its new Angriest Whopper sandwich.
The burger is made with bacon, jalapeños, crispy onion petals and "spicy angry sauce," all nestled on top of a red, hot sauce-infused bun.
Honestly, finally getting the chance to try a novelty bun excites me (BK did have a black A.1-flavored bun during Halloween, but that was a little too gnarly to entice me), but the burger sounds... actually spicy? Usually fast-food items that claim to be spicy are anything but, but with the triple threat of jalapeño, angry sauce and red bun, the Angriest Whopper may stand a fighting chance against spice lovers' favorite foods. I'm kind of scared to try it, to be totally honest.
Add bacon, beef and crispy onion to all that spice, and you have a burger that could pack a pretty powerful flavor punch. Pro tip: This is probably not something you want to eat within 24 hours of going out on a date.
The Angriest Whopper will be available at Burger King locations in the U.S. for a limited time starting March 31. Get your antacids ready, folks.
