Admission or advertising? Might try BK again if they offer horse meat whoppers. European fast food chains get all the good stuff.

Dang it, all this talk of non-beef meats has me hankering for a good, juicy elk and bear burger. Great combo of meats for a patty, wish I could get one right about now.

I guess its less *that* its a horse, and more of *which* horses, specifically.

Im bettin they're not Black Beauty.

Those trying to frame this as a health issue are being intellectually dishonest. Mammalian herbivore meat is mammalian herbivore meat.

The horses likely ate better than the cattle, too.

Dishonesty is dishonesty. Burger King should be taken to task on that alone.

Was the meat tainted or otherwise dangerous to eat?  If not, tsktsk for their dishonesty, but I'm having trouble caring beyond that.

They're very tasty actually. Spongier meat? Had it in Paris.

JasonOfOrillia: There's nothing wrong with horse meat.


Probably not, but when you buy a burger expecting 100% beef.. that's what you should be getting, right?

Also, if had known that Burger King uses horse meat in their burgers, I wouldn't buy it.

WhippingBoy: loonatic112358: thspunkymunky: Dragonflew: I just saw that they now have an avocado swiss Whopper. I don't care if it's platypus, I am trying that.

It's not nearly as good as the Angry Whopper. I'm not too keen on most fast food but I'll try anything spicy.
It's probably good that they stopped selling the Angry Whopper. My crohn's disease couldn't handle the grease or jalepenos much longer.

Oh I forgot that one, the mildly upset whopper


tamest "hot" burger i'd ever had

The only thing angry was me, after eating that tepid piece of false advertising.


For someone with GI issues that's about as much as I could handle without major problems.
It wasn't overly hot but the flavor was, for an easily found chain burger, pretty good. Especially with a side of sweet potato fries and the BK jalepeno BBQ sauce.
And far, far better than the flavorless turd that is the Hardees spicy Turkey burger.

Seriously though, I like Burger King even with a little horse. But have any of you tried the IHOP burgers lately? They are the smack the shiat out of your grandma of burgers. Good price too. This is the IHOP expert secret. Go to IHOP and get pancakes. French toast also works but costs more. Get one of their monster burgers to go and ask to take some syrup.

My favorite so far was one I had a couple of weeks ago, it was at the Taproom in San Marcos TX

The Hell Burger, two slices of jalapeno-jack cheese, covered in grilled onions, jalapenos & hot wing sauce.

I've eaten it (in France).  I thought it was delicious.  It's also really low-fat, and probably a lot healthier to eat than beef.


I've had horse steak many years ago in East Berlin.  It was lean, tasty and very tender.

I'm sure horse meat is delicious. The issue I have here is that this particular horse meat was most likely never intended for human consumption and has bypassed the health and safety requirements which ensure the meat is not infected or infested with parasites. The fast food industry has had a long series of nasty revelations about their food procurement and preparation practices and they don't have much further to fall, since most of their products are about one step above Soylent Green.

cant believe people.... sure horse meat is ok... WHEN YOU farkING ORDER HORSE MEAT.

If im paying for beef, it better be farking beef. If theres dog in it, horse in it, cat in it or anything like that, DUH you should have a problem with it DUH.

'Round here in Maryland, they used to sell the Steakhouse XT, which was essentially a nice, thick patty topped with cheese, french-fried crispy onions, and BBQ sauce, along with a bunch of other stuff I would tell them to hold because I really didn't care for it.  Yes, it wasn't good for me...but god damn, that was my crack.

They tried replacing it with something called a Chef's Choice Burger a couple of years ago after they stopped selling the XT.  That didn't last.  Nowadays, if I go there (which is a bit more often than I should), I just get one of their Double Stackers.  They usually do the trick.

12349876: Pin Fiften Clob: The fact that horse meat is so taboo boggles my mind.  I would personally not eat it, but I don't see what the big deal is.  I can understand the customers being upset since it wasn't advertised as such, but whatevs.

RealAmericanHero: I'm not sure why it's not okay to eat horses, to be quite honest.

I'd say cultural history like most other diets.  For horses, I'd assume it comes from at least in Europe from a sense that they were much more valuable for war and work and transport than being slaughtered.  The economic benefit turns into a moral edict and as a legacy of that with the horse we get people who take it to the extreme like the Amish who in many cases who love their horses for work and transport more than the modern stuff.


When in actuality it is just cheaper to keep cows and than horses.

You want a solid no frills steak then just about any cow that isn't sick or scrawny will do you good. Horse needs to be fed a good diet just to make it acceptable or it will be even greasier than it already normally is. And finally cows don't care to run, horses love to run. Running is bad for meat.

All in all, I prefer cow over horse unless said horse was crippled from birth and raised on the finest grains and oats.

SlothB77: I have a brother-in-law who had a severe allergic reaction to horses recently and couldn't explain it.  He lives in NYC and had no contact with horses.  If he ate BK right before the reaction, boy does he have a potential lawsuit.


Why? Has he eaten horse meat before? dander, hair and other airborne allergens are not the same as meat consumption into the human digestive system.

So, when they said that it was all beef, they were just telling a whopper?
 
2013-01-31 09:38:27 PM  
Horse meat is probably the cleanest meat you could possibly eat.  If I had known that is what BK is using in their burgers, I'd be eating fastfood there.

rhondajeremy: I don't care about the horsemeat.  I have been able to eat there in years anyways, the food is so disgusting (as well as Wendy's & McDonalds in my opinion)


McDonald's has been junk for quite a while.  The last burger I had from them was loaded up with so much toppings and a weird-looking, mustard-like sauce.  All this, to hide the fact that their beef obviously comes from whatever they can scrape off of the bottom of the barrel after the rest of the food industry has picked out their selections.  Chicken nuggets and breakfast is still decent, though...for now.

Wendy's was decent up until about a year or two ago, when they decided to go full derp on the grease and butter.  I'm completely convinced that they keep their buns soaking in a hot butter bath - it's rare that I eat there because of that.

Real fans don't call it Game of Thrones.
