Sounds terrible.  Like pedobear food.

Looks worse.

Wait, what? I'll have to try it tomorrow.

Um...why does this surprise you, subby? It would never sell here in the US. The segment of the population that might think that sounds remotely appetizing would never eat anything from Burger King, and the segment of the population that regularly eats at Burger King would never order something like that.

It's not the first time. They did this a few years ago, too.

I hate Burger King, but if I were to ever try something like that, I wouldn't be able to tolerate the cinnamon, lettuce, or god forbid a pickle, on the sandwich. Cinnamon is due to my Sjogrën's, btw, its become so bad lately that I can't even eat chocolate without some discomfort.

/le sigh

But you can enjoy an apple, right? Everyone loves apples.

a larger sandwich with two apple slices and hollandaise sauce.


Um... No. The other one actually sounds interesting though. I would try for sure.

I'll keep my money thank you very much.  If I ever go to Japan I am certainly not going to eat at a Burger King.

When I'm back on the coast next week I'm going to try that bacon in side the burger creation from Jack in the box I saw during the superb owl.

If you do come, and you're in Tokyo, you'll want to try Monjya Yaki.

If you hit Osaka, try some kushikatsu.

And if you're in Niigata, just eat the rice.

Why so closed minded? It might be good! Don't you think it's worth at least trying it once?

I do.
 
2014-02-07 10:17:30 AM
Sounds OK. I'd try it at least once. But if you haven't had apple sauce with your pork chops, you're doing it wrong.

Beef and mustard, chicken and 11 secret herbs, rosemary and butter on your baked potatoes. Traditional food combinations are the work of centuries of experimentation.

I don't trust Burger King. Especially in a country where they eat ketchup rice and mayo pizza.

I'll be glad when this "dessert-fused-to-main-course" fad is over. If I wanted fruit with my meal, I'd flag the g'damn dessert trolley over to my table.

A quick GIS search shows 13,500,000 results for "grilled apple burger".  This is not new and sounds awesome to me.  Add some bacon and cheddar and I'm ON IT.

Yeah everybody! Don't forget do glover lives in Japan! Like you WISH you did! Remember that every time you think about Japan!

Nope.

I used to kind of love Whoppers. No ketchup, and I'd pull about half the onions off, it was a guilty pleasure. But starting about 12 years ago they made me physically ill enough times that I only risked it maybe once a year, if that.

And there's no reason to go there anymore, ever, having found infinitely better burgers conveniently located pretty close to where I work and in my neighborhood..
 
2014-02-07 10:53:23 AM
Huh.  Sounds like it could work.

And of course it's only in Japan.  Fast food in America is generally terrible, and almost universally boring.

Booger Fling did do a jalapeno burger thing a while back that I tried.  It was edible, but just barely.
 
2014-02-07 10:53:47 AM
Submitter sounds like a foodie douchebag.

I'd rank cinnamon mayo right up there with  chocolate covered broccoli as a food combination that they
serve on the buffet line in Hell.

AND DON'T GET ME STARTED ABOUT F**KIN' PINEAPPLE ON PIZZA!!


Pineapple in a main dish is actually pretty ok if it's chopped into little pieces and paired with a very salty pork. Like a ham with very thin pineapple circles on top, and whatever that weird red sauce my mom used to make was. A pizza with bacon, ham, and pineapple is pretty tasty, but only if you include all three of those ingredients together.

I forget the name of the cultivar but I'm pretty sure I saw on the History Channel that all the pineapples grown for cultivation are identical clones. My grandma used to have this little paper cookbook from the 50s published by Dole in her kitchen that introduced housewives to the pineapple and taught them to prepare it and ideas for cuisine, and I'm pretty sure I remember most of the recipes involving ham.

what the hell makes you think that Americans who eat at Burger King wouldn't order a triple whopper with onion rings and bbq sauce on it? have you ever been to America?

Unwarranted hostility aside, I'd agree with the outlook on cinnamon mayonnaise.

Burger King is getting desperate. They've been steadily losing market share for three years now. They're going to go broke if they cannot turn things around.

Yeah, Burger King has been running ads here for their chicken sandwiches.  Doesn't even look appetizing on TV.

I would try DR. DAWG before a Brewer game...but, the Miller Park bathrooms are already pretty gross.

I would hit a sushi bar for every meal and eat whatever they put in front of me.

That's an OK concept for a burger, but you know BK is going to ruin it with inferior ingredients and overcooking.
 
2014-02-07 11:28:48 AM
I am not going to eat at Burger King, but I may have to try this out at home minus the cinnamon mayonnaise. I like cinnamon in chili but something about mixing it with mayonnaise sounds unpleasant.

I would.  I am not a regular visitor to Burger King, but then again I am not a Whole Foods/Trader Joes fanatic.  It sounds tasty.

Since this is a burger thread, I'd like to mention the mortadella burger I ordered last night from a local place.  Basically a half pound burger with an Italian sub on top of it.  It was full of win.
 
2014-02-07 11:37:43 AM
A couple of days ago I had a pizza with gorgonzola, prosciutto, arugula and caramelized pears with a balsamic glaze for sauce ...it was farking delicious.
