BURGER KING restaurants are unveiling the Angriest WHOPPER, a furiously delicious sandwich atop a fiery red bun, baked with hot sauce. The Angriest WHOPPER sandwich packs a punch in every infuriating bite with crispy angry onion petals, spicy angry sauce and zesty jalapenos piled high atop flame-grilled beef and layered with crispy bacon, melted cheese, iceberg lettuce, ripe tomatoes, and creamy mayonnaise between the red-hot bun.
To help unveil this product to the world, the BURGER KING brand invited volcano specialist, and co-creator and host of “Angry Planet” George Kourounis, to guide four of the biggest ANGRY WHOPPER sandwich enthusiasts from around the world on the adventure of a lifetime — the opportunity to flame grill the brand’s signature 100% beef patties over the angriest fire of all: fire retrieved from the depths of the raging Pacaya Volcano in Guatemala. Now, that’s the Angriest WHOPPER sandwich ever. The film of the adventure can be seen on BURGER KING Canada’s social channels including Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, as of March 31, 2016.
BURGER KING restaurants’ flavour-infused coloured buns started in Japan with the Premium Kuro black burger and followed more recently in 2015 with the red Samauri burger. Last September, BURGER KING restaurants in the United States and several other countries debuted the Halloween WHOPPER sandwich with a pitch-black bun. The sandwich became a huge hit. This year, the Angriest WHOPPER sandwich turns up the heat on the popular ANGRY WHOPPER sandwich, by layering on the spice and featuring the flaming red, hot sauce bun.
The Angriest WHOPPER sandwich will be available across the country as of April 4th for a limited time only in participating BURGER KING Canada restaurants.
