The suggested retail price is $4.79, but my local Burger King has them for $4.99. Fortunately, Burger King has a buy one, get one free coupon online, so I tried both the grilled and crispy versions.
I'm not sure what "artisan-style" means. Artisan, or artisanal, bread brings to mind someone making bread slow and steady with great care, which doesn't really work if you have to mass produce tens of thousands of buns (or more) and get them to where they're going. Regardless, Burger King's artisan-style bun is similar to brioche bread though not quite as rich or buttery. It has a denser, more substantial feel than your standard burger bun, while still remaining soft. The density holds up better to sauces without soaking them in.
