News: Burger King - New French Fry Burger

Starting in September, Burger King will unveil their latest value-menu burger, the new French Fry Burger. Basically Burger King is offering to do for you something you might already do, which is to stick a few French fries (four according to the AP) inside of your burger.

Beyond the French fries, the rest of the burger is fairly standard: mayo, ketchup, lettuce, and a beef patty on a sesame seeded bun. Pricing on the burger will stand at $1 (may vary and will definitely be more if you live in Hawaii or Alaska), which is cheaper than the similar, but French fry-less, Whopper Jr.

I would point out that you're usually better off putting fries in your burger yourself since: A) you can easily put in as many as you want; and B) they start to get soggy fairly quickly inside the burger, which is especially a concern if you get your burger to-go.

  1. Good point about putting the fries in yourself.. that being said, for a value menu sandwich it's something different and a little interesting to me. Most of my favorite items at BK are the simpler value menu items, and if you don't let them sit too long they tend to be hotter than average in my experience.

  2. I think BK is running out of ideas on a new burger. Not much thought was put into this.

  3. It seems more like a value play that's very easy to implement with existing ingredients and sure to generate a little buzz for them.

  5. Unless it was cheaper I don't see any special reason to purchase or even why bother putting out since people might have been already. I don't even really see the value play with it at all since it's just a few fries and that's it. Perhaps if they had added something else that truly made it more exciting.

  6. Rally's already had a good one a while back. Even then it was better to get fries and a double burger and DIY. Also, usually photos make things look better than they actually are. 3 fries on a single patty burger? Not impressed.
