Review: Burger King - Four Cheese Whopper

Burger King's Four Cheese Whopper features a quarter-pound beef patty, a slice of American cheese, a shredded, three-cheese blend of cheddar, Monterey Jack, and mozzarella, cheddar sauce, lettuce, tomatoes, and onions, on a toasted sesame seed bun. It's more or less a standard Whopper with extra cheese/cheese sauce.

It was $4.99 for the burger (which is 40 cents more than a regular Whopper in my neck of the woods).

Unsurprisingly, the Four Cheese Whopper tastes like an extra cheesy classic Whopper. When I popped the hood, I didn't really see the three-cheese blend but it may have just melted into the melted American cheese slice and/or cheddar sauce.

Rather than distinct separate cheeses, there was just a general cheesy flavor of mostly American with a hint of medium cheddar. I imagine just having two or three slices of American cheese would achieve most of the same effect though.

The cheesiness is buoyed by the absence of tangy combination of mayo and ketchup that you find in a regular Whopper.
The produce on this occasion was just okay; the lettuce lacked crispness and the onions were a bit stringy.

For a "fire-grilled" beef patty, it lacked any of the charred or smoky notes that usually accompany cooking over a fire. While thin, the patty filled the burger from edge to edge and delivered an enjoyable beef flavor.

Overall, Burger King's Four Cheese Whopper was pretty good. I don't think you can really go wrong with upping the cheesy goodness in a burger. It's a bit pricey for what you get though.
