Review: Burger King - Angriest Whopper

Burger King's new Angriest Whopper features a flame-grilled beef patty, thick-cut bacon, American cheese, iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, angry onion petals, jalapenos, mayo, and spicy angry sauce on a red bun that had hot sauce baked into it.

I bought one for $5.49.

If you've had an Angry Whopper before, the Angriest Whopper contains the same ingredients (save for the habanero cheese) but with the addition of the bun.

The bun was a bright red that reminded me of a mushroom in Super Mario. Inside, the crumb was almost neon red. In texture, it seemed softer and moister at the surface than the standard Whopper bun. There's a definite heat to it but no added flavor otherwise.

The Angry sauce came across quite strongly with a substantial spicy kick paired with a sweet and tangy base. Unlike a lot of fast food spicy sauces, there doesn't appear to be a mayo base to it but there is mayo in the burger separately.

The pickled jalapenos similarly packed a solid kick along with a sharp sour bite.

The batter on the onion petals was thoroughly soft but I liked the slightly seasoned fried batter and onion combination. There was just a touch of heat to the petals.

The lettuce quality was marginal with mostly wilted leaves that offered little in the way of crispness. The tomato fared a little better but wasn't great either. The jalapenos actually offered the most watery crispness here (at least on this occasion).

The beef patty was moist enough and delivered a steady beefiness throughout the burger despite its relative thinness. The cheese also came through well.

The bacon was very nicely crispy but was light on smoke and flavor.

Overall, Burger King's Angriest Whopper turned out pretty well for me with a lot of punch in the heat department. That being said, in terms of spiciness, I'm not even sure it's an Angrier Whopper let alone the Angriest one. I guess the Reddest Whopper wouldn't have been as catchy... The Red Whopper has a nice ring to it though.
