Review: Burger King - Funnel Cake Sticks

Burger King's Funnel Cake Sticks draws you in with that carnival/circus/fair nostalgia and at least partially delivers on that promise.  Judging by their uniform shape,  I would guess these Funnel Cake Sticks are shipped frozen to BK restaurants and then deep-fried.  They feature deep-fried pancake-type batter shaped into skinny sticks, dusted with powdered sugar, and served with a sugary icing dipping sauce.

You get roughly nine sticks for $1.49.  The Funnel Cake Sticks taste like deep-fried pancake batter but could stand to be a bit more crispier.  They aren't too sweet since powdered sugar was used sparingly which is actually kind of nice.  For those looking for something sweeter, the icing is very sweet and has your sweet tooth covered.

Burger King's Funnel Cake Sticks probably taste better eaten dine-in as they cooled significantly on the 15-minute drive home.  They would probably look better too; a fair amount of the powdered sugar melted onto the sticks.  Still, $1.49 is not a bad price to pay for a bit of that carnival feeling.

  1. these are pretty good, although wish they would give more

  2. they are so skinny! Funnel cake should not be french fry-sized.

  3. @WW: I think you can get thicker ones at Hot Dog on a Stick! I forget how much they cost though... probably around two to three bucks.

  4. looks like it needs more powdered sugar!

  5. I thought these were disgusting (and I love funnel cake). It could be because my local BK seems to refuse to change the frying oil... anything fried has a 50-50 chance of tasting foul.
