News: Burger King - New BK Minis

After doing away with their (relatively) short-lived Burger Shots, Burger King is returning to the mini-burger game with their new BK Minis which are mini-burgers that come with either flame-grilled beef or white-meat chicken mini-patties.

BK minis are available in 4-, 8- and 12-packs at a suggested retail price of $2.99, $5.99 and $7.99, respectively, at participating restaurants nationwide.

BK Burger Minis feature mini fire-grilled beef patties, dill pickles, and ketchup on a warm, soft bun.

While BK Chicken Minis feature mini white-meat, breaded chicken patties, dill pickles, and mayo on a warm, soft bun.

If you're wondering how they the BK Burger Minis are different from Burger Shots, they don't have mustard by default but I'm sure you can have them add it for you.

  1. I'm sure it is hard to split up a regular burger into 2 or 4 pieces.  I think that may be a selling point - Have four little burgers or four chicken sandwiches for two kids!!  I know if I had little kids I would buy these.

  2. If you're on the road I agree. I can see how it's nice from a psychological perspective too. It feels better to have your own little burger if you're a kid.

    Beyond that though, I've cut a fast food burger in half with a knife a few times, it's not hard at all. Plus, you could just pay like a dollar more and have 4 regular burgers (still small ones, but not this small). That would be my preferred choice. Novelties are well and good though, to each his own.

  3. I would squirm in delight to view a cost-comparison breakdown between the newest rendition of the "mini burger" and a regular-sized burger; if it was possible.

    A value-versus-cost effort.

    Available information would allow that despite not knowing the actual cost of materials to the manufacturer; Burger King.

    Maybe a new outlet will be needed to market an entire line of reduced-size fare.

    Burger Prince?

    Burger Serf?  Burger Peon?

    I kinda' like Burger Bum.

    "Eat at Burger Bum!!! Yum in your tum!!!"

    Oh yeah!!!!

    I can smell the cash pouring in already!!!

  4. The crazy thing is, you can get a regular burger at my BK for 89 cents. So why pay 75 cents per burger for a 4 pack? It should be 50 cents a burger at the most. So $2.00 for a 4 pack. I'd be alright with that price.

  5. No offense bro but I'm pretty sure Burger King knows a little more about making money than you do.

  6. I'm sure they do too, I think Burger King's a good company. Actually part of the point is they probably are going to make a great profit margin on these. They can make that money at the expense of someone else though. I'll stick with a hamburger, or single stacker, etc.

    I was so sad when BK got rid of the Burger shots, so I'm really happy they brought back what is essentially the same thing. I don't really care about the cost v. value - I just like the novelty of eating small sandwiches.

    It was nice that BK let me mix and match the chicken and beef, so I got two chicken and two beef mini burgers with cheese. Although I probably won't get the chicken ones ever again (I don't care for their breading spices), I'll get the beef ones while they're available!

  8. 420 and 20 grams of fat for the burger and 810 and 58 for the chicken (both 4 packs?) Strange...
