News: Burger King Offers Stuffed Bacon Burger and Donut Holes for Spring Menu

Along with their recent latte launch, Burger King continues their seemingly endless parade of limited-time items with an expansive spring menu they're calling "Burger Fest," which includes a bacon stuffed burger and new donut holes.

The full line up includes two hamburgers, three non-beef sandwiches, tots, a smoothie, iced teas, and dessert.

Here's the line up in detail:

The new Bacon Cheddar Stuffed Burger reminds me of the BK Stuffed Steakhouse Burger, and in the same vein features a ground beef patty interspersed with hardwood smoked bacon and cheddar cheese. Accompanying the patty are lettuce, tomatoes, ketchup, mayo, onion rings, and an artisan-style bun. Its suggested retail price starts at $3.99.

Nutritional Info - Burger King Bacon Chedar Stuffed Burger (245g)
Calories - 650 (from Fat - 350)
Fat - 39g (Saturated Fat - 12g)
Sodium - 1420mg
Carbs - 51g (Sugar - 10g)
Protein - 23g

There's a chipotle line up that includes a Chipotle Whopper, a Chipotle Whopper Jr., a Chipotle Chicken Wrap, and a Chipotle Chicken Sandwich. You can choose between Tendercrisp (crispy fried) and Tendergrill (grilled) on the chicken items. The suggested retail price for the Whopper version starts at $4.29, while the Whopper Jr. version starts at $2.49. The Chicken sandwich version comes in at $4.79, while the wrap version carries a suggested price of $2.99.

Regardless of whether you go with a sesame bun or flour tortilla, each features a spicy chipotle mayo, sweet "Caramelized style" onions, thick-cut bacon, pepper jack cheese, tomatoes, and lettuce. I have to admit I'm a bit confused with the "caramelized style' onions, which I take to mean that they added caramelized flavor to the onions without actually caramelizing them.

Loaded Tater Tots are made with a filling of potatoes, onions, bacon, and cheese, and covered with a crust of breading. They come in 8-, 10-, and 12-piece orders with a suggested retail price starting at $1.99.

The Turkey Burger comes with a ground turkey patty, lettuce, tomatoes, red onions and mayo on an artisan-style bun. Its suggested retail price is $3.99. Turkey patties are one of those "better-for-you" alternatives to a hamburger patty. Carl's Jr. has one on their permanent menu.

The Veggie Burger replaces the BK Veggie Burger and is pretty much the same thing but with red onions instead of white. It comes with a Morningstar Garden Veggie Patty, lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, ketchup, and mayo on a sesame bun for a suggested retail price of $2.99. Unlike most of the menu, the Veggie Burger is a permanent part of the BK menu.

Donut Holes are offered as a limited-time complement to Burger King's new coffee. They're bite-sized and glazed, with a suggested retail price of $1.49.
