Review: Burger King - Southwest Bacon Whopper Jr.

Burger King's Southwest Bacon Whopper Jr. features a Whopper Jr. beef patty, avocado spread, bacon, seasoned tortilla strips, American cheese, lettuce, white onions, tomatoes, and creamy spicy sauce on a toasted sesame seed bun.

I bought one as part of a Your Way Meal for $6 (the price for just the burger at my local Burger King is over $6.59 so getting the meal is cheaper for more food).

The chips in my burger were soggy with just a slight crunch as they were mixed into the spicy sauce and melted cheese. It's one of those ingredients that really only work if you're eating the burger right then and there.

The veggies were very mild with plenty of lettuce but a lone small tomato slice and few onions.

The avocado spread added an appreciated, rich buttery quality that was lightly seasoned with some salt. The creamy spicy sauce added a surprisingly stiff punch of heat as well as a slight, savory smokiness. The bacon added another layer of smoke and was actually pretty crispy.

My beef patty was expectedly small but moist, while the accompanying bun was sadly untoasted.

Taken altogether, the Burger King Southwest Bacon Whopper Jr. turned out quite well. There was a good mix of rich, savory flavors and the general quality was pretty decent save for untoasted bun. I would note that it mostly lacks in a tangy department but I didn't mind it.
