Burger King’s Whopper-Burrito Crossover Is An Actual Thing

Burger King, the ultimate hail mary tossing fast food company, has stooped to an all-time low. According to a GrubGrade report, the Whopperrito — the intimate marriage of BK’s signature Whopper burger and their nonexistent history of selling burritos — was spotted as an actual menu item in the town of Hermitage, PA.

With Burger King apparently trying to hang in the neighborhood of fellow second-tier fast food chain Taco Bell by offering obscure combinations of normal hot food, the Whopperrito takes the cake here for the most ridiculous menu item ever created. When breakfast burritos became a national normality not too long ago, it made sense: all the ingredients you love in your greasy wrapped into one rational tortilla. Same goes for other portmanteau-friendly crossovers that Taco Bell has pulled out of their rears like the quesarito.

But Burger King is just straight up out-Burger King-ing themselves with this gag. You could argue this new low from its never-ending downfall began with this cringeworthy commercial from 2006 (which probably wouldn’t fly by the PC Police these days):

Keep doing you, Burger King. While upstart Chick-Fil-A is out changing the world with customer-friendly apps and free sandwiches (sandwiches that definitely don’t suck), you’re just putting one disgusting compilation of greasy pickles and room-temperature beef into a tortilla that nobody wants to even look at outside the context of breakfast or Mexican food.

Seriously, BK, stop screwing up good decent things or just go back to your shanties.
