The $1 French Fry Burger by Burger King is absolutely your money’s worth. It’s so cheap that it actually feels like a scavenger’s meal (the crow kind, or the human kind).
I’ve had grilled chicken sandwiches with french fries and cheese before and absolutely loved it. So I was really looking forward to this burger and maybe that’s why I was more disappointed than any other person. Expectations ruin reality.
I feel like BK realized that we identify the root cause of obesity, heart disease, cholesterol amongst other diseases as the oversized ‘murican meal. Now they’re just disguising that meal between two pieces of bread. Genius. Also, there are about four fries in every burger. And it’s so small right now that it has no hope of being revamped at all.
The regular lettuce-tomato-mayo combination works just fine- I have no idea whose idea the fries were. However, there is a definite positive impact on the environmental. At least BK will save the cartons they were putting the French fries in. That’s plus one for the environment.
There’s nothing stopping people who eat a meal to just stick their fries in there and experiment. Try the ‘French Fry Burger’ or stuff those fries into your burger (just for kicks), and tell us how you like it!
