Burger King’s Fiery New Whopper Comes on a Red-Hot Bun

Burger King

American customers will be seeing red at Burger King restaurants nationwide

Burger King’s U.S. restaurants are now offering a Whopper with red buns, the chain announced Tuesday.

In a news release, the chain says “the Angriest Whopper” will consist of “flame-grilled beef, piled high with thick-cut bacon, American cheese, iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, crispy onion petals, jalapeños, creamy mayonnaise and spicy angry sauce all layered between a fiery red bun that has hot sauced baked in.”

The limited-time menu item, which will cost anywhere from $5.49 and $7.49, has launched six months after the chain rolled out a burger with black buns with A.1 sauce baked in, following a test at Burger King Japan locations featuring buns, cheese, and ketchup made from squid ink and bamboo charcoal.
