Burger King's Big King now with MORE meat than a Big Mac...

Burger King's Big King 'out-beefs' the Big Mac

Quote:
The No. 2 burger chain has just made its new Big King burger bigger than the Big Mac. And on Monday evening, it will start bragging about that in advertising.

The move comes three months after Burger King rolled out its Big Mac-buster, dubbed Big King. The enlarged Big King beef will weigh in, uncooked, at 4 ounces, vs. 3.2 ounces for the beef on the iconic McDonald's burger that it mimics, the Big Mac.

I saw the commercial and my exact words were:

"They are trying to steal the secret sauce from McDonalds".

McDonald's still rules the roost up here north of the boarder. We have the Double Big Mac with 4, 1.6oz patties.

When I see burgers on Triple D my mind boggles. Our burgers look like poor relations of yours.

I remember being in London, eons ago, when they opened up the very first McDonald's there. A well dressed gent came out with his Big Mac burger, took one bite, spat it out, and proclaimed that the Americans can have it. Along with a few British expletives.

I had a Wimpy (franchise) burger in London too, nothing to write home about.

Careful, Taxy. With this and your Greek pizza resto, you might be getting an unexpected visitor or two. Beagle and I may need to take a road trip.

Sounds good to me. I hope Beagle has good manners with cats. Be sure to come for the 2nd Wednesday of a month, so I can bring you to the Danish Club luncheon.

Like no one know it is really Thousand Island Dressing. Ooops! Did I let it out of the bag?

There is a reason I order a Jr. Whopper once a year. By the time I get down to the last three bites, I toss it.

Beagle adores cats. Cats do not adore Beagle.

Hmm. You, CWS, me, Danish Lunch Club.....
