Introducing the Burger King Chocolate Whopper

Burger King has announced their Chocolate Whopper and yes it actually looks rather tasty. The fast food chain published a video clip stating the release of the Chocolate Whopper, a dessert variation of its trademark Whopper burger “coming soon to your local Burger King. maybe.”

On paper, this may seem weird and perhaps even grosse. A chocolate hamburger? It simply does not feel like these two words ought to go together. At first glance seems downright absurd. But is it? We live in a world in which the Waffle Double Down is available. Are you saying folks would not get in line to eat the Chocolate Whopper?

Burger King begins with a chocolate cake bun, then adds a flame grilled chocolate patty, and then a slight raspberry syrup drizzle, followed by white chocolate rings to represent onions, topped with a few candied blood oranges instead of tomatoes, some milk chocolate shavings replace the lettuce, not to mention the vanilla frosting as the mayonnaise.

The King-sized advertising campaign also has made its way to Germany, Hungary, Lebanon, New Zealand, Russia, South Africa, and Sweden. A press release says, “Guests can only hope this delicacy will be available in restaurants and isn’t just an April Fools’ prank. Chocolate lovers will have to wait and see. Will they have it their way? Or will they keep dreaming?”

Now all the Chocolate Whopper needs is just some churro fries on the side . . .
