Burger King sent people to McDonald's for 1-cent Whoppers — and it was a massive success for the fast-food chain

Burger King sent people to McDonald's for 1-cent Whoppers — and it was a massive success for the fast-food chain Surprisingly, the bizarre deal was a success, as roughly 4 million people downloaded Burger King's app between October and the end of December.

Burger King is bringing back the Angry Whopper, laden with jalapeños and "angry sauce."Some people dip a chip in medium salsa until its slightly tinted pink, without tomato chunks, and brace themselves as they graze the tortilla surface with only their front teeth. Others want ghost pepper juice squirted in their eyes during sex… Or at least the maximum possible heat in their Burger King order.

Well, this fiery subcategory of humanity is in luck, because Burger King is bringing back the Angry Whopper, a less flamboyant version of their 2016 release, the “Angriest Whopper,” which featured a hot sauce-infused, flaming red sesame bun. The Angry Whopper has a normal bun, but spares no taste buds with its topping of jalapeños and “angry sauce.” The burger itself is a quarter pound of flame-grilled beef, and other sandwich toppings include lettuce, crispy onion petals, mayo, and thick-cut bacon.

Burger King’s Whopper Is Going 100% Meatless With Impossible Burger Patties

Burger King’s Whopper Is Going 100% Meatless With Impossible Burger Patties Burger King has gone to great lengths to keep its signature Whopper sandwich fresh and exciting in recent years -- everything from serving it on alarmingly red (or black!) buns to stacking literally eight slices of cheese on top. Now, the royal burger slinger is unleashing a new take on the iconic, 62-year-old burger in an extraordinary move to keep up with today's tastes. It's called the Impossible Whopper, and unlike every Whopper before it, it's 100% meat-free. As in the burger patty is made with plants, not beef. Yes, for real. BK officially unveiled the Impossible Whopper on Monday, but it's no April's Fools Day joke.

This aggravated cheeseburger is available as part of the $6 King Box, which contains a main sandwich, fries, a drink, and a sweet treat. The Angry Whopper costs almost $6 alone, but if you’re really not trying to get the King Box, it costs only $3 if you order through the BK app.

Heads up, this thing will only be around for a short time at participating BK locations. And you should maybe try your friend’s first if you’re feeling Spice Anxiety.

NYC Burger King has been passing off beef as Impossible Whoppers.
People abstain from meat for plenty of reasons—ethical, dietary, religious—and for many, this choice is a serious one. That makes this news of a Burger King in Brooklyn, which admits to serving regular beef burgers to customers who’d ordered vegan Impossible Whoppers, more than a mere mix-up. Eater reports the Burger King at 736 Broadway in Brooklyn has for weeks been filling Seamless delivery orders for Impossible Whoppers with regular Whoppers, asking the Seamless driver to inform the customer of the switch.
