Sequel to the ANGRY WHOPPER® Sandwich Gets Even Angrier with Hot Sauce Baked into a Fiery Red Bun

Miami, FL  (RestaurantNews.com)  When you have a hit burger on your hands what’s the next logical step? An even more epic sequel. BURGER KING® restaurants introduces the furiously delicious Angriest WHOPPER® sandwich, a new take on the previous limited time only ANGRY WHOPPER® sandwich, amped up with a red-hot bun, flaming onion petals, spicy angry sauce and jalapeños packed into every infuriating bite. This alarmingly delicious burger is sure to disprove the commonly held belief that a sequel is never as good as the original.

BURGER KING® restaurants first debuted a colored bun in the US with the A.1. ® Halloween WHOPPER® sandwich with A.1. ® sauce baked into a pitch-black bun in the fall of 2015.

“Our A.1. ® Halloween Whopper with the black bun was a successful launch and our previous limited time ANGRY WHOPPER® sandwich was a hit with guests,” said Axel Schwan, Global Chief Marketing Officer for the BURGER KING® brand. “So, we’re combining the power of these past hits into a star-studded sandwich we think our guests will unanimously agree is the next must-eat burger.”

The Angriest WHOPPER® sandwich consists of savory 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 Angriest WHOPPER® sandwich will be available for a limited time at participating restaurants nationwide while supplies last for the suggested price of $5.49 or $7.49 in a combo meal with small drink and fries. For additional information, visit www.bk.com.

All mentions of A.1. refer to A.1.® Thick and Hearty Sauce, a product of the Kraft Heinz Foods Company.
