Never say never. The Whopperrito, a Whopper-burrito hybrid that was the product of a local franchisee and said to have a slim-to-none chance of a nationwide rollout, will debut at participating Burger King locations nationwide beginning Aug. 15, according to a release.
The Whopperrito features many of the same ingredients as a traditional Whopper sandwich, swapping out the mayo with a “creamy queso sauce” and wrapped in a flour tortilla.
“We’re infusing classic American fare with Tex-Mex flare,” said Alex Macedo, president of Burger King North America. “The Whopperrito is a new interpretation of the Tex-Mex trend in a way that only Burger King restaurants could imagine and uses the classic flame-grilled 100% beef Whopper sandwich meat to set this burger-burrito hybrid apart from other burritos out there.”
The Whopperrito will be sold for $2.99, or $4.99 when purchased as part of a combo meal.
