Burger King’s “Whopperito” Is a Thing, And We’re Terrified
Let’s say that you stopped into your local Burger King with a hankering for a Whopper, and discovered that you now have another option: a “burrito” that essentially takes all the components of a Whopper – burger patties, melted cheese, lettuce, tomato, diced onion, pickles, and ketchup – and rolls them up in a flour tortilla. Would you order it?
Well, if you happen to live in a few certain parts of the country, this is a dilemma you could be facing this very minute. Because the Whopperito exists, and it’s currently available in the area around Hermitage, Pennsylvania; in Warren, Ohio, and in a handful of Texas locations.
If you’re for some reason seriously fiending for this bundle of ridiculousness but don’t happen to have access to locations in those areas, you’re most likely out of luck. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it), a representative from Burger King told NBC News that this isn’t a national trial; A local franchisee decided to sell it on his own volition, and the odds of it ever receiving a nationwide rollout, or one that’s more expansive than the current rollout, are slim to none.
