Burger King Releases Extra-Long Cheeseburger Slathered In Butter

While McDonald's is bringing its healthy game by introducing kale and quinoa bowls, Burger King is going back to its "greasy burger" fast food roots.The extra-long burger was first introduced in the summer of 2014, and is more like a cheeseburger hoagie than a traditional burger. Now the burger/hoagie hybrid is back, and this time it comes drenched in a garlic butter sauce.

The Extra Long Buttery Cheeseburger, which was launched nationwide this week, is made with two beef patties, buttery garlic sauce, onions, iceberg lettuce, ketchup, mayonnaise, and American cheese on a toasted hoagie bun. Some stipulate that the new menu item could be Burger King's answer to Jack in the Box's uber-successful Buttery Jack burger.

At 710 calories and 47 grams of fat, this burger is not exactly the healthiest option on the BK menu — it's approximately two days' worth of your recommended daily fat intake.  If you still want to experience the extra-long buttery burger yourself, they're available right now for $3.50 each or as part of the 2 for $5 value deal, but the menu item is not likely to stick around forever.
