As a kid, the Whopper was the “adult” hamburger. I mean, it was….a WHOPPER after all. Who the hell could eat something that large— other than an adult?
A few years later and as a teen – one of them and some onion rings was fuel for staying up all night and
chasing chicks catching up on homework.
As an adult (stop laughing I am – in theory) I find this is no longer my go-to burger. It’s close to 3.50 for the burger by itself – and when I can get a double-cheeseburger for 1.49— you do the math.
I also enjoy the other burgers – like Smashburger, Five Guys, etc…and they are only a couple of dollars more.
This past weekend I dropped by a local BK and was reminded it has been years since having a WHOPPER. So I ordered one. Stale bun. Meat was barely warm to the touch, The cheese was good though. I was severely disappointed. I turned the car around to take it back and see drive-thru with 8 cars and a line inside as well. Guess it will be a long while before I try one of these again. Sad, really.
