It’s actually the husband’s fault for dragging me there in the first place. He was in the mood for a Whopper (ewww) and that’s when I remembered someone tweeting about the BK Veggie Burger. They told me it was tasty, and I said, “Really?”
So now I’m dabbling in fast food doldrums for research purposes, but I almost couldn’t find the damn thing on the menu. BK apparently makes it hard for people to order their (healthy?) food. I almost gave up until I found it in really fine print in the abyss section of the menu. You would have to possess the superhero optic nerve of a Wander-Woman/Incredible-Sulk hybrid love child to read it. Unless, of course, you opt for the stealth vision of a peeping tom.
But alas! The BK Veggie burger is cheap – only $2.49 – so I took it home and began to chew frantically (Whaaat? I was hungry.)
Whatever happened to flamed broiled!? I think this slab of faux puppy meat was over-microwaved because the edges were cardboard-ish in texture. Yet once I got past its borders and finished b!tching about all the mayo they slathered on it, I determined the sammich to be ahhhh-mazing. It’s thick and hearty with quality taste.
That can’t be right. I had to go online to find out more about this thing. And you know what? BK is actually pimping out Morningstar Garden Veggie Burgers and calling them BK Veggie Burgers. I’m glad they’re selling Morningstar, but the entire sammich has got enough sodium to replenish an entire village of electrolyte-deficient cave dwellers. That’s too bad.
They’re still good, though. <— do not read
