Burger King (Granville) - Whopper Meal

Believe it or not, I had never tasted a whopper sandwich prior to last Friday. In fact, I don't think I had ever eaten at a Burger King before that. But after watching the "whopper freakout" videos, I decided I had to give the famous burger a try.

Ok so I fell for the ad, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to try it once, especially with a $0.99 voucher for the whopper meal. The regular price is a whopping $6.99 which is more than I would ever pay for fast food. So here it is: the whopper sandwich with medium fries and a medium drink. I must be really out of the fast food loop because the medium fries looked more like a small to me. I think I heard something about North American fast food chains adjusting portion sizes in response to the issue of obesity and other health concerns. Sure, but that still looks like a small to me. One thing about the fries is that they had a very thick and starchy skin, so they stayed hot for a very long time. The flavour wasn't that great though, and I personally still prefer McDonald's fries.

In regard to the whopper, let's just say I might not have found it so bad if I hadn't watched the videos. I can't imagine why anyone would pay to eat this, let alone go crazy over its discontinuation. To each his/her own I suppose. The beef patty was extremely thin and dry. I had trouble believing it was flame-grilled because it really tasted no different from microwaved frozen patties.

In short, I will most likely never visit Burger King again. I think I'll stick to A&W for my fast food burger needs.

  1. The kidney transplant procedure involves surgically placing a healthy kidney from a donor into a recipient's body. It typically begins with thorough medical evaluations of both the donor and recipient to ensure compatibility and minimize risks. The surgery itself is performed under general anesthesia and involves connecting the donor kidney's blood vessels and ureter to the recipient's bladder and blood vessels. After the procedure, patients require close monitoring in the hospital for several days to watch for any complications. Post-transplant care includes taking immunosuppressant medications to prevent rejection, regular check-ups, and lifestyle adjustments to maintain kidney health. Successful kidney transplants can significantly improve quality of life and longevity for recipients.
