This past weekend, I was driving home and noticed that the Burger King
near my house had a changed the message board underneath the Burger King sign. The message board read: "Try the NEW Chicken Whopper"
. Intrigued, I decided to try a Chicken Whopper for lunch the next day. I could barely wait until the next day to try this wonderful sounding sandwich
. Now I don't eat beef anymore, but I used to enjoy the conventional Whopper
. Ever since I stopped eating beef, I stopped eating Whoppers. Until now, I thought.
What a coup
! I thought that a Chicken Whopper was the same as a conventional
Whopper, bearing all of the same toppings, just with chicken instead of beef.
The next day, I went to the Burger King and could barely contain my excitement. I ordered a Chicken Whopper, and my girlfriend ordered a Chicken Whopper, Jr. After waiting for over 15 minutes, we were finally on our way. I couldn't wait to get home and unwrap the Chicken Whopper.
I got it onto the table, got myself a drink and unwrapped the Chicken Whopper. To my absolute horror, I had received a BK Broiler! No pickles, no onions, no ketchup!
I was furious. The girlfriend thought I should relax and just enjoy the BK Broiler. I jumped into the car, drove back to the Burger King and demanded satisfaction. The girl at the cash register asked:
"Can I help you"?
"You sure can", I replied. "I ordered a Chicken Whopper and got a BK Broiler".
rolled her eyes and said, "The Chicken Whopper is
a BK Broiler".
I still don't understand why Burger King thought it was necessary to change the BK Broiler's name. Furthermore, I would greatly enjoy a Chicken Whopper that is actually a "Whopper"!
