Burger King is offering new, low-fat french fries in locations across the country, in a move that the chain hopes will increase Burger King’s appeal with healthy eaters. The new Satisfries (did you groan too?) apparently contain 40% less fat than McDonald’s fries, but they still have 190 calories per “value-sized” order. Of course, not everyone seems to be treating the new Satisfries as a healthy snack. Anybody think these will actually catch on? source

theweekmagazine:

Why Burger King’s French Fry Burger is a bust
A regular burger + 4 french fries = a burger and fries, apparently.

Let’s take a product that any fast food consumer could already make themselves if they wanted to and save them the modest amount of work it would take to create the product. Check.

digg:

So Jeep was hacked. 

Fun fact, @LilInternet, the person ostensibly behind both this and the Burger King job, has #SEAPUNK in their bio.

That we get to enjoy this two days in a row makes this a fun week indeed.

We’re hearing reports that the @BurgerKing twitter account got hacked, but we’re not seeing any problems over this way. Are you?
EDIT: The Wendys’ social media person weighed in:

And to answer your question, the account has finally been suspended. Took long enough.
EDIT: And McDonald’s has responded, offering condolences to their competition.

No word on whether Long John Silver’s will offer their input.

Burger King’s new bacon sundae: Meaty, not the worst thing you can eat
Burger King added several new items to its summer menu this week, most notably this vanilla sundae with hot fudge, caramel and yes, bacon. The meaty new treat has 510 calories which, we’d like to point out, is nothing compared to what ice cream professionals like Cold Stone Creamery can dish out. Yes, that is a 1,720 calorie frozen treat you’re looking at. It’s good to be the king. (photo via AP) Source

Burger King testing home delivery.  Would you use it?

We’d use it to order burgers that we’d have them deliver to random addresses. Seriously, though, they’re taking the second-laziest food in the world (after pizza) and giving it a home-delivery element. Not bad, BK.

McDonald’s, Burger King turn on a dime to beat Happy Meal law

  • problem In San Francisco, it’s now illegal to include free toys in fast-food meals that don’t meet certain standards for nutrition. This is a problem for McDonald’s, which sells a lot of Happy Meals for this reason.
  • workaround So … rather than just get rid of the toys altogether, at least two fast-food outlets — McDonald’s and Burger King — plan to simply charge a tiny nominal fee for the toys. One dime. Boom. source

Don’t know how we missed this, but: It appears that Burger King was one of the targets of last week’s Occupy Oakland protests. We understand the basic sentiment here, but … Burger King? There are better targets, such as banks.

"The King" is dead: Burger King retires its creepy mascot
An awesome ad campaign dies: One of the most unlikely ways to advertise that you should eat burgers will go the way of many other kings before it, as high-calorie ruler Burger King (which has been struggling a bit recently) has decided to refocus its marketing on something a little less … y’know … creepy. Bring back the Subservient Chicken! source
