MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BURGER KING® restaurants are adding the sourdough bun to their iconic menu while launching a debate that could last for the ages. Starting today at participating restaurants nationwide, Americans can enjoy new menu items on the new toasted sourdough bun; the SOURDOUGH KING™ and the BREAKFAST SOURDOUGH KING™ collection.
Is the SOURDOUGH KING™ a burger or a sandwich? BURGER KING® restaurants invited guests to their restaurant to help the King decide. The Debate video can be viewed on YouTube.com/BurgerKing.
BURGER KING® restaurants wants to hear what all guests think. Once guests have decided if the SOURDOUGH KING™ is a burger or a sandwich, they can tweet @BurgerKing with either #teamburger or #teamsandwich, or participate in a voting poll on Burger King’s social channels.
The new SOURDOUGH KING™ is made with more than ½ lb.* of legendary, flame-grilled 100% beef, melted American cheese, crispy bacon, freshly sliced onions & creamy signature sauce. The new offering keeps the iconic ingredients of BURGER KING® restaurants’ flame-grilled burgers, and adds a fresh new flavor with the toasted sourdough bun.
For breakfast, the BREAKFAST SOURDOUGH KING™ collection is the best way to start the morning, with a choice of savory sizzling sausage, thick cut naturally smoked bacon, or sweet black forest ham, served with warm fluffy eggs and two helpings of melted American cheese all on a soft toasted sourdough bun.
The new SOURDOUGH KING™ is available for a recommended price of $5.99 and the BREAKFAST SOURDOUGH KING™ collection for a recommended price of $3.69 each at participating restaurants.
