We Can't Believe This Discontinued Burger King Sandwich Was Real
By Erin Metz
Burger King is best known for its burgers, fries, and chicken but the fast food giant has experimented with slightly odd menu items, including the discontinued Whopperito.
This brief regional offering introduced in August 2016, took everything fans loved about the chain's classic Whopper and threw it into a tortilla.
However, fans did not react well to a tortilla full of beef crumbles, nacho queso cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, mayo, ketchup, pickles, and onions.
The name itself was misleading — "Whopperito" implies a burrito, but the fast food item was little more than a chopped burger in a flimsy wrap.
The contents of the Whopperito also leaned more toward a wrap than a burrito, with burger ingredients that you're unlikely to find in an actual burrito.
If this was Burger King's answer to the beloved Snack Wraps from McDonald's that fans were begging to come back, the Whopperito missed the mark.
