You know one of my chief joys during October is special edition Halloween food, so when Burger King decided to introduce a Halloween Whopper, I knew I was going to have to eat it at some point. Everyone else has been sharing their pictures and experiences, so... well, here's mine.
I'm actually not much of a Burger King fan, so I haven't had any in years. They just remodeled our local place so it looks less like the kind of place where you're going to get knifed during a drug deal gone wrong, and since this is a new, special thing for Halloween, I figured BK would try a little harder. As I've said before, one of the things I love about special edition Halloween food is that it tastes fresher, rather than like something that's been sitting in a warehouse (or whatever the BK equivalent is).
This may be the only time I eat one, but I would gladly have another if the time and money worked out. It's a nice treat, particularly after a really hard, really emotional therapy session. Burger King went all out on this one, and you can taste the difference. It might not make me a BK convert--I was born a McDonald's kid, I'll die a McDonald's kid, and probably early from all of the McDonald's I've eaten--but this was easily the most rewarding Burger King has been for me since they had Return of the Jedi glasses back in '83.
Oh, and by the way: I cannot yet attest to whether it will turn my waste green, but Gizmodo has an article that explains why it happens, if you're interested. Science!
