    Burger King Launches Sourdough King. Is it a Sandwich?

  • Industry News March 30, 2018

    Burger King restaurants are adding the sourdough bun to their iconic menu while launching a debate that could last for the ages. Starting Thursday 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 half a pound of flame-grilled 100 percentbeef, 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.
