Burger King is embracing its dark side with the relaunch of the Angry Whopper, an item it began selling in 2009 and released at various other times through the years.
The Angry Whopper was originally introduced in Europe, but then made its way to the U.S.
It features a quarter-pound beef patty, bacon, American cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, jalapenos, mayonnaise and Angry Sauce on a toasted sesame seed bun. The spicy sauce explains most of the anger component.
Today’s Angry Whopper is considered a less flamboyant version of its 2016 release, the “Angriest Whopper,” which was hot-sauce-infused and featured a red sesame bun.
BK is adding a line extension with Angry breakfast sandwiches, also the company’s latest salvo in the breakfast wars that began after Wendy’s and Taco Bell entered the breakfast arena to take on leader McDonald’s.
The four sandwiches are:
Angry Croissan’wich: A crossan’wich with either sausage, egg and cheese or just egg and cheese, topped with Angry Sauce and jalapenos, served on a toasted croissant.
Angry Double Crossan’wich: Double sausage, double bacon or sausage and bacon plus egg and cheese, topped with jalapenos and Angry Sauce on a toasted croissant.
Angry English muffin: Sausage, egg and cheese; bacon, egg and cheese; or egg and cheese topped with Angry Sauce and jalapenos and served on an English muffin.
Angry Chicken English muffin: A chicken patty topped with egg, cheese, four jalapenos and Angry Sauce on an English muffin.
