Burger King Tempts No One With Brussels Sprout Whopper

post-1302-0-66949900-1293129037.jpg

Be glad you're not in the UK right now, because we know you'd be beating down the doors of your local Burger King just to get your hands on the limited-time-only "Sprout Surprise Whopper," featuring that most beloved of burger add-ons, Brussels sprouts.

Brussels sprouts are apparently associated with the holidays in the UK (maybe they are here too, though I've never come across it), so the King has created a Whopper topped with sprouts and emmental cheese.

Said someone in charge of culinary development at BK UK with a completely straight face:

We believe that taste is king, and as such, we wanted to create a recipe that would challenge existing sprout perceptions, and genuinely make sprouts a flavour to be reckoned with.

Judging by this statement on the BK UK Facebook page, it appears that even in Ol' Blighty the response to the Sprout Whopper wasn't exactly oohs and ahhhs: "orry to hear some of you weren't too keen on the idea of the Sprout Surprise Whopper yesterday, but we're confident that The King can make even Brussels Sprouts taste good!"

Only in the UK someone would think this is a good idea.

If it didn't have the cheese, I would totally by one to try it out.

I quite like Brussels Sprouts myself, lol.

Well they tempted me last night, and it was very pleasant - far better than some of the garbage I've had from mcdonalds. I actually wanted to get another one tonight, but can't be bothered driving 20 mins just for a burger. Tomorrow after work however........ :)

Brussels Sprouts are great when done properly... I think the chances of Burger King doing them properly is about as high as Burger King making anything properly.

I don't quite understand why so many people hate brussel sprouts, though I have the feeling people haven't had them when they're prepared properly. Don't well they're actually quite tasty I think, I'd likely be willing to give some burger like this a taste.

Brussels Spouts are the third best vegetable after chips and peas - must try this burger. Although instead of the cheese I would prefer just slices of sprouts
