So the battle stage has been set as Burger King unveiled their Pizza Burger at their Whopper Bar in New York.
Now Im not from New York, but I would venture to say most New Yorkers would not appreciate this homage. I dont know why but the thought of a 2,520 calorie burger (even if it is meant to be shared) with Burger King grade peperoni just doesnt sound appealing. Also I think its the fact that this food looks like fake plastic kids food. I know fast food never looks like its supposed to in the ads, but at least it generally looks appetizing.
In fact the Dominos Cheeseburger Pizza that debuted a while back actually sounded and looked more appealing.
I mean its really not that big of a stretch to make a pizza into a cheeseburger. Its already got cheese, tomatoes and bread...all it needs is ground beef and youre good to go. But a burger into pizza?!?! Thats just madness!!!
But I think we all know what needs to happen...someone needs to purchase both of these and have a hybrid fast food taste test. I would do it myself but not eating beef and not living in New York makes it pretty impossible...plus I want to live to see 30.
