Burger King is launching a burger burrito item called the Whopperrito nationally on Aug. 15, according to a news release. The Whopperrito is made with many of the same ingredients as the classic Whopper burger, but with queso sauce replacing mayonnaise and a flour tortilla replacing the bun. “We’re infusing classic American fare with Tex-Mex flare,” said Alex Macedo, president of the North America branch of the Burger King brand. The Whopperrito’s recommended price is $2.99. Earlier this summer, Burger King introduced the Mac n’ Cheetos. Will the Whopperrito spark as much chatter? And here’s an interesting fact: The idea for the newfangled creation came from a franchisee, according to the news release.
