Burger King's New Whopperito Is This Summer's Most Insane Fast Food Mash-Up
It looks like you really can have it all.
The worst part of burgers — a nearly perfect food — has always been the fact that they’re not also burritos. Well now all that’s about to change with the new Whopperito, which hits Burger King on August 15. The item is basically a Whopper chopped up inside a tortilla, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome it into our lives.
The Whopperito is stuffed with beef, Tex-Mex seasoning, tomatoes, onion, lettuce, pickles and creamy queso sauce. According to a statement from Burger King, a local franchise first tested out the dish, which then “sparked widespread demand from guests” on social media. The democratic process is so beautiful!
This year, Burger King has placing their bets on zany mash-up foods, most notably with their limited-time Mac n’ Cheetos: deep-fried sticks of macaroni and cheese covered in pulverized, Cheetos-flavored breading.

The Whopperito will cost $2.99 individually and $4.99 as part of a combo meal. While the item will be available starting August 15, there’s no word yet on how long it will be sold in restaurants.
