Burger King launches new giant burger that includes an entire pack of bacon

Veggies, look away – Burger King has launched a new supersized burger which contains an entire pack of bacon.

The Bacon King contains two quarter pounder patties and eight slices of thick-cut bacon, as well as the usual American cheese, ketchup and mayonnaise topping, all on the classic sesame seed BK bun.

The colossal sized bun isn’t for the faint hearted. This king sized burger contains a whopping 1,000 calories and 59g of fat – nearly 300 calories more than McDonald’s recently launched Grand Big Mac which has 741kcal per serving.

Alasdair Murdoch, the CEO of Burger King UK said: “We’re firmly committed to delivering innovative, great-tasting food at affordable prices for all our customers.”

Murdoch added: “We hear how much our guests in the UK love bacon, and we hope that by introducing the Bacon King sandwich we help to satisfy that craving.”
