Being a lover of cruciferous vegetables, I think this is a creative and festive idea for fast food. When prepared properly, the leaves can have a crunchy texture that (my guess) might hold up better than iceberg lettuce.
Despite my personal excitement over this offering, the burger has not been received favorably. According to the Facebook page:
Hi BKers – sorry 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! It’s on sale in Edinburgh , Liverpool, and London Westfield today for the same price as a standard Whopper– so pop along and try it and we guarantee you won't be disappointed.I would try it at least once. What do you think? Do you think this could ever topple McDonald's McRib Sandwich in the United States?
