After having successfully wooed customers with their Angriest Whopper (which they recently brought to India), the Burger King scientists appear to be testing their luck with a new product; The Whopperrito.
Yup, you figured it out; the Whopperrito is what would happen if the Whopper and a burrito got married and had babies. Obscenely stuffed, unhealthy babies.
The Whopper (in its classic form) is a hamburger, made with a flame grilled quarter pound beef patty, mayonnaise, lettuce, tomato, pickles, ketchup and a sliced onion all in a sesame seed bun.
So, the Whopperrito takes all the Whopper ingredients – the cheese, meat, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles and so on and wraps them in a tortilla wrap – similar, one Twitter user pointed out, to what would happen if you wrapped a Whopper in a Taco Bell taco.
The Whopperrito was first reported on by GrubGrade which saw an ad for the product in Hermitage, Pennsylvania.
As with any new product from a fast food player, the internet is going crazy about the Whopperrito. Consumerist titled their article on the Whopperito as ‘The End Is Nigh: Burger King Is Testing Something Called The Whopperito” while Time has called it “the unholy offspring of a cheeseburger and a burrito.”
Meanwhile, here’s what Twitter thinks:
@BurgerKing the Whopperito sounds like the Jersey Boys finally met West side story. Worst name ever.

What do you think? Are you drooling at the thought of a Whopperrito? Or is there nothing you want less?
