Fast Food Review: Mini Blueberry Biscuits from Burger King
Burger King recently debuted a bunch of new menu items to their breakfast menu. Currently, BK is underway with an ad campaign (how annoying are those commercials?) focused on their new morning lineup. While breakfast sandwiches will always find a place on breakfast menus, the sweets are often overlooked. One of the new items just released to fit into the “sweet” category, the Mini Blueberry Biscuits.
The Mini Blueberry Biscuits are described like this
The King knew you’d be hungry, so he baked up some biscuits. Enjoy four mini blueberry biscuits with sweet tasty icing dip on the side. Go ahead, double dip them. We won’t tell.
The Mini Blueberry Biscuits are on the BK Breakfast Value Menu and cost just $1.00 for the pack of 4. I’m not going to totally hammer these biscuits because they are pretty much what I expected for a dollar. You’re getting some crusty, sweet blueberry infused nuggets that pack a sugary punch. The additional icing for dipping is overkill, but you should’ve expected that. 30 grams of sugar and 15 grams of saturated fat… sheesh. I don’t know about you, but even if it’s a dollar, it’s not really worth it for that much saturated fat. You’re not getting a filling meal that will leave you satisfied, but you are getting something to calm down your sugar craving. My biscuits came pretty piping hot and were small enough to just pop in my mouth all at once (one at a time of course). These biscuits were a little on the dry side so you feel almost forced to use the icing.
Should you pick up a 4-pack of these Mini Blueberry Biscuits? It’s a coin flip really. If you have a sweet tooth and not a care in the world for all that saturated fat, go for it. $1.00 is hard to beat these days for giving new menu items a try. I’m hearing rumblings of the other new BK breakfast offerings coming up way short. These mini biscuits will meet expectations if you keep your expectations relatively low. I went in expecting mediocrity, and they hit the mark.
Pros: Just $1.00. Satisfies a sweet tooth. Decent packaging for grubbing on the go.
Cons: A little too dry and crusty. Lots of sugar and saturated fat. A lot sweeter than it needs to be.
Grubbing on-the-go: 7.00/10
Overall GrubGrade: 5.75/10
