    I tried The Chicken, Apple & Cranberry Garden Salad Wrap and the raspberry smoothie. First the smoothie – tasted amazing and was “smooth” compared to the thick things some places give you. Well done. Next the salad wrap. While the apple and cranberry tasted well to make a good wrap, it is overpriced. The wrap was baby-sized and would have been a good value at 1.49 but not at the 3.49 I paid for it.

    Do they even try anymore? It appears that they just recycle items from McDonald’s menu. Strange “re-invention” of their business model. If you’re going to start ripping off menus, at least shoot a little higher geez.

  3. Victor says:

    The Chicken Parm sandwich is a big empty promise. On their fancy new LCD menus they actually show video of one being made: a big freaking slab of mozzarella melting and bubbling on top of a fried chicken. What they actually serve has a mound of hard, dry shaved parmesan cheese and only a shadow-thin veil of mozzarella just for show. Every try to melt parmesan cheese? Much less get it to bubble? Given the fact that the old Italian Chicken sandwich was a constantly recurring promotion, like the McRib, you would think that using a real chicken breast instead of a “chik’n” patty would only make it better. Leave it to BK to screw up something so darn basic.

  4. Michael says:

    The chicken parm is definitely a turkey. Cold cheese and cold marinara sauce? Blech. BK’s chicken parm is to any chicken parm sub from any pizzeria anywhere what a lunchables pizza is to, well, real pizza from any pizzeria anywhere. It is just a fake. Try the Basil wrap with grilled chicken. That is a much better product… sauce has a little zing and the flavors work well together (although the person who made mine had a hard time wrapping the tortilla). Avoid the fake parm.

  5. Ub says:

    BK is such a crap company and so desperate that all they can do to try and survive is copy everything McDonalds has done the last 5 years. What a pathetic company and their products still suck. They can’t even copy McD right haha.

  6. TS says:

    None of this makes me want to step into a Burger King. Its either already been done or is overpriced crap. Not sure why they are trying to become a more expensive and worse McDonalds. They can’t compete on price so they need to differentiate themselves in some other way. It’s gotten so bad I’d rather eat an Angus Burger than any large burger on the BK menu. There burgers suck, there restaurants are dirty, the employees are dirty, the whole chain is just an inconsistent mess.

    • Justin ST says:

      I’m sorry, but I get the vibe that some of the posters above work for McDonald’s in some capacity. We have a few posters making the same lame comment with some notion that Burger King is out to copy McDonald’s! LOL, I just am not seeing that. Quit with your dubious smear campaign.

      • TJ says:

        You asked if the poster below was high… but you seem pretty paranoid yourself. McDonald’s is definitely not an S Class, but why are you so defensive regarding BK?

        I think Burger King’s burgers are generally better than McDonald’s, but I disagree that there is some sort of smear campaign here. There has been a lot of negative comments here for all of the major chains. Were all the negative comments regarding McDonald’s wings from BK employees? Subway sure gets so much love here. I dunno, it just seems like a weird accusation to me.

        • Manavee says:

          I don’t agree with Justin that the comments here are representative of a McDonald’s smear campaign. However, I don’t think it’s a totally paranoid/crazy idea. I’ve long been suspicious of some of the random Wendy’s commentators that pop up saying that Wendy’s is the best ever whenever a Wendy’s product gets mentioned (and for the record, I actually like Wendy’s)…. (I would also mention it was interesting to see Wendy’s win the bacon poll….their bacon is good, but they won the poll by a very large margin).

          The practice of placing “plants” in comment sections has been going on forever in the movie industry. Is it crazy to think that something similar might happen in the fast food industry?

      • CulinaryZerg says:

        Actually, it was BK themselves about a year ago who made fun of this fact. They had a commercial where “the King” goes and steals McD’s secret sausage biscuit recipe (basically sausage, egg, cheese, biscuit) so that BK can sell the same. It’s not a smear campaign, it’s a deliberate (and pathetic) strategy.

        I mean, BK in the last 1-2 years has copied Chicken McNuggets, Chicken Selects, Smoothies, Sausage Biscuits (hence commercial), Wraps, Popcorn Chicken, expensive coffees…the list goes on.

        I am utterly baffled as to how BK management can be this reactive and unoriginal, versus actually leading the way with market changes.

  7. Jonathan Wayne says:

    This looks bland and uninspiring. Apart from their BBQ burgers which are good, everything else is a fail. I honestly don’t see how BK is going to survive down the road. McDonald’s is like a 2012 S Class and BK is like a 90s KIA.

  8. Rob says:

    You know I get the wraps, smoothie and popcorn chicken as things that work for McDonalds so BK thinks they need them as well. However does anyone really think tossing some tomatoe sauce on things is going to bring people in? That burrito looks disgusting, the chicken parm might be good but, every time I have chicken at BK is has not been good. As I have said before I like breakfast at BK and I like the onion rings but, everything else tends to not be good.

  9. rob says:

    The popcorn chicken looks like fried okra

  10. Rusty Shackleford says:

    Meh, the only chicken I’ve ever gotten from BK was the chicken fries. With a Chick Fil A and a Zaxby’s flanking the nearest BK, there have been better options for chicken, and these menu items aren’t really changing my mind on that.. I wish BK would stop lobbing these off the wall salads and chicken fingers and such and bring back some of their old good discontinued things like the Steakhouse burgers and the BK Toppers.

  11. Mike N. says:

    Ryan – The ‘LTO’ threw me off; I’m used to LTO refering to ‘Lettuce Tomato Onion’ (aka standard burger toppings) but ‘Limited Time Offer’ makes a lot of sense too. And for the record, I think I just know of LTO from AHT

  12. Raiders757 says:

    i just wish BK would ditch all the fluff and get back to making a decent Whopper again. The current version is such a pathetic version of it’s former self. Bring the Whopper back to it’s glory and for a decent price. bring back fries without a funky starchy coating(even the newest ones have it). Strip the menu down and concentrate on doing what they once did better than most of their ilk back in the 80s. BK has been on a downward spiral since the mid 90s. When their flagship item, the Whopper, is nothing but a flopper, what does that say about the rest of the food?

    • alexg says:

      I agree with you, but what has changed about the Whooper? I dare not try one now because it looks so disgusting. I used to eat the Tendercrisp Chicken Sandwich when it first came out about 7 or 8 years ago and that was pretty good. Hope they haven’t messed that one up.

  13. Ari says:

    The Chicken Parm looks tasty also the Cesar wrap. Interesting options. i’m all for places trying new ideas.

  14. fah fah fah says:

    Was just in there on the weekend for lack of any better ideas, and they really stripped down their menu something awful. Only one size of BK snacker, none of those premium chicken sandwiches. Very disappointing. LCD menus are nice, tho…

  15. Stephy says:

    I recently had the chicken parmesan and I wasn’t very impressed. I was excited to try it since Italian food is my favorite, but it was a pretty big letdown. I didn’t go into it expecting it to be the most amazing chicken parmesan ever, that would just be stupid since it IS fast food and all, but I went into it expecting to be even a little better than it was. The bun was.. strange. Lukewarm, lifeless, and somewhat moist (not in a good way). I feel like they could’ve done something, anything, to this bun to make it more appealing because the best way to describe it was dull. The sauce was also lukewarm, and it tasted like cheap pizza sauce you get out of a jar for a buck. I caught myself thinking about the McSpaghetti (something I have always wanted them to bring my way) and saying… if this is what fast food spaghetti sauce tastes like, I could care less if they ever brought the McSpaghetti here. Not good. The cheese was average. I couldn’t really taste it for the most past, but it was there and it wasn’t bad. The best part about this sandwich would be the chicken. My Burger King offered the sandwich to me in grilled or crispy. I ordered the grilled, and was delighted to find that it was in fact a chicken BREAST and not just chicken pieces mashed up and formed together. But even though the chicken was good, I don’t think it was enough to be a saving grace. It’s not like this sandwich is inedible–in fact I’d say go ahead and try it because I’m glad I did. It’s a decent sandwich, I just really think they need to improve upon a few things before I can say that it’s a GOOD sandwich. Maybe next time they bring them around they will be better. I sure hope so.

    Just tried the Chicken Parmesan Sandwich with a BOGO coupon. The ones I purchased had a good amount of mozzarella melted on top. The parmesan was barely noticeable or seen. The bun was okay and the crispy chicken was actually pretty tasty. I’m a fan of the original chicken sandwich and this one was just as good in taste; it’s different though and has more spices. However, just like the original chicken sandwich, this one is overpriced and, like every other item on the menu. In addition, it was also small, like the size of a McChicken.

    I’m not sure what BK is thinking with it’s premium prices for standard items. $4.00 for the chicken sandwich and $6.00 for a double whopper with cheese? I don’t think so.
