The recent announcement that Burger King would be introducing a line of sandwiches called BK Stackers begs the question: How come none of these other restaurants ever thought of making a quadruple cheeseburger? Clearly, this is what the game has been missing.
For a while now, I've been getting the triple cheeseburger they sell at Wendy's. I consider it somewhat gullier than Hardee's infamous Monster Thickburger, despite the fact that the Monster Thickburger might have it beat in terms of overall calories. You have to think a lot of that though, is coming from the mayonnaise, cheese, and bacon, rather than the beef.
Burger King's quadruple stacker (fuck those other two), meanwhile, manages to pile on more beef in addition to a shiteload of bacon and cheese. I don't have the nutrition facts for the Monster Thickburger handy, but I'm sure it beats it in that category as well. That biggest one comes with four slices of cheese, eight strips of bacon, and is said to contain more calories than two Big Macs.
"The BK Stacker is simple and built with the very ingredients our restaurant guests love best—meat, cheese and bacon," notes Denny Marie Post, Burger King's senior vice president and chief concept officer. "We're satisfying the serious meat lovers by leaving off the produce and letting them decide exactly how much meat and cheese they can handle."
Amen to that, Burger King.
