Almost 800 million people in the world don’t have enough food to eat, but what the hey, some guy went to Burger King in Japan and ordered a Whopper with more than 700 pickles – just for the hell of it.
The burger was ordered by the team over at RocketNews24, who have made headlines before with their outrageous 1000 cheese-slice Whopper. But I guess they were trying to outdo themselves, so this time they sent in some poor soul (probably an intern) and he ended up ordering a 1.7-kilogram Whopper with 718 pickle slices.
The monstrosity cost him ¥10,000 which is around $AU120. BTW – the amount of food I could buy for $120 is way more than I’m seeing in these pictures.
This is what RocketNews24 had to say about their creation: “It was so huge and bulky that the hapless staff members charged with packing up the thing had to sort of just tape together a bunch of standard wrappers. And, since pickles are one of the more moist toppings on a burger, the over 700 slices of pickles adorning our burger had already soaked through all those wrappers, turning the whole package into a wet mess right out of the gates.”
