Burger King - Mushroom Swiss Steakhouse XT ($6.00) Rating: 2

Mark Lim - Before I pulled up to the drive-thru I decided I would let a Burger King employee pick which burger I would eat that day.

I didn't realize how much of a hassle it would be.

Me: "Hi. What burger do you recommend?
BK: "Umm... (10 second pause) Let me talk to my manager."
Me: "Wait! Just tell me what new burgers you have."
BK: "Umm... we have no new burgers."
Me: "Yes you do. I can see them right there.
BK: " Let me get my manager"

As I talked to the manager through the drive-thru speaker I realized that I would have to choose my own destiny. I ended up selecting the Mushroom Swiss Steakhouse XT which I'm sure they spit on.

You have to play that sound clip when you look at that picture.

I will never forget the great mushroom famine of 2009
Can you really call it a Mushroom and Swiss Burger when they only give you one mushroom?

I don't have too much to say about the Mushroom Swiss Burger other than it's another sad display of indifference. I have worries about future of society when I look at carelessly made burgers. I imagine the same people making my food are the same people putting together cars, doing construction work for buildings, and spawning. The latter scares me the most.

If we can teach our children to take pride in making burgers with lots of mushrooms then maybe in time our world will be a better place. It all has to start somewhere.

Be fat! Be Happy!

That would have pissed me off. It looks nothing like the ad photo! I would write strongky worded email to corporate about that!

Looks exactly like what i had the other night. What a waste of time and money. A double cheeseburger is more fulfilling than this thing.

did you order it without the tomatoes and lettuce then complain it doesn't look like the picture?

Mark said...

Actually no, that's the thing.It doesn't come with lettuce and tomato but for some reason the picture has it. I ordered it with no special instructions.

Oh, and they forgot to put Onion Straws on it! How bad is that?
