Good News For Fans Of Burger King's Sourdough King

Two days ago, Mashed reported on Burger King's sourdough-related announcement and speculated that it may have to do with the number of chicken sandwich-related products that have been released in the past couple of weeks. Today, Burger King has announced via Instagram that they were introducing a new Sourdough King, not a chicken sandwich.

The Sourdough King, as Chew Boom writes, consists of a quarter-pound beef patty, bacon, two slices of American cheese, ketchup, and mayonnaise between two slabs of sourdough bread. It comes as a single or a double with two patties and four slices of cheese. The other newer option includes the Double Bacon Sourdough Breakfast King, which provides you with double the bacon, a Double Ham Sourdough Breakfast King with eggs and cheese, and the Double Sausage Sourdough Breakfast King with sausage patties and eggs. All of these are available until April 19, as Delish notes.

It may not be the revamped chicken sandwich that Burger King hinted to CNN a week ago, but the reaction to the Instagram announcement has been primarily positive so far.

You may be eligible for a free Sourdough King

To ramp up the excitement for the new limited-time offering, Burger King has dangled the possibility of a free sandwich. If, as Thrillist explains, your name includes a silent g, then you can gain a free Sourdough King via the Burger King app. So Hughs and Ashleighs rejoice.

Presumably, the reason for this promotion's nature is that the sourdough which they live-streamed on Twitch for 48 hours became known as Hugh. One person mentioned this on the Sourdough King's announcement: "The twitch stream was funny! Good times with Hugh and the fam."

If you are a follower of Lil Wayne on Twitter, you would be forgiven for being completely unaware about this promotion as in what Uproxxx described as "the absolute minimum to fulfill a branded tweet obligation," he simply tweeted "Sourdough @BurgerKing #AD." That said, such a minimalist ad no doubt would send confused and interested parties to read about what it is that he is on about.
