Why You Should Avoid Burger King's Bacon King

Burger King is one of the biggest fast food brands out there, giving its peers tough competition in the fast food market. According to Delish, the restaurant's journey began back in 1954 when an entrepreneur named Keith G. Cramer decided to launch the brand with his father-in-law. Years later, Burger King is a force to be reckoned with and has eateries all over the world including in places like Fiji, Vietnam, Nicaragua, and more. 

While it's hard to deny that Burger King has lots of delicious options, some food items aren't exactly the healthiest. In fact, there's a secret menu burger that's named the Suicide Burger, which has a ridiculous list of ingredients including four beef patties, several cheese slices, bacon, and sauce. You're looking at a whopping 800 calories coupled with 175 milligrams of cholesterol and 2,430 milligrams of sodium. Oh no. Speaking of which, if you're health-conscious, you need to stay away from Burger King's Bacon King as well.

The Bacon King isn't a healthy option

Yes, all of us love to indulge in fast food from an old favorite like Burger King sometimes. However, it's a good idea to choose wisely while feasting on fast food for the sake of your health. A burger like the Bacon King is hardly worth the trouble: it comes with two beef patties, lots of cheese, six bacon strips, ketchup, and mayonnaise. It also tastes quite like the Baconator from Wendy's.

Additionally, you'll be paying for a burger that contains at least 1,150 calories and comes loaded with 31 grams of saturated fat. Yikes! As per Eat This, Not That!, this really is one of the unhealthiest items to eat at Burger King. The Bacon King also has way too much sodium — you'll end up consuming your full day's sodium requirements in one sitting. So avoid the Bacon King and opt for something healthier like the classic hamburger or the veggie burger. You're welcome!
