Burger King Menu Items You Should Never Order
Triple Stacker King
The Triple Stacker King has three patties, multiple slices of cheese, and more bacon than any person should consume in a single sitting, totaling a whopping 1,370 calories. Given how pork has been linked with colorectal cancer, the Triple Stack King with its six slices of bacon is best avoided.
Big Fish
BK is notorious for using an Alaskan pollock filet that might have been sitting around in a warming tray for an unhealthy amount of time. The Big Fish is so unpopular that employees have said it’s essentially a fried seafood paperweight, and although it’s low on calories, it tastes horrible.
Ultimate Breakfast Platter
USA Today calls this platter the unhealthiest item on BK’s menu, highlighting its 2,550 milligrams of sodium. One YouTube review of the platter said that the pancakes tasted dry and straight out of the microwave, while the hash browns were “very greasy.”
Bacon King
Paste points out that the Bacon King is an inferior replica of Wendy’s Baconator, but BK has managed to bump the calorie count by a full 100 calories for this item. The Bacon King is loaded with 1,150 calories and 31 grams of saturated fat, accounting for 155% of the daily recommended diet.
Chicken Nuggets
In 2018, BK rolled out a promotional offer of 10 chicken nuggets for $1, but people weren’t impressed. A Chowhound user bluntly declared, “BK's Chicken Nuggets Officially SUCK!” and added, “They were flat [...] tasteless, and the 'meat' was unidentifiable.”
