Angry Whopper

12 Jun

I mentioned a couple times on this site that spicy food is popular in the summer in Japan. Many fast-food chains in Japan offer special spicy foods on their menu during the summer.

Right now, Becker’s is offering the “Magma Burger.
And last year Burger King Japan offered the “Angry Whopper“.

Well, I guess the Angry Whopper was popular last year because Burger King Japan brought it back this year.

The Angry Whopper has ハラペーニョ (jalapeno peppers) on it.
For ¥420, you can get the 「ウマ辛」 (“Mild Hot”) level burger,
for ¥480, you have have more jalapeno peppers to bring it to 「ビリ辛」 (“Hot”) level,
and a whopper at 「激辛」 (“Very Hot”) level costs ¥540.

They also sell a 「アングリーワッパーJr」」 (“Angry Whopper Jr.”) for ¥340.

Also, right now at Burger King Japan, the four-piece 「BKテンダーズ」 (“BK (Chicken) Tenders”) are being sold for ¥100…but if you want  the  spicy “Angry Sauce” instead of ketchup, then the price is ¥150.

I’m surprised that Burger King in Japan sells their nuggets as four-pieces since almost nothing in Japan is sold as a set of four because the Japanese word for “four” is similar to the Japanese word for “death”.
McDonalds, for example, sells their “McNuggets” as a set of five in Japan (odd numbers are more popular than even in Japan).

Does Burger King sell the “BK Tenders” as a set of four in your country?

    Why is it that Japan has all the “fun” marketing and advertising for the same products that are sold in the U.S.? It’s like, advertising in the U.S. is more “serious” and god forbid if there is any light heartedness in our advertising. Gee Metal whiz. It just seems that Japan is less “uptight” about how they advertise their products… which is very cool to “me”.

    Could it be that Japan has a better sense of humor than the U.S.? I really don’t know… I only wish there was more humor in U.S. ads.

    Quite frankly, I’m sick and tired of seeing that GEICO “talking” lizard in their insurance commercials… and that is one of the very, very, few lighthearted advertisements going here.

    Spicy food is not really seasonal around where I live in Pennsylvania, it’s all-year long. I guess I’ll go to my “uptight” Burger King tomorrow and order a very “un-fun” burger. 😦

      I haven’t seen American advertisements in years. I’d like to see some…just to see how different they are from ads here in Japan.

      There are spicy foods available all year long in Japan too. You can get any type of food at all in Tokyo.
      But spicy food becomes more popular in the summer here.

      Don’t they sell any “special” menu items ever?
