Rodeo Whopper

6 Jul

It’s already been three years since Burger King re-entered the Japanese market.
(Wendy’s hamburger chain is also currently trying to re-enter the market here since they left last year).

To commemorate their three-year anniversary, Burger King Japan has a new “Whopper” sandwich with three patties, American BBQ sauce and onion rings.
It’s called 「ロデオワッパー」 (the “Rodeo Whopper“).

And for three weeks (until 2010 July 20), the first 30 people at each Burger King in Japan each day who orders a “Rodeo Whopper” will only have to pay ¥330 (rather than the full price of ¥790*).

*(Actually during this three-week campaign period, until July 20th, the “regular” price of this three-patty Whopper burger is reduced to ¥690).

A one-patty “Rodeo Whopper” can be purchased for ¥450.
And a “Rodeo Whopper Jr.” costs ¥580 for three-patties or ¥340 for one-patty.

To tell the truth, I think the Burger King Whopper is a good burger. But I don’t buy one often, I don’t like to pay that much for fast-food. A “normal” cheeseburger for about ¥120 is all I need.
But even when I want to buy a “Whopper” burger, I wouldn’t choose this “Rodeo Whopper”. I think the BBQ sauce and onion rings make it look unappetizing. (I do like onion rings, though.)

Does Burger King have the “Rodeo Whopper” on the menu in your country? Have you tried it?
