A few Whoppers
This summer, Burger King will be hot. Last week, the Angry Whopper went on sale, and on July 23, the Crazy Whopper (photo) will debut. Both burgers have added spiciness.
With the Angry Whopper, in each and every country, the flavor is slightly altered to suit the local taste. In Japan, it uses miso as a base, and several kinds of spices (chili paste, chili powder, red pepper, etc). The three levels of spiciness are: “Uma Kara” which means yummy spicy (420 yen); “Piri Kara” which means sharp-spicy (480 yen); and “Geki Kara” which means extreme-spicy (540 yen).
The Crazy Whopper uses Bhut Jolokia, certified as the world’s hottest chili pepper by Guinness World Records. This burger is said to be 30 times spicier than the Angry Whopper.
