The Time Burger King Made Wine To Pair With The Whopper
Burger King, home of the famous Whopper burger, is the second largest fast food hamburger chain worldwide. The Whopper was introduced in 1957 and has had a significant impact on the company's success, including variations over the years like the Bacon Whopper, but this one Whopper experiment was much more unusual.
At one point, Burger King sought to create an alcoholic companion for the Whopper. The resulting "Whopper wine" was released in 2015 in Spain as an exclusive promotional celebration — so exclusive that only 40 bottles were made, which were raffled off in a contest for customers who shared their Burger King experiences on social media.
BK intended the Whopper wine to compliment the burger and enhance its flavor, and Delish notes that the promotion acknowledged the first Burger King locations in Spain, which had wine on their menus. Unfortunately, none of us in 2022 are likely to try a glass of Whopper wine, but you can always pair your BK burger with your favorite wine at home.
