Burger King® Whopper® Melts — Three New Handheld Toasted Sandwiches — Now Available Nationwide

There’s a New Way to Whopper...

MIAMI, (BUSINESS WIRE) -- At Burger King, we want our guests to have it their way — whether that means adding extra, extra cheese, no pickles, a lot of pickles, stealing a friend’s onion rings instead of ordering your own, or holding a sandwich in one hand while typing a text with the other. Which is why we’re introducing a new way to Whopper…our new Whopper Melts are a cheesy, melty way to enjoy a flame-grilled Whopper — but if it fits in one hand, is it really a Whopper? Guests will have to try it to decide for themselves.
