Burger King Takes to the Road  
Part of the rebranding started Wednesday, as the company sent 30 food trucks to travel to 40 cities. Employees are handing out free samples of new menu items like fresh fruit smoothies and chicken strips with new dips.
The company hopes to exploit the popularity of food trucks.

    Burger King is trying to reinvent it's self with menu items that are already winners on McDonalds menu. Boy that should get them moving in the right direction. Burger King used to build a store right across from Mcdonald, they thought they could go head to head with them, BK lost the game, they are dead in the water.................................pnwc

      Call me when they figure out how to make a 1/2 decent cup of coffee.

        Free is the magic word. Free will turn it into a sport. All the Walmart Black Friday shoppers will work the game. If they are ready to stompede for a $3 cheap as **** waffle iron they cut Thanksgiving short to speed over and wait in line for...it should be game on game for something free at the Burger King cart.

            Here's an interesting Burger King story:
            http://en.rocketnews24.com/2012/04/19/we-order-whopper-with-1050-bacon-strips-struggle-to-level-comically-huge-burger/


            I didn't know Chewy was Japanese, then I realized there wasn't a can of beer next to the bacon burger, so it couldn't be him.................pnwc

                That doesn't even look appetizing. And I'm a big bacon fan.

                  Just because you can do something doesn't mean you should.
                  Besides that doesn't resemble Nueske's bacon in the least.

                    Now that looks good.

                      Nueske's bacon looks lovely.

                      The Burger King version reminds me of Cousin Itt from The Addams Family.
