Burger King is set to unveil its new “French Fry Burger,” a $1 item that will attempt to compete with items on McDonald’s resurgent Dollar Menu.
The French Fry Burger, to be available in Burger King restaurants starting Sept. 1, will consist of a standard burger topped with four French fries, the Associated Press reports. The new $1 menu item represents the Miami-based fast food chain’s latest attempt to attract customers with inexpensive, creative meals.
The chain didn't have to invest in any additional ingredients for the new burger is constructed from "readily available items," AP reports. The burger reportedly has 360 calories and 19 grams of fat.
The new menu item appears to be Burger King’s answer to McDonald’s recent attempts to bolster its own Dollar Menu offerings, says AP. McDonald’s now offers a Grilled Onion Cheddar Burger and a revamped take on its classic McDouble, each of which are available for just $1.
Burger King's French Fry Burger may be making headlines at the moment, but it's only the latest in a series of unlikely fast food experiments. Take a look at seven of the craziest fast food items ever made:
Doritos Locos Taco
Taco Bell Waffle Taco
KFC Double Down
