Burger King New Menu

By Erik Trinidad

It took the royal touch (and a lot of money) of the self-proclaimed king of burgers to commandeer celebrities to endorse a new food product line. If you’ve seen Jay Leno, Mary J. Blige, Salma Hayek, Steven Tyler, Sofia Vergara, or even international heartthrob David Beckham use their fame-fueled influence in a new ad campaign for Burger King, you know something at BK is aiming to be more buzzworthy than the mere addition of mushrooms on a Whopper. For the first time in its 58-year history, BK has expanded its offerings broader than ever before, with 10 new items that strive to better diversify their menu -- akin to burger competitor McDonald's. However, burgers are not the focus of the new items; in our health-conscious world, the king of burgers has instead focused on chicken, salads and frosty beverages.

See how they rate:

Grade: B-
A blend of mixed greens is topped with tomatoes, red onions, three cheeses, and of course, bacon -- plus your choice of grilled or crispy chicken. However, there's not enough of the toppings in it for a consistent taste in every bite; near the end, you're just stuck with a pile of lettuce, dependent on salad dressing for any sort of taste.

Calories: 510 (with grilled chicken and dressing; add 180 for crispy chicken).
