Burger King Celebrates 55th Anniversary With 55 Cent Whopper

Burger King Celebrates 55th Anniversary With 55 Cent Whopper
World

Burger King is celebrating the 55th anniversary of its famous burger, the Whopper, by offering a 55 cent Whopper from Thursday through Sunday.

The Whopper was created by Burger King co-founder James McLamore in 1957.

“Burger King is very excited to celebrate this amazing milestone with the Whopper sandwich lovers who have helped make it an American icon,” said Flavia Faugeres, the fast food chain’s executive vice president.

“For 55 years it’s been a fan favorite, and this weekend we encourage our guests to stop by and join in on the celebration.”

In order to get a 55 cent Whopper, you have to purchase another Whopper at regular price.

The famous burger chain is offering two limited-edition Whoppers as well: the Wisconsin White Cheddar Whopper, which features smoked bacon and natural Wisconsin white cheese, and the Angry Whopper, which features Habanero cheese, jalapeño slices and “angry sauce.”

These both retail for $4.49, but then your Original Whopper comes at almost an eighth of the price.

“Even if you buy ten other Whoppers, you’ll only get ten 55-cent ones,” a spokesperson said.

While the 55 cent Whopper may sound like a great deal, it was initially sold for 37 cents in 1957.
