Burger King’s latest sandwich has caused a lot of people to share their strong opinions.
Known in the UK as the Chip Butty, the sandwich with only french fries is causing controversy amongst many on social media. People are questioning why the sandwich even exists, considering it's just some fries between two buns.
“With crispy golden fries, mayo and ketchup, nestled between two soft buns, His Royal Fry-ness, the CHIP BUTTY has arrived,” Burger King captioned the new item on its website.
The meatless sandwich is allegedly being tested at Burger King outlets in New Zealand and features fries, mayo and ketchup in between two hamburger buns
This new item has sparked a lot of attention, causing many Twitter users to comment on the existence of the sandwich. One person said, "I’ve never actually had burger king but why did they think they could put fries and ketchup on a bun and call that a sandwich that should be illegal."
Other users couldn't help but comment on the fact that the Chip Butty has been around for some time in the UK, leaving Burger King trolls to come out of the woodwork for a tasteful burn.
Wendy's even joked about the sandwich, throwing shade at Burger King. “When literally anything would be better on a bun than their beef," Wendy's tweeted.
Wendy's even took their trolling a step further by responding to those who dared to comment on the original tweet.
"Please tell me this is a joke," one user wrote. "Their whole restaurant is," the chain responded.
“Ehh, Burger King running out of ideas for new burgers,” added another. “They should try the ever present idea - make it good,” replied Wendy’s.
Some, however, came to Burger King's defense, noting that at least the chain has a vegetarian option. One user writes simply, "Whopper > your menu," to get his love for BK across.
Burger King has yet to respond to Wendy’s post on Twitter.
