Coffee Talk #479: Big Mac vs. Whopper
Welcome to Coffee Talk! Let’s start off the day by discussing whatever is on your (nerd chic) mind. Every morning I’ll kick off a discussion and I’m counting on you to participate in it. If you’re not feelin’ my topic, feel free to start a chat with your fellow readers and see where it takes you. Whether you’re talking about videogames, watching thousands of Blizzard fans geek out, Lady Gaga being banned from Indonesia, or Man City’s glorious Premiere League victory, Coffee Talk is the place to do it.
As requested by RPadholic N8R, today’s Coffee Talk is a batt le of mediocre fast-food burgers: the McDonald’s Big Mac vs. the Burger King Whopper. In the red corner, you have two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce cheese, pickles, onions…oh, you know the deal. In the blue corner you can have it your way with BK’s flame-broiled goodness. Which fast-food burger do you prefer?!?
Most of you know that there are superior fast-food burgers out there like Five Guys, In-N-Out, Shake Shack, etc. That said, this is an important debate and poll. I don’t know about you, but I don’t really consider the Big Mac or the Whopper to be real hamburgers. It’s kind of like how Taco Bell products aren’t really Mexican food. Whoppers, Burrito Supremes, and the like are their own (and arguably gross) thing.
Enough semantics! Please vote and state your case in this hugely important edition of Coffee Talk!
