Coffee Talk #479: Big Mac vs. Whopper

Posted on May 15th, by raymond padilla in Coffee Talk, Geek Stuff, Today's Specials. 8 comments

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!

Which fast food burger is best?

    I've got to stick with the Big Mac and proclaim it to be better than the whopper every day of the week. The special Big Mac sauce makes the burger better than the whopper, and it actually has flavor. The whopper has sort of a bland taste to it, and the meat just doesn't taste right.

    What does taste better because it's different is the McDonald's coke along with a Big Mac and fries. The packaging for the Big Mac is even better too. It's cardboard so you can open the container and put your fries and ketchup in the side opposite your Big Mac.

    Big Mac. I'm not even sure I like the Big Mac, I just know that I very, very much dislike the Whopper. Eh, I'd still rather vote for the Baconator…

    Whopper, only because I can add ketchup to it and I don't think ketchup on a BigMac would taste very good
