The sweltering heat has prompted some desperate measures, even during mealtimes. And while ice cream can solve most problems, what are people who don’t have a sweet tooth going to do, chew on ice? That’s like expecting vegetarians to order only salads and fries at every meal. There’s a limit.
As an unusual remedy, Burger King Japan has introduced the ‘Ice Whopper’—what it seemingly considers to be the perfect summer treat. It has the famous flame-grilled patty because, well, summer and grills, plus a layer of shaved ice between the onions and pickles to help diners cool off.
It’s a concept that would mess with most people’s minds. Some would even call it a brain freeze. Wendy’s happens to have some beef against frozen burgers.
The chill AF burger is part of a limited-edition ‘Summer Love Set’ that also comes with what the fast-food chain calls the ‘Ice Bottle’, a frozen bottle of Coca-Cola.
While the burger might intrigue those with a thing for textures, it’s clearly not for everyone. Those thinking of giving this bizarre menu item
a miss the cold shoulder can rest easy as it’s not easy to obtain. The Ice Whopper will only be served at one popup stall at a beach in Kanagawa Prefecture on August 19 and 20. The set will go for ¥1,000 (US$7.49), and a reservation is required to secure one.
