With November 1st, the world began the “Christmas Season,” and regardless of religious belief (or lack of) one thing is for certain: People are gonna hawk holiday goodies. Why even the fast food joints horn in on holiday tie-ins.
That’s where Burger King Japan comes in. For a mere $21.00 (US) you can stuff your holiday depression away. Introducing the Pizza-Sized Burger! This beauty of modern technology is big enough to feed 4 and for a limited time only (in Japan ONLY as well, boo!) you can order a party pack meal featuring the massive burger, 4 drinks and four sides. Attention Japanese Readers: Order between Nov 11- Dec. 22nd for delivery Dec. 8-25.
Apparently nothing says “Merry Christmas,” aka “Merii Kurisumasu,” like chowing down on fast food. Not a joke- KFC makes a holiday party bucket pack that is a Japanese Christmas Day Dinner Phenomenon. This new Burger King deal is a way to cut into the Christmas Dinner fast food tradition.
The truth: L4L’s family each year for Christmas Dinner, makes a Stouffer’s Lasagna. Surely you know the “hot chunks of cottage cheese” mystery meat amalgamation of ketchup-like tomato sauce and pasta, monstrosity to which I am referring…Oh lerd it’s awful.
Real Talk: A pizza sized hamburger, even from Burger King, would be a massive upgrade to the Stouffer’s freak-show. Even Real-er Talk: I’m pretty certain I could eat an entire one of these in a sitting. Oh sure, I’d be like a snake and wouldn’t eat for days afterwards, but I’d keep it down.
There’s no shame in my game people, I’d hit this burger six ways to Sunday. Oh why can’t I be in the land of the Rising Sun for Christmas this year!?
Nope, it’s Stouffer’s lasagna and awkward silences for me this Christmas. Hooray.
