Burger King wants to "end the beef" between themselves and McDonald's (for just one day, at one special location) in honor of the International Day of Peace. Because, you know, nothing says peace like a frankenburger. Ah, capitalism. Here's their proposal:
In honor of Peace Day, September 21st, Burger King is inviting McDonald's to team up to create the McWhopper — a burger built for world peace. If they say yes, we’ll mark this ‘burger wars” ceasefire with a one day pop-up McWhopper shop in Atlanta on Peace Day, halfway between our two headquarters.
Would you eat a McWhopper in the name of peace?
Update: Looks like you won't have to eat one, because McDonald's has declined Burger King's offer with a Facebook post that can only be described as a sick burn:
You may have heard a McDonald's employee confirmed the existence of a McDonalds secret menu including items like the "Land, Sea, and Air" and the "McGangBang," but they aren't the only fast food place with epic secret food hacks. Check out these other secret menu items before your next trip to the drive-through.
Redditor u/orchidhibiscus, who seems to have since deleted his account, claimed to be a manager at a UK McDonalds and set out to answer some questions people had about fast food production.
Then someone dropped the big question:
If you are unaware, the idea of the secret menu was popularized by the west coast burger chain In-N-Out. They have a slew of items that can be made from mixing and matching other items on the existing menu and just decided to go ahead and let it be its own thing.
In that particular AMA, only two of those items were defined. Users seemed to agree that the Land, Air, and Sea burger probably consisted of beef, chicken and fish patties. And the McGangbang is not just a classy name, rather it's a Jr. Chicken sandwich encased within a double cheezeburger.
Actually, our customers are pretty clever when it comes to customizing their orders with our menu items, so you may have seen some of their creations online. But we have no official secret menu of our own.
