No, it's not the 1st of April.

Just in time for your mom Santa to toss this in your Christmas stocking, Burger King has released a limited-edition men's body spray that evokes the smell of freshly broiled Whoppers.

But isn't this what they spray on the burgers already for authenticity? No!

According to a press release, "The King is setting hearts ablaze for the holidays with his new scent of choice. FLAME™, a new men's body spray by Burger King Corp., features the scent of seduction with the hint of flame-broiled meat. A favorite of the King, FLAME™ is available for purchase for a limited time at select Ricky's retailers in-store or online."

That's just nasty.

I had a friend who worked at Sonic a while back. When he came over wearing the same clothes he had on at work, it would almost make me gag.

Why? Who wouldn't want to smell like a burger? Have you no sense of occasion? Seductive, aromatic... hot.

In fact, I think I'll call my next child 'Whopper'.

Of course. Always try to upsell to a meal.

I honestly couldn't come up with a worse idea if I tried.

Meanwhile, do you have to refrigerate the spray so it doesn't go rancid? :p

It should be a time release spray. At first, the sensual smell of the whopper then, what's this french fries. Oh wait that's not all, is that the smell of a hot apple pie next? :eek:

Would it be inappropriate at this point to observe that, it's bad enough that meat-eaters taste worse than vegetarians, now they have to smell worse than them too? :eek: ;)

Ahem, so I hear.

Am I the only one who loves the smell of burger? I'd be interested in smelling this, but I'd probably want to eat all day.

The sad thing is, I'm really tempted to buy a few cans of this just beacuse it's so absurd...and can show people that it is indeed real.

What a fantastically simple marketing gimmick. With very little effort or cost Burger King have made headlines around the world. And now I'm hungry. Clever :).

I am - I had a breakfast of some baked beans and vegetarian sausages instead - the advertising didn't work so well on me :D.

Does BK actually have a vegetarian burger? I am oblivious :o.

heh This is the best marketing ever. No one wants to smell like a burger, but someone would get this as a joke, smell it, then instantly want a whopper.

I've had the "Hungry Jack's" (aka: Australian Burger King) veggie burger, and it was tolerable. Usually stuck with the Whopper though.

The Urban Hunter sat quietly, the only noise around are the birds on a nearby abandon office building. It's been a few days into the hunting season. Our hunter has positioned himself around one of the many abandoned Burger King outlets. He uses the latest in sprays, Burger King FLAME, to attract the ever present, and easy prey, the Fast food eater.

It could be tolerable with the sides on it, but why not toss the "Burger" out , and have a lettuce and tomato sandwich instead. :D

Hunter sprays "Flame" in the woods, then gets attacked by bear thinking he's the food. :p

It's actually not half bad, either. Although it would be much better if it were available in the whopper format (optional cheese, and all the stuff that's on a Whopper).

I go through phases of mostly not eating meat and eating meat... I remember in 2001 when I was going back to veggie, I was obsessed with the Whopper.... :o

I can't find a link on BK's website to the other one. That makes me think this is not a BK sponsored product. Why would BK market this but not link it on their own website.

They've actually been doing really well by positioning themselves as the manly, couldn't-care less-about-health, non-veggie eating bad boys of fast food.

While the others chains try to throw salads and healthy sides on their menu, Burger King introduces The Stacker (with no vegetables whatsoever - not even pickles). They, and to a certain extent Carl's Jr, are generating a very strong customer base. There have even been attempts to copy this from the other chains (like Wendy's Baconator).

Of course, I guess it's a little like cigarettes - they need to get a lot of new customers to replace the ones dying of heart attacks on a daily basis.

I used to like Burger King, but somehow we've parted ways. There's a BK in my area that's also a shawarma place... they share the space 50/50. 9 out of 10 times I walk in there, I go for the shawarma. One day I thought I'd try the new BK Steakhouse burger. It sounded great in theory: big beefy patty, bacon, crispy onions, BBQ sauce. How could you go wrong with that?

The first sign something was wrong was when the cashier asked if I wanted the regular one or the "loaded" one. "What's the difference?", I asked. "The loaded one has baked potato and sour cream and chives on it."

Uh...

I went for the "non-loaded" burger. And the thing was a disgusting mess. The burger was much wider than the bun, but paper thin. (Who do they think they're fooling?!) And sauce was everywhere, dripping all over the paper wrapping. You couldn't even pick this thing up without getting your fingers all messy. The worst burger I've ever had. I very nearly threw it out half-way through (and that is HUGE for me, I have a reputation among my friends as the guy that will eat ANYTHING).

And I didn't even think to look at the nutritional info.

BK indeed still sells the BK Veggie, at least in my market area anyway. That's what I usually get on the rare occasion I'm there. (I'm more of an Asian food fan myself; I never was much into burgers.)

BBWs usually figure out the difference between chopped steak and "tubesteak", if you know what I mean, nudge nudge.

Oh, and the term "chubby chaser" has been adopted by the gay community to describe men who prefer large men. We straight lovers of large ladies like to use another acronym: FA (fat admirer).
