Bizarre food combinations are becoming increasingly common nowadays. Recently, a street food vendor came up with an unusual dish called ‘Mango Maggi’, pairing the classic instant noodles with the iconic summer fruit. These fusion dishes and unusual preparations often pique the internet’s curiosity. There is no knowing what street food vendors will come up with, next! This time, however, popular burger brand Burger King has too hopped onto the bandwagon of bizarre food combinations. A screenshot from their new menu in Germany has left internet users confused. Wondering what it was? Take a look and see for yourself:
Shared on Twitter by user @MasterOtenko, the clicks have gone viral receiving nearly 300k likes and 34k retweets. “May someone of my non-German mutuals explain German Burger King to me,” he wrote in his tweet.
In the clicks, we could see an array of burgers being sold on the official website of Burger King Germany. Some of the combinations indeed were strange and unusual. Fried Egg and Banana, Gherkins and Marmalade, Vanilla Ice Cream and Olives, Strawberry Ice Cream and Fries were some of the bizarre fillings inside the burgers being sold at the fast-food outlet.
Burger King Germany’s new menu created quite a stir online, sparking much outrage amongst burger lovers on Twitter. Some pointed out that the menu was part of the promotional campaign for Mother’s Day – the fast-food giant was offering these burgers to curb pregnancy cravings for expectant mothers. Other Twitter users, however, were still not convinced with these bizarre burgers from Burger King Germany.
Take a look at the reactions on Twitter:
As a German I am obligated to inform you that this is a humorous advertisement, pulling from a exaggerated reading of changing taste in food during pregnancy, released on mother’s day.
In Germany the bread usually gets more creative than the stuff on it/in between.— Corp. Neo (@vanHawkhouse) May 15, 2022

germany still has to apologize for stuff like having a pizza with corn and hotdogs on it and calling it “american style”.— anthony rowland (@Rowland808) May 16, 2022
Klaus Schmaing, director marketing at Burger King Deutschland, said to The Drum, “Our survey among pregnant women and mothers clearly indicates that pregnancy cravings are not just a myth. These cravings are as real as pregnant women’s desire for special food combinations. This brought us to the idea to turn the most popular pregnancy cravings into pregnancy Whopper sandwiches. As a result, combinations like cucumber with jam or sausage with chocolate cream have been created – and expectant moms have enthusiastically tried them.”
