Recreating Discontinued Burger King Menu Items (TASTE TEST)

– Today we beg the king for mercy. – Let’s talk about that. (alarm rings)
(playful theme music) (fire blasts) – Good Mythical Morning. – After declaring independence, Americans wrestled free
from the whims of monarchy with the signing of the
Treaty of Paris in 1783. But then, in 1953, we were
blindsided by the founding and subsequent rise of a
divinely chosen new king: the Burger King. – And as with any mercurial king, BK seems to make decisions
willy nilly despite claiming we can have it our way, and
as such, they have offered and subsequently discontinued menu items with no input from the public. Until today, we say no menu
changes without representation. It’s time for To Be Discontinued:
Burger King edition. – Mythical chef Josh
has faithfully recreated actual Burger King items
that have been discontinued. We’re gonna taste ’em and decide bring it back or nah, it’s whack. – Now put on your acid
wash jeans and turn up the Bananarama because
we about to eat the 80s. BK doubles were a snappy
marketing campaign aimed at selling double cheeseburgers with three specialty flavors including the intriguing pizza cheeseburger. Let’s take a look at a
concerned citizen’s take on the BK doubles. – [Announcer] The following
does not necessarily reflect the opinion of Burger King. – By offering three new burgers, Burger King only proves
they’ll stop at nothing to make America hungry. Two juicy flame-broiled patties, okay. But a pizza double burger with mozzarella? Burger King, you’ve gone too far! – Mm. – You’ve gone too far.
– Too far. Now, unfortunately concerned
citizen Clifford Kendall has also been discontinued. (chuckles) – Oh no. – Well I’m kinda guessing just based on how old he was at the time.
– Rest in peace, concerned citizen Clifford. – Look at this thing. – So we’ve got it right here. Rhett, tell me what’s on this thing. I’m guessing marinara sauce. – Okay basically here’s what we did. Here’s what Josh did. He studied the commercial frame by frame and then compared the ingredient notes with other products that
use similar toppings and then he built the burger
so it’s two single patties from the king himself, layered
with the cheapest mozzarella from the store and marinara sauce so it was pretty simple. I like the idea of this, I’m gonna say. – I remember these. And they also did like a chicken parm. They did a similar thing
to the chicken sandwiches. – The elongated chicken sandwich. That was one of my favorite
sandwiches at Burger King. – Dink it.
– Dink it. – And sink it. (slurps) Trying to get
a little more sauce. – Please don’t slurp
your burger like that. (slurps burger) – It’s good. I could use even more
sauce but it’s tasty. But it’s actually weird
because once you get– – Burger’s a little dry. – Once you get to that Burger King burger and you know you’re in a Burger King zone, it’s kind of a weird idea, actually. – But it’s good. I mean these two flavors go together. They don’t conflict with beef. You feel a little bit sophisticated. Like you might be in
the Tuscan countryside. I don’t know man, I just
like eating burgers. – Mhm. – I think they should bring it back. – It’s good, it’s really good. – [Rhett] Yeah. – [Rhett and Link] Bring it back. – Now let’s zoom forward to June 2016. You may remember an
astonishing combination. Mac and Cheetos. Yes, here’s a commercial for
this Frankenstein’s monster of a mozzarella stick. (“Return of the Mack” by Mark Morrison) ♪ Return of the mack ♪ ♪ And Cheetos ♪ ♪ Return of the mack ♪ ♪ Oh my God ♪ ♪ Return of the mack ♪ ♪ And Cheetos ♪ ♪ You know they come back ♪ ♪ In my hand ♪ ♪ Return of the mack ♪ ♪ Once again ♪ ♪ Return of the mack ♪ ♪ And Cheetos ♪ ♪ Return of the mack ♪ ♪ Oh my God ♪ ♪ Once again ♪ – (chuckles) Man. ♪ And Cheetos ♪ – They blew the budget on that one. – Yeah, they apparently
bought the rights to the 1996 Return of the Mack Mark Morrison hit, which, woo, it’s even
better once you superimpose the king and Chester Cheetah. ♪ And Cheetos ♪ – Yeah! It’s so good but somewhere Macklemore must be feeling really overlooked. (crew chuckles) – Yeah. – Could have been me.
– Could have been. They probably asked. (chuckles) – I’m excited about these. I predict that these
need to be brought back but we haven’t tasted them yet. We’ve recreated the
packaging, look at that. The GMM version. – I’ve got the Flamin’
Hot version over here. You have the regs. – Mm, here’s what we did. We looked at all the flavor reviews. A lot of people said
that it tasted just like Kraft Easy Mac inside
so that’s what we did. We took Kraft Easy Mac,
chilled it, rolled it in a cheese puff curl type situation. Breaded it with Cheeto dust, fried it, added more Cheeto dust, now here we are. – This is super impressive
that you did this without burning it and it’s so in tact. Kudos! They’re not Kudos, but kudos to you. – I’m gonna break this in half
and give it a nice little– – That would be a little
satisfying moment. – [Link] (clicks tongue)
Snap, crackle, pop. – Not quite like the commercial, but– – That’s a different product. – Okay. – Dink it. – Of course it’s good. – It’s very good. – The question is– – Is it good enough to bring back? – I think the taste is
good enough to bring back, but I think at some point,
you get right up against the line of self-respect
that you shouldn’t cross. It’s like, mac and cheese, Cheetos, fried. I don’t think you can have
all three of those things. If you’re a person who respects
yourself just a little bit, you can have two of those things. Maybe fried mac and cheese,
maybe dip your Cheetos in some mac and cheese but
when you do it and you fry it, I just feel like you’re off
the charts at that point. – Rhett– – I mean I’m gonna continue eating it. – Listen man, you deserve it. I deserve it. Let’s not overanalyze it. It’s a beautiful
combination of things that no one would argue with. Even if you don’t like cheese, man. – Your cardiologist would argue with it. – (chuckles) It’s so good though. Whoa cares at this point? – Okay, if we’re throwing
caution to the wind I’ll– – [Rhett and Link] Bring it back. – All right this next one
is a bit controversial because in December 2014,
Burger King announced it was bringing back the Yumbo,
a hot ham and cheese specialty sandwich that was reportedly all the rage in the 70s. Its marketing was heavily
focused on nostalgia. Let’s take a look. (disco music) – Welcome to Burger King,
home of the Yumbo sandwich. – This is Burger King right? – I don’t even know where
I am right now (laughs). – What is going on? – What is a Yumbo? – That’s one of the best
things that came out of the 70s. It’s like sandwich gold. (chuckles) – If the sandwich is as
good as the commercial, it will not be good. – (chuckles) No. Hi, I’m an actor. Where am I? – Yeah here’s why it’s controversial, because when they launched it on Twitter, everybody started
saying, hold on a second. We don’t remember this. No one remembered the Yumbo
and everyone started thinking that either it was that Mandela Effect and we were in a different universe, or Burger King had completely
fabricated this whole thing as a clever marketing campaign. – Dirty dogs.
– But! We did some research. Boopity-boop-boop-boop-boop-boop. And we found out that
it was in fact an item from 68 to 74. So it was a real thing. – Thanks, Snopes. So false alarm.
– Yeah. – But now I’m gonna sound an alarm. (mimics alarm blaring) This looks like something from Arby’s. – Yeah it feels like they’re
crossing out of their territory into someplace they shouldn’t be. Okay so we used the
Burger King hoagie buns. We had to buy some black forest ham because they don’t have
that at Burger King, some Kraft singles
American cheese as well as some mayonnaise and lettuce
from the Burger King. – Hold on, I understand now. We’ve made a ham sandwich. – Isn’t it ironic though
that this is the only thing with actual ham at a place
that sells hamburgers? – Yes. – Hamburgers? This is like something
you eat at the lake. – Mhm. – Know what I’m saying, like
Mom, did you bring anything? I’ve got some ham and cheese sandwiches that are a little hot. – You know that time we
took that really long– – They been in the back of the car. – Took that long tour for
that whole day in Australia and they said that lunch was provided. Then the guy pulled out
sacks of nasty sandwiches. What did he call them? He was like sandwich with salad on it. – He didn’t call ’em sandwiches. He called them something
else that they call them in Australia but I cannot
remember the name of it. – This went nowhere. – All I know is is that
I went to the bathroom ’cause I was like, I’ve got time and I came back out and
I said, “What’s left?” He said, “Egg salad.” (chuckles) And I was very, very disappointed. – I agree so just like Mama makes, just leave it to Mama. I’m not gonna go to a store and buy this. I do like the name though, Yumbo. – But there’s nothing–
– Take the name Yumbo and you can apply it to anything. – Anything else.
– Something else. – ‘Cause there’s nothing
yummy about this at all. It’s just a ham and cheese
sandwich, it’s boring. To the verdict is– – [Rhett and Link] Nah, that’s whack. – And now we come to it. Burger King’s shameless
appropriation of Mexican food known as the Whopperito. Here’s what they did, they
took all of the ingredients of the Whopper, slap chopped ’em up, added queso sauce and
wrapped it up in a tortilla. It was 2016, anything could happen. – Filled with hope. – Take a look at this commercial. – [Announcer] You say
burrito, we say Whopperito. Made with 100% beef, flame-grilled, then seasoned and smothered in queso sauce and topped with fresh veggies. Burger King just turned
a Whopper into a burrito. It’s the Whopperito and
it’s only at Burger King. – You say burrito, we say Whopperito, I say probably should start keto. (Rhett chuckles) – This seems like the kind
of thing that you would do late at night and not tell anyone about. You know what I’m saying,
I don’t know if this is the kind of thing you
break out in the boardroom. – Well, I would tell
you how we made it but– – You know.
– It’s pretty obvious. I mean I could have made this. But I still made Josh make it. – I don’t think that you would have rolled the tortilla that nice, that’s what I say. – I’m gonna get a nice cross-section here. – I want a cross-section
just ’cause I wanna eat from the cross-section. Why don’t you cut the table a
little bit while you’re at it? – Oh gosh, there’s the
tomato part in there. That’s tomato, I gotta get that out. Gotta get that out of my bite. No tomato on my Whoppers. Should have made it myself. – [Rhett] Extra beef in there. – Here’s the thing, public
response was extremely negative even though there are 146
people on the Facebook page bring back the Whopperito, Burger King. – [Rhett] That’s a movement. – I gotta weigh the fact
that people didn’t like it, A, against taste, but
B, against convenience. I mean it’s a Whopper
that you can just whoop at any point, one handed. – I’m going with two. This is pretty nice. – It actually doesn’t
taste that nice to me. – Well then you don’t like a Whopper. ‘Cause all it is is a Whopper. – I thought that’s what was gonna happen. But now that I’m eating
it, the sum of the parts is better than just the
parts shoved in a tortilla. It’s like somebody ate a
Whopper, regurgitated it, and now I’m re-eating it. – Yeah this is how I like my Whoppers. Ripped up and put in a tortilla. I’ve just figured it out. – McDonald’s did a similar
thing with the Big Mac in like a snack wrap
thing for a little bit. That didn’t work either. There’s something about
this experience that feels wrong to me. – I think it’s the ripped
up burger that feels like a little kid did it. – That’s exactly what it is. – You expect to look back
there and see a four year old just ripping patties up. – And it makes a big difference. I mean it’s wrong.
– If they made a specialty meat for it that
was still the Burger King beef but it was more taco-ish. – If it was shaped like
it would be on a pizza. – Okay I’ve come around. I agree with you. We ain’t bringing this back. – [Rhett and Link] Nah, that’s whack. – And so your magnificence
Mr. Burger King, we beseech you to bring
back the pizza burger and the mac and Cheetos, please, please. – Please. Thank you for liking,
commenting, and subscribing. – You know what time it is. – Hi I’m Melanie, this is
Alyssa from Manhattan, Kansas doing a kid’s meal challenge and it’s– – [Both] Time to spin
the Wheel of Mythicality. – Boom with a force!
– Yeah! Making a difference out there, people. Click the top link to
watch us try one more discontinued BK item
featuring Shaq himself. – Shaquille O’Neals? – In Good Mythical More. – And to find out where
the Wheel of Mythicality’s going to land. – [Rhett] Sick stickers, brah. Where’s you get ’em? – [Link], brah. – [Rhett] So sick, brah. – [Link] Totally, brah. I just put ’em all over my board, brah. – [Rhett] So sick, brah. – [Link] Yeah.

  4. to kick a tomato to the curb is like sors minus all tomato for one week All tomato includes any thing made of a tomato

  5. They know BK has the Mac&Cheetos in the super market…I wonder If he looked at that while making them…

  6. The whopperito had a taco flavoring that made it a bit spicy and more like Mexican food it was literally like a paste that you mixed with the chopped beef

  7. I wish they would of done the whiplash whopper….then teach me how to make those crispy hot red pepper yummies

  8. The Big Mac snack wrap I actually liked. I would buy it if McD’s brought it back. Never tried the Whopperito though so hmmm, I might have liked that too.

  9. I really miss the grilled chicken Caesar sandwich. It was delicious and about the only fast food I ever ate.

  10. I had the mac and cheetos from Burger King. They really weren't that good. Maybe it was the one I went to. They were overcooked and dry. I feel like Josh makes these items better than the original company did.

  11. I know this video is old but that Australian most likely said sanga or sang-ah as a fellow aussie we say this alot

  12. I think that the Mac and cheese cheetos should be just mozzarella sticks breaded in cheeto powder. Screw the Mac and cheese.

  13. Last i checked you can still get the ham and cheese sandwiches at bk πŸ˜‚ its just not advertised at all but they still sometimes have the ingredients

  14. I don't if anyone has said this but Sheetz which is a Pennsylvania thing has a burger like the pizza burger but they put mozzarella sticks on it.

  15. I miss the stacker and how low key my Bk made them for full triple meal 2.99 till 2016

  16. Burger King has honestly gone down hill. They used to be GREAT in the early 2000's. But recently now in 2019, i get sick and throw up every single time i eat a whopper.

  17. Mac and Cheetos were so freaking amazing I wish you could still buy them I’ll take the frozen ones just bring them back

  18. I worked at burger king for 3 years and they did indeed have a special taco seasoning to put with the burger. But the burger was literally just the whopper patty diced up and thrown in a pan with some taco seasoning lmao

  19. You say burrito we say whopperrito I say passito passito swameswama sito…. despacito… 🀣🀣
