'Elder Care' is not an easy thing, much less am I trained for it, my chilluns. It takes lots of love and patience and a few bucks in your pocket when you wake up toooooooo....
 
"I wanna...I wanna...I WAAANNNA!!!...'2 for $4' croissan'wich breakfast special, pleeaauuuuzz?!! Your mommy loves you and so would your dad, if he could remember why..."
 
...and you have a conference call in 30 minutes. Yea - the local BK was just what the doctor ordered, plus they had this thing called an 'Eggnormous Burrito' on their menu! And, well? I was hooongry, too!
Taste? Pretty darned fair!
Portion size? Quite filling!
Coffee 'Rinse-Through' (2 large cups, black, no sugar)? Yellow Turd! Guess those eggs had some food coloring that came right out - sure glad it wasn't in my laundry.

Pickles don't belong in any burrito.

^WinkYou also caught that! Couldn't agree more - especially since that is supposed to be spicy conqueso cheese-like stuff on the dead cow material.

Oh, now I get it.  It's Burger King, so it's a cheeseburger (of sorts) in a tortilla instead of a bun.  That explains the pickle.  Like I can't imagine what that would taste like.

What are those red strips? My mind is telling me that logically it should be red peppers. But my eyeballs see Apple strips and that's just outright wrong.

By the way in my opinion, pickles don't belong on a burger or burrito. A pickle slice on the side is acceptable but crunching into a cold pickle chip ruins the burger experience for me. I know I'm the odd one on this but gag! Never liked the pickle chips on my burger.

I simply GOTTA have pickles on a burger.

GOTTA have 'em.

It ain't a burger without pickle slices.

My guess is that BK "burrito" thing looks nothing like the pic when you unwrap it.

Probably just all slopped in there together like a pile of goo.

My money is on tomatoes.

I remember McD's used to (may still) have burger "wraps", basically a Big Mac or Quarter Pounder with a tortilla instead of a bun. They weren't bad, all the flavors were the same, just a different bread texture.

You are right about the tomatoes.

The pic Pa posted is the Whopperito. His Eggnormous Burrito pic didn't show up, so what we are discussing here is the Whopperito.

There are plenty of video reviews on YouTube.

Here's a short one that shows the innards...



Any time I want to try some new fast food item, I go to YouTube first and check out a few reviews.

You get a better idea of what you're gonna get for your money.

I've been having this hankerin' lately for some cheap fast food---McDonalds or Burger King.  Coupla cheeseburgers, some fries and a shake.  I haven't had it since 2005.  I've gone to better places (like Carl's Jr and Five Guys) for burgers, but for some reason, I want the McBurger King experience.
 
I'd also like a few Sausage Egg McMuffins.

You are not alone. I remove the pickles from burgers and other sandwiches then eat them separately.

MrsD and I call that "The White Castle Effect". Kinda along the same lines as that "Eat steak every day and eventually a greasy burger will taste amazing" thing. White Castles are incredibly crappy little almost-no-meat "burgers" on steamed buns that are almost mush before you even start to chew, but every now and then, nothing sounds better and nothing else will do until you get some. Same way with Cinci style chili cheese coneys. Total garbage, but man oh man, when you want one, you want one.

I agree, there are tons of better burgers out there, but sometimes a McDouble (or three) is just what the cardiologist ordered. Same with McMuffins. It's the egg... or rather the way they cook the egg... that sets it apart from something like a Jimmy Dean out of the microwave. But damn, and I've touched on this before, that's a $2 egg!

Ouch

I have gone from, give me something good and expensive everyday, to just something decent that won't make me feel ill. I have caused enough of a stink with City Hall that I don't dare drive even after just one drink. I have a spicy chicken sandwich from the convenience store that warms up really well.
 
Some corn on the cob will make it a really nice meal...Mama said they will order out at work today.
She will be full and probably bring home leftovers from that.

Around here we have the same thing, except it's called Krystal's.



The burgers are often called "Sliders".

I can eat about 10 or 12 of them.

Yea, 'sliders' to some, 'death bombs' for other of us (ex-) drunks.
Enough grease and substance to stabilize one until you could stumble out in front of your car and puke, right before the police pull up.
And ol'Mule? I DID TOO post a pic of an eggnormous burrito before the whopperito - you may have faulty shades, there...

I didn't say you didn't post a pic of the egg burrito PaW, I just said it wasn't showing up.

Apparently, you reposted it since then.

It's not "Eggnormous" unless it's made with an ostrich egg...  LOL (That's about equal to 24 chicken eggs.)

I put relish on my burgers instead of pickle chips.  Works great as long as you don't overdo it... Wink

Not sweet relish, I hope....

I used to buy dill relish for hot dogs...



...and would occasionally put it on a burger, but now I just make my own.

Dice up a bunch of dill pickle slices, then some peppers and onions, part of a tomato if I have one on hand that I need to get rid of and even a little bit of pepperoncini (salad peppers).

Put it all in a small jar with some dill pickle juice.

Tasty.

Relish on hot dogs is OK but I prefer diced onion and sauerkraut.

I think I really would possibly try a 'Whopperito' if BK would stop showing the pickle in the burrito. That is just wrong.

Just tried the Whopperito, the burger one, not the breakfast one. All in all, not too bad. It didn't come round and plump like they show, but rather it was flat, but pretty much what you expect. All the main ingredients of a Whopper (sans condiments)in a tortilla instead of a bun. The sauce that replaces cheese has a tiny bit of a kick, but less of a kick than the stuff they give you with your onion rings. The pickle made it just Whopper enough to eat a bit like a burger and less like a burrito that they didn't break up the beef for. Easier to eat than a Whopper, so pretty good for in the car, since Whoppers tend to shed shreds all over your lap while you're trying to steer with your knee.

Don't know if I'll ever get one again... just don't eat that sort of thing often enough to blow a bad meal on it... but I don't regret trying it. Pretty decent crap.

^^Thanks Darthy - I've been thinking of grabbing one the last few days, but this business about a pickle inside a burrito really is too much for me (psycologically), but I'm certainly going to try, now.
Sorry to hear they are on the weak-side with the spicy cheese.

Big smileThat stuff is GREAT. I found full-size containers of it in Dollar Tree, when it first came out. I could drink it straight out of the bottle.

^  Sigh.  I don't count on the Dollar Trees here having anything I go there for.  These DTs around here are sh*tholes---dark, dirty, shelves half-empty, products arranged haphazardly, etc.  I don't know why this is.  The ones I used to go to in California were always neat and well-stocked.

But seriously, you can get it for under two bucks a bottle at Walmart.

Dollar Tree is weird.
 
Up on Wolfy Island is where I found the Kraft dressing on the shelf. It was a bit of a prissy/model 'Dollar Tree' as was required so the rich people would go in and feel a little comfortable and maybe spend money.  Go down into Buffalo and the local Dollar Tree often was a direct reflection of the surrounding neighborhood (and yes, there were even those that one would avoid ending up in a the back of the store in some dimly-lit isle). Many stores in this class of neighborhood had food coolers and also sold some clothing which enabled local residents to do all of their shopping at one stop, should they desire. Down around Chesapeake, Virginia (Dollar Tree headquarters), this holds even more true, plus there are 'variations on a theme' with 'Dollar Deals' and a few other Dollar Tree off-shoots where everything was NOT $1. I was floored when I walked into a Dollar Tree that was the size of a regular grocery store. Half of the store was groceries and they even sold beer and wine. Although I was amazed, that's about all I was, along with the general public as the store closed in about a year.
And about California Dollar Trees? They probably would be 'weird' to us Eastern-types, doncha know. I bet they are stocked and maintained by fruits and nuts.

I've developed some kind of repetitive stress related pain in my left wrist from holding this tablet in front of my face for hours everyday.

Went to Dollar Tree today and picked up a couple of these...



Not bad at all.

Certainly not for a buck apiece.

Got one on now.

Ahhhhhhhhhh.... relief.
