Succumbing to Marketing
Monday, 2009 January 12 - 12:54 pm
After being bombarded with ads for Burger King's "Angry Whopper" yesterday, I finally succumbed and tried one today. I'd characterize it as more of a "Mildly Annoyed" Whopper. On a scale from 0 to 5, with 0 being "not at all spicy" and 5 being "ridiculous to the point of not being able to taste anything else", it rates just a 1.

By the way, can someone who's worked in the fast food industry answer a question for me? Are the hamburger buns squashed on-site at each franchise location, or are they shipped from the factory that way?

I always envisioned it as being a station in the kitchen. One person cooks, one person assembles and wraps and another person sits on it.

Snerk!

I remember when the marketing thing happened to me with the Hardee's $6 burger (or had they changed the name to Thickburger by then?). I finally bought one and it sucked -- way overcooked. But I tried again and really liked it (for a fast-food burger, anyway). Then I had a bunch more. Fortunately, the consulting gig near the Hardee's eventually ended.
