Burger King Puts Another New Whopper on the Menu

Let the Halloween fast food wars of 2022 begin.

McDonald’s (MCD) rarely celebrates holidays with menu additions. Aside from the Shamrock Shake, which ostensibly ties to St. Patrick’s Day since it was introduced using the now cringe-worthy Irish stereotype Uncle O’Grimacey, the company doesn’t usually acknowledge any special events.

And, while reindeer McNuggets for Christmas or a Red, White and Blue Big Mac (a burger served rare with white cheddar and blue cheese) might make sense, the chain has generally not gone in that direction. The fast food giant has, however, historically honored Halloween as in the past it released plastic buckets designed to be used for trick or treating (although from a practical basis they are a little small for that)
