French Fry Burger latest weapon in fast-food wars

Burger King has plans to combine the crown jewels of fast-food with a new burger concoction called the French Fry Burger.

You heard right — A french fry burger. But it’s not as crazy as it sounds. The sandwich is basically a beef patty topped with four of the restaurant’s french fries. So, it’s about 360 calories and 19 grams of fat. (Via The Birmingham News)

The French Fry Burger is definitely original. But it doesn’t require any extra funds from Burger King to produce — just insert fries and serve. (Via KRON)

Miami-based Burger King says the new burger will be available starting September 1st, and the chain plans to offer it through the fall. (Via Business Insider)

And you can get your hands on one for just a dollar — some say it’s an attempt to keep up with McDonald’s cheap eats.

But even fast-food tycoon McDonald’s is jumping through hoops trying to bring in more hungry customers, and it’s doing so by stepping up advertising for its Dollar Menu. (Via CNBC)

Mickey D’s also recently introduced the Grilled Onion Cheddar Burger to the list and plans to unveil bone-in chicken wings September 9. (Via McDonald's)

The company hopes additions like these will help revamp the chain’s domestic menu and bring in more cash-strapped customers. (Via Bloomberg)

Other fast-food favorites, like Wendy’s, are following suit by focusing on promoting their most wallet-friendly options in order to keep sales up.
