COVID-19 Experience: 2020 Imagined As A Burger…

I had a number of subjects I considered post-worthy after surveying my usual tip-sheet’ food new sources. But one took the cake as the overall most fun and – in a backward sort of way – one of the most creative. Burger King Brazil surveyed its fans on how they felt about the year 2020…

Anyway… BK – in any country you choose – has some really enticing real, true specials on right now. Just check the online menu… And be grateful they’re not planning on actually serving that… Thing. (I assume it has something to do with a shortage of Chicken feet…)
