$2.00 Burger King's Fish N Crisp Burger: A Failure.

Wednesday, April 1, 2015

When Burger King announced their $2.00 Fish N Crisp Burger, McDonald's responded by lowering the price of their Fillet O Fish Burger to $2.00.

I have always been a fan of the Fillet O Fish and would order the $5.00 Extra Value Meal whenever I visited McDonald's in the past. When they dropped the price of Fillet O Fish to $2.00, I was overjoyed.

Then, I would order two Fillet O Fish for $4.00 instead of spending $5.00 on the Extra Value Meal. I am not crazy about the fries and soft drink. Just that when the Fillet O Fish was priced at $3.95 each, it was kind of silly not to take the fries and soft drink for only another $1.05.

Anyway, Burger King's claim that their Fish N Crisp Burger offers better value for money with one slice of cheese, not half, and 40% more fish got me curious enough to give it a try. Yes, AK is a sucker for value for money deals.

Poster outside the restaurant. Looks good, right?

So, I tried.

Hmmmm... Doesn't look quite the same.

Opened it up to add some ketchup. The bun felt stale.
The piece of fish looks to be the same size as the Fillet O Fish's.

The bread is definitely stale. This was from lifting the top earlier.

The fish is sooo salty! Why so salty?

Very disappointing.

Staying with McDonald's Fillet O Fish.

Burger King's Fish N Crisp Burger gets a resounding "C.M.I." from AK.

Hi Matthew,

I am sure it is misrepresentation but no one is going to bother to take action for $2. -.-"

Now AK is a food critic?

Look out food bloggers! There's a new dog in the house!

Lucky you never cross-over to cosmetics and fashion accessories - those lifestyle fashion sort of things.

Those bloggers there are serious. Got sue here sue there one. Fiercely protective of their turfs.

Yikes. Salty fish = unfresh

I thought of dyeing my hair blonde and wearing blue contact lens but I decided not to step on the turf of a certain butterfly. LOL. ;p

How to blog about fashion when I wear my t-shirts for 2 to 3 decades and patch my trousers when they become a bit drafty? I could end up killing the industry in Singapore. The industry big wigs would probably put a bounty on my non-blonde head too. -.-"

As for cosmetics, I will leave it to the SKIII users like you. May your skin shine brighter with each passing day. Just an off the top of my head remark. ;p

Is this a paid advertisement by McDonald? :P

Or you're invested in McDonald

Just kidding..

Hi Sebastian,

I wished. ;p

And I wished again. ;p

Maybe, I should send this to McDonald's and see if they might give me one year's supply of Fillet O Fish as a token of appreciation. ;p
