Doing the Texas (Double Whopper) Two-Step

Got around to trying the Texas Double Whopper today after busting my ass in the yard weeding gardens and spreading mulch. Weighing in at almost a pound, Burger King's Texas Double Whopper is one of the messiest burgers I've ever had the pleasure of eating.

Two Whopper patties, American cheese, lettuce, tomato, bacon, onion and a heaping helping of mayo, mustard, pickles and jalapenos made this burger near impossible to fit in my big mouth. Much to my surprise the jalapenos actually had some flavor -- unlike the BK bacon which is completely undistinguished -- and added a pleasant spicy zing, especially when they combined with the yellow mustard.

As far as chain burgers go, it's a hefty and satisfying meat-a-thon, though it's not cheap (almost $7 for a "value meal" with medium soda and fries or onion rings), and trying to eat this thing while driving could cause highway fatality rates to skyrocket.
