The worldwide whopper

(That's Shanghai)

Burger King, now with eight locations in Shanghai, offers guests a delicious DIY project: the custom-made Whopper. Here, you can choose to "have it your way" with any number of flame-broiled patties, vegetable toppings and your choice of cheeses and condiments.

But while the classic Whopper can be tailored to your tastes, Burger King operations around the world go even further to accommodate burger lovers. In particular, the Whopper has a number of regional variants which take into account local culinary traditions and preferences. So while visiting far-off lands, why not get a little culture with your fast-food meal? We are especially intrigued by:

The California Fresh Whopper: This burger is made with a sour cream-onion dressing and cucumbers instead of pickles and mayo. Available in Sweden.

The Dark Whopper: A burger that’s not afraid to show its masculine side, this one features pepperjack cheese, black-pepper ketchup and a secret recipe ‘grill sauce’. Available in the UK and Ireland.

The Texas Double Whopper: As it turns out, there are actually three things that come from Texas; this burger is topped with jalapeño peppers and bacon. The ketchup is replaced with mustard. Available in the US and Canada.

The Rodeo Whopper: A cowboy classic which replaces the raw onion and ketchup with onion rings and barbecue sauce. Available in Argentina and Israel.
