Lets start off by saying that this is a whopper. I've had several in my life time and they come in many shapes and sizes such as the A1 Steakhouse Whopper, the Angry Whopper, The HA1loween Whopper, double whopper with cheese, etc.
The meat of the whopper is uncanny in taste. There is no mistaking the specific taste of a flame broiled whopper. I could spot one easily with my eyes closed and only my one sense of smell. So you should know what you're getting yourself into with that.
The angry sauce was very tasty. It had heat, it had sweet and it paired well with the sandwich. I always am angry when I get a burger and it doesn't have a signature spread / sauce / topping on it. It's a waste of creating originality to a sandwich and leaves the quality of beef and other toppings to hold itself up to a higher standard. The more you plop on something the more you can potentially get away with what would normally be a mediocre burger. For this sauce in particular I tasted what reminded me of a Quiznos chipotle spread they put on a steak sandwich there. It was tangy, sweet and spicy. I got an infusion of a richer barbecue taste along with mustard and pepper. I'm not sure if we can recreate this exactly, but we'll see what we can bring together.
The bun is red. That's about all you need to say about that. It's said to be made with red hot baked into the bun which is a great marketing tactic to get people talking along with the overuse of red food dye to create that other vibrant aspect, but the taste is no different. There's just not enough heat coming from whatever amount of sauce they used to make it "spicy".
Going into this I knew it wouldn't be my favorite off the bat, b/c I could do without Jalapeños in my sandwich.
Sadly to say, the biggest letdown were the onion petals, a victim of the mayonnaise & moisture affect. Anything breaded and fried in my opinion should not be touched by a liquid to ensure proper crunchiness. That's why onion straws (which are tiny stringy onions fried to a crisp) work so much better than onion petals as a textural/flavor thing on a sandwich. They add that stringy burnt crisp that can hold itself a certain way for a longer period of time.
The bacon was fast food bacon, crisp thin, but salty enough to provide itself to the sandwich.
They did go with american cheese which I can only think of pepperjack in a time like this. Not a deal breaker though.
And lastly the traditional toppings of lettuce, tomato & mayonnaise which work well with any burger.
Novelty Factor: 7/10
