Burger King Debuts New Umami-Filled Garlic Burgers
Garlic lovers (and those needing to repel vampires for some reason), this is for you.
For a limited time only, Burger King is offering a brand-new menu with garlic burgers, garlic drumlets, garlic fries, and even a garlic dipping sauce for your nuggets.
Headlining the launch is this (c)lovely pair, the Gourmet Garlic Chicken King Burger and the Gourmet Garlic Angus Beef Burger, which are set to blaze your tastebuds away with all the garlic you could ever ask for.
If you’ve got any upcoming dates planned, you might want to steer clear of this ‘destroyer-of-kisses’ menu – or at least, remember to brush your teeth super thoroughly before heading out to meet bae.
Choose from Angus Beef or spicy chicken
Nestled between two corn-dusted sourdough buns, Burger King’s Gourmet Garlic Chicken King Burger features the beloved Chicken King Patty from its Spicy Chicken King counterpart.
What sets the latest version apart, however, are the copious amounts of decadent and gooey garlic sauce that’ll greet every bite.
This is a theme that follows the rest of the items in the new menu. Slathered generously over the crispy patty, the combination makes for a dose of umami heaven.
Once you sink your teeth into the tender patty, the spicy juices will coat your tongue before the wave of garlic hits the back of your throat. If you enjoy intense flavours, this will be right up your alley.
Also ruling the menu is a beefy king sitting on its garlic throne, the Gourmet Garlic Angus Beef Burger.
Like its chicken counterpart, the beef burger is served between two corn-dusted sourdough buns and boasts the same umami-filled garlic sauce that accentuates the juicy, flame-grilled Angus Beef patty.
And yes, those petal-shaped chunks inside are sliced-up garlic chips.
Burger King is generous with these chips as well, which means you’re pretty much guaranteed to get at least one with every mouthful.
Gooey garlic sauce goes with everything
The gooey garlic sauce and crunchy garlic chips continue to feature prominently in Burger King’s new menu.
The tantalising allure of fries just got even harder to resist, no thanks to the Garlic Fries.
Buried in a blanket of thick garlic sauce and garlic chips, the only bad thing about this combination is that it will eventually have to come to an end.
Lightly but perfectly spiced, the Garlic Mexican Drumlets marry the tasty seasoning with garlic sauce and garlic chips (yes, there’s more of them).
If you’re more of a nuggets person, you can now enjoy Burger King’s famed BK Nuggets dipped in Garlic Sauce, which adds an indulgent new flavour profile to a classic favourite.
Just don’t forget to leave some for others if you’re sharing. Or not.
Last but not least, this promotion also sees the return of the Banana Pie, another fan favourite.
A crispy pastry pocket is filled with a thick and almost gelatinous custard-like filling. If you’ve ever had smashed banana fritters, they taste exactly like that but packaged in a familiar dessert shape.

Spice up your life with some garlicky goodness
Deliciousness aside, research has shown that garlic can offer some pretty impressive health benefits, such as protecting against illnesses and lowering the risk of diseases.
Now that certainly sounds like a good reason to feast on it, especially when it makes dishes so yummy and umami-filled.
Just don’t forget to use some powerful mouthwash before heading to an important meeting… or inviting your chronically nocturnal and porcelain-skinned friends over for mahjong night.
