Burger King’s Summer Menu Might Include a Pulled Pork Sandwich and Sweet Potato Fries

With summer just a few days away, fast food brands will begin making the transition to their summer-friendly menu items, and Burger King is no exception.

We just received a tip from a Burger King employee noting that the chain is training their staff to handle a new summer menu that includes an apparent wider release of the Bacon Sundae, a couple flavors of Frozen Lemonades, a range of new BBQ-inspired sandwiches and the addition of Sweet Potato Fries.

The menu will be available as a promotion for three months, according to our source. No telling what items will stay on the menu following the three-month course, and no confirmation, yet, if this is a nationwide menu or just limited to a few locations.

Some notable additions come in the form of a Carolina BBQ Whopper and the Memphis BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich. The Carolina BBQ Whopper features a ‘creamy coleslaw sauce,’ lettuce, tomato, red onion, Sweet Carolina BBQ sauce, thick-cut bacon and Pepper Jack cheese. The Memphis BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich features the same ‘creamy coleslaw sauce,’ white onion, Smoky Sweet Memphis BBQ Sauce all over pulled pork.

Here is a closer look at the rest of the menu items:

McDonald’s To Start Dealing Frozen Strawberry Lemonade

A Jacksonville, FL location has been on the heavy promotion tip for a new McCafé variety in the form of a Frozen Strawberry Lemonade drink. Pricing sits at $1.59 for a small, but according to the Jacksonville location’s Twitter as of late, the restaurant is pushing a #ThirstyThursdays for the rest of the month with free samples being distributed between 11 am – 2 pm and 4 pm – 7 pm.

Restaurant chains with the reach that McDonald’s commands usually test products in very specific markets before going nationwide. In the case of this particular beverage, the Frozen Strawberry Lemonade is being introduced in Florida with some impeccable pre-spring break timing. More news on any national distribution of this drink is to come, until then, citizens of Florida will have to permeate to the rest of the country if this drink is a winner or not.
