Blog: Beanburger bummer

Catherine Sleep | 10 October 2003

When I was vegetarian (student days, highly principled and couldn’t afford meat), I occasionally ordered a bean burger if dragged into a fastfood restaurant. Now my scouts tell me the Burger King beanburger is not vegetarian. That’s disappointing. As my contact reported, only BK’s Veggie Burger is certified as 100% vegetarian, so it’s not as if the company is mislabelling or misadvertising its products. Nevertheless, a beanburger is generally thought of as a veggie product and this could confuse people. I took a look at BK’s UK website to see if I could locate nutritional info, but found none.

However, I did become familiar with a cheery character called SpongeBob, who apparently wears square pants – BK’s answer to Ronald McDonald I guess.
