This is quite possibly the most emotional post you’ll ever read. Please know that I never wanted to do this on my blog, but I’m mad as hell that this happened to me, because this was something I really loved. We’re going to just get into it…
Dear Burger King,
In the early 2000’s, you added Chicken Fries to the menu and my heart was really happy. You see, when I grade you against other fast food restaurants, you have never scored too high. I lost 100 pounds eating Mcdoubles, so it’s hard to cut the ties with Mcdonalds… Yet, when I was in high school, I would sometimes choose Chicken Fries, because they were so great. Yet, you never reigned too high, and that’s just the way it was.
Fast forward to 2016. Fast forward to your summer promotion. The Mac & Cheetos.
Burger King, I am telling you wholeheartedly, I have NEVER felt about this food item the way I’ve ever felt about a food in my life. Sure, you had some mixed reviews on Youtube. Maybe not everyone was like me. Maybe some people don’t understand you. I do. I did. And what did you do? You broke my heart.
Every single opportunity to eat fast food, I chose Mac & Cheetos. I DROVE DOWNTOWN, WALKED THROUGH SKYWAYS, AND PARKED ON A STREET NEAR CONSTRUCTION TO WALK INTO AN UNSAFE BURGER KING FOR YOUR MAC AND CHEETOS AND YOU BROKE MY HEART.
I spent my weekends making multiple trips to your store. I spent my time advocating for your Mac & Cheetos, and telling MANY people to try them. Burger King, I DROVE SALES TO YOUR MAC AND CHEETOS. YOU CAN NOT TELL ME THEY DID NOT DO WELL. I KEPT THEM ALIVE.
Yet, here we are. Last weekend, I drove up to Burger King, and my fiance ordered what I consider to be heaven: “Mac & Cheetos and Chicken Fries”. Yet, the very friendly worker said “I’m sorry but we are not serving those anymore”.
I was dumbfounded. How can you take something that I love, and rip it from my life? You hurt me, no, you BROKE me. I just want you to know that I left that drive thru and went to Taco Bell. Yes, I moved on that quickly, because I had to. And you know what? The Crunchwrap Supreme filled the void in my heart where the Mac & Cheetos were supposed to sit. Where they can never sit again.
Here’s your chance. Put your Mac & Cheetos back on the menu & give me true happiness again. Heal my broken heart & make me whole. You do not understand, this is a break up. This is a break up and YOU LEFT ME. LEFT ME WITHOUT THE BEST THING TO EVER HIT A FAST FOOD MENU AND I AM ANGRY. THIS IS GOODBYE (unless you bring them back, then I’ll run arms wide open to the nearest BK)
