Burger King Just Added a Ton of $1 Menu Items
Right now, some of the best deals on Burger King's menu include special prices on French fries, the Original Chicken Sandwich, Croissan'wich sandwiches, and, of course, the Whopper. The prices range from $1 to $20, but starting in late 2020, the chain is adding quite a few items to the brand-new "$1 Your Way Menu."
Head to BK on Dec. 28 to get a classic Bacon Cheeseburger, Chicken Jr. sandwich, value fries, or a value soda for just $1 for a limited time. The chain isn't afraid to call out its competition and says, unlike others (hint: the Dollar Menu at McDonald's), everything on this menu is strictly $1.

"We know that value is extremely important to our guests, especially now," the chief marketing officer of Burger King North America, Ellie Doty, said in a statement Eat This, Not That! received via email. "That's why we set out to create a menu that offers craveable products, like our Bacon Cheeseburger, that can't be found at the same price anywhere else."
To celebrate the launch, you may have heard about a $1 payment from Burger King to people's personal Venmo accounts. The surprise is BK's way of encouraging fans to try out the value menu—because what's better than only paying $1 for your favorite fast-food items? Getting them for free!
In order to get more bang for your buck and save some calories, too, order the Bacon Cheeseburger. Although this sandwich has 320 calories, 16 grams of fat, 710 milligrams of sodium (yowza!), it does contain 17 grams of protein. It's not the healthiest choice for lunch or dinner, sure, but then again, you won't find the healthiest choices at most fast-food chains.
