Burger King Japan swapping out French fries for crunchy ramen noodles
Some customers aren't too thrilled with what Burger King calls the "almost-potato set" meal, which includes a burger, a drink, and a side of crunchy ramen noodles.
One customer said he'd rather go to McDonald’s than settle for Burger King’s crunchy ramen.
Before deciding on offering crunchy ramen, Burger King considered boiled ramen, broiled squid, and apple pie as French fries substitutes.
Burger King operates over 150 restaurants in Japan.
Due to factors like supply chain disruptions and higher-than-expected demand, other fast food chains have recently had to deal with their own shortages. Most recently, Taco Bell announced an ingredient shortage for its Mexican Pizza after reintroducing the enormously well-liked item.
