One does not inform others of the deliciousness of the whopper. By the time you are in your 20s it is assumed that you have experienced the whopper, the big mac, the wendy's square and the slider.

The only explanation for this thread is that you were just released from a forty year prison sentence.  How else could this possibly be true?  Are you not, sir, an American?  With all rights and obligations of that role?

Wait....you've never had a Whopper?  How old are you?  Hell, I haven't had a Whopper in probably 10 years, but I still find it hard to believe you could be in your teens/twenties/or even worse beyond that and not have had a Whopper.

Ack.  Burger King is the most god-awful fast food joint on the planet, and the Whopper is truly their most vile creation.

I'm 33 and have never had a Whopper. Two reasons: mayonnaise and tomato. I don't eat either. Never have, never will. Why any food establishment would consider mayonnaise a default condiment boggles my mind. And yes, I know I could "have it my way" but without the tomato and mayo I might as well just order a regular cheeseburger at half the price.

Tomatoes are slimy.  I won't go near them.  Mayo is great as long as I don't think about it too much.

Homemade Mayonnaise Recipe

From The New Doubleday Cookbook by Jean Anderson & Elaine Hanna (Doubleday)
You'll be amazed at the bright flavor of homemade mayonnaise. It's really very simple and fast to make with a blender or processor. Variations are given for flavored mayonnaises as well.
INGREDIENTS:

    * 2 egg yolks
    * 3/4 teaspoon salt
    * 1/2 teaspoon powdered mustard
    * 1/8 teaspoon sugar
    * Pinch cayenne pepper
    * 4 to 5 teaspoons lemon juice or white vinegar
    * 1-1/2 cups olive or other salad oil
    * 4 teaspoons hot water

PREPARATION:
Beat yolks, salt, mustard, sugar, pepper, and 1 teaspoon lemon juice in a small bowl until very thick and pale yellow. (Note: If using electric mixer, beat at medium speed.) Add about 1/4 cup oil, drop by drop, beating vigorously all the while. Beat in 1 teaspoon each lemon juice and hot water. Add another 1/4 cup oil, a few drops at a time, beating vigorously all the while. Beat in another teaspoon each lemon juice and water. Add 1/2 cup oil in a very fine steady stream, beating constantly, then mix in remaining lemon juice and water; slowly beat in remaining oil. If you like, thin mayonnaise with a little additional hot water. Cover and refrigerate until needed. Do not keep longer than 1 week.

Yield: 1-1/2 cups

Blender or Processor Mayonnaise Place yolks, salt, mustard, sugar, pepper, and 3 teaspoons lemon juice in blender cup or work bowl of a food processor fitted with the metal chopping blade, and buzz 15 seconds (use low blender speed). Now, with motor running, slowly drizzle in 1/4 cup oil (use moderately high blender speed). As mixture begins to thicken, continue adding oil in a fine steady stream, alternating with hot water and remaining lemon juice. Stop motor and scrape mixture down from sides of blender cup or work bowl as needed.

Variations
Remoulade Dressing: Prepare mayonnaise as directed, then mix in 1 tablespoon each minced capers and gherkins, 2 teaspoons each anchovy paste and Dijon mustard, and 1 teaspoon each minced parsley and fresh chervil. Serve with seafood or use to dress cold vegetable salads or sliced tomatoes.

Sauce Nicoise: Prepare mayonnaise as directed and set aside. Mix 2 tablespoons tomato puree with 2 minced pimientos and 1/2 crushed clove garlic; press through a fine sieve and blend into mayonnaise.

Russian Mayonnaise: Prepare mayonnaise, then mix in 1/4 cup black or red caviar, 1/2 cup sour cream, and 1 tablespoon minced fresh dill.

Mustard Mayonnaise: Prepare mayonnaise, then mix in 4 teaspoons Dijon mustard.

Curry Mayonnaise: Prepare mayonnaise, then blend in 1 to 2 teaspoons curry powder.

Chantilly Mayonnaise: Prepare mayonnaise, then fold in 1/2 cup heavy cream, beaten to soft peaks.

Fruit Mayonnaise: Prepare mayonnaise, then beat in 3 tablespoons each orange juice and superfine sugar, 1 teaspoon finely grated orange rind, and a pinch nutmeg. For added zip, mix in 1 tablespoon Grand Marnier or other fruit liqueur. Serve with fruit salads.

Thin Mayonnaise: Prepare mayonnaise, then thin to desired consistency by beating in hot water, a tablespoon at a time.

I've gotta say, the "fruit mayonnaise" with the liquor in it sounds pretty good.  I mean - it might not taste good, but I'm all for adding liquor to condiments!

So you've never had tomato sauce or tomato soup or tomato juice before?  So no pizza or spaghetti?  Because honestly, I doubt it.

Maybe you haven't had a raw tomato before, but I can't imagine what you're excuse is if you've had plenty of other tomato based foods.  Please do tell.

I've grown to tolerate tomatoes, but I used to not be able to stand the raw flavor.  Tomato sauces were always just fine, but if it was raw on a burger or sandwich I just couldn't eat it.

I’ve never eaten a hamburger from a fast-food restaurant and I’m 22.  It just seems like a waste when it’s something I couple make myself for cheaper.  Besides, I only like hamburger when it’s been burnt past the point of being recognized as meat anyways, so I doubt I would like it.

I can understand the logic there of making one yourself, however, I am amazed your parents never took you to a fast food restaurant...or did they and you just never tried a hamburger?

I was in my late twenties before I ever had White Castle, but that is because there are none around me.

About ten years ago, fast food was my lunch everyday at work.  I lived for the hour I could leave the building and go to Burger King, McDonald's, Arby's, Wendy's or some local chain selling greasy food.  Things have changed and it's now a 3-4 times a month thing now, instead of 5-6 times a week.

As for tomatoes, I never liked them and would always pick them off anything, even if they were diced and buried in a burrito.  Then I got so I could tolerate a minimal amount in Mexican food.  Then about a month or so ago, I got a bacon cheeseburger at a restaurant and for some unknown reason decided to keep the tomato on.  It wasn't too bad and added to the flavor of the sandwich.  Since then I've kept them on, whenever the sandwich comes with tomato, but I don't go out of my way to get tomatoes.


I will say, I still don't know why anyone would want to put pickle anywhere near a burger, though.  The worst is when the pickle spear comes on the side and they throw the fries on top and half of the fries taste like pickle juice.  Yuck!

My favourite fast food joints are Wendy's and A&W. Used to not care so much about A&W when I was young, but I've grown to be really fond of them. I think they've only gotten better, and you can't complain that they water down their pop either, as they don't put tons of ice in it like most places do.

The slider is hard to have unless you live near a White Castle. Yes, I know they're in the freezer section.  But THAT IS NOT THE SAME.

That being said?  I prefer Jack in the Box for burgers, Wendy' for fries.

Those new Extreme Dill Pickle Pringles taste exactly like this.

As far as Whoppers, they're a rare treat for me.....quite a few BK's in the area have disappeared and it's a drive to the nearest one now.

To clarify - I don't eat raw tomato. Of course I eat tomato sauce on pizza, spaghetti, etc. But raw tomato - forget it. And it's not that I've never tried it. My wife loves to make these tomato appetizers for parties that consist of sliced raw tomato with cheese and salad dressing on them, and I've tried several time to enjoy them for her sake. But...ughhhh.

Mayonnaise I'm even less tolerant of. Just the sheer sight of it makes me gag. I'm generally opposed to any sort of white sauces, which is why I don't eat ranch dressing and can barely tolerate alfredo sauce.

Does it all come out of the microwave now?  I don't eat much fast food anymore, but one of the big selling points of BK over McD used to be that the BK burger patties went through a pizza oven-esque conveyer belt "flame broiler" rather than coming out of a steam tray like McD.

My favorite fast food chain burger is the short lived "Big King" burger.  It was made just like a Big Mac, but with bigger patties and buns.  It was all the best parts of the Big Mac--but better.

On a recent visit to the West Coast (from Canada no less), I had the pleasure of trying an In-n-Out burger. It was heaven (I think I went for the double). I'm not a big fan of the fries though, but I've had worse.
