Quick Review: Burger King Orange Freeze

[New for 2014] It was day #2 without leftovers so that meant finding lunch again. I walked to Dunkin yesterday, and it's a gorgeous day again today so I should walk again, but I need to spice my lunch up today.

Small BK Orange Freeze 
and the Extra Long BBQ Cheeseburger

Yes, GrubGrade already warned us that the XL-BBQ-CB was just an overpriced version of his beloved Rodeo burger, but if I'm gonna nosh, it mine as well as be on something "new". And nosh I did. It wasn't mind blowing, but it enjoyable. It had the traditional fast food BBQ sauce, a bit of crunch from the onion rings, and then some cheese to tie it all together. Nothing I would probably crave in general, but I'm happy to have finally tried it.

The Orange Freeze? Well, after saying Orange Freeze several times.... and after being asked if I wanted the Cherry or Cola version [I want a freeze, not an ICEE!] ... and after a brief "please hold on for one second", I did manage to get a small Orange Freeze on my order. ($2.29)

Does it taste a bit like an orange creamsicle? No.... It tastes A LOT like an orange creamsicle! It's got that familiar taste but it's actually a bit more potent. Add that in to the fact that the texture is more like a real creamsicle as compared to say an Orange Coolatta, and we've got a fun summer treat.

Sidebar: Why they didn't call it orange creamsicle freeze? or orange cream freeze? I don't know.... but it's probably the same reason why DD call's it an Orange Coolatta and not an Orange Creamsicle Coolatta.

I have no problem recommending this drink. My only suggestion would be to treat it as more of a snack and get it with like a small fry. I enjoyed it, but I'm not really sure it went with my burger.

Verdict?  fun
Buy Again?  probably

I just read about this burger today and was curious so this is great timing.

The drink looks good but I bet you are right that it would go really well with fries.

Have you had the cola version? It's really good!

Ok, I tweaked the wording in the post. I have had the cherry and cola ICEEs before, but this is a freeze (similar, but not identical).

12 oz has 57 grams of sugar. That's more than a soda. Yuck.
