Burger King is one of my absolute favourites when it comes to fast food, so I was delighted when the team sent me some of their newest creations to try. I tucked into the Californian BBQ King (Single), Doritos Chilli Heatwave Chicken Fries and classic Burger King Fries.
Burger King UK has officially confirmed the launch of their brand-new Californian BBQ King Range available nationwide.
The range includes two American-inspired BBQ burgers, The Californian BBQ King and the Californian BBQ Royale.
I was lucky enough to try the Californian BBQ King (Single), which boasts a juicy flame-grilled Whopper burger, American cheese, crunchy white onions, fresh tomato, lettuce and golden crispy onions.
To top it off, there’s a generous swirl of sweet BBQ sauce on the bun and on top of the garnish.

Burger King generously sent me a portion of Doritos Chilli Heatwave Chicken Fries too.
Originally an April Fool, these took the UK by storm and have since been launched properly by the fast food chain.
Overall I was very impressed by my latest Burger King experience; the Californian BBQ King (Single) was of exceptional quality.
I’m not the biggest fan of cheese so I mostly ate around it but a friend confirmed to me that it tasted delicious.
The smattering of golden crispy onions was a nice touch, although I personally feel it could have been a more generous helping.
The sweet and zesty BBQ sauce pulled it all together really well and was a great alternative to tomato ketchup which is what I’d usually go for.
But what really delighted me were the Doritos Chilli Heatwave Chicken Fries – I’d never tasted anything like them.
The nine chicken pieces made with 100% juicy chicken breast, coated in a crispy layer of crushed Doritos tortilla chips and a dusting of Doritos Chilli Heatwave flavour.

These were super tasty and totally moreish – I definitely could have eaten more than nine pieces.
They had just the right amount of kick too them – not too mild, not too spicy – and I imagine these will be a firm favourite with children and adults alike.
The restaurant also treated me to a portion of Fries, a Burger King classic which never fail to impress.
Those who want to get their hands on these new menu items can visit participating stores nationwide.
