Burger King Launches A Halloumi Burger For Cheese Lovers
The launch follows a successful trial in Sweden, which led to fans pleading with the fast food giant to bring the cheesy burger to the UK.
The burger is served in a brioche bun with lettuce, onions, tomatoes and creamy mayo. Yum.
The burger can be bought on its own, or as part of a meal alongside Burger King's French fries and your favourite drink and, if you're feeling extra cheesy, you can double the halloumi patties.
The Halloumi Burger costs £3.99, with a meal costing £5.99. The double costs £5.49 and the double meal £7.49.
The fast food giant said in a statement: "Halloumi lovers across the UK rejoice and mark your calendars - the 8th of July will see Burger King launch the highly-anticipated Halloumi Burger nationwide.
"Made with crispy and delicious halloumi cheese from Cyprus, the Halloumi Burger will have lovers of this Cypriot delicacy filled with excitement."
The chain also pointed out that the UK absolutely loves halloumi as a nation: apparently we're the biggest importers of the cheese, meaning the burgers will no doubt be a hit with Britons.
"With the UK now earmarked as the biggest importer of Halloumi, chowing down on over 2,000 tonnes of the Cypriot delicacy per year, the demand for Halloumi has reached fever pitch and Burger King have listened," the statement went on.
"Bringing halloumi to the masses, Burger King are excited to be amongst the first quick service restaurant to offer halloumi burgers to the highstreets, stations and airports, all at an accessible price!
"Avoid the FOMO and take a trip down to your local Burger King:registered: UK restaurant and let Burger King provide you with the taste and sound of Summer 2019."
We just can't wait to try it...
