Burger King just got it right with their Whopper. And it’s all due to their perfect blend of ingredients. But what is the sauce used in this burger? Here is what you need to know.
So, what sauce is on a Whopper? A Whopper has two different sauces; mayonnaise and ketchup. This combination gives this burger its sweet and creamy taste and texture.
So it really is nothing extra special.
At least in theory.
Besides, Fry sauce as it is known is a pretty simple sauce to make and one that you likely have done at home yourself before.
Nevertheless, added to the patty, tomato, pickles, and onions; you really have a lot of flavor in a Whopper.
And that likely elevates the ‘fry sauce’ further.
