In an attempt to be more "healthy", I forewent the fries for the onion rings. They tasted good, but after one I grew tired of the outer batter, and decided to peel it off and just eat the fried onions.
At first, I just thought the onion was disintegrating. As I dug through the layers of fried batter, the ring just seemed to pull apart. The crunchy outer ring was easy enough to remove, but after a layer, the batter turned stretchy and hollow. With nothing but more stretchy batter inside. THERE WAS NO ONION. I had forgotten my glasses at home and it's entirely possible that it was chopped up and included on some microscopic level, but according to my 50/40 vision (far-sighted), it appears that Burger King is now selling "onion simulated batter rings".
I paid $2.17 for well-constructed fried dough.
Just for kicks, I looked up the nutrition facts (see below). One medium order has 5 grams of sugar and 1080mg of sodium. Compared to a small order of fries (which is MORE food, by serving size gram, fyi), that's twice the sodium. Looking back, they didn't really taste that salty, which explains why those 5 grams of sugar are necessary. Extra salt, extra sugar, no real vegetable -- how is this an onion ring again?
