Burger King never would’ve expected their new promotional pork ribs would do as well as they have done. But now BK has sold their 10 millionth rib and people are looking for more. But according to MSN’s Money Central, they will probably run out by the end of this month. BK better start slaughtering their own pigs out back because there may be an uprising over it.
Remember what happened during the cheesy tots campaign. People sent in a lot of nasty notes. Some of the notes online looked like the people were addicted to some ingredient in the damn things. Now the ribs are a rather expensive item for a fast food restaurant costing more than $7 for a slab of approximately 8 bones. What this promotion/experiment is showing BK is even though we’re in a recession people will pay for what they like anyway.
The rib experiment is not the only high-end idea they’ve had. In select areas, they’ve been experimenting with brunches complete with mimosas and cibata breakfast sandwiches. Now, we’re on the look out for that one. By a show of hands, which one of you are sucking down ribs and in line for the last few they have left? Read here to keep up with BK and what they are offering next.
