Hey ladies: Burger King Japan has Spam burgers, just for you
Time -- Jun 16
Burger King thinks it knows women. Under the slogan "what women want, what women get," it will introduce the mini Spam burgers on June 20. Yes, Spam-the four-letter word does not refer to junk mail in this case, but canned pork jelly. Joked to be "mystery meat" by some, the pinkish hunk of pork meat is considered to be comfort food by others.
Women in the U.S. and Singapore have already tasted the beef and chicken version of the sliders called BK Shots, a name that stirred up a lot of controversy. This month, Burger King targets Japan with BK Bites, renamed and with a new ingredient. But at 174 calories and 15g of fat in a mere 2 oz of Spam, it's unclear how many weight-conscious women would go for them.
