Burger King unveils summer menu items including two new gourmet burgers

Bacon Caesar Angus and Bacon Caesar Crispy Chicken join the summer menu  READ MORE: Full list of cafes and restaurants where kids can eat free or from £1

Burger King has revamped its menu once again for the summer, with the introduction of a new Gourmet Kings Bacon Caesar collection.

Though the name teases a typical leafy green salad, the fast food chain aim to shake things up for the better with a surprise twist on its classic Angus and Crispy Chicken burgers.

The Bacon Caesar Angus and Bacon Caesar Crispy Chicken are both topped with fresh rocket, crispy onions, an oak smoked cheddar slice, bacon and garlic Caesar mayo - all sandwiched between a toasted brioche bun.

Customers across the UK can also try the Bacon Caesar Loaded King Fries, topped with bacon pieces and the same Caesar mayo.

The new 'premium collection' is also available exclusively on Deliveroo until June 3, with the bonus of free Caesar loaded fries when customers spend £25 or over.

That is not where the new items end, with the brand also releasing a cool new drink to refresh Brits.

Burger King UK customers can now stay refreshed with a Blue Raspberry Frozen Fanta joining Lemon in the Frozen Fanta range.

The two new 'gourmet' burgers are available in participating UK restaurants from £8.19, while the Caesar Loaded Fries start at £4.79​.

Burger King's new drink will cost thirsty customers at least £3.49.

Until June 2, while it is still the school half term holiday, any parents looking to make savings at Burger King could still use the Kids Eat Free promotion if they try the new items.

The deal allows children to get a free King Jr. meal when they are accompanied by an adult buying a burger meal.

It comes after the American watchdog Consumer Reports tested 18 fast food meals from nine of America's favorite fast food restaurants, including McDonald's, Burger King and Taco Bell to find the highest levels of toxic, microscopic toxins.

Phthalates are a group of chemicals used to make plastics such as food containers, bags and disposable cutlery more durable.

They belong to a wider group of 'forever chemicals', which earned their name because they cannot be broken down once they are lodged in the body.

Exposure to heat and other conditions cause the chemicals to shed from plastic products and leach into anything the plastic comes into contact with — from clothes to foods.

In fourth place was Burger King's famous Whopper with Cheese burger — wrapped in paper — which contained 20,167ng of phthalates per burger, or serving.

It is not clear how much of these get broken down by the body or released naturally during the digestive process. But the CDC says that between 2 and 20 nanograms per milliliter of blood can cause people adverse health problems.

Consumer Reports said the phthalates may have got into fast food when it came into contact with packaging — which is normally plastic-coated.
