I always found it odd that the signiture sandwich at Burger King is called a Whopper. I mean I get it, Whopper equals big and so forth, but the name of your fast food chain is Burger King. You would have thought they would have started making sandwiches called King long before they did.

But the important thing for us is that they eventually did. There is the Bacon King and of course their popular and heavily hyped Ch’King, which has proven to be a huge hit for the chain. And now they have revealed that a pair of new sandwiches will be joining the King lineup by the end of the month.

According to the folks over at Chewboom, who are used to having it their way, Burger King will be introducing a new Garlic and Bacon King and, in a first for the chain, a brand new Breakfast Bacon King.

Which means you suddenly have a ton of more options if you go through the drive-thru and say “King me!” to the person on the other end of the headset. Sure, they may not laugh but it’s probably worth a try.

Burger King decides to give guests a king-size their breakfast option.

The new Garlic and Bacon King includes a pair of flame grilled beef patties topped with bacon and garlic pieces (hence the name of the sandwich), American cheese and mayo all in between a sesame seed bun.

Meanwhile the new Breakfast Bacon King includes a folded egg, a sausage patty and two slices of bacon as well as American cheese and maple butter sauce all on a brioche bun. And no, I would doubt we’ll ever see a vegan version of the Breakfast Bacon King because that would just be wrong.

Both new sandwiches will be available at all participating Burger King locations starting July 29. But as you probably know by now, they will only be on menus for a limited time so get your king on while you can.
