How much heat can you handle?
Burger King diners can now test their limits with the launch of the company's Angriest Whopper, which sandwiches the brand’s flame-broiled beef patty in a red-colored bun with baked-in spicy sauce.
The fast-food chain's newest burger is a sequel to its Angry Whopper, which "was a hit with guests," according to Burger King's Global Chief Marketing Officer Axel Schwan. Its success led the company to expand upon the spicy creation with the Angriest Whopper.

The day's top national and international news.
The burger contains flame-grilled beef, thick-cut bacon, American cheese, iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, crispy onion petals, jalapeños, creamy mayonnaise and "spicy angry sauce" between a fiery, red bun.
"This alarmingly delicious burger is sure to disprove the commonly held belief that a sequel is never as good as the original," the company said in a statement.
This isn't the first time that Burger King has released a burger with a colored bun. In the fall of 2015 the burger company sold the A.1. Halloween Whopper, which featured a black bun and was met with mixed reviews. Axel acknowledged that “The black bun of our A.1. Halloween Whopper created a lot of conversation“ after consumers took to Twitter to express their opinion.
Burger King's Angriest Whopper will be available for a limited time in participating restaurants at the suggested price of $5.49 or $7.49 as part of a combo meal.
