Burger King will unveil plans to sell beer and
burgers at a Whopper Bar — a new BK
concept to compete with casual dining
restaurants — in Miami Beach's tourist-heavy
South Beach. The South Beach Whopper Bar
is scheduled to open in mid-February.
A brew at the new Whopper Bar — served in
special aluminum bottles to keep them extra
cold — fetches $4.25. Or, order beer as part
of a Whopper combo and your bill will be
$7.99 — roughly $2 more than the same
combo meal with a fountain drink.
Sorry, Miller - I'ts the Same Old Cap
Miller Lite's "Taste Protector" caps and lids
are features in their ad campaigns but they
have beer forced to acknowledge that the
tops don't use new technology. As such, the
National Advertising Division Council of BBB
is demanding the ads be pulled.
MillerCoors has been saying the new golden
tops and lids on Miller Lite, which has been in
a sales slump, have a special seal that "locks
out air and locks in that Great Pilsner Taste."
In reality it's the same old can with the same
old top. Shocking, shocking that an
advertisement isn't telling the truth..
