In honor of the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show and visible collar bones, we bring you the arch nemesis of skinny bitches everywhere: grease.
Picture this: slices of savory black forest ham, topped with American cheese, crisp lettuce, and creamy mayo, all served heated on a toasted hoagie bun. Burger King recently re-opened its sandwich vault from the 70s to unearth a diamond in a sea of lard, the Yumbo. And since we consider ourselves Burger Queens, it was only natural for us to open our mouths in celebration.
BELOW IS ACTUAL YUMBO FOOTAGE FROM 1974. THINK OF HUNGRY JACK'S AS THE KING'S AUSSY COUSIN... both absolutely scrumbo.
We took a step back in time (and our closets) to venture to the glistening, golden buns of 2840 W. North Ave to try the Yumbo for ourselves. Hearing our number, we flittered over to the counter grabbing our tray of Yumbos, pleasantly surprised by its absurd amount of cheese, slightly soggy bun, and generous use of signature shredded lettuce.
Armed with three duffle bags of camera equipment and $16.76 worth of food, our ever-chic photographer Christina went to work on a full-fledged Ketchup Couture Moment as the BK crew and two homeless men looked on. Luckily for us, the original 1970s decor, which was present at the time of the inagural Yumbo, only enhanced our overall looq.
We ordered crinkle fries without knowing that those were the low fat option (#blessed). But, they're still fries and we still ate them. Geneetra graced our table adding the finishing touch of chic-ness.
BK, you sparked our past with ham and the memories of our love/hate relationship with the perfectly pink meat, while also cementing the fact that we are horrible at making life choices. 'Til next time, Burger King.
