Burger King Japan Unveils Giant “Crown the One-Pounder” Burger

Original Publish Date:

Burger King Japan has introduced a new massive burger aptly named the “Crown the One-Pounder.” Weighing in at approximately 1.1 pounds and packed with beef, cheese, and calories, this burger is not for the faint of heart.

Over 1 Pound of Beef and Cheese

The Crown the One-Pounder contains four flame-grilled 100% beef patties, totaling over 1 pound of meat. Sandwiched between the beef are six slices of cheddar cheese.

But that’s not all – the burger buns themselves are also stuffed with cheese. Burger King uses four different types of cheese in the buns:

  • Gouda – adds a tangy, zesty flavor
  • Egmont – gives a mild, creamy taste
  • Mozzarella – provides a slightly sweet note
  • Cheddar – more rich cheddar cheese

The cheese-infused buns are baked fresh in-store daily.

Packs a Whopping 1,399 Calories

With all that beef and cheese, the Crown the One-Pounder delivers a hefty calorie count. Each burger contains approximately 1,399 calories.

To help cut through the richness, Burger King adds crunchy pickles, fresh onions, ketchup, and mustard. But make no mistake – this is a decadent burger meant to satisfy big appetites.

Available for a Limited Time

The Crown the One-Pounder went on sale starting August 11, 2023 at Burger King locations across Japan. However, it will only be available for a limited time and in limited quantities.

This special burger comes with a price tag to match its size. On its own, the Crown the One-Pounder costs 2,040 yen (about $14 USD). As part of a meal with fries and a drink, it costs 2,340 yen (about $16 USD).

Burger King’s Special Request

To help tackle this enormous burger, Burger King recommends asking for a “half-cut” when ordering. This means staff will slice the burger in half, making it easier to handle and eat.

The half-cut also allows you to access the saucy center of the burger first, leading to a more flavorful experience from the start. Here’s how it looks cut in half, courtesy of gigazine.net.

Previous Monster Burgers

The Crown the One-Pounder is the latest in a series of extra-large burgers released by Burger King Japan. In recent years, they have introduced several four-patty “One Pounder” burgers.

While mega burgers make for a fun, novel experience, health experts warn these calorie bombs should only be an occasional indulgence, not a regular meal.

So if you’ve been craving an extra beefy, cheesy burger, head to Burger King Japan soon to try the limited-time Crown the One-Pounder! Just don’t make it an everyday habit.
