Burger King’s new “bunless” burger, dubbed the Extreme One Pound Beef Burger, is exactly what you’d expect – a meat galore. The colossal meat monstrosity comprises no burger buns, just 4 chargrilled beef patties. Between the meat “buns” are an assortment of fresh vegetables, slices of cheddar cheese, and ketchup to cut through the richness.

Netizens like @yumiya2018 were concerned that the patties might be too hot to hold on to, unlike how you’d grab a normal burger, and reminded everyone to be careful.

User @death_okan jokingly commented that they can “lose weight as long as they eat the burger, since it is low in carbohydrates.” The sentiment was echoed by user @shiru2_toshitsu, an influencer who offers practical dietary tips, who quipped that the burger is “definitely low-carb.”
