Buried in my more than 700 Culinary no-no installments is a segment (that I can’t seem to find) about fast food items that are advertised as food porn, until you get to the restaurant. Then “big” becomes puny, as if someone sat on your burger before it got placed in that Styrofoam box.

“Although the size of the Whopper increased materially in Burger King’s advertisements, the recipe or the amount of beef or ingredients contained in Burger King’s Whopper has never changed,” the lawsuit claims.

What do the plaintiffs want?

Damages, legal fees, a jury trial, and more accurate pictures of Burger King products.
