Burger King's onion rings are on their "value menu" for a buck. They'd be too expensive at half of that.
Right out of the fryer, they're tolerable I guess, but the second they start cooling down the quality starts dropping sharply. They have a slippery mouthfeel, they have an artificial salt/onion powder flavor, and the grease coats the inside of the mouth.
I can't figure out why they're so damn bad. They're made from real sliced onions as far as I can tell, and they've got a fairly standard crumb coating. And yet, they're far and away the worst thing on the menu.
What's worse, I already knew all of that when I ordered them, so I have no one but myself to blame for giving them a second chance.
