Burger King Japan releases world’s first Ice Whopper for a limited time

August 15, 2022
In what may be considered an eyebrow-raising move, Burger King Japan has announced a limited-time Whopper with ice shavings as part of a new summer meal.
The new Whopper, which has been dubbed the “Ice Whopper,” will be released as part of a limited-time special “Natsukoi Set” (“Summer Love Set“) on Aug. 19 and Aug. 20. Included in the set is an “ice bottle,” which is essentially a frozen bottle of Coca-Cola, according to PR Times via SoraNews24.

Based on the released marketing picture, the limited-time burger appears to be a regular Whopper with shaved ice spread on top of the burger’s beef patty between its onions and pickles – a possible take on kakigori, a popular Japanese treat that consists of sweetened and flavored ice shavings.
Since the Ice Whopper will only be available in limited quantities, Burger King Japan has set up an online reservation system for the Natsukoi Set, with each set priced at 1,000 yen (approximately $7.50).
The Natsukoi Set will eventually become available for purchase at the fast food chain’s two-day pop-up stall at Umi no Ie Oasis on Morito Kaigan Beach in Kanagawa Prefecture on Aug. 19 and Aug. 20.
