While I was waiting for my takeout order at a local Burger King restaurant tonight, I was standing, per usual, next to the display case filled with the current BK Kids Meal toy selections. While standing there, I read the overhead children’s menu, which offers several different types of meals. Each of the BK Kids Meals comes with a toy, a beverage and a small order of French fries.
Among the choices that are available on the Burger King children’s menu are burgers, macaroni and cheese and chicken tenders. Of course, the toys that come with the meals are worth the price of the meal, to some people. The toy selections change frequently and are often linked to promotions for various movies and television programs. I have actually ordered BK Kids Meals in the past, in order to acquire some of the toys, to add to my collection of miniatures. I still have the various types of BK Kids Meals’ “Simpson’s” toys that I got several years ago, including the talking Bart Simpson wristwatch.
Presented here, is an article which examines and offers pertinent information regarding the Burger King children’s menu and BK Kids Meals.
The size of the various BK Kids Meals is pretty much just the right size for most young children. Each meal comes with a main item, small order of French fries and a beverage, which is usually a choice of small soda, juice or milk. Often, the much younger set won’t even eat the entire children’s meal, but they’ll most likely enjoy playing with the toy that came with their BK Kids Meal.
The Burger King children’s menu offers several tasty choices for young appetites. A Hamburger Meal is offered, as is a Cheeseburger meal. The Macaroni and Cheese BK Kids Meal is actually Kraft Macaroni and Cheese, which is a favorite food of kids everywhere. For burger lovin’ kids with bigger appetites, the Double Cheeseburger Meal certainly fits the bill. Two sizes of chicken tenders are also offered as BK Kids Meals. The chicken tenders come in four piece and six piece servings.
The price of each of the items on the Burger King children’s menu varies. While reading the children’s menu at a Hartford, Connecticut Burger King restaurant tonight, I wrote down the prices charged for each of the BK Kids Meals. They are as follows..
Mac & Cheese Meal..approximately $3.59
Hamburger Meal..approximately $2.99
Cheeseburger Meal..approximately $3.19
Double Cheeseburger Meal..approximately $3.99
Chicken Tenders (four piece)..approximately $3.49
Chicken Tenders (six piece)..approximately $4.59
The various types of BK Kids Meals are usually packaged in standard Burger King wrappers and bags. If a special promotion is being observed, the children’s menu items may be specially packaged.
BK Kids Meals are normally available at Burger King restaurants across the United States. Because Burger King restaurants occasionally offer different items in different regions of America, the items on the chldren’s menu at your local Burger King restaurant may differ from the items listed here.
The many different types of toys that have been and are included as part of BK Kids Meals are usually tied – in with a current or upcoming movie or television show. The toys are almost always high in quality and unique in appearance. These toys are also collected by many adults, myself included.
All things considered, the children’s menu at Burger King restaurants offers several tasty choices for hungry kids. The inclusion of French fries and a beverage with these meals makes ordering easy and the inclusion of a toy sweetens the deal. Personally, I think that some of the prices are a bit high, but the toy being included makes the prices seem more reasonable.
