GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - People in Wisconsin love cheese. OK, we get it.
But on Sunday, Nov. 25, Burger King restaurants are taking that love to new heights with a limited edition "Green Bay Whopper" sandwich.
The hamburger has a whopping eight slices of cheese stacked between the quarter-pound patty and the regular veggies.
"Knowing that Green Bay fans are known as the 'Cheeseheads' and frequently show up to games with gigantic nacho cheese hats, local Burger King restaurants in Wisconsin decided to pay homage to these fans with a special edition Whopper," a statement on behalf of the restaurant chain reads.
The Green Bay Whopper will be sold at six Green Bay-area restaurants for $4.49 -- the same price as a regular Whopper.
It's available for one week only, until Sunday, Dec. 2.
- 2430 S. Oneida St., Ashwaubenon
- 1005 S. Memorial Dr., Green Bay
- 2219 Main St., Green Bay
- 2582 Monroe Rd., De Pere
- 1007 Main Ave.
- 711 Memorial Dr., Howard
The Ashwaubenon location is about a mile down the street from Lambeau Field.
According to Burger King's website, a regular Whopper without cheese is 660 calories with 40 grams of fat. The USDA reports a generic 1-ounce slice of cheese contains 104 calories and almost 9 grams of fat. You decide if you want to do the math.
