Social Media Say Burger King's Whopperrito Is a Flopperrito

Social media says Burger King's latest fast-food mashup known as the Whopperrito is a letdown, which may cause optimistic investors a bout of indigestion later on.

Since launching nationwide on Aug. 15, people have taken to Instagram (posts below) to voice their displeasure about the $2.99 limited-time offering, which takes the ground beef, lettuce, tomatoes and pickles from the chain's signature Whopper burger and wraps it in a flour tortilla. The complaints have ranged from the taste of the Whopperrito not living up to the hype, to it being an inferior burrito relative to those from Yum! Brands' (YUM) Taco bell chain, to their not being enough beef wrapped inside the extra large tortilla.
