“Hello, I’m having a Whopper, can you suggest something to pair with it?” This is the kind of question Burger King has taken a proactive position on, with pairing suggestions listed on the soft drink dispenser.
I think this is a great idea, and while the pairings are based on things other than taste, it gives customers a different way of looking at the way they choose the beverages that accompany their meal.
If you’re having a Whopper, Burger King suggests Coke with your meal, as both are flagships in their field. Diet Coke is paired with the healthier fare on the menu, and Sprite and Dr. Pepper are paired with more eclectic items on the menu.
Give it a try and see what you think for yourself!
