There's no need to mess with chicken sandwiches when you're busy perfecting the pretzel bun, right? At least, that's probably the thought of some Burger King executives after the fast-food chain officially introduced its Pretzel Bacon King to locations across the country. Available for a limited time, the sandwich is available one of two ways — Single or Double, meaning you get either one or two quarter-pound hamburger patties.

In addition to the classic flame-grilled burger, each sandwich is topped with a couple of slices of bacon, American cheese, and both mustard and mayonnaise, all sandwiched between a toasted pretzel bun. Earlier this month, news surfaced Burger King had sneakily introduced the sandwich to some United States-based stores after a successful test in Canada. It' unclear how long exactly the new sandwich will be available so you might want to grab it whenever you can; pricing starts at $6.49.

YouTuber TheReportOfTheWeek — perhaps more commonly known as #Reviewbrah — found the pretzel bun a bit too chewy for his liking in his review posted earlier this week. Another YouTuber, theendorsement, had a much more favorable review of the burger, saying the sandwich has a "perfectly made pretzel bun."

Social media buzz seemed generally positive in regards to the launch. @erickstevens82 says BK makes his favorite burger and the new pretzel bun only makes it better. @MJBurroughs liked the sandwich enough to post a portrait with a somewhat NSFW response.
