Burger King’s iconic Whopper Sandwich is a staple of the popular fast-food chain. Over the years, Burger King has expanded its menu to include various versions of the original classic Whopper.

The Whopper consists of a ¼ pound beef patty, tomatoes, lettuce, mayonnaise, ketchup, pickles, and white onions served on a sesame seed bun. Ordered as is, a Whopper sandwich has 657 calories. You can expect the price of a Whopper sandwich to range from $4.99- $8, depending on your location and additional toppings.

There are so many ways to enjoy a Whopper from Burger King! In this article, we’re exploring all the Whopper menu items at Burger King, including prices, calories, and ingredients.

What Are the Ingredients in a Whopper?

The original, classic Whopper sandwich ingredients are a quarter-pound all-beef patty, tomatoes, lettuce, mayonnaise, ketchup, pickles, white onions, and a sesame seed bun. A Whopper sandwich contains the common allergens of wheat, egg, and soy.

On today’s Burger King menus, you can order a few different Whopper sandwiches in addition to the original Whopper. Available Whopper menu items include:

  • Whopper with Cheese
  • Bacon & Cheese Whopper
  • Double Whopper
  • Double Whopper with Cheese
  • Triple Whopper
  • Triple Whopper with cheese
  • Whopper Jr.

A Whopper with Cheese consists of the same ingredients as the classic Whopper, a sesame seed bun, one ¼ pound beef patty, tomatoes, pickles, onions, mayonnaise, and ketchup, with the addition of one slice of melted American cheese.

Another popular add-on option to the classic Whopper sandwich is the bacon and cheese addition.

Ordering a Bacon and Cheese Whopper will get you crispy bacon, melted American cheese, tomatoes, onions, pickles, lettuce, ketchup, and mayonnaise piled on top of a quarter-pound beef patty and served on a sesame seed bun.

The Double Whopper adds an extra flame-grilled all-beef patty for a total of two ¼ pound patties topped with lettuce, tomatoes, onions, pickles, ketchup, and mayonnaise.

Your Double Whopper is served on Burger King’s signature sesame seed bun. Select the cheese add-on, and you’ll enjoy a Double Whopper with Cheese.

For those who are looking to fill a big appetite, Burger King offers the Triple Whopper.

As you might guess, the Triple Whopper includes all the classic Whopper toppings, lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, mayonnaise, and ketchup served on three ¼ pound beef patties on a sesame seed bun.

And if you’re looking to add a slice of American cheese, you can order the Triple Whopper with Cheese.

Rounding out the Whopper menu at Burger King is their smaller and cheaper Whopper Jr.

When you order a Whopper Jr., you still get all the fixings of a Whopper; tomato, lettuce, onions, pickles, ketchup, mayonnaise, and sesame seed bun, but the burger patty is roughly 2.2 ounces, half the size of the original Whopper.

What Is the Whopper Sauce Made Of?

The only sauces included on the Whopper are ketchup and creamy mayonnaise. In the past, Burger King has released limited-edition Whoppers like the Angry Whopper that came with its own Angry Whopper Sauce. There are six sauces on Burger King’s menu, BBQ, Zesty, Ranch, Buffalo, Honey Mustard, and Sweet and Sour.

While many people remember the classic Whopper being served with its own signature sauce, when you order one of BK’s popular sandwiches, it will only be served with ketchup and mayonnaise.

In September 2021, Burger King released a statement announcing that it was banning 120 artificial ingredients from its menus.

However, whether or not this led to a change in the Whopper toppings has not been confirmed by Burger King directly.

The Burger King sauces include:

  • Honey Mustard

Does Burger King Have a Veggie Whopper?

The Impossible Whopper is Burger King’s meat-free Whopper option. Designed by Impossible Foods, this soy-based burger is available with all the toppings of the classic Whopper, served on a sesame seed bun. For a completely meat-free Impossible Whopper, Burger King offers a non-broiled preparation method upon request.

Burger King launched the Impossible Whopper in August 2019. It features the Impossible Burger made from Impossible Foods.

This meatless burger is topped with lettuce, tomatoes, onions, pickles, mayonnaise, and ketchup piled on a sesame seed bun.

If you are ordering an Impossible Whopper and want a truly meat-free burger, you must request it be prepared separately and not on their grills.

Burger King states that “Burger King Corporation makes no claim that the Impossible Whopper meets the requirements of a vegan or vegetarian diet. The Impossible patty is cooked on the same grill as meat patties.”

What’s the Difference Between a Whopper and Whopper Jr.?

The main difference between a Whopper and Whopper Jr. is that a classic Whopper comes with a ¼ pound beef patty and the Whopper Jr. comes with a smaller beef patty, about half the size. As a result, the Whopper Jr. is half the calories and less than half the price of a Whopper.  

The Whopper Jr. is packed with all the flavors you expect from a Whopper, including flamed-grilled beef, lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, ketchup, and mayonnaise, together on a sesame seed bun.

The only differences are the size of the beef patty, the calorie count, and the price. The Whopper Jr. is the perfect way to enjoy Burger King’s signature burger for anyone with smaller appetites, calorie restrictions, or looking for the most value for their dollar.


Burger King wants you to have it your way! And with the Whopper Sandwich and all its iterations, you can enjoy their iconic burger any way you like. With Double and Triple Whoppers and even the meatless Impossible Whopper, you can find the Whopper you crave at your local Burger King.
