Last night, something caught my attention as I was doing my usual round of Facebook news feed-scrolling before bedtime. Apparently, Jollibee was to launch its newest burger offering today, which comes in a special edition Thor packaging in line with the upcoming movie, Thor 2: The Dark World, premiering on October 30, 2013.
I'm no crazy Thor fan, but I just can't let this pass. So earlier today, I went to a Jollibee branch and ordered their newest burger, the Cheesy Bacon Mushroom Champ (Solo P129; Value Meal P165) which came in an electric blue box featuring who else but Thor.
I don't usually think of burgers when I buy food from Jollibee as it's their ChickenJoy I always come back for. However, since I love cheese, bacon and mushrooms, this burger was really right up my alley! Actually, I remember Jollibee offering something similar quite a while ago, the same time they first introduced the Aloha burger. It was my favorite burger from Jollibee, but for some reason, it was dropped from the menu.
I'm glad that it's now back and have become even better. Unlike its predecessor, the Cheesy Bacon Mushroom Champ uses 1/3 pound patty, the same used in the Champ burger. It's also loaded with generous amount of cheese sauce, bacon and mushrooms. Mind you, this isn't a product sample but the "regular" serving I bought earlier. I'm impressed of its quality, and I'm hoping they won't skimp on the ingredients later on.
Now, aside from the burger itself (which was pretty good), the "real" reason I bought the burger, was for this Thor merchandise available for only P95 when you buy the Cheesy Bacon Mushroom Champ either solo or as value meal from Oct. 16 to Nov 16, 2013.
And no, it's not just a toy. This is actually a Mjolnir - Thor's Hammer 1GB USB (P95) made from a rubber material. Haha! Yes, I made sure to buy the burger today so I won't have to concern myself with stock availability, as I'm sure this will be sold out soon.
I've tested out this USB and it does work! However, my boyf's friend who also bought one, got a defective, non-working USB. I think if you do get something defective, it can still be returned and replaced. Keep the receipt just to be sure though.
Anyhow, the Cheesy Bacon Mushroom Champ is a nice addition to Jollibee's selection of burgers. However, I'm wishing this would be a mainstay and not just a burger item that'd suddenly disappear from Jollibee's menu.
How about you, have you tried this new burger from Jollibee?
Already have your own Mjolnir? *wink*
