Burger King brings poutine to Brazil

14 Oct

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been working on a story related to poutine – that famous French Canadian creation that involves smothering fries with gravy and cheese curds.

Much to my surprise, I came across a similar Brazilian creation, at Burger King no less. The Trio Supremo, pictured below, features chicken nuggets and onion rings with a main serving of fries drenched in cheese and bacon. According to the handy-dandy Google translation of the main page, all BK restaurants in Brazil are serving this lovely concoction as of June.

Ironically, while researching my story I found that Burger King is the biggest seller of poutine in Canada, according to the NPD Group consumer tracking firm. So has the Brazilian operation just adopted the hottest thing in Canadian food since the Nanaimo bar? Who knows, but looking at the picture is sure making me hungry.
