General links



Introduced as a direct challenge of corporate rival McDonald's, the Big King is Burger King's response to the Big Mac and had a similar style and taste. The sandwich was originally introduced in 1993 under the name Double Supreme during its testing stage. The name was switched to Big King when it was introduced nationally in 1997, and again to the King Supreme when reintroduced in 2002. The sandwich was discontinued in the North American market in the mid-2000s. In November 2013, Burger King brought the Big King back to the North American market as a permanent menu item. The Big King sandwich's recipe is exactly the same as the original 1990s recipe, including a three-piece roll. The Big King sandwich is also sold in many of the company's international markets in several forms.

Burger King[edit]

I think the wiki linked term "Burger King" needs to be used very early in the lede. Instead it gets an unlinked passing mention in the final sentence. I am not familiar with this product, so I'm not sure if there is a good reason why this is so. Atlas-maker (talk) 05:10, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

US Trademark Issues[edit]

The references to the Justia links in the Notes are all "broken". Not sure why they are there. I have included a link to the USPTO live TSDR reference for the cancelled registration of BIG KING. I have deleted the mention of the completely unrelated registration for "frozen confections". BK's registration was NOT "assigned" to anyone. The reason for cancellation of the US registration was administrative, i.e., failure to file Section 8 declaration of continued use. Lupinelawyer (talk) 18:26, 13 January 2016 (UTC)

Middle roll[edit]

The middle roll is missing in Germany too and probably in more European countries. That's kind of unfair. Is it because it would look too much like a Big Mac? --2001:16B8:2E8A:9400:D895:D82E:A3CF:C246 (talk) 19:41, 19 April 2018 (UTC)
