Burger King today announced the nationwide rollout of its latest fast-food invention. It’s called the Whopperito, and it’s exactly what you think it is — a burger-burrito mashup that follows in the fantastical-sounding footsteps of many other contemporary food fusions, like the Cronut, the Ramen Burger and the Sushiritto, to name a few.
