Burger King Crispy Taco

Burger King now has a Crispy Taco on its national menu. It clocks in at 170 calories and 9 grams of fat, making it one of the lightest items on the chain’s entire product lineup. However, that doesn’t make it automatically healthy.

The Crispy Taco at Burger King contains 3 grams of saturated fat, which is nearly one-fourth of the RDA. For comparison’s sake, the Pulled Pork King has 6 grams of saturated fat, but that’s an entire sandwich complete with Spicy BBQ sauce and crispy onions.

I would think the better comparison would be against Jack In The Box’s crunchy taco, which is remarkably similar to Burger King’s new Mexican-inspired concoction. Not just in taste, but also nutrition-wise.

Again, for comparison’s sake, Jack In The Box’s Crunchy Taco has 362 mg of sodium and 16 grams of carbs, while the Crispy Taco at BK has 360 mg of and 19 grams of carbohydrates. The similarities are all too striking, so in the end your choice may come down to price.
