They’re calling it “Chip Butty” and it doesn’t seem half as appetizing as our beloved sandwich batata.

The new item is called the Chip Butty. Inspired by a similar sandwich popular in the UK and Australia, the Chip Butty is made up of burger buns filled with fries, mayonnaise, and ketchup.
Does it ring any bells? Well, it should because it’s basically a spin-off from our popular sandwich batata.
The simple yet delicious potato wrap is famous in several Arab countries in the Levant and Egypt. It is usually enveloped in pita bread packed with fries, coleslaw, ketchup, and, of course, extra toum (garlic paste).
Arabs were all there for the new Burger King item but so were Brits and Australians who are known for their own version of the Chip Butty.
In both countries, the sandwich is made with buttered white bread that’s filled with french fries and condiments including ketchup, mayonnaise, or malt vinegar. Brits have already rejected BK’s Chip Butty and can’t even with it.
We accept that fries-filled sandwiches might be popular outside the Arab world but let’s just say none of them can compare to ours. Therefore, it was only natural for Arab tweeps to vent their frustration over the fact that no Chip Butty will ever live up to our favorite batata wrap.
