Sauna for a king


A Burger King in Finland has a sauna in it because of course it does.

All the American fastfood chains had to make some major changes to their recipes to be allowed into the Nordic countries. Burger King definitely isn't the worst offender. So be warned if you ever visit a Nordic country and craves fastfood: it's more healthy here but also more expensive because not only are the restaurants expected to use better ingredients but they also have to pay their employees proper wages.

"the restaurants expected to use better ingredients but they also have to pay their employees proper wages."

So, you're saying it's pretty much better in almost every way possible?

Let me rephrase that for you:

"A sauna in Finland has a Burger King in it because of course it does."

You're welcome.

Sweden didn't even need to look at Finland to know what he asked for.

I never noticed much difference between US and Norwegian Burger Kings, except for using slightly different batter on their onion rings (I could be wrong, but it sure LOOKED like most of the Norwegian ones actually had a few whole kernels of corn attached.) You're absolutely right that it's MUCH more expensive there than in the US, but what ISN'T (answer: Gasoline.) But the flip side is I earned a higher wage as an entry level temporary worker in Norway than most of the managers I've worked under in the US, and don't have to meet a four-figure deductible before my insurance actually starts working.

I know. Finland actually has a motherfucking Burger king restaurant with a sauna. It's in Helsinki. There is also a big TV in the sauna, so you can watch hockey. And after sauna, you can continue watching the game from an even bigger tv. Or play with PS4. If yoy pay extra, you can keep the Burger King towel/bathrobe.

Yeah, fast food's unhealthy, but it's not supposed to be eaten daily. (Something a lot of Americans don't seem to comprehend).
It's a guilty pleasure, and sometimes very, very convenient.

.....No, I'm not a BK employee.

I miss Whoppers. The onions were fantastic.

I don't miss saunas. I think I'd melt.
