I tasted every dessert available at Burger King over the course of a few weeks.
Overall, I was least impressed with the Strawberry Shake, Vanilla Hand Spun Shake, and Vanilla Soft Serve since they were sort of plain.
The Chocolate Oreo Shake and Chocolate Sundae With M&M’s were both tasty and I enjoyed their crunchy toppings and chocolate flavors.
The Dutch Apple Pie, which cost $1.99, blew me away and tasted homemade.

What good is a burger if you can’t chase it with something sweet and delicious?
Burger King has staked its claim to the throne with its name, but the fast-food chain has more than beef and plant-based substitutes on its menu.
Focusing only on the treats, I tried every cookie, pie, and shake available at my local locations of the fast-food chain to see which was the best.
Here’s how the sweets stacked up.
Note: Prices and availability are based on my local New York City Burger King locations unless stated otherwise.
Strawberry Shake — $3.79
The Strawberry Shake wasn’t a waste of money, but it was far from my favorite dessert at Burger King.
In my opinion, the strawberry-flavored sauce tasted artificial and intensely sweet.
I think if the vanilla soft serve and syrup were more evenly blended, the flavors would have been smoother and I wouldn’t be so jarred by the hit of pure sugar to my teeth and taste buds.
That said, I think people who love strawberry candies might enjoy this shake.
Vanilla Hand Spun Shake — $3.79
For me, simple isn’t necessarily better.
It’s hard for vanilla soft serve blended with vanilla sauce to compete in a world of Oreo bits, caramel M&Ms, and apple pie.
The flavor of this shake was not overly sweet but it was also not particularly exciting.
If your favorite ice-cream flavor is vanilla, you will probably enjoy this — but it is far from being one of the best options on the menu, in my opinion.
Vanilla Soft Serve — $1.29
As the base for more than half of Burger King’s dessert menu, the vanilla soft serve deserves some respect.
It was cold, creamy, and sweet without being overbearing, but it was also pretty basic.
Just like with the soft serve I reviewed from McDonald’s, I think this cone would be perfectly refreshing in the summertime.
Chocolate Chip Cookies (Two) — $1.50
The cookies at Burger King were served warm, soft, and chewy. They were tasty but I think they leaned a little more to the bitter side of bittersweet.
In my opinion, they were also on the smaller side for the price.
Cini Minis (Four) — $ 1.49
The dough of the Cini Minis was quite chewy and, in my opinion, these could’ve used more time in the oven, especially since they weren’t golden or even a little crisp.
Basically tiny cinnamon rolls, these bites were served warm with cold dipping icing on the side.
The idea is A+ but the execution was subpar — especially since the icing was not served warm. …read more
