Free Breakfast on a Bun at Whataburger

When I go to Whataburger for breakfast I am going for one thing and one thing only. Death-biscuits. That is a little name my friends and I came up with to describe the Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit that Whataburger serves and, man, is it good/heart attack-inducing. Tomorrow morning I could be coaxed to go there for something else, though, since Whataburger's giving away free food.

At 700-plus locations, Whataburger is giving away a Breakfast on a Bun from 7 to 10 a.m. tomorrow as part of the "Whataburger Serves" customer appreciation day. A Breakfast on a Bun has egg, sausage or bacon and cheese on a toasted burger bun. You want free jalapeños and salsa too, you say? Well, you're in luck, because you have the option to get it "Ranchero Style" gratis, too.

Breakfast on a Bun sounds slightly healthier than the Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit, as it isn't fried chicken with sweet yellow ooze on top. Maybe I'll start getting that fulltime and leave the name Death Biscuit to a band.
