April Fools’ Day day always a sees a number of pranks from fast food and various foods brands that showed up on April 1, 2023 via social media. Here’s the 2023 April Fools’ Day joke round-up:

– Burger King Ireland – They put out two April Fools products: the High King (“We’re taking our menu to new heights, combining all our classic burgers like never before.”) and…
Whopper Warmer (“Want to take your Whopper on an adventure, and can’t get enough of our piping hot taste? Presenting the all-new Whopper Warmer – a revolutionary temperature controlled container that ensures your Whopper is always at the optimum heat, wherever, whenever.”)
