The latter has spread across the country like wildfire, and even is available in other countries like the UK as well. But are the Beast burgers in the US similar to their foreign counterparts?

The popular Food Wars by Insider foods conducted an analysis of the different versions of Beast burgers that are available in the US and in the UK. Interestingly, there are quite a few changes between the MrBeast burgers from the two different places.

In both countries, the burgers come in two sizes; double and triple. But the triple-size burger in the US has around 20g more compared to the UK version. Additionally, the burgers from Jimmy’s brand interestingly have many different varieties that are named after his friends, who we have seen in the videos.

There are seasoned and unseasoned fries also available from the brand. Moreover, the Chris-style burger is loaded with fries in it. Interestingly, these fries in the Chris style burger are comparatively cheaper ($0.3 compared to $0.4) compared to buying a single portion of fries from the brand.

Another difference that is noted is in the ‘special exclusive’ that the US enjoys. The MrBeast Impossible burger is a special dish that is only available in the US. Though this is not because it’s a country exclusive, rather it is because of certain laws.

That is, in the US, the component soy leghemoglobin is classified as GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe). But the component does not have regulatory approval in the UK or the EU.

Flavors, varieties, and management

Comparatively, both regions have similar flavors and varieties of MrBeast Burger products, except for the aforementioned Impossible Burger. But, interestingly, when bought through delivery, the prices are drastically different in both countries.

That is, the Beast-style Double Burger combo in the US costs $15.29 when you go and buy it from the store. But, when you order it through delivery, the total adds up to $28.72, an increase of around 87% in price.

In the UK though the combo costs $18.58 when bought from the store, and when delivered it costs $24.20. This, according to Harry from Insider food, is because of the higher minimum wage in the country, which dramatically affects tipping.

The most interesting aspect that MrBeast Burgers follows is virtual kitchens. That is, the products are made in association with other restaurants, and the money made is segmented and distributed between the MrBeast franchise and the restaurant. This is also the reason why the burgers may taste a bit different from one another if bought from different places.

The gamble that Jimmy pulled off to introduce a food chain into the competing American market surely was fruitful. And within no time, the MrBeast burgers opened 300 locations in America within the first week. The giant McDonald’s took around 6 years to open 300 stores in the US, showing the rapid growth of the Beast Burger Brand.

Though these burgers surely have high calories count, they are still preferred by many. The brand is witnessing a rapid growth in both US and UK, and will surely expand to other regions as well if they are continuing this fabulous run.
