For several years in the 1980s, the weight of the Whopper was increased to 1/3 lb. The bun was also replaced by a Kaiser roll. The Whopper reverted to the original formulation a few years later. The "Third Pound Whopper" made a return in the early 2000s, but has since been discontinued again. The Kaiser Roll, also called Vienna roll, is a kind of bread roll, popular in the United States and Canada. ...


The packaging has undergone many changes since its inception. Originally the sandwich was sold in a clamshell style box made of styrofoam, which was changed to a paperboard box in the early 1980s. The box was fully eliminated in the late 1980s or early 1990 and was replaced with waxed paper. For a short time after BK began moving to a fresh made model (certain sandwiches are made only after being ordered instead of being pre-made ahead of time), BK used an aluminum foil wrapping similar to Wendy's sandwich packaging.
