Burger King Gives its Burger the Stuffed Crust Pizza Treatment

With the debut of its BK Stuffed Steakhouse Burger, Burger King hopes to achieve what Domino's et. al. accomplished with stuffed crust pizza: Shove cheap extra calories into its core product to make it exponentially more fattening and, hence, more appealing.
The Stuffed Steakhouse Burger is filled with bits of jalapeño and cheddar cheese then topped with a creamy poblano sauce. Priced at $3.99, it will be available nationwide through mid-February.
Minneapolis' CityPages calls the burger a Jucy Lucy knockoff, but as dyed-in-the-wool Californians, we have no idea what a "Jucy Lucy" is except that it A) exists in Minnesota and B) sounds like something that should be advertised on CraigsList's now defunct Adult Services section.
