The Whopper was created in 1957 by Burger King co-founder James McLamore.

Flavia Faugeres, BK's executive vice president, said:

'Burger King is very excited to celebrate this amazing milestone with the Whopper sandwich lovers who have helped make it an American icon. For 55 years it’s been a fan favorite, and this weekend we encourage our guests to stop by and join in on the celebration."

Both limited edition Whoppers retail for $4.49, but then the Original Whopper will cost you just 55 cents.

The offer is available any time from Dec. 6 to 9.
