Burger King has left foodies divided by releasing one entirely made of cheese.

In Thailand stores, the fast food chain has launched "The Real Cheeseburger", which comprises of a burger with no meat or condiments.

Instead it simply comprises of 20 slices of American cheese sandwiched inside a sesame seed bun.

It may not sound ideal to some, but Burger King insist the cheesy creation is a hit.

Writing on Facebook, the restaurant said: "This is no joke. This is for real.

"The real cheeseburger is full of flavour for those who love cheese."

It's up for grabs for just 109 Thai baht (£2.41), and dozens of people have been talking about it.

At one branch in Bangkok, CNN claimed a shift manager was overheard saying the product was so popular that the branch had to stop putting through orders as they feared they'd run out of supplies.

Even though the new menu addition has caused a bit of a frenzy online, many people who have sampled the item say they struggled to finish it.

Reporter Eric E Surbano reviewed The Real Cheeseburger for Lifestyle Asia, and wrote that two mouthfuls "were all I could endure before chucking it into the bin".

He continued: "It sucks … It is horrid. It isn’t really shocking that it’s bad. It’s literally burger bun, 20 slices of cheese, and burger bun. There’s no sauce.

"It was as revolting as you thought it would be: dry, a shock to the digestive system, and literally a thousand calories worth of unnecessary processed cheese.

"That’s another thing: for something called the ‘Real Cheeseburger’, there’s nothing real about any of the cheese here."

The writer even said the experience made him wonder "why Burger King thought of this aside from the viral aspect of it".

Thai travel guide and blogger, Richard Barrow, also claimed he "struggled eating even half of this ‘burger’."

"A trend in #Thailand is to put cheese on literally everything," he said.

"Now Burger King has joined in with the Real Cheese Burger. Though I think they forgot the meat."
