Americans apparently love bargain-priced chicken nuggets a little too dearly: Burger King is ending its 10-for-$1.49 chicken nugget promotion after just five weeks due to lack of supplies, Bloomberg reports. Time to start digging in those couch cushions and get to BK, because the chain "plans to revert to the old $2.99 price at the end of this week." In place of the super-cheap nugget deal, Burger King is now touting its new four-cheese Whopper, which looks vaguely like someone dragged a burger through the leftovers in their refrigerator's cheese drawer.
