It's called a "Whopperito."

Grubgrade describes the wrap as all the fixings that go into a typical Whopper with cheese, wrapped in a flour tortilla.

But some people are already turned off by the description and advertised picture of the burger-burrito.

A spokeswoman for Burger King told BuzzFeed News that the Whopperito is being sold by a franchisee on a "local level."

"Whopperito" is Burger King's mashup of the Whopper and a burrito and this is what it looks like

Customers have spotted the creation in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Texas, NBC News reported.

The company doesn't plan to sell the Whopperito nationally, the spokeswoman said.
