Burger King is celebrating the 55th anniversary of its The Whopper sandwich with special limited-time menu offerings and retro packaging.

Burger King introduced The Whopper in 1957.

In a news release, the restaurant chain describes the limited-time menu items, which come in retro-style packaging:

*Wisconsin White Cheddar Whopper Sandwich: "Prepared with fire-grilled, USDA-certified ground beef, topped with thick-cut, hardwood-smoked bacon, natural Wisconsin white cheddar cheese, juicy tomatoes, freshly cut lettuce, crunchy pickle slices, sliced red onions, all on a toasted sesame seed bun."

Also available as a Whopper Jr. sandwich.

Suggested retail price starts at $4.49 and $2.19, respectively.

*Angry Whopper Sandwich: "Prepared with fire-grilled, USDA-certified ground beef, thick-cut hardwood smoked bacon, melted Habanero cheese, jalapeņo slices, spicy onion petals, red ripe tomatoes, crisp lettuce and angry sauce, all served on a toasted sesame seed bun."

Also available as a Whopper Jr. sandwich.

Suggested retail price starts at $4.49 and $2.19, respectively.

*Seasoned Sweet Potato Curly Fries: "A new 'twist' on the popular sweet potato fries, this savory sweet alternative is seasoned to perfection with a blend of spices and served hot and fresh each day."

Suggested retail price starts at $1.89.

Burger King didn't say how long the "limited time" menu items would be available.
