Special Fiesta 2017 Whataburger Medals Coming Soon

By  | 


Fiesta 2017 will take place from April 20th – 30th, so it’s time to start gathering your medals! Whataburger recently released their new design, and it features a brightly colored pendant of a box of Whataburger fries alongside a tub of spicy ketchup and regular ketchup next to “Fiesta 2017.” The medal is so perfectly San Antonio that it’s a work of art!

KENS5 says that today, a Whataburger pop-up store will open downtown at the fast food restaurant at  412 E. Commerce St, near Presa Street. Locals will be able to get their hands on the precious medal before it goes on sale online on March 21st at shop.whataburger.com for $9.99. If you want to snag one online, MySA.com warns that Whataburger officials say, “They’ve been known to sell out in minutes.”

Whataburger made a Facebook event for the pop-up store happening. They write that each customer can only purchase up to two of the medals, and they must be paid for with credit card. Since the medals will only be available for two hours (between 3 and 5) and it was only recently announced, most people will definitely be competing for a chance to buy online. There’s no word yet on the exact time they will go on sale at the online store.
