It was too good to be true.

Fast food giant Burger King is planning to bump the price of its $1 double cheeseburger -- a cost that had franchise owners up in arms -- by 19 cents in April. In its place, the company will remove a 5-cent slice of cheese and offer hungry customers a sandwich with two flame-boiled patties but only one slice of cheese.

That's the change. One less slice of cheese.
