Burger MadnessOctober 13, 2006 at 10:01 am | Posted in food | 12 Comments
Wandering idly through the grocery store yesterday, I spotted this:
I’d like to point out that this is an entire bacon cheeseburger, in a box, and at the bottom it says you can microwave this for 40 seconds, in its box, and it will come out soft and golden.
I don’t know. I mean, I’m no burger snob, but can this possibly be a good idea? This is making McDonalds look like gourmet food.
It reminds me of when I was living in Copenhagen, and spotted a jar of peanut butter in the grocery store. But it wasn’t some fancy imported jar of Jiff or Peter Pan — no, the Danes had taken it upon themselves to produce their own peanut butter. But they still had this idea that it’s an American product, so they decorated the jar with the most adorable icons of American culture. I believe there was a Statue of Liberty, something that resembled the Brooklyn Bridge, a Chevrolet, and a football player.
Sadly, I neglected to take a photo at the time, but happily, I’m not the only person on the web who was amused by this product. Small world.
Camembert au lait cru, just starting to run. Hmm, maybe I’ll take an early lunch.
