2008 Hamburger of the Year
Its time that we recognize those that had the courage to take the hamburger further than the normal 3 patties and 8 pieces of bacon that most of us enjoy as a pre dinner snack. Here are the nominees for the best hamburger of 2008.
1. Australia’s Hungry Jack : Quad Stack– Apparently the Australians are good for something other than Elle Macpherson and Arnold Schwarzenegger. 4 patties, 4 pieces of cheese, bacon 71g of fat….and pure love.
2. Hardee’s Thickburger – From the company that brought us Paris Hilton in a bikini cleaning a car, which I think is exactly where she should stay, we have the Thickburger. Two things set this beast apart from other burgers. “Butter Flavored Shortening” and Hardee’s CEO quote “This isn’t a burger for tree huggers” God bless you Hardee’s
3. The Krispy Kreme Burger –As I type this I just got a tear in my eye. Whoever decided to take a bacon cheeseburger and slap it between two Krispy Kreme donuts maybe the American of the year. Some may say this is over the top, I say this is why God invented heart transplants.
And the winner is…………….The Krispy Kreme Burger
I can see it now…”Shit! the bun got soggy on the way home from Jack in the Box, I knew I should have gone ahead and eaten the third Ultimate Cheeseburger in the car. Wait a minute…I still have that box of donuts I stole from work on Friday. Eureka! “
