Iowa Pork BLT Club Sandwich
Ah, bacon.... when cooked right, it can make for a scientifically perfect sandwich.
Even without science, a bacon sandwich like this definately fires up the appetite! (Check out their site
for the recipe!)
Angus Third Pounder exceeding sales goals in CA
McDonalds in Japan have had their 4 patty Mega Mac
now for some time, and it looks like they're testing the waters in California. They recently released "The Angus Third Pounder", a burger that contains between 720 calories to 860 calories, and it looks like people are gobbling it up! Although it's still early days, signs seem positive. Will McDonalds go back to selling real burgers instead of salads?

TOLUCA LAKE, Calif. - McDonald’s is fattening up its menu, testing the concept of putting one-third of a pound of beef on a bun. It would be its biggest burger yet. The Angus Third Pounder is being tested in California. It tastes like really big, super-sized Big N' Tasty. The patty is a little bit like a bigger, better Quarter Pounder. The question is, What took so long? When it comes to so-called premium burgers, McDonald’s is following the herd.
Cadbury Creme Eggs smaller?
Say it isn't so!!! Could it be true? Have Hershey's
shrunk the Cadbury Creme Egg
in a sneaky attempt to make more profit on each and every one during Easter 2007? It seems so! This video excerpt from Conan O'Brian seems to suggest that this year they've shrunk the humble Creme Egg. Shame on you Cadbury/Hershey's, shame!!! You think they would have realized people LOVE
the Giant Creme Eggs!
The Gateway Grizzlies "Sliders", Deep Fried Burgers
Expanding their hugely popular lineup of "Baseball's Best", the Gateway Grizzlies have come up with yet another supersized ballgame food creation. It's called, "The Slider", a thin-sliced, steam-grilled, square-shaped burger topped with cheese and grilled onions that is then breaded and deep-fried
. You may know the Gateway Grizzlies from their previous hit, Baseball's Best Burger (aka. The Luther Burger)
. I wonder what they'll think up next? Can't wait to see it!
The Gateway Grizzlies are proud to announce that they have added another new item to the “Baseball’s Best” line of concession items. “Baseball’s Best Slider” utilizes a thin-sliced, steam-grilled, square-shaped burger topped with cheese and grilled onions that is then breaded and deep-fried. The Grizzlies have added a unique concession item each of the least three seasons, making the Gateway Grizzlies experience at GCS Ballpark about much more than just baseball.
Scientists discover the Ultimate Bacon Sandwich
Forget the theory of relativity, something more important has been discovered! It's the ultimate bacon sandwich formula. 1000 hours of research, and 700 different variations of the sandwich tested between 50 volunteers have declared they have found the perfect formula for that perfect bacon batty... apparently it's all in the crispyness of the bacon... (I could have told them that!)
BRITISH scientists say they have found the formula for a perfect bacon butty, after 1000 hours and 700 variations of the beloved sandwich. The experts from Leeds University's Department of Food Science say the secret is in the crispiness of the bacon rashers, the BBC online reported.
The "King Size Creme Egg" campaign
I love Cadbury Creme Eggs
... if you've never had one, you really should go and try to find some. Even though they're a nice size, this site doesn't think they're quite big enough, so they've started a campaign to create a "King Size" Creme Egg. Perhaps they should try and make their own?
There's no excuse for not buying one - the only question is "How Do You Eat Yours?"
(Cadbury) But however you eat yours, wouldn't it be great if there was an extra large version of that most yummy of all confectionary creations? The "King Size" Creme Egg Campaign is proposing exactly that - a Creme Egg one and a half times bigger than the standard size.
Gal Sone 2kg Curry Challenge
] That amazing Gal Sone
is at it again. This time she's challenging 2 guys to a curry eating contest. Well... sort of. They get normal sized portions of currry, while Gal Sone has to down 2kg's (4.4 lb's) of it! As you'd expect, she makes light work of it, the question is, will her challengers be able to finish the standard sized portion?
The World's Smallest Microwave
You probably won't fit your Supersized Meals in here, but I thought it was worth a mention. It's the world's smallest microwave. About the size of a cooler, you can heat your lunch on the go!
The WaveBox is a Microwave lunchbox with a cooler built in - it can be powered anywhere you go, on AC or DC
Baseball's Best Slider
The Gateway Grizzlies
are at it again. After bringing us such brilliant concession items as Baseball’s Best Burger
(burger topped with sharp cheddar, two slices of bacon and a sliced Krispy Kreme donut as a bun) and Baseball’s Best Hotdog (a black angus hot dog with bacon, onions and cheese sauce) the Illinois semi-pro baseball club has brought you Baseball's Best Slider. This calorie atrocity gives you a two-pack of White Castle Sliders that have been battered up and deep fried for $4. Cheese sauce on the side costs and extra buck.
The article speaks for itself:
"So here’s my official review. It’s pretty awesome when it has been sitting in the studio for an hour. I can only imagine how great it is hot out of the fryer sitting at the ballpark. I couldn’t eat too much being that I’m down a gallbladder, but it basically tastes like an onion ring burger. So now what you’ve all been waiting for -- the calorie count. I didn't say this before but not only is it fried, but it's battered first. It’s just an estimate, but it looks to be around 600 calories and 40 grams of fat for the two-pack. That’s 90 percent of your daily recommended fat based on a 2,000 calorie diet. The Grizzlies open their season on May 23. "

Atlanta earns 'best burger' crown, Ann's Snack Bar, Atlanta, GA
By JOHN KESSLER
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Published on: 03/10/07
Veteran Wall Street Journal food reporter Raymond Sokolov traveled America in search of the best hamburger and says he found the hands-down winner at Ann's Snack Bar on Memorial Drive.
Owner Ann Price's iconic "Ghetto Burger" — a double-patty bacon cheeseburger sandblasted with seasoning salt — bested dozens of better-known wimpies. Sokolov called it a "masterpiece" and "the next level of burgerhood."
