What’s in a McDonald’s hamburger?


Have you ever wondered what kind of beef McDonald’s uses in their hamburger? What about the “pink slime” that was all over the news? Also, what’s up with the McRib?

In an effort to become more transparent with their consumers and provide heath awareness, McDonald’s started a campaign called “Our food. Your questions.” Throughout the campaign, anyone can ask McDonald’s questions concerning their products and they will respond. There are already a bunch of informative YouTube videos online (hosted by Grant Imahara from Mythbusters), that answer the questions so far.

Check out this one about what kind of beef they use:

Do you have questions you would like to ask McDonald’s? Have other comments or concerns regarding their products? Visit their campaign website here:

OR feel free to contact us at Everything Burger and we will forward anything towards them! This is definitely a step in the right direction in spreading health awareness within the fast food industry. Campaigns like these should only help open dialogue between consumers and retailers to bolster the creation of healthier meal options.

Read a Book, Get a Burger


Lucky kids…

From Santee Patch:

We’d all love our kids to read more books. The Santee Library has found a way to get kids on the reading train—through their stomachs!

The In-N-Out Program at the library is a way to encourage kids, ages 4-12, to read more books. Here’s how it works:

  1. Kids get a “Food for Thought” stamp card at the library
  2. The card gets stamped after reading a book
  3. After you’ve read the set of five books, you’ve earned a certificate for a free hamburger or cheeseburger at any In-N-Out location

Hamburger Trucker Hat


From blogs.villagevoice.com:

“What happens when the hamburger on your hat looks much better than the hamburger you’re eating?

Predictably, East Village favorite gift and t-shirt store Alphabets (115 Avenue A, 212-475-7250) has been accumulating food-themed gag gifts over the last couple of years. But do you really want to give one of these to your foodie friends, who’d probably prefer a paring knife or handsome pot holder?”
