Get your stretchy pants on, because May 28th is National Burger Day! Ahh, America… Land of the free refills, home of the gastrointestinally brave, you have done it again. This day is in honor of the visceral act of slapping your meat between some buns and getting down.

The burger is a time-honored culinary delight of diversity. From the bite size slider to the mammoth mouthwatering mayhem of some of the world’s most amazing eating challenges, we know how to burger. Almost all restaurants feature a version on the menu, and many fast food joints build their image on burgers, and little else.

Go big or go home

In our quest to constantly do it bigger and better than everyone else, Americans have one-upmanship down to a science. There are more food contests and eating challenges here than anywhere else on the globe! (We also have one of the highest rates of obesity, no correlation, of course).

Burgers are like pizza, some people will put anything on it. From pineapple rings and barbecue sauce to breakfast burgers with eggs and ham, there are even burgers with donuts for buns! Some people live by the motto:

The first three letters in diet are D-I-E. Live it up!

If you are like me, a burger isn’t complete without bacon! Bacon burger lovers can double up on the fun because you can infuse bacon as well! NexGen Medibles has actually come out with pre-packaged, infused bacon, for your dining pleasure. Made with high-quality nug run, full-melt Earl, it is as tasty as it is beautiful.
