The $400 White Castle Burger Is Small But Classy

WhiteCastleSlider21

White Castle hamburgers are classy… we know this to be true. But if you’d like to make them off-the-charts sophisticated, you might try something like the $400 White Castle Slider.

Created by Nick over at Dude Foods — the very expensive slider is made possible by adding 15 Year Cheddar, white truffles, duck foie gras and port pâté, prosciutto, Russian caviar, and a quail egg to the already awesome slider.

The taste-test result, as Nick describes it… terrible. But he seems to be more than pleased with the aesthetic of the slider, describing it as his “Mona Lisa.” Sadly, this means that there will be no Crave Cases of these. Just in case you had $12,000 to spare.

A Five-Patty Cheeseburger Computer Mouse Because Japan

burger-compuer-mouse

Because Japan insists on outdoing everyone else, when it comes to fast food-related technology and crazy — fast food chain, Lotteria, has created a giant cheeseburger computer mouse.

The impressive, yet somewhat impractical, mouse stands five patties high. It was designed to celebrate the seventh anniversary of Lotteria’s line of “zeppin” (superior) line of burgers.

Although the cheeseburger mouse is one of a kind… one lucky winner on Twitter will receive the mouse and one wicked case of carpal tunnel syndrome.

These Giant Crocheted Food Hats Are Everything

Because, who doesn’t want to be as warm and as stylish as possible this winter? Phil Ferguson, aka ChiliPhilly, does. So he’s created several crocheted hats, designed to look like he’s wearing giant food items on his head.

The hats are crocheted by Phil, without a pre-existing pattern. Although, the hats are one-ups and not available for sale, Phil admits that he hasn’t even worn one out in public. For one, he admits that he doesn’t want them to get ruined. Another reason, perhaps, is the general public not quite being ready for a giant pizza or hot dog-head walking around.

Check out a few of Phil’s food heads below, with more to be found at Instagram.

Burgerporn Inspired By Various US Cities

Aged Cheddar Cheese, Havarti Cheese, Beef Patty, Fried Mac and Cheese, Bacon, and Pickled Jalapeños

The Cheese and Burger Society has teased us with their burger and cheese porn before. This time, their smut is in the form of cheeseburgers inspired by a few US cities.

Although the burgers’ ingredients help showcase the cities they’re representing, the real star here is the cheese on each burger, brought to us by the Wisconsin milk marketing board. Happy drooling.

Wendy’s Burger With A Baked Potato For A Bun

As the trend of forgoing a traditional burger bun continues, it’s good to see heavy carbs still getting some love.

Luckily, the trend of mashing up fast food items is just as popular… bringing us to the Wendy’s Burger With Baked Potato Buns.

Brought to us by Redditor, Wileypost, the frankenburger is made possible by ordering a Wendy’s Single, a baked potato — then bringing them together into the perfect mash-up. If you’re not carb-conscious, that is.
