akaburger2

Burger King Japan, already responsible for an all-black cheeseburger, is back with a further assault on our rods and cones.

The Aka Burger is their latest release of a food item that just ain’t right. Available as a burger or chicken sandwich, the Aka sports an all-red bun and red cheese.

The color is made possible by tomato powder and includes ‘Angry Sauce’ — a spicy Sichuan fermented bean paste, also red. The red burgers will be available from July 3rd until mid-August. Anyone who gets their hands on one… please send photos.

Sandwiches Deconstructed and Organized Neatly On Vintage Lunch Trays by David Schwen

dschwen-organized

Artist David Schwen has a way of using minimalism, incorporating everyday objects, and making the end result so awesome that it hurts.

Schwen’s recent “How To” series is a perfect example of this. Created for The Daily Share, the series takes a few well-known sandwiches and lunch items, breaks them down into parts, and presents them segmented on a vintage lunch tray.

The images that Schwen creates become a thorough exercise in minimalism, deconstruction, ephemera and food styling. And, if you didn’t already know what makes up a cheeseburger or Reuben, the photos can be a handy tutorial in sandwich-making.

This Seemingly Brand New McDonald’s Cheeseburger Is Actually Twenty Years Old

twenty-year-old-burger

Whether or not you like to eat McDonald’s food items, you cannot deny their resiliency and seemingly infinite shelf-life. Evidenced in the recent photo seen above, this Quarter Pounder with cheese was actually purchased in 1995.

The story goes that two friends from Adelaide, Australia purchased the burger in ’95 for a friend. After the friend did not claim the burger, the two decided to keep it indefinitely. Fast forward to 2015, and the cheeseburger not only still exists, but it appears as though it was just bought.

We assume that these two friends are just experienced embalmers or sorcerers of some kind. Or, perhaps McDonald’s resiliency to outside elements is just that terrifying.
