Petition For In-N-Out Veggie Burgers Now Has Thousands Of Signatures


With In-N-Out Burger, what you see is exactly what you get. So why would anyone expect the menu to offer meatless burgers at the popular West Coast fast food chain?

A petition of more than 25,000 signatures was started on, addressed to In-N-Out execs, to get a vegetarian burger on the menu.

Not interested in multiple orders of French fries or buns with just cheese, an organization called “The Good-Food Institute” is fighting to make In-N-Out more nutritious and less meaty.

The petition claims that In-N-Out is letting customers down by:

“…failing to serve anything that would satisfy a burger-loving customer who wants a healthy, humane, and sustainable option.”

The thing is that In-N-Out’s menu has been around for decades. They really haven’t changed anything since then, and they shouldn’t have to now. Cumbersome adjustments like setting up a new grill and process just to cook the veggie patties makes for some odd and unnecessary changes.

If you want meatless options, there are plenty of spots you can visit that offers them. Heck, your petition even lists a few of them.

In-N-Out has yet to respond to the steadily growing petition. While we watch the petition numbers climb, we’re gonna go ahead and grab a fat Double Double for lunch.

Man Changes Name To Bacon Double Cheeseburger, Fiancee Is Not Amused

Most people change their names because they hate their birth name, or perhaps are fugitives on the run. However, one suburban Londoner did it because his new one was just way better.

Sam Smith, a native of Muswell Hill, London, England, decided on a whim to change his name to Bacon Double Cheeseburger after drunkenly deliberating for what must have been a very long time in a bar with his “friends.” According to an interview with the Evening Standard, the origin of Mr. Cheeseburger’s name is a tale as old as time.

“It was the culmination of probably too many drinks in the pub where there was a conversation about names. Bacon Double Cheeseburger was pretty much the first thing that came up. Everyone loves bacon, don’t they?”

“It was largely the most ridiculous thing we could think of. My friends were quite supportive of anything that makes me look silly, as good friends are.”

Even his father thought the name change was hilarious, granting his son’s request to address him properly from now on. His mother was not entirely pleased, although her lividity doesn’t hold a candle to his fiancee.

“My fiancée is fairly reluctant about marrying a Cheeseburger. That’s something we’re discussing a lot. No girl ever dreams of spending her big day marrying a man called Bacon. But I’ve got no regrets at all. It’s been a very fun experience and it’s made a lot of people laugh.”

Indeed it has, Bacon. Indeed it has.

Chocolate’s Shape Can Change Its Taste, Says Science


When Britain’s beloved Dairy Milk got a makeover, the country was in uproar, claiming that the taste had completely changed.  The chunks of chocolate are now curved, and according to some reviewers, taste “oily and sickly.”

Even though Cadbury said the recipe hadn’t changed at all, scientists, chocolatiers, and chefs all agree that shape can absolutely affect the way chocolate tastes.  It influences how quickly the chocolate melts, which in turn affects the order and speed with which certain food molecules are released onto the tongue and into the nose, creating our experience of taste.  In regards to the new Cadbury bar, the change in shape potentially changed the way these chemicals are released, leading to a new, if less pleasant flavor.

It’s important to note that our memories of food and shape can also affect our perception of the food’s flavor if it changes.
