The newest burgers at Slater’s 50/50 may smaller in size, but everything else about them is big — the flavors, the buzz surrounding them, and even more significantly, their impact.

Exclusively available as Slater’s ‘Burger Of The Month’ during August of 2017, the premium burger chain developed a sweet and savory combination of two new burger creations that are actually smaller-scale versions of their classic ‘Old Timey’ and ‘Peanut Butter and Jellousy’ burgers — deep-fried and served on a stick.
The “Old Timey” features a Black Canyon Angus Beef patty, thick cut bacon, American cheese, grilled onion, lettuce, tomato, and 100 island dressing on a mini brioche bun, covered in crispy panko breadcrumbs, and the “Peanut Butter and Jellousy” comes with a Black Canyon Angus beef patty, thick-cut bacon, and peanut butter on a mini brioche bun, coated in chocolate cereal crumbs and smothered in strawberry jelly.
Those who are already fans of Slater’s signature burger offerings will be able to enjoy them in a whole new way, while also contributing to a powerful cause. Slater’s Burger Pops were ultimately developed in collaboration with Foodbeast and Project Hope Alliance, a Costa Mesa-based nonprofit organization committed to ending the cycle of homelessness.
A portion of the proceeds from the Burger Pops at all six Slater’s 50/50 California locations — Anaheim Hills, Huntington Beach, Pasadena, Rancho Cucamonga, San Diego, and San Marcos — will be donated to Project Hope Alliance. Even more, Elysian Brewing Company will match Slater’s 50/50’s total donation to Project Hope Alliance.
Needless to say, we expect these little guys to be pretty pop-ular.
