  • Burger King Japan’s New Ninja Burger Comes with a Huge Hulking Slab of Bacon

    Bacon might be the least “ninja” ingredient out there. Aside from being bright-ass red, its scent alone has the power to send every fat kid (or fat kid at heart) running from within at least a three mile radius. Still, we wouldn’t want our ninja burgers made any other way. Starting October 25, Burger King Japan is rolling out a black-bunned hamburger called the “Black Ninja.” Like most of the country’s other chromatically-challenged eats, the BN gets its hue from the bamboo charcoal used to make it, which in this case, also happens to impart a nice smoky smell. But...

The hoax, which first appeared on Foodbeast, got mentioned on some blogs, on a newspaper website and even garnered a tweet and photograph from an ESPN and ABC News reporter who declared...

The plaintiffs intend to oblige the company to indicate the complete list of ingredients on packaging, rather than the content of protein, fat and carbohydrates. Representatives of the Consumer Rights Protection Society claim that concealing the content of products the company violates the status of the retail outlet of finished products, not to mention the fact that it misleads consumers. According to experts, the range of milkshakes, which the chain sells, can not be referred to as "milk" under...

"We've seen the connection between what kids eat and how well they perform in school," he said. Some 680,000 out of 1.1 million New York children participate in the school lunch program - a big chunk of the...

Orgad Holdings, Burger King's Israeli franchise, announced Sunday that Israel's 52 Burger Kings will be converted to Burger Ranches, and will stop operating in August. A press release by the company – which owns both restaurant chains – said their research indicates that Israelis prefer the taste of Burger Ranch to that of Burger King. Among both, many eateries are kosher.

But have we treated it with the respect it deserves? No. The hamburger, like so many things, has become a victim of industrialization. When did it become acceptable to turn this beloved American food into frozen hockey pucks? Was it the kids meal? Was it having a fast food chain on every corner?

    Forget talk of a recession - a new $175 burger has set the city's gold standard for conspicuous consumption. Literally. The Richard Nouveau - from the Wall Street Burger Shoppe, natch - comes topped with a blizzard of real gold flakes, plus 25 grams of black truffles, a seared slab of foie gras and an aged Gruyere typically reserved for a high-class cheese tray.

    Steel your stomach for 'world's biggest burger' There's super-sizing, and there's super-sizing - and then there's this gut-busting attempt at a record-breaking hamburger. This not-so-fast food weighs in at a hefty 134lb for the burger, slapped inside a 50lb bun, and needs to be ordered 24 hours in advance. And any diner giving in to temptation - or taking up the challenge of tucking in - will be hit by a bill for $350. The mighty meal - dubbed "The Absolutely Ridiculous Burger" - is being served up at Mallie's Sports Bar and Grill in Detroit, Michigan. Owner Steve Mallie...

    Ronald Cass's was the best column to date on the Sandy Berger scandal. We commented on it in "Something here touches a nerve." Cass follows up the earlier column with an equally excellent (column today) occasioned by Berger's surrender of his law license. Cass writes: We don't know with any certainty what is missing, which papers exactly are gone, or what notes - and whose notes - may have been on them. Berger's lawyer asserted that the 9/11 Commission had copies of all the material Berger stole and destroyed. But if that is so, why would Berger risk so much...

    On July 6, 2006, Stonebridge International, a global strategy firm, announced that it had added a new member to its high-profile, five-member advisory board – former Democrat Rep. Lee Hamilton. True to form, the major media ignored the Hamilton appointment. They should not have. Hamilton, who had served as vice chairman of the 9/11 Commission, had just joined a firm headed by the man who had criminally undermined that very Commission, Stonebridge chairman and founder Samuel "Sandy" Berger. In the words of a recent House Committee report, Berger had perpetrated "a disturbing breach of trust and protocol that compromised the...

    CHICAGO -- Pam Branka would often talk about the recent murder of a manager at a Burger King in suburban Chicago, but she never believed the same fate could befall her at the Burger King where she worked for 15 years in a small northeast Illinois community, her husband said. The 46-year-old mother of one and a manager at the Burger King in Momence, about 50 miles south of Chicago, were found dead inside the fast-food restaurant on Saturday, Kankakee County Coroner Robert Gessner said. He identified the other victim as Paul Jones, 49, of Donovan.
