Biscoff on a burger? Surely you can't be serious!
No, lockdown hasn't driven me round the twist, this is an actual thing!
A while back I wrote about the catering sized tub of Biscoff spread that you could order. After that, I fantasised a lot about what I'd spread it all on. Once I'd dreamed of toast, waffles, pancakes, Biscoff biscuits, gingernut biscuits, a Ryvita (to see if it makes the palatable), crumpets, and finally just bare-fisting it out of the tub and into my mouth, reclined against a wall like some gluttonous Greek god. Think Dionysus but for biscuit based spreads. Throughout that, I never thought of putting it on a burger. But someone did.
It just looks... well, I'll leave that up to you. Image; @stripclub_streetfood on Instagram
Filled with a colossal 4,184 calories this Biscoff burger behemoth calls Stripclub Streetfood home. It's creator, Tom Hope, 33 from Solihul calls it a "perfect marriage of the sweet and savoury and works so well". Apparently, lots of customers order the item out of intrigue and rather like it. ‘It’s similar to salted caramel because it hits both sweet and savoury notes in your mouth, making it doubly as good." I'm not convinced personally, least of all by the concept of chowing down on two days worth of calories in one hit!
Not a conventional parts list for a burger I think you'll agree! And where's the pickle at?
Still, what do you make of this meaty monstrosity? A perfect fusion of mellow meat and sugary sweet? Or just simply far too much to even process? Let me know in the comments.
Smaller versions are available. Not that the size was the immediate issue here... Image; @stripclub_streetfood on Instagram.
