Food Reward Friday

This week's lucky "winner"... the Reese's PBC Burger!!
Image credit: The Works

What does PBC stand for?  Peanut Butter Cups, of course!  An Ontario burger chain called The Works has created a hamburger with Reese's Peanut Butter Cups candy not only on top of the burger, but also inside the actual patty.  Plus fried onions and bacon.  It's like Halloween inside your burger!

I'm not even going to try to justify this sideshow act from a food reward perspective; it probably exists for the entertainment and shock value.  I'm certainly entertained and shocked.

Hat tip to WHS reader Paul Adams for the lead.

For me, that looks like food punishment. I doubt anyone on this list is eating garbage like that. How about illustrations of meals that look healthy but actually aren't?

Fascinating that burgers sound great, and peanut butter cups sound great, but mixing them together sounds terrible.

Fried chicken sounds great. French fries sound great, but throw them in a blender . . .

Throw them in the blender and..... I've literally done this 😂 tastes like cluggy salty chicken soup 😦
As for the burger, I'd probably only get half way through it before feeling extremely sick, I dunno how some people do it!

Agreed on the burger & peanut butter cup, John. Sounds truly nauseating.

Not so sure I would find a fried chicken & french fry smoothie to be quite as disgusting. Actually sounds kind of interesting. :-)

Hey, Stephen. I'm going to be starting a mostly vegan diet, based on potatoes, beans, and veggies. Should I supplement my diet with a protein powder? And should I supplement with cod liver oil? I love plain potatoes and they fill me up. But, I'm worried about becoming deficient in fat soluble vitamins, and possibly protein. Thanks.

@John

but throw them in a blender ..."

... then make patties and fry them in bacon or duck fat ... I bet you would eat it :D

Hi Mark,

You don't need protein powder. You said mostly vegan-- if you are eating whole plant foods plus a bit of eggs, dairy, seafood, and organ meat you should be OK on fat-soluble vitamins. I would rather eat fatty fish than take fish oil (e.g. sardines), but a bit of fish oil would be OK too.

The big secret about Weston Price and his fat-soluble vitamins is that some of the healthy cultures he studied didn't eat much animal food (apparent in Nutrition and Physical Degeneration). But they did eat SOME animal food, and they also got sunlight for vitamin D.

I am Brazilian and food without beef isn't food. I am trying to reduce fruits and vegetables in my diet and eat just meat.
