When I was Christmas shopping last month, I saw some type of burger bomb sauce, which sounded intriguing, like maybe some chipotle-based sauce. (BTW, have you noticed that chipotle seemed to be the top food-related buzzword of 2011? But I digress…)
I looked at the ingredients, and noticed that the first 4 ingredients are mayo, pickles, ketchup, mustard. As we’ve discussed numerous times on the blog, pickles are not food, so they don’t belong in any sauce. (I can’t stand mustard, either, but will acknowledge it’s edible to some people.)
So maybe this sauce is marketed as a practical joke type gift, in that it will result in the destruction of your burger, from an edible point-of-view. I figured using the term “bomb” meant it would be the bomb, but obviously they meant it more literally.
Ironically, if someone had given me this sauce, I would probably blow it up… 🙂
