Who’s hungry for some crazy burger news? I know I am!
BEHOLD THE “Mcbaguette!
This Wednesday (April 18), McDonald’s introduces the much anticipated McBaguette for a six-week run at about 1,230 stores in France. They will come in smaller sizes like this:

The burger-on-a-baguette – with Emmental cheese and mustard – is part of the trend to localized European menus that the website Burgerbusiness.com in October 2010 called “burger nationalism.”
FRIES TO GO!
Here’s a great idea: french fries sold from a vending machine. This one is from Japan, where they sell just about EVERYTHING in vending machines:
Who knows what they will taste like, but clearly this young woman is impressed:

A hamburger restaurant in Tokyo has decided to put a hamburger vending machine at the entrance of the restaurant. You put the coins and you get a hamburger right away. The problem is that there is only one hamburger available at a time, if you want a second hamburger you have to wait until the cook inside the restaurant restocks the machine with another one, or you can go inside the restaurant and order it.
Rocketnews24.com website offers this: a hamburger vending machine at a drive-in eatery in Saitama prefecture in Japan.
The vending machine can be found at “24 Hour Auto Restaurant Tekken Taro”, located in Gyoda city. While this ‘restaurant’ is staffed, all food is offered via one of the many vending machine lined up inside.
This is what they look like right before you eat them…enjoy!
Amsterdam also offers burgers via machine, and I found pictures of places all over Europe…
I found a search term on my blog that said “Led Zeppelin Eating Cheeseburger” and I thought that was funny, so I tweeted it. Rick Damigella immediately sent me this picture, of Jimmy Page eating a burger…THAT is the power of the internet!
And I followed up with a search for celebrities eating, and found this picture of Jimi Hendrix eating soup, and Katy Perry eating a burger as well – don’t you love the internet?
But of course the ultimate “hamburger eating” shot is this one: President Obama and Vice President Biden – looks good!
