Looking for a tasty way to recognize Nicole Elizabeth "Snooki" Polizzi's new baby?
Bethesda-based burger chain BGR announced Monday that to celebrate the birth of baby Lorenzo Dominic LaValle this past weekend, from now until the end of September it will be bringing back its "Snooki burger" -- a beef patty topped with grilled jalapeno, a slice of Philadelphia brand cream cheese and "mojo" sauce, on a brioche bun. (Meatballs, oddly, are not a part of this sandwich.)
Like the "Jersey Shore" star herself, the Snooki burger provoked strong and not-always-positive reactions when it was introduced for a limited time in 2010. As the Serious Eats blog put it:
Eating a Snooki Burger is a lot like the experience of watching an episode of Jersey Shore: Your friends are all talking about it, you figure it can't be that bad, and five minutes or two bites later you're desperate to scrub the entire experience from your brain. The burger tastes EXACTLY how you would imagine it to: like shame and self-tanner.
BGR will be giving out a free "baby" slider version of the burger with every "Snooki burger" order. Which, depending on your taste, may bode well or poorly both for your meal and for little Lorenzo.
