Pocket Burger Finally Lets You Put a “Hidden Treasure” Inside Every Hamburger

What do you do with your leftovers and cooking scraps? Well now you can easily stick them inside of a ground beef patty with the help of Pocket Burger!

Pocket Burger has to be the most nauseating infomercial since the Bullet Express. In fact, you can use the “flavor pockets” to store all the excess food sliced up by the Bullet Express.

The Pocket Burger also contributes to the venerable infomercial black-and-white cinematic tradition of human beings struggling mightily to accomplish simple tasks; this time it’s putting toppings on a burger and eating it. And, really, I have to express some skepticism that burgers containing stuffed “flavor pockets” are actually going to be less messy than regular hamburgers.

The infomercial also keeps up the equally-annoying Snuggie tradition of a cutesy opening rhyme:

You stack the toppings high
Then try to bite
And it slides out of sight.

If the people on this infomercial are so incompetent that they cannot eat a burger, then I suspect they will also have trouble keeping their band-aids and wedding rings out of the flavor pockets.

Maybe I’m an old fuddy-duddy but I prefer my food without any “hidden treasures.” I have honestly never had any desire to try a “Mac & Cheese” hamburger. I’ll stick to my “boring burgers.”

  • I would like to think that it would be pleasantly surprising, like a Chinese mooncake. But then again, knowing the average American, the center will probably be a goopy mess of cheese, bacon, and ranch dressing.

  • Dear god, I’d love to see what you’d make of this thing, if possible:

    Little Giant Blueberries:

    Not nearly as fascinatingly horrible as Pocket Burger but pretty special.

  • I have to agree that the last thing anyone would want to find in a burger is a “surprise”, no matter what it is; I found an ice cube in a burger once!

    I just watched the Little Giant Blueberries commercial. I love the generic “U.S. Plant Expert” who clearly looks like he has nothing to do with the product.

  • That blueberries commercial is hilarious! I’ve seen it on TV a few times. XDDDD

  • “Pocket Burger” sounds like a perfect tool for pranksters (duh) or jackasses (“Baby, there’s a little bit of me inside every burger.”)…

    I just threw up in my mouth a little. 🙁 I’ll just stick to regular burgers, thanks.
