National Cheeseburger Day

18 Sep

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!

Friends – friends – friends.  You won’t believe what today is.  Today is National Cheeseburger Day.  Can you believe that?!  Now I’ll tell you a secret at the Hotel Thompson.  Who lives at the Hotel Thompson and loves to eat cheeseburgers of all kinds, shapes and/or sizes?  If you guessed Bacon’s dad, YOU are so right!

I think Bacon’s dad has like an endless tummy or maybe multiple tum-tum’s like a cow.  Yeah, that could be it!  Of course, he has gotten better in his age… something about not being able to eat like he once did.  But he still loves a good juicy burger.

Did you know that cheeseburgers can be dated back to the 1920’s?  In 1928, a cheeseburger officially made it to the menu of O’Dell’s which is a restaurant in Los Angeles, California.  It was on the menu listed as a cheeseburger smothered with chili.  Can you guess in 1928 how much the burger cost?  Would you believe 25 cents!?  Nowadays, look at the prices of a good juicy burger.  It will surely set you back a good $10.00!  In the 1930’s, the founder of Steak n’ Shake Gus Belt actually applied for a trademark on the word cheeseburger.

Do you know what the top 4 cheeses for a cheeseburger are?  1) American Cheese  2) Cheddar Cheese  3) Swiss Cheese and finally 4) Pepper Jack

I guess they didn’t ask us here in the south how we like our burgers topped with cheese.  Of course, we would say with Pimento Cheese and Bacon!
