Blue Apron, known for delivering incredible cooking experiences, today announced a partnership with 20th Century Fox Consumer Products to bring three burger recipes from Bob’s Burgers, the Emmy Award®-winning animated series on FOX, uniquely designed by Chef Alvin Cailan of famed Los Angeles restaurant Eggslut, to its menus beginning this summer.

Two of the recipes––the “Quantum of Salsa Burger” and the “Gouda Wife Burger”––were featured on episodes of Bob’s Burgers during this past season. These recipes will be available for Blue Apron customers to create in their home kitchens during the weeks of July 23 and August 20, respectively. “The Absentee Shallot Burger,” available to Blue Apron customers the week of September 17, will be featured on the season nine premiere of Bob’s Burgers, which is scheduled to air in late September.

Brian Gartland, vice president, Global Partnerships and Business Development, 20th Century Fox Consumer Products confirmed what every fan is thinking.

“We are so excited to bring the Bob’s Burgers and Blue Apron brands together with this fun, new partnership that allows the many passionate and enthusiastic Bob’s Burgers fans to directly connect with––and create––recipes featured on the show.”

Chef Cailan previously collaborated with Bob’s Burgers in December 2016 and December 2017, creating specialty recipes inspired by the show for pop-up restaurants in Los Angeles and New York City.

“Until now, my recipe creations were only accessible where my restaurants are located in Los Angeles or New York. I am thrilled to partner with Blue Apron and Bob’s Burgers to bring three of my original burger recipes to homes across the country this summer!”

The recipes, which will be available on Blue Apron’s Two-Person and Family Plan offerings, include The Quantum of Salsa Burger with Corn-Pepper Salsa & Onion Rings, The Gouda Wife Burger with Cucumber-Radish Salsa & Roasted Sweet Potatoes, and The Absentee Shallot Burger with Caramelized Shallots & Fontina Cheese Fries.

Christine Fu, Head of Partnerships at Blue Apron, agreed,

“Bob’s Burgers has built a highly engaged and loyal fan base over the past eight years. In collaboration with the incredibly talented Chef Alvin Cailan, we look forward to bringing the creative and whimsical recipes that are featured on Bob’s Burgers to life through the Blue Apron meal experience.”

Blue Apron is also collaborating with Hedley & Bennett, the LA-based brand known for its handcrafted aprons and workwear worn in kitchens around the world, to create a limited-edition Blue Apron x Bob’s Burgers apron, which will be sold exclusively through the Blue Apron website beginning in August. Blue Apron will donate a portion of the proceeds for all Blue Apron x Bob’s Burgers aprons sold during the month of September to Feeding America, as part of the Bob’s Burgers National Cheeseburger Day celebration on September 18.

Additional recipes featured in Bob’s Burgers appear in the New York Times best-selling cookbook, The Bob’s Burgers Burger Book.

Blue Apron x Bob’s Burgers recipes will be available only to Blue Apron customers and can be ordered for the week of July 23 starting now. For more information, visit: blueapron.com/bobsburgers.

Carl’s Jr. profits are about to get high. Really high.

The fast food restaurant known for charbroiled burgers and clammy commercials has announced they will serve the new Rocky Mountain High: CheeseBurger Delight to meat and grass connoisseurs alike in Denver, Colorado.

The burger consists of two 100% charbroiled patties, pickled jalapeños, pepper jack cheese, french fries, and a tangy Santa Fe sauce filled with hemp-based CBD oil on a premium bun. The Rocky Mountain High: CheeseBurger Delight will only be available on April 20, but the company is testing the innovation for now.

“The new Rocky Mountain High: CheeseBurger Delight ties back to our core strategy of being the first to bring bold and unexpected flavors that are at the forefront of hot restaurant trends to a quick service menu. From our early introduction into plant-based options to bringing the rare indulgence of truffles to our menu with the new Bacon Truffle Angus Burger, our customers have come to expect innovative and unique menu offerings, and we’re thrilled to be the first quick service restaurant to be testing CBD infused options.” – Patty Trevino, Senior Vice President, Brand Marketing, Carl’s Jr

The burger will contain 5 mg of CBD sourced from Bluebird Botanicals, a Colorado-based Hemp Extract and CBD company. Although diners won’t experience any psychoactive side effects from the CBD, some might see stars after downing a box of Froot Loops Mini Donuts.

The Rocky Mountain High: CheeseBurger Delight will be available at the Carl’s Jr. located at 4050 Colorado Blvd. in Denver, from 6 a.m. MT until supplies last on April 20.

One of the most recognizable mainstays of American pop culture, DC Comic’s Superman, will be commemorated with a range of limited edition pure silver collectibles to celebrate his 80th-anniversary milestone.

Making his debut in 1938, Superman became an instant hit and has been thrilling fans with his adventures and extraordinary powers ever since. Known to many as “The Man of Steel,” he has become a universal icon. Superman is the people’s hero, fighting the never-ending battle for truth and justice.

The first DC Comics Super Hero Pure Silver Miniature has just been released to celebrate Superman’s 80th Anniversary, along with a Silver Coin Note collection. The collectibles are produced by Auckland based company New Zealand Mint in partnership with Warner Bros Consumer Products on behalf of DC Entertainment.

Designed by 3D master sculptor Alejandro Pereira Ezcurra, with a limited worldwide production of only 1,000 casts, the miniature of Superman has a guaranteed minimum 150g pure silver and is finished with an antique silver polish. The miniature is approx. 10cm tall and the silver purity, DC Comic copyright, and unique production number are detailed on the base.

The Silver Coin Note collection comes in an album that includes six 5g pure silver coin notes featuring amazing images of iconic Superman comic book covers through the ages. The album is Superman-themed with every page specifically designed to complement each comic book cover, detailing Superman’s evolution through the years from 1939 to 2017.

Each silver coin note design is brought to life through a combination of engraving and colour printing. The obverse of the coin notes features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and they are legal tender in Niue. Details of the notes’ authenticity are printed on the reverse of the album’s protective cover.

Simon Harding, Chief Executive of NZ Mint, expressed the company’s excitement to partner with the Man of Steel in a press release.

“Empire magazine named him the greatest comic book hero of all time, he has sold millions of comics and become a household name. Such is his popularity it is no wonder he is now considered one of the world’s most popular Super Heroes and we are thrilled to bring this monumental anniversary collection to fans.”
