The origins of International Burger Day can be traced back to 2009 when it was established by Australian burger enthusiasts who wanted to celebrate the iconic food around the world. This day is celebrated on 28May.
The world's largest burger, cooked in 1982 in Michigan, weighed a whopping 3,591 pounds (1,630 kg). It took a crane to flip it during the cooking process!
The average American consumes approximately three burgers per week, totaling about 156 burgers per year. That's a lot of patties!
In 2011, a group of scientists and food experts created the world's first laboratory-grown burger. It cost a staggering $330,000 to produce and was intended to explore sustainable alternatives to traditional meat.
