A restaurant in Canada is serving a burger stuffed with Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
 
Oh, Canada.

Ontario burger restaurant The Works has a new special on its menu: the Reese PBC. It's a hamburger —you know, ground beef — stuffed with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Candy.

I've heard of peanut butter on hamburgers before, but this is the first time I've heard of low quality peanut butter and chocolate being put on a perfectly good burger.

I don't eat there because it's the kind of restaurant that thinks the louder they play the music the cooler the atmosphere :rolleyes: but I know people who do and although this example is gross their menu features some other pretty dubious options in my opinion but also does have some interesting options especially if you want gluten free. But I admit it any place that calls sandwiches "sammies" isn't a restaurant I want to eat at :).

There is one of these in my home town. It just opened recently.
I haven't gone there but have heard some good things about it. But then, not from people whose taste I know and rely on.

The Works has some good burgers, and some "interesting" choices.

You can choose beef patties, elk patties, chicken, turkey or even just a Portobello cap.

My problem when I go there is that my tastes in burger are too "classical" so I look at the menu and always choose the same one.

This one doesn't list peanut butter cup stuffed patties as an option.

There is a reason the classics are classics. It's like when Paul Williams was asked if the Carpenters were too 'vanilla', and he replied "and isn't vanilla a wonderful flavor?" It's fun to have the occasional adventure, but a good solid comfortable go-to is good to have - satisfying on multiple levels. I remember Julia Child making a classic simple hamburger, and commenting as she tasted it how fundamentally satisfying a basic burger is.

eta: I think I have the Williams quote a little off, but that's the gist.

Just like tasty french-fries and a touch of salt. Or buttered popcorn. Sometimes simpler makes it familiar and therefore more enjoyable.

OY

Beef patty, bacon, cheese, tomato, lettuce, mushrooms, mustard and BBQ sauce instead of ketchup.

I can get this at 5 Guys for half the price of a Works burger and it's OH SO satisfying...

:D

And 5 Guys has peanuts, lots of peanuts. Not a good choice if you have allergies of course but then you wouldn't be eating a burger stuffed with a Reese Peanut Butter Cup either.

Going back to the OP...
I am trying to put those two tastes together in my head and failing miserably.
Who thought this was a good idea?

I like to a little out there for a burger once in a while, but being one that prefers the savory to sweet. The Reese Peanut Butter Cup idea is way out my side idea fun to try and it is also in the wrong direction.

ETA: I have tried peanut butter on a burger and it was not bad, but supper sweet peanut buttery stuff with cholate is going to far.
