Jason Van Hoven of the International Business Times reports that to commemorate the 3D release of premiere of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace on February 8, 2012, French fastfood chain Quick has come up with burgers inspired by some of the characters from the iconic sci-fi series.

 

International Business Times cited the press release issued by Quick, which revealed the ingredients of the Star Wars burgers:

 

  • The Darth Vador Burger (inspired by Darth Vader) is composed of two minced beef patties topped with one slice of melted pepper Cheddar cheese, pepper sauce, endives and rings of red pepper all between black-colored buns sprinkled with black pepper and poppy seeds.
  • The Dark Burger (inspired by Darth Maul) is made up of two minced beef patties topped with two slices of melted pepper Cheddar cheese, pepper sauce, and endives all between red-colored buns sprinkled with black pepper and poppy seeds.
  • The Jedi Burger (inspired by the series’ "mystical warriors") has two minced beef patties topped with a slice of melted cheese, spicy mustard sauce and white mozzarella cheese cubes all between buns dusted with flour.

Van Hoven wrote: "Quick didn’t reveal exactly how the Dark Vador Burger’s bun was colored black, only saying it stemmed from a ’vegetable coloring agent.’ However, the Dark Burger’s red color stems from the natural coloring agents of paprika and beet root powder. The press release also states that while the Dark and Jedi burgers will be available from Jan. 31 to Mar. 1, the Dark Vador burger will be available for an even more limited time-March 2 to March 5."

 

Unfortunately, these burgers won’t make it to the Philippines. But, at least Quick’s creative promo  should serve as food for thought for other burger joints.  How about burgers inspired by The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo?
