(Southern California) Hello, January. So, we meet again. The parties are over and now it's back to the grind with the added bonus of peer pressure to "juice" and "cleanse." California based burger brand Slater's 50/50, beloved for their signature "50/50" patty made of 50% ground bacon and 50% ground beef, has decided enough is enough with the self-deprivation, instead opting to introduce the concept of 'Excesstasy' to pop culture's post-holiday vernacular with two special additions available through the month of January: The Excesstasy Burger and the Excesstasy Ice Cream Sandwich.
Excesstasy, n. Definition: The overwhelming excitement felt when indulging in the Slater's 50/50 experience.
The ultimate burger experience, The Excesstasy Burger features a 100% all natural beef patty on a bed of arugula and garlic tomato confit, plus a 100% ground BACON burger soaked in bone marrow butter separated by a white cheddar and bacon grilled cheese sandwich. Slater's has topped this beast with Southern Comfort drunken onions, a sunny side up duck egg, and a house made 1,000 Island aioli all on a brioche bun. Yep, you read that right. Two patties and a grilled cheese.
Double your Excesstasy with the Excesstasy Ice Cream Sandwich made with a fresh baked chocolate chip cookie below two scoops of vanilla ice cream, below a giant homemade peanut butter cup, below two scoops of chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream, below a fresh baked peanut butter sugar cookie. BOOM!
So, how's that five day juice cleanse tasting now?
Both The Excesstasy Burger and the Excesstasy Ice Cream Sandwich are available at all Slater's 50/50 locations through the end of January.
About Slater's 50/50
Slater’s 50/50® was founded in 2009 in Anaheim Hills, California by Scott Slater, a SoCal native with a passion for over the top comfort food and craft beer. Teaming up with Executive Chef Brad Lyons, they created the world’s first 50/50 patty– made of 50% ground bacon and 50% ground beef – and began to cultivate a niche centered on 'Excesstasy' (excess + ecstasy= the overwhelming excitement felt when indulging in the Slater's 50/50 experience), where guests need not make apologies for making the most of their completely customizable Slater's dining experience. In the past four years, subsequent locations have opened in San Diego, Huntington Beach, Pasadena, Lake Forest and Rancho Cucamonga, much to the delight of bacon, burger and craft beer worshipers everywhere. Since opening, Slater’s 50/50 has won numerous "Best Of" awards and is consistently featured in top tier media outlets including People.com, Food & Wine, Huffington Post, The Howard Stern Show and has also been featured on national television shows including the Travel Channel’s Bacon Paradise and Discovery Channel’s United States of Bacon.
