~ Matthew McConaughey
“Life is too short to miss out on the beautiful things, like a double cheeseburger.”
~ Channing Tatum
Easily the two best comments in the history of mankind, a proper lauding of the combination of perfectly seasoned hamburger topped with rich and creamy cheese. Of course, if there’s one thing that we’ve learned it’s that there’s no such thing as too much of a good thing. That’s why Double Cheeseburger Day exists! Because some bright spark decided that the only thing better than a cheeseburger is a double cheeseburger! If you ever needed an excuse to enjoy one (and we know you didn’t) this is it!
History of Double Cheeseburger Day
Double Cheeseburger Day was made to celebrate the birth of the double cheeseburger, and by extension the cheeseburger itself. While it may seem the most natural thing in the world to add cheese to a hamburger these days, originally a hamburger was a very simple affair. Hamburger, bread, and condiments were pretty much all that a hamburger had going for it. The first person said to have created the cheeseburger was Lionel Sternberger while working at his fathers sandwich shop. A sizzling piece of hamburger seemed to be just begging for something a little extra, and so a piece of cheese was added to see what came out.
What came out, obviously, was magic. It wasn’t long before someone realized that a single sizzling patty of hamburger topped with melting cheese wasn’t the best thing in life, not when you could have two sizzling patties of hamburger topped with melting cheese! The birth of the double cheeseburger was as inevitable as the cheeseburger itself, and Double Cheeseburger Day celebrates it all!
