We’ve all heard the millions of old wive's tales that promise to bring on labour - from spicy food to pineapple to castor oil. Ewwww!
Well now someone’s come up with a BURGER that promises to induce your delivery, and it sounds delicious.
‘The Labor Inducer’ includes certified Angus beef, honey cured bacon, American, Cajun remoulade, peach caramelized onion, and Bavarian mustard.
The creation of The Suburban cafe in the US state of Minnesota, the burger earned its name after the owner of the eatery went into labour just hours after eating it.
Says The Suburban: ‘The story behind the name: Owner Kelsey went into labor 8 days early, just 7 hrs after taste testing this burger! The Burger Battle was mom and dad’s first date night where we took home 3rd Place! Introducing our little good luck charm Sam!’
Since then, heavily pregnant women have flocked to the restaurant to see if the baby burger works for them - and one mum struck gold! American mum Katy Engler gave birth to her daughter Elise after trying the burger.
Says The Suburban: 'Just last week Zac and Katy Engler came in and let us know that in a last ditch effort on her due date, Katy tried the burger and what do you know? She went into labor with beautiful Elise (pictured right) at midnight that night! Sam and Elise are hopefully the first of many more “Suburban Tots” when we add the burger to our permanent menu (coming soon)!
Mum Katy said that she knew it would be the secret to her going into labour.
“I have to get this now. I have to. If I don’t, it's like me telling the universe I don't need your help and I did,” she told WCCO.
