Forming a human being inside you is hard work. Swollen feet, backache, and a growing baby constantly sitting on your bladder are just a few ingredients needed to grow said baby.
But don’t forget about those weird pregnancy cravings! From spicy food to pickles dipped in ice cream, there have been entire social media threads dedicated to the downright weird cravings women have while pregnant.
Burger King in Germany decided to give the people what they want! Well, for one day at least. To celebrate Mother’s Day this year, the fast-food franchise went all out and decided to make a special Whopper to satisfy those weird and wonderful pregnancy cravings for soon-to-be moms.
Thorough research was conducted into what pregnant women in Germany crave, with the franchise introducing… The Pregnancy Whopper.
So, just what is included? This limited edition sandwich was filled to the brim with cucumbers and jam, fish sticks and applesauce, curry sausage and fried herring, sausage and chocolate cream, and so much more.
Delicious or enough to leave you running to the bathroom?
Tweeps on Twitter decided to weigh in, as they do.
“This one looks like you asked a 6-year-old to combine all his favourite foods (sic),” one Twitter user wrote.
“The fact that it’s not fake scares me,” another wrote.
Burger King Germany is standing by their unique creation with marketing director Klaus Schmäing noting that “cravings are as real as pregnant women’s desire for special food combinations.”
“This brought us to the idea to turn the most popular pregnancy cravings into pregnancy Whopper sandwiches.
“As a result, combinations like cucumber with jam or sausage with chocolate cream have been created – and expectant moms have enthusiastically tried them,” said Schmäing.
Being a mom can be hard, maybe weird (or wonderful) combinations are enough to lift their spirits!
