Veggie Burger

Burgerville is a local restaurant here in the Northwest. It’s fast food but with a twist as it serves mostly local food products. It has a great employee benefit program. And it makes the best milkshakes on the planet. One of my favorite drive-thru meals has been composed of a Gardenburger, sweet potato fries, and a seasonal flavor milkshake (like egg nog).

Today Burgerville announced it will no longer be serving Gardenburger brand veggie burgers. Now you have to understand that Gardenburger was a local brand owned by Wholesome & Hearty Foods before it was bought out by Kellogg. Starting today the veggie burgers will be from Chez Gourmet from Marie, a local company owned and operated by a Lake Oswego entrepreneur. The new pattie is made from anasazi beans and will sell for $4.19 as compared to the former Gardenburger at $3.99.

I can’t wait to try it.

Thanks for filling in the gaps. My Costco has not had Gardenburgers for quite a few years now, though they were still avlb in other places. Given your information, I'm hopeful Coscto may regroup and now offer us Marie's...Yes!
