A hamburger is among the most quintessential American food items. Anyhow, there are many other forms of burgers that Americans love to eat. Is a burger healthy? Maybe not. What about tasty? Absolutely yes, notwithstanding that the flavor of the product may vary by restaurant. Read on for a few fun facts regarding burgers.

There is a misconception that all veggie burgers are suitable for vegan people. All vegan burgers can be described with the prefix ‘vegetable’, but it is not possible to say the same vice versa. Why?

Also known as National Hamburger Month, it is a period where people in the US celebrate arguably the best-known fast-food item in the nation.

What is more interesting than it is that even the National Burger Day falls in the same calendar month: May.
