DaBurger™-- a new pork burger-- makes its professional sports debut at Soldier Field this fall at Chicago Bears games. The half-pound pork burger will be served three different ways – all of which will feature another pork superstar—bacon.
DaBurger was developed with diehard Chicago sports fans in mind, says Erin Cleary, director of marketing and education for the Illinois Pork Producers Association.
“The Illinois Pork Producers are proud to bring you DaBurger, for those times when an ordinary burger just doesn’t cut it,” she adds. “Bears fans deserve a bigger, better burger. One named in your honor, one that respects your passion for pigskin and pork.”
The three options include:
- · The Pork BLT – pork burger with bacon, lettuce, tomato and dijonnaise
- · The Bacon Cheddar Delight – pork burger with bacon, cheddar, grilled onions and BBQ sauce
- · Pork 3-Ways – pork burger with pulled pork and bacon topped with cheddar and BBQ sauce
A specially made cart will keep DaBurgers hot and juicy and allow each DaBurger to be custom-assembled. DaBurger cart will be located at Section 427 on the upper level in Soldier Field, next to the ramp.
Upping the exposure further, llinois Pork Producers will grill and offer free samples of ground pork on the Southeast Lawn of Soldier Field, during the first four Bears home games.
“Let’s be completely honest. Between DaBurgers and the ground pork samples at the stadium, we’re trying to get more ground pork on your plate at home,” Cleary adds. “In the spirit of the Pork: Be Inspired campaign, we’re hoping inspired Bears fans will eat more pork.”
