Just like the book-turned-movie, it feels a bit naughty to be chowing down on so many layers of bacon.

We still have one month to go until the much-anticipated release of the 50 Shades of Grey movie, but here’s one way that you can celebrate: this 15 Shades of Bacon burger. The burger, in homage to the wildly popular book-turned-movie, has been added to the menu at The Custom House, a pub in Barnstaple, North Devon.

This 2,500-calorie burger will definitely whip your taste buds into submission with the 15 varieties of bacon between two buns: chicken-fried bacon, unsmoked and smoked streaky and back bacon, Italian
mortadella, bacon cream cheese, bacon mayonnaise, and bacon-dusted fries, turkey bacon, prosciutto, pancetta, and a sausage patty.

The burger costs £15 ($22.75 USD), and is clearly not for the faint of heart. But if you’re up to the challenge, one-third of the money from each 15 Shades of Bacon purchase will go toward North Devon Hospice, in memory of pub owner Matt Spencer’s mother, who stayed there last year.

“I am a bacon fiend,” he told The Daily Mail. “I made roses out of bacon for Valentine's Day last year and handed them to customers. They went down really well.”
