Blue Apron Is Bringing Bob’s Burgers to Your Kitchen
You may not actually be able to go to Bob’s Burgers to taste one of Bob Belcher’s signature burgers of the day, but thanks to Blue Apron you can make them in your kitchen this summer. The meal kit company is teaming up with 20th Century Fox and Eggslut chef Alvin Cailan for three burger recipes straight from the kitchen of the animated hit.
According to a press release, three burgers will be included in meal kits throughout the next three months. The “Quantum of Salsa Burger” and the “Gouda Wife Burger” were featured on the chalkboard on the Fox show during season eight and will be sent to Blue Apron customers during the weeks of July 23 and August 20, respectively. The third burger, “The Absentee Shallot Burger,” is set to be featured in a season nine episode and will go out to customers the week of September 17, shortly before the episode airs.
While this is certainly an exciting opportunity for fans of Bob’s Burgers and burgers in general, this isn’t the first time the food from the show has been brought to life. In 2016, The Bob’s Burgers Burger Book was released, featuring 75 recipes from the show. Cailan has also presented Bob Burger’s-themed pop-up restaurants in New York and Los Angeles.
“Until now, my recipe creations were only accessible where my restaurants are located in Los Angeles or New York,” Cailan said in a statement. “I am thrilled to partner with Blue Apron and Bob’s Burgers to bring three of my original burger recipes to homes across the country this summer!”
This isn’t the first pop culture partnership for Blue Apron. The meal kit delivery service has previously partnered with Chrissy Teigen and Masterchef Junior for special boxes. But this latest collaboration just emphasizes why Bob’s Burgers is one of the TV restaurants we wish we real.
