Do you reach for a beer to go with your burger, or do you prefer soda or a shake? Maybe you'd rather have something more unusual, like a hot cup of coffee? Let us know your drink of choice when you're eating a burger in this week's poll. FYI: you can choose up to three beverages to cover different scenarios (fast food drive-thru, sit-down restaurant, and homemade burgers, for instance).

Results of Last Week's Poll

Last week, we asked about your feelings about the "American-Style Pizza-Burger" from Freshness Burger, a Japanese burger chain. The predominant emotion was confusion (42 percent of respondents). Nausea wasn't far behind with 24 percent of the vote, followed by curiosity (14 percent), sadness (13 percent), and anger (4 percent). Only 5 percent of respondents said the burger made them hungry. Here is what a few of you had to say on the subject:

When I hear the term 'pizza burger,' I expect marinara sauce and provolone on my burger, with maybe some mushrooms or pepperoncini or even actual pepperoni. Clearly, my expectations are inadequate to the splendor that is Japanese fast food. I note on their website that the featured 'cream soda' is green.


I selected confused...Where are the hot dogs and shrimp, this being a Japanese interpretation of an American version of a pseudo-Italian food product?


The idea of a pizza burger is exciting, but I am utterly confused as to how that combination in any way resembles pizza. Considering the misleading name and the fact that the picture looks a little like someone threw up on the burger, this product doesn't really appeal to me.
