Well, we weren't expecting this! Just in time for barbecue season and Father's Day this weekend, M&S has come up with what might be a complete show-stopper (or at least a serious talking point) at your next gathering.
It’s called the Daddy of all Burgers, and with good reason. It weighs in at a huge 1kg, which is more than eight quarter pounders' worth of burger. It comes pre-loaded with cheese sauce and pulled BBQ beef in the centre, and it's wrapped in streaky bacon rashers too.

British beef filled with BBQ pulled beef and melty cheese, wrapped in streaky bacon, our Daddy of All Burgers serves four and was made to share this Father's Day. Find it in store for £8.50 (plus our extra-large brioche bun for £1.50) and celebrate the daddy of all days with M&S Food.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the Daddy has been a massive success so far, with 3,000 burgers sold in the first week of launch. Wondering how you'd serve such a monster? Dish it up in bite-size pieces for a meaty canapé or team it with the - suitably sizeable - giant burger bun and divide as you wish (M&S suggests it serves four).
The burger is €10, while an accompanying giant burger bun comes in at €2.
