Mild- 2.5/5 Stars

          Imagine the most inoffensive fast food veggie burger possible, and that’s Burgerville’s Mild Anasazi Bean. The ingredients seem fresh and high quality, the bun is substantial, its not greasy, its not tiny, its a reasonable price, it tastes fine. Bland, but comforting. I mean, its a bean patty, you can hardly go wrong. But still as I chewed I longed for something more…and then I crunched down on a weird seed and my teeth scraped together, sending this burger’s rating down from a 2.5 to a 2 out of pure resentment. The spicy version is the same burger with chipotle mayo and pepperjack cheese, which tastes exactly like putting sriracha sauce on your instant ramen at 3am just to make yourself feel alive.

          The Burgerville website lists the mild version as 730 calories and the spicy version as 700 calories, but for some reason only gives the ingredients of the spicy version:

          “Anasazi Bean Patty: Anasazi bean patty (organic black rice, carrots, orca anasazi beans, onions, organic sweet red peppers, cold milled whole grain flax seed, whole grain brown rice flour, jalapeno peppers, pea protein, garlic, cumin, cilantro, oregano, sea salt); cooked in canola oil., Sesame Seed Bun: enriched unbleached wheat flour (contains malted barley flour, niacin, reduced iron, thiamin mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid), water, yeast, sugar, canola &/or soy oil, 2% or less: vital wheat gluten, salt, yeast nutrient (ammonium sulphate), dough conditioners (mono-diglycerides, sodium stearoyl lactylate, ascorbic acid, monocalcium phosphate), calcium sulfate, enzymes, calcium propionate (mold inhibitor), sesame seeds, Mayonnaise: soybean or canola oil, whole eggs, water, white vinegar, sugar, egg yolk, salt, spice, xanthan gum, guar gum, maltodextrin, propylene glycol alginate, lemon juice concentrate, calcium disodium EDTA (to protect flavor), Tomato Slice: tomatoes, Tillamook® Pepper Jack Cheese: cultured pasteurized milk, jalapeno peppers, salt, enzymes, Green Lettuce: lettuce”



But what’s in it?

          In summary: if you’re on a road trip with carnivores and you gotta stop for lunch somewhere, Burgerville isn’t a bad choice. The milkshakes are great.
