A Burger King in Finland Just Added a 15-Person Sauna

Have you ever wanted some fast food while you're relaxing at the sauna?

No? Well, too bad because a Burger King in Finland is giving you that option. The sauna, located at a Burger King in Helsinki, was announced a few months ago but just recently opened.

The restaurant has a laundry room, dressing room, a 48-inch TV and a Playstation 4. The location is also looking to add tablets so you can place your order from there, too.

The 15-person sauna recently earned the Finnish eatery an award.

Euromonitor International says, "The concept takes the idea of a unique dining experience to an extreme, offering both entertainment and functionality for Finnish consumers who see saunas as an integral part of their local culture."

Saunas are kind of a big deal in Finland where there's one for every three people.

And maybe someday you could also get your nails painted with KFC's new edible nail polish. Yep, that's a thing just in Hong Kong — for now.

Still, if chowing down on a Whopper at the sauna sounds like your kind of day, all you'll need is about $280 to book it for a whopping three hours.

How far back in history does the hamburger go?

The hamburger evolved from a long lineage of meat patty predecessors, going as far back as the times of Mongol emperor Genghis Khan. Khan’s horsemen would store flat patties made from meat scraps underneath their saddles, and after a day of battle the patty would be tenderized and ready to be eaten raw.

Who invented the hamburger?

There are competing claims for the creation the first hamburger, but the debate also lies in whether or not sandwiching a meat patty between two slices of toasted bread counts. The first hamburger on a bun could be attributed to Oscar Weber Bilby from Tulsa, Oklahoma, who served grilled Angus meat patties on homemade yeast buns at his Fourth of July cookout in the summer of 1891.

Another theory on the first hamburger

Others argue that serving hamburgers at a private party is like a tree falling in a forest with no one around to hear it.  For these historians, the story of the hamburger starts with the establishment of White Castle, the first hamburger chain, by Billy Ingram and short-order cook Walt Anderson in 1916.

Ingram developed a White Castle custom creation, a spatula made from saw-blade steel perfect for flattening patties, which is currently housed in a temperature-proof glass case at the Ohio State Historical Society.

How did McDonald’s start?

Brothers Dick and Mac McDonald originally ran a struggling movie theater, then opened a hot dog stand in Pasadena, California, called the Airdrome, moved operations to San Bernardino in 1940 to become a full-fledged restaurant that sold hot dogs, hamburgers and barbeque called McDonald’s Barbeque and finally reinvented the restaurant in 1948 to become the fast-food burger joint McDonald’s.

What's in a vegetarian burger?

The patty of a vegetarian hamburger usually contains a vegetable protein like soy, other vegetables especially legumes such as chickpeas and beans, grains, seeds, nuts and spices.

What makes a veggie patty taste so meaty? A more processed soy protein leads to a chewy, meat-like texture, and flavor agents like vegetable oil imitate the "mouthfeel" of beef fat.
