My DH says yes. Personally I don't feel it is a weird request and I can't be the only one who wants a fecking burger filled with gherkins with a smarter of that onion thing they do.

He is refusing to even try. I am hormonal (peri-menopausal) and craving one.

He is going to procure a grubby snack for himself and asked me if there is anything I want. So I told him. AIBU

Yes. Gherkins are the devils food.

My sister always asks for extra gherkins on a cheeseburger. She's very specific and asks if she can have at least 25 slices of gherkin (a decent amount to her) and she doesn't mind paying extra.

They always fill it with gherkins, never charge her extra - they do hand it over whilst looking at her sideways though grin

No, I love gherkins

There was a whole advert where a bloke got a bun filled with gherkins for his pregnant wife, so I expect they're used to it!

Lilac- does she count them when she gets it?

Yanbu, my Dh would do it for me. All they can say is no, but I can't see why not.

YANBU AT ALL! They are amazing. I have my husbands off his to make 4 on mine, you can ask for extra pickles too. I bet if you went to 5 guys they would do you something like this

YANBU. I love gherkins.

OP, get yourself a jar of these beauties You'll thank me for it, I promise smile

Tell him about the advert. Bet he won't mind after that.

So no burger at all? Just gherkins? I think I'd need a burger in there...or your bun:content ratio would be crazy.

Billington just the photo in the link made me dribble a bit grin

I doubt he'd get one. I tried to get a bacon, sausage and egg mcmuffin in Macdonald's once - the menu features double bacon and egg, and double sausage and egg for the same price, so I wasn't going massively off-piste and I didn't see a problem: however, the manager said no can do. Because no button on the till.

Yabvu! All kinds of wrong. . There should be laws about that sort of thing!

Billington Tue 16-Feb-16 20:16:14

Oh god, they are delicious. I often scoff a handful when I happen to open the fridge door!!

ArmyDad Tue 16-Feb-16 20:17:22

I've asked for the gherkin to be removed from every burger that I've ever had. You can have all of mine. There's at least 20 years worth they've saved

jadorecakesnbiscuits Tue 16-Feb-16 20:17:39

Findo I think it's high time they got together and made that button so.

FindoGask Tue 16-Feb-16 20:21:38

jadorcakes damn straight!

LilacAndLovely Tue 16-Feb-16 20:21:59

Lilac- does she count them when she gets it?

Not that I know of!

She finds that if she just asks for 'extra' then someone will throw an extra three or so on and think that qualifies. She needs to make sure they know she's serious, and saying 'can I have around 25 gherkins' makes sure she gets the message across.

I asked for extra gherkins once and got zero gherkins. I think they heard gherkin and assumed the rest.

CreviceImp Tue 16-Feb-16 20:26:33

He is refusing.

I said it's simple just ask for the meat to be replaced with gherkins in a normal burger.

I swear he clenched.

I feel a marital is imminent.......

ALemonyPea Tue 16-Feb-16 20:29:32

Why did I never think to ask for extra gherkins. Love the slimey little suckers.

I think you should refuse to talk to him until he gets you what you've asked for.

You can get jars of sliced gherkins from tesco. They are perfectly sandwich sized slices, sliced lengthways. So I have gherkins on everything.
I love gherkins.
However, and this is embarrassing, I only discovered they are pickled cucumbers about a couple of years ago. Thought gherkins were a whole sub-species.

I love the gherkins and only buy the burgers that contain them.
