Marks & Spencer have sent food fans into a frenzy with the launch of what might be their best – and poshest – burger ever.
The high street store have busy been promoting the patties on their social media pages, explaining to their followers that their in-house chefs have spent a year ‘obsessively’ scouring the world in order to develop the special recipe, which is made with specially selected cuts of beef and features a hint of bone marrow for added flavour.

It’s British Beef Week which means there is no better time to try our Best Ever Burger. Our talented chefs spent a year obsessively developing it, crafting it from specially selected cuts of British beef, and adding a hint of bone marrow for that extra special flavour. #britishbeefweek
Their posts have certainly been doing the trick, with many burger lovers saying that they’re planning on rushing to stores to try the burgers for themselves.
‘Can’t wait to try this 😬…’ one shopper wrote, followed by another who added: ‘Look so good! Bone marrow makes the world a better place.’
Marks & Spencer’s Best Ever Burgers are available in store at £3.50 for a pack of two, and online, costing £14 for a pack of 8, making them a pricier – albeit more luxury – alternative to your usual supermarket offering.
At around 450 calories per patty (and that’s before you add the bun), they are also not the most slimline dinner option on the shelves – but those who have already savoured them say that the taste is worth it.
‘Made a special trip to M&S Eastgate yesterday for 2nd purchase,’ one customer who’d already managed to get their hands on a packet commented. ‘Will definitely be having them many more times this summer. A hit!’
‘We had the M&S best ever burgers on the bbq tonight,’ a second echoed. ‘Fantastic!!! They were lovely.’
Others even offered topping advice: ‘I have just had one for lunch with blue cheese melted on top,’ said one. ‘Absolutely perfect 👌’, while another satisfied customer applauded: ‘We have just cooked one of those burgers they were so tasty definitely buy them again well done M and S’.
