ON THE CHART/CHARTBEAT: parity!
A stormy, slow, delivery-driven week brought with it a freakish display of parity that resulted in #1 and #10 on the BuildBoard Chart being separated by 5 total sales. All of a sudden our chart is starting to resemble Major League Baseball’s American League East! Into the void stutter-steps JANINEDM’S super-heavyweight, 715 calorie, Multigrain-Beef-Potato Chorizo Hash-Pancetta Bacon-Cheddar-Tomato-Chipotle Pepper-Guacamole Burger De La Hoya which grabs #1 for the first time, out-grossing last week’s (and the 3 before it) sales leader Angela1126’S Angela’s Veggie 2, with which it is tied in sales. RODGERSMG’S platinum-certified MGR Lamb Burger, still riding Rodgers’s personal appearance in the store two weeks ago, is this week’s greatest gainer, rising four places to #3 where it is tied in sales with JFAVUZZA’S fast-fading Better Turkey Burger. Wallowing at #5, where it is tied in sales and revenues with MSHEPPARD’S better blues burger, is PADROTE’S baked beans scooped summer stunner, (the) Summer BBQ Burger. AHARRIS’S all-time best-selling CaliBurger swoons two more places to #7, where it is tied with two new entries - GRABINOWITZ’S toothy, avocado Brioche-Turkey-Avocado & Chili Mango-Avocado-Swiss-Lettuce-Tomato-Basil Pesto-Mustard Lunch 2; and IAMTHEMATT’S super-carb, 652 calorie, Brioche-Beef-Mofongo-Fried Egg-Cheddar-Onion-Chipotle Pepper (government heath) Warning which trails by pennies. The 4foodie rumor-mill has it that IAMTHEMATT and MSHEPPARD is one and the same person seeking a free lunch - read next week’s newsletter for the results of our investigation. Awesome lamb burger surpreme, a complex Pumpernickel-Lamb-Avocado & Chili Mango-Pancetta Bacon-Bleu-Lettuce-Onion-Pickle-Tomato-Garlic Mayonnaise-Horseradish Cream-Ketchup new entry by the rookie GETTODOG81 is the 6th highest grossing burger on the chart by way of its $9.50 sticker and brings Pumpernickel back into the chart for the first time since April 29th, and helps push Lamb’s share (16.1%) above Veggie (14.3%) for the first time this year. Tied with ALBS at #10 (but a fistful of dollars short) is MSHEPPARD’S red white and bleu - sales of which benefit http://www.bradycampaign.org for the remainder of 2012.
