Good news! Spice-burger saved, for now

Spice burgers back on the menu due to popular demand - Irish Times

After an extraordinary outpouring of support for Walsh Family Foods, the sole manufacturers of the product, it started making spice burgers again yesterday, just a fortnight after the Finglas-based firm closed with the loss of 50 jobs.
Its demise provoked a huge show of sympathy from disappointed fans after the news was revealed in The Irish Times last month. Newspapers and Facebook groups campaigned to “save our spice burger”, while internet forums were filled with nostalgic recollections of the product’s unique place in Irish food history.

Clearly you never miss something so much as when it's gone. I know I went straight to Sorrento's in Rathfarnham and purchased a spice-burger on hearing the sad news. It came with more free chips than I could eat, of course, since this is Sorrento's.
"Sorrento" (a.k.a. Lefto) also offers a spice-burger in a bun, but I think the plain one is actually nicer.
More testing will be required.
