Souderton Parks and Rec benefits from “Scorcher”


The Burger Shop at 162 N. Main St. in Souderton, has been testing a new spicy chicken sandwich which officially launched at the quick-serve restaurant on Aug. 1.
The sandwich, which is named “The Souderton Scorcher,” will be part of a fundraiser beginning on Thursday, Aug. 19 (National Hot and Spicy Food Day), which will see proceeds benefit the Souderton Borough Parks and Recreation through the end of September.
Giuseppe Chiaro, the owner of The Burger Shop, will donate a portion of the sales from the $8 sandwich, with different donations depending on the spice level customers order.
The mildest spice level features spicy paprika with a “A Little Kick,” with $1 being donated to the Parks and Rec. The second hottest level is “I Feel You,” which features a healthy dose of Sriracha and includes a $2 donation per sandwich sold. And the hottest level, called “Last Wish,” includes a Ghost Pepper Sauce, that will generate a $3 donation per sandwich sold from Aug. 20 through the end of September. On National Hot and Spicy Food Day on Aug. 19, all $8 from each “Last Wish” sold will be donated.

The sandwich is also available with just coleslaw and pickles, without any heat.
“We’re always looking for ways to give back to our community, and this was a fun little idea we came up with to see our guests sweat a little differently than they normally do when utilizing the amazing fields Souderton’s Parks and Recreation creates and maintains,” said Chiaro. “Hot chicken sandwiches are the rage right now, so it was an easy decision to add this to our menu. We hope to be able to make a difference while also feeding plenty of people our delicious new spicy creation.”
