A Chicago burger joint known as Kuma's Corner has caused quite a stir with its communion wafer burger. The burger features a communion wafer and a red wine reduction sauce. The restaurant says that the burger was created to honor the Swedish metal band Ghost. Ghost is known for dressing up in religious outfits, thereby warranting the wafers and wine.

Wafers and red wine are more commonly associated with the Catholic practice of communion in which churchgoers eat a wafer and drink a small amount of red wine. Whether this association is merely coincidental is debatable. What isn't debatable is the fact that the communion wafer burger may well be the very first religious burger ever created. The burger itself sells for $17 and you can get as many wafers as you want or none at all. Stats for Religious Rite Burgers Trending: This Year & Warm
