Want to woo Harold or Kumar?

White Castle has just the aphrodisiac: the fast-food burger chain is hawking burger-scented candles in honor of their self-proclaimed National Hamburger Month.

The mood-setter comes in a rectangular ceramic holder that resembles the cardboard box of the White Castle Slider sandwiches. They sell for $10 each, with net proceeds going to Autism Speaks.

A New York candle power-house helped create the flame-broiled scent. Laura Slatkin and her company, Nest Fragrances, typically design luxury bath products for the likes of Christian Dior and Vera Wang.

But this time, the Chelsea-based firm is helping out a like-minded fast-food company - both she and the heads of White Castle have kids with autism.

"I was thrilled to do it," said Slatkin, who also helped found the New York Center for Autism and the state's first public charter school for children with autism.

"The candle has a top note of diced sweet onions and crisp pickle, the middle notes are beef patty, cheese and ketchup, and bottom note is a warm burger bun. It all comes together to create this amazing aroma of a White Castle Slider."

The candles have been selling like, well, hotcakes, said a spokesman for the Columbus, Ohio-based company, immortalized in the hit movie "Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle."

"We thought we had a two- month supply for online sales, but they were gone in 48 hours," said Jamie Richardson, a vice president of corporate and government relations. He projects the company will raise more than $50,000 for the nonprofit.

New Yorkers were, however, skeptical about the idea of eau-de-burger.

"I wouldn't buy it because hamburgers smell too good," said Crystal Padin, 19, of East New York, Brooklyn as she ponied up for a four-pack of White Castle burgers in midtown. "I would be hungry all day."

2002 Cookoff Winner
For the meatballs:

10 White Castle® hamburgers
1 medium onion
2 pounds of ground beef
2 eggs
1 tsp. of salt
1/2 tsp. of ground pepper
1/2 tbsp. of onion powder

For the sauce:

2-10.75 oz cans Cream of Mushroom soup
5 packets of White Castle Dusseldorf Mustard
2 tbsp. of ketchup
1 tbsp. of Worcestershire sauce
Meatballs:
Chop onion in a food processor until fine. Sauté on medium heat until soft but not browned, about 5 minutes. Drain using a strainer. Chop all 10 burgers in a food processor until fine. In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground burgers and sautéed onion with the remaining meatball ingredients, mixing well with your hands. Let mixture set covered in refrigerator for 30 to 60 minutes. Spray baking dish or cookie sheet with a light coating of vegetable spray. Shape the meat mixture into balls by rolling a small amount into your hands until smooth. Meatballs should be slightly smaller than a golf ball. Bake meatballs in a 350-degree oven for 20 to 30 minutes, turning them over halfway through the cooking time. Meatballs should be browned on both sides. Remove the balls from the pan and strain with a colander.

Sauce:
Sauce may be prepared while meatballs are cooking. Combine all sauce ingredients in a saucepan and heat on stove at medium heat, until thoroughly heated. Pour over the cooked meatballs. Serve immediately, or refrigerate the sauce-covered meatballs overnight and heat the following day in a slow-cooker.

White Castle New York Style Calzone
1998 Cookoff Winner
10 White Castle hamburgers
3/4 cup green bell pepper, diced
1 cup pepperoni or salami, diced
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 can pizza dough
3/4 cup mozzarella cheese, grated

Sauté green bell pepper, pepperoni, garlic and olive oil in small pan on low heat for approximately 10 minutes. On a floured flat surface, form the pizza dough into a rectangular shape approximately 18 × 10-inch. Separate the burgers and onions from bun. Put aside top bun to be used later. Discard bottom bun and pickle. Crumble burgers with onions into small pieces and distribute evenly lengthwise across middle of pizza dough. Next distribute the sautéed green bell pepper, pepperoni and garlic over the burgers. Sprinkle the mozzarella and locateli cheese over the other ingredients. To form the calzone bread effect, fold bottom dough up over center and fold top of dough down over the center, slightly overlapping the bottom dough. Fold ends of dough over top about 1 inch. Slightly beat the egg yolks; then using a brush, spread over top of calzone as a glaze. Poke several small holes in top to let hot air escape. Transfer calzone to a large cookie sheet which has been lightly greased with olive oil and sprinkled with 2 tbsp. of corn meal. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes. Take 10 bun tops and place on cookie sheet with top of bun down and cover bottom of bun with olive oil and sprinkle with garlic powder. Put in oven along with calzone 5 minutes before you remove calzone.

White Castle was immortal long before Harold and Kumar came along and they'll remain immortal long after that movie is forgotten.

No kidding, she had to go to the hospital. They gave her vicodin(not sure why they would give her pain killers, especially when they may make some people nauseas) and something else don't recall the name of the prescription.

It's cheaper to just swallow a drop or two of red food coloring to get the vomit back to the color it ought to be.

I still remember that fateful day back in 2004 when I got off I-29 @ Armour Rd and found an empty lot where a White Castle once stood. :(
