I usually prefer to make my burgers at home to fashion them around my tastes; however, my local paper recently highlighted a commercial "American-style" Kobe burger from Snake River Farms that supposedly can be found at Trader Joe's. Excerpt from the article and link to SRF's website are below.
1) Has anyone tried this burger and, if so, is it worth the whopping calories and fat?
2) Has anyone seen these at TJ's in your area? I haven't had a chance to go searching at my TJ's yet.
I'm not sure if even I could justify ingesting that much fat in 8 oz., but I'm certainly curious. Thanks for any info!

Snake River Farms
Kobe Beef Gourmet
$5.99 for 1 pound (2 8-ounce patties)
Too good for ketchup. Too good for a bun. Just use a knife and fork and savor every bite. After you've had one of these tender and deeply flavorful burger patties, you won't want to go back to basic burgers. But you probably should. At 750 calories and 67 fat grams per half-pound patty, think of them as a special-occasion food. The Idaho-based company crosses Japanese Wagyu and American Black Angus cattle for the high level of marbling (intramuscular fat) responsible for the incredible flavor and texture. Available at Trader Joe's.
