In-N-Out sells out Singapore in minutes

An In-N-Out pop-up shop in Singapore on Tuesday gave new meaning to the term "fast food" by selling out its inventory of 300 burgers in under 15 minutes.

Not to be confused with the Cali Burger fake-out in Shanghai, this one-day-event was the real deal happy-making meal.

The celebrated In-N-Out chain -- with locations in California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, and Texas -- says it has no immediate plans to permanently post up in Singapore. California's "first drive-thru hamburger stand" opened in 1948 in Baldwin Park.

Social media munchers helped to spread the word like a packet of, um, spread, while the restaurant's Facebook page gracefully fielded hungry and hostile hollerings from all the friends left out of the wristband action.
