— Whataburger fans can soon immortalize their love for the chain with a new charm from Texas jeweler James Avery. The new charm is, of course, shaped like a Whataburger cup fashioned out of sterling silver, then hand-painted with orange enamel for a look that’s pretty darn close to the original. The charm is currently on sale for $82 via Whataburger’s website. [EaterWire]
