Where’s The Beef?

Next up on the apparent assault on our health and our waistlines, is Burger King’s new Pizza Burger. Debuting next month at the New York flagship Whopper Bar, this sandwich boasts 2520 calories, 3780 mgs. of salt, and 144 grams of fat.

Currently only available in New York (lucky us!) this  $13 concoction consists of 4 whopper sized burgers on a 9 ½ “ diameter bun. It is smothered in pepperoni, mozzarella and marinara sauce, and sliced into 6 wedges like a pizza.

Sound gross?

Not as gross as the sandwich recently introduced by the West Michigan Whitecaps, a minor league baseball team.

The Fifth Third Burger, made of over 2 pounds of beef, comes with chili and Fritos among other fixings and contains 4889 calories!

Think this one takes the cake? Not so fast…. Far and away, the winner of this pig out and gross out contest is the Craz –E – Burger, brought to you by Krispy Kreme.

Although it is only a mere 1500 calories per serving, this bacon cheeseburger sits in a buttered Krispy Crème donut!

Although this particular version is popularized by Food Network star Paula Deen (whose recipes generally begin with “you take a stick of buttah”); many others take credit for inventing the donut burger. Another sports team, the Gateway Grizzlies serve it at their ballpark and take the extra step of deep-frying it!!

Moving ahead, the Grizzlies now offer a burger, smothered in salsa, sour cream, chili and Fritos, which packs 4889 calories, and costs $20, cardiologist visit not included.

What’s next you ask? I am saving the very best one for another post!
