What The Kale?

McDonalds introduced a “health conscious” new addition to their menu; a kale salad.

The only problem? That “healthy” salad has more calories than a Big Mac!
Buyer beware. Just because it contains kale, it doesn’t mean it is good for you.

Mickey D’s newest addition is called “Keep Calm, Caesar On“, and contains a blend of romaine lettuce and kale. It all goes downhill from there, with the addition of bacon, crispy fried chicken, garlic focaccia croutons, and shaved Parmesan cheese. Add one serving of creamy Asiago Caesar dressing and you have a 730 calorie bomb, with 43 grams of fat, 115 mg. of cholesterol and over 1140 grams of sodium. Conversely, a Big Mac contains 540 calories, 28 grams of fat, 70 grams of cholesterol, and 950 grams of sodium. Hardly health food, but certainly better by comparison.

Our take on the situation?  Keep calm and move along, and say “Kale no!” to this one.

Cheesy Bacon Bomb

October 22, 2011


KFC has outdone itself again, with an artery clogging follow up to last year’s “Double Down“.

The new “Cheesy Bacon Bowl“ takes an entire meal, tosses it in a bowl, and adds bacon for a little something extra.

The new dish combines fried chicken, mashed potatoes, corn, gravy, cheese, and of course the requisite bacon.  This dietary abomination contains 680 calories, 31 grams of fat, and 2130 milligrams of sodium.

For only $3.99, this is one of the cheapest deals in town. It is easy to see how people can become obese, when one bunch of organic broccoli costs about the same price as this whole meal.

Tums not included.
