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.

Twinkie Time

November 8, 2013


We haven’t written about gross fast food items for quite some time now, but this atrocity piqued our interest.

PYT Restaurant in Philadelphia has introduced a burger that takes the cake. Twinkies, that is, and two of them to be exact.

Known for it’s innovative burgers, the restaurant serves up this one made of pork belly and beef, smothered in American cheese, covered with bacon, and wait for it…served between two deep-fried Twinkies, in lieu of a bun. It is joined on the menu by its predecessors, the spaghetti burger, and the deep fried lasagna bun burger.

With the fried Twinkies alone weighing in at 722 calories, this concoction is estimated to contain 1100 calories per sandwich. But hey, don’t sweat it; dessert is already included.
