With the release of the new Foot-long Cheeseburger from Carl’s Jr., I thought it appropriate to take a tour of some of America’s greatest culinary achievements. Put on some sweat pants and enjoy:
The Foot-long Cheeseburger from Carl’s Jr.:
The fat stats: 850 calories & 20 grams of saturated fat. But it’s only $4.50 fully loaded!
The Double Down from KFC:
The fat stats: 540 calories & 32 grams of fat.
A tip of my hat to Stephen Colbert for making me aware of this gem. I love the idea of drinking a BBQ Chicken Sandwich, so instead of a mess on my fingers now, I’ll have some porcelain pyrotechnics later.
The fat stats: undisclosed
The Grilled Cheese BurgerMelt from Friendly’s:
It’s another bun-less innovation for those who do nothing but sit on their buns. Instead of a boring enriched flour hamburger bun, now you can have a burger with a grilled cheese sandwich on both sides. It’s like having three lunches all at the same time!
The fat stats: 1500 calories & 79 grams of fat (with 38g of saturated fat).
The Doughnut Burger from the Gateway Grizzlies:
It’s a bittersweet admission that I left St. Louis before dining on this unholy union between breakfast and dinner. A lot of people like breakfast for dinner, and if you check out the Gateway Grizzlies, you can get a bacon cheeseburger sandwiched between two halves of a Krispy Kreme doughnut.
The fat stats: 1,000 calories & 45 grams of fat. Amazing, but true, this is only $4.50, too!
The Fifth Third Burger from the West Michigan Whitecaps:
The fat stats: 4,889 calories & 199 grams of saturated fat.
