US still inventing burgers to kill consumers in a single bite

4 August 2010

The British have yet to take a single bite from the awesomeness that is the KFC Double Down, and already it's been knocked from it's lard-smothered throne in the US. It took the genius of a fast-food chain called Friendly's, one of the many that's rarely heard of outside the country, to create a sandwich that nearly triples the calorie count of the Double Down. Ladies and gentlemen, Bitterwallet presents to you - the Grilled Cheeseburger Melt:

The Grilled Cheeseburger Melt will kick you in the gut with no less than 1,500 calories, including 97 grams of fat and 2,090 milligrams of salt. But attempting to kill you even quicker is another minor-league fast food chain Carl's, who are about to trial... the foot long cheeseburger:

Compared to Friendly's offering, however, it's a healthy alternative that only packs in 850 calories and 20 grams of saturated fat. Practically a salad, then. As avid Bitterwallet reader Harry told us: a hard artery is a strong artery.

    "The UGCB isn’t close to being the most high-calorie item on Friendly’s menu. That would be the 1,710-calorie Clamboat Basket, with 102 grams of fat and 3,070 milligrams of sodium." Also, it isn't 2g of salt - sodiumx2.542=salt, giving you 5gram (5084mg) of salt. That is the recommended adult daily intake in one meal. That "clamboat basket" is almost 8gram of salt in one meal, and can be a fatal amount. Cheeky cunts at "carls", using the saturated fat content rather than total fat - if it has 20g of saturated fat, the total fat content is likely to be even higher than the "friendly" melt.

    If, compared to Friendly's, it's a healthy alternative, then they can't be attempting to kill you quicker, surely?
