Burger King NY Pizza Burger

Standard

Burger King is about to debut a New York Pizza Burger, which contains: four quarter-pound patties topped with pepperoni and mozzarella and smothered in marinara sauce — all on a sesame seed bun that spans nine-and-a-half inches.   If you think about it, that’s like four Whoppers plus pizza toppings, all in one burger.   (If you plan to eat one by yourself, you should stop reading now.)  It adds up to 2,530 calories, 144 grams of fat (59 grams saturated) and 380 mg of cholesterol.  (For reference, a Whopper is comparatively healthy, delivering 670 calories, 40 grams of fat (11 saturated), and 75 mg of cholesterol.)  You probably know that those first statistics are extremely unhealthy, but to put them in context, nutritional guidelines say most people should consume no more than 2,500 calories, 65 grams of total fat, 20 grams of saturated fat, and 300 mg of cholesterol in an entire day.

One website called it a “fat bomb”.   That could be a valid description.  Another way to look at it is that you’re getting your whole day’s worth of food in one burger.  🙂

  1. this burger should be illegal. Obesity is already an epidemic in this country. since the people aren’t able to help themselves, for they know not what they do or eat, we should regulate the fast food industry.

    It has gone on too far! Nationalization of fast food should be a priority in the next election cycle. We will do for the people what the fat-mongers will not do. and that is make their lives better.

    Most people eat fast food. fast food leads to heart disease. and heart disease is a contributor to rising healthcare costs that lead to our soaring deficit.

    If everyone was responsible with their eating habits then we wouldn’t have to resort to such drastic measures to conquer obesity in America.

    It is not our fault. But we are the solution.

    Vote Democrat this november!

    • You’re totally right! While we’re at it, we should outlaw TV and couches, people are getting fat from sitting down too much, and they can’t help themselves. And since we’re already going to be regulating restaurants, let’s go ahead and set up a national menu for everyone. I vote for Taco Tuesdays!

  2. I like what the first commenter at that link said about it:

    “The health food fascists will choke on their arugula when they hear about this.”

    Well said…

  3. Burger good. Help economy much. Make soldiers super fat so Taliban bullets will bounce off. Give more hitpoints to soldiers! SUPER GOOD
