The Quad Stacker

Quote:
Consider this summer's debut of Burger King's BK Stackers, which include a Quad Stacker option of four slabs of beef, four slices of cheese and up to eight slices of bacon -- "smothered," as the company puts it, in a creamy sauce.


1000 calories
68 grams of fat
30 grams of saturated fat (bywhere a person can actually hear their own arteries hardening...urk!)

Nicknames for this burger include "Coronary on a Bun", "Quadrupule Bypass Special", and "The Defibrilator."

Do you want fries with that?
Will you walk into my parlour? said the Spider to the Fly,
Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy;
The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,
And I've a many curious things to show when you are there.

Oh no, no, said the little Fly, to ask me is in vain,
For who goes up your winding stair
-can ne'er come down again.

Can they offer a healthier alternative? Maybe they can train the counterman to ask "Wouldn't you rather just shove a pig wrapped in butter down your throat?"

Copy and paste the whole link. It is separated by commas, but don't let that fool you. Copy the whole dang thing. The last letter of the link is "k".

I guess they just wanted to out-do Wendy's for worst health risk in a burger!

A couple of the more notable quotes:

"But Burger King isn't alone in fattening up its fare. In fact, there are worse burgers out there -- notably Hardee's 1,420-calorie Monster Thickburger, which has 107 grams of fat.

"Nor is the nutritional affront limited to burgers. Subway's 12-inch Double-Meat Classic Tuna Sub packs 1,580 calories and 110 grams of fat, Denny's Extreme Grand Slam Breakfast has 1,270 calories and 77 grams of fat, and Blimpie's BLT has 1,180 calories and 64 grams of fat.

"But some marketing experts say calorie counts won't matter. A lot of customers just may not care.

"...sales figures show that the more egregious the nutrition, the better the food sells. When Hardee's added its 715-calorie Hand-Scooped Ice Cream Shake, for instance, its shake sales doubled. On the other hand, Wendy's fresh fruit bowl proved to be a flop.

Fascinating stuff.

Well, this must be the new diet food. You eat it, and it fills you up,
but it is so greasy you end up vomiting it all out.

oooohhh! I want one!

Actually, Consumer's Digest had a chart of burgers by fat content a few years ago. For comperable burgers, Wendy's led the pack for saturated fat!

Keep in mind...1500 calories equates to One Pound. Either an extra unwanted pound or just a pound added to the frame. Doesn't matter a wit where those 1500 calories come from...carbs...Fat...Protien...whatever, it's a pound. If you can handle the pound have at it.

In the past two and a half months I have dropped a total of 31 pounds. Needless to say I won't be to Hardee's anytime soon but as soon as February comes around and I'm at my ideal weight goal...I just my pay a visit to celebrate and for nostalgia sake. Smile

They should deep fry that burger and dip it in chocolate, then give it a nickname like, "Kamikaze Burger".
