Burger King Introduces The 2,500 Calorie Pizza Burger | TheBlogIsMine Dot Com
For the discerning fastfood fan, it is a difficult question: pizza or burger? But a leading US burger chain has resolved the issue once and for all with the latest innovation.
Burger King is set to launch the Pizza Burger – a two-in-one dish that contains more than 2,500 calories and is four times the size of the chain’s Whoppers.
It is arranged like a pizza and placed on a nineand- a-half-inch sesame seed bun. Topped with pepperoni, mozzarella and Tuscan pesto and marinara sauce, it is even helpfully cut into six slices, so that the snack looks and feels like a pizza.
But gluttons beware: the Pizza Burger contains 144g of fat, 59g of which is saturated – the equivalent of 29 rashers of bacon. If that’s not enough to put you off, it contains 3,780 mg of salt – more than double the 1,600mg daily limit for adults.
To put the snack into context, it would take a four-hour jog to work it off and is equivalent to more than the entire daily calorie allowance for a man or a woman.
One of the chain’s oldf ashioned Whopper burgers seems almost healthy by comparison, delivering 670 calories and 40g of fat, 11g of which is saturated.
