More Extreme Eating
Extreme eating has really taken off. First there was the Double Down from KFC and not to be left out of the fun, Friendly's has announced their new offering, the Grilled Cheese Burger Melt. What makes this melt so extreme? Try starting off with a not-so friendly burger patty. Then surround it with not one but TWO grilled cheese sandwiches. But that might get a little dry right? So why not add some mayo to that just to make sure it can slides down easy. Missing some veggies, well the friendly people at Friendly's decided to add a tomato slice and some lettuce. How nice of them! So what is the nutritional damage? Try 1500 calories (over half from fat), 97grams of fat (38g saturated), and 2090mg of sodium. Not a very friendly choice at all.
Just like I mentioned before here, we are amazed and disgusted by these new crazy foods, but we will still eat it. Right now someone is just hearing out about the Grilled Cheese Burger Melt and trying to figure out where the closest Friendly's is and how soon can he/she get there.
Where will it all stop? My guess is that it won't. Wait another month and there will be yet another announcement from some fast-food chain about their latest "extreme" meal. Stay tuned.
