Default Double Pounder Mac attack

Quote:



MONSTER-SIZED McDonald's hamburgers stuffed with up to eight meat patties and nine slices of cheese have been slammed as "a heart attack waiting to happen".

Some of the fast-food chains sell super-sized Quarter Pounders, which contain about 220g of fat and 11,500kJ each, on request.

The "double pounder" is the equivalent of more than three days' worth of fat for a grown man - or almost five Pizza Hut deep-pan Hawaiian pizzas or 45 Tim Tams.

At about $18, it is not listed on the menu, nor under nutritional information.

It has developed a cult following as a challenge for teenagers, after a video was posted online of a 17-year-old boy ploughing his way through the burger at a McDonald's restaurant.

Rival chain Hungry Jacks is also allowing customers to order mega-burgers under its Have It Your Way ordering system.

Nutrition Australia senior nutritionist Aloysa Hourigan described the double pounder as "obscene" and a "heart attack waiting to happen".
That, is going overboard?

As a one off treat it would not do too much harm. And I do not think that many people would eat that on a daily basis. Since it is not on the menu they are not really promoting it. I think the reaction is a bit over the top.

That looks delicious but I would be stuffed, and have to go and lay down...for the rest of the day. Maybe the next day, too!

Personally, just looking at the photo makes my gut clench up.

But how is that any different from people ordering multiple burgers for a meal? Aside from not having the extra buns, it's not really different, is it? People are going to eat as much or as little as they want, regardless of how they have to order it. In other words, if you usually eat a two patty burger, having the new option of an eight patty burger is not going to make you order one. But if you order three or four two patty burgers, then you're already eating that much food so you'd just be skipping the extra buns and still getting what you want and you'd think it was a good idea and go for it.

I'm afraid to look at that...I mean, how would you eat it without it falling apart in your hands.

As a serious burger lover, I'm curious to try it once, though.
