ST. LOUIS (AP) – As many fast-food chains are catering to the health-conscious, Hardee’s is introducing the biggest and thickest of its Thickburgers – one with enough calories to make Ronald McDonald blush.
The Monster Thickburger has 1,420 calories and 107 grams of fat.
The chain on Monday rolled out its Monster Thickburger – two 1/3-pound slabs of Angus beef, four strips of bacon, three slices of cheese and mayonnaise on a buttered sesame seed bun. The sandwich alone sells for $5.49, $7.09 with fries and a soda.
Even a news release touted the Monster – at 1,420 calories and 107 grams of fat – as “a monument to decadence.” Add fries and a soda and a single meal would involve more calories and fat than most people should get in a day.
