The Burger King Meat Monster Attacks Japan

Burger King Japan's Meat Monster
Watch out, Godzilla! Burger King Japan has just released the Meat Monster – a meaty explosion that’s sure to do some serious coronary damage. Burger King’s "Meat Monster" weighs in at a whopping 1,160 calories, making the McDonald’s Big Mac look like a Weight Watchers meal. But calories are calories. It’s the fat content that really grosses me out.

While the Burger King Japan press release didn’t include actual nutrition facts for the Meat Monster, The Consumerist did a great job putting their own estimates together, based on the ingredients found in the Burger King food served in the U.S. Check out the nutrition facts for this “burger king”:

1160 calories
24g of saturated fat
240mg of cholesterol
13g of sugar
54g carbs
69g of fat
1.5g of trans fat
2290mg sodium

Did you throw up a little in your mouth? I did after reading about this monster of fast food nastiness. And that doesn’t even include the extras that can be added to the Meat Monster (fried egg, pork, cheese, and Teriyaki sauce).

Earthquakes, a tsunami, nuclear disaster… Hasn’t Japan been put through enough??

  1. We're jealous of the Japanese because they aren't overweight so we send them this stuff? *rolling my eyes*
