It seems like every burger chain is obsessed with cramming as much food between two buns as humanly possible.
Regular orange squares of American cheese simply won’t cut it in the Land of the Rising Sun. Instead, BK aficionados can dip their burgers, onion rings, and fries directly into a big pot of melty cheese. But be advised that dipping your Whopper comes at a price: adding one cup of fondue will bring your calorie count up to about 782.
This three-patty sub sandwich is probably meant to be split among friends; however, if you’re the type of eater who likes a challenge, go for it! But beware: the jalapeños and fiery chili cheese sauce (not to mention the 808 calories) might make this burger better eaten in small doses.
Maybe it’s a stretch calling this a burger, since there’s technically no bun, but the Whopper poutine has everything else a good burger needs — beef patty, pickles, onions, mustard, and ketchup — with the addition of cheese curds, gravy, and fries. Oh, and the Whopper poutine packs about 880 calories, in case you were worrying that the lack of bun made it diet food.
There’s even more fast food madness going on in this Korean DoubleDown sandwich than its American cousin. Whereas the American DoubleDown only has bacon and cheese sandwiched between two fried chicken patties, the Zinger DoubleDown King adds a beef patty and barbeque sauce to the mix. The “sandwich” is about 750 calories.
What goes better with two beef patties than a couple of strips of bacon? How about a big scoop of mash? At McDonalds in China, mashed potatoes are a condiment on this giant burger.
Can’t decide between sausage or a burger? The Swiss can get both. On this burger, pork sausage rests on top of a burger patty, and the whole meaty mess is nestled atop of rösti, the Swiss version of hash browns.
The addition of an egg McMuffin to a Double Big Mac might come as a welcome brunch option for those who can never decide whether to go to Mickey D’s at 10:25 or wait for the lunchtime change-out at 10:30. Combining the sandwiches comes at a price though. The triple-duty burger contains well north of 1,000 calories.
