Time To Double Down HARD!
As you know, I LOVE to find the wackiest food on the planet, and this may be one of my favorites, but boy is it controversial! The Hungry Horse pub chain in England is causing a “burger brouhaha” with their wacky “double doughnut burger”! Here is why:
Pub chain Hungry Horse, which is owned by Bury St Edmunds brewer Greene King, has been criticised for creating a burger which contains almost 2,000 calories.
The ‘Double Donut Burger’ consists of 1,996 calories (98% of a woman’s recommended daily calorie intake) it also packs in 53g of saturated fat and 8.2g of salt.
Hungry Horse Bites Back!
The owners of Hungry Horse have responded to the criticism, and in fact, they proudly stand behind their 2,000 burger!
This is their promotional photo, proudly showcasing their burger:
They also released a statement defending the burger:
“Our popular menu caters for a variety of tastes and appetites and includes everything from lower calorie options such as our hot chicken and bacon salad at 393 calories, through to the indulgent occasional treat such as our new Double Donut Burger.
All the nutritional information for our menu is available on our website and in our pubs, so that our customers are able to make informed decisions about what they choose to eat.
– STEVE JEBSON, HUNGRY HORSE”
You can decide for yourself if this double doughnut burger is a culinary crime or not. Thanks to ITV.com for the original story.
