Burger King Pizza Burger WHY???

15 12 2010

So I was happily trawling through the net earlier on today when I came across this…

The Burger King Burger Pizza

This 2,500 calorie behemoth has been available at the BK’s “Whopper Bar” in Times Square, New York City since September.

According to BK officials the Pizza Burger is the answer to the age old dilemma of whether to grab a pizza or a burger in order to sate your hunger.

Now I realise I’m not representative of the populace at large but…. a.) I have never asked that question & b.) That monstrosity would never be the answer!

For those who aren’t puking in disgust at the thought of this let me give you a quick run down of what makes a pizza burger…

 9 1/2 inch bun

4 x flame broiled whopper patties

Pepperoni slices

Marinara sauce

Mozzarella cheese

Tuscan pesto sauce

 Burger King have said that they have no plans to roll this out to any other restaurants across their chain and that it is an homage to NYC, now I’ve been to New York on several occasions and never was I put in mind of a gigantic burger topped in mushy crap.

With the pizza burger following on the heels of the equally repulsive Enormous Omelet Burger and the Triple whopper I wonder if at this point Burger King’s entire R&D budget isn’t being blown on trying to create the grossest most fattening sandwiches known to man?

 

 

 





Jamie’s Revolution

1 04 2010

I was chatting with friends last weekend and was told about a new show that Jamie Oliver is doing on ABC at the moment.

It’s called Jamie’s Revolution and it follows Jamie as he sets out to try and change the eating habits of Huntingdon, West Virginia which is officially the most unhealthy city in America, which is saying something.  The idea is similar to a couple Jamie’s previous campaign; Ministry of Food and Jamies School Dinners. Both of which were a big success.

The show isn’t airing in the UK as of yet but you can watch it online from ABC’s website.
