‘Meat Monster’ takes gluttony to a new dimension

Burger King's Meat Monster

Burger King's Meat Monster

You may not be aware, but a new stack of meat may come to a Burger King near you, and it comes in a monstrous proportion.

The “Meat Monster” is Burger King’s latest menu item, and while it is currently only available in Japan, there is speculation that it may soon come to the states.

There have been other fast food burgers that have sparked some attention like Wendys’ “The Baconator,” Burger King’s “Triple Whopper” or KFC’s “Double Down,” but this trumps any glutton-laden  sandwich to date.

So let’s review what we have here:

  • 2 beef patties
  • 1 grilled chicken breast
  • 3 slices of bacon
  • 3 slices of cheese
  • Teriyaki sauce
  • Egg patty (optional)
  • Lettuce
  • Tomatoes
  • Onion
  • Sesame seed bun
All of this wrapped into one 1160 calorie fast food burger, according to The Huffington Post.
I think it is safe to say that this is going too far. What happened to eating for the purpose of nutrition for our bodies?Anyone consuming this burger is ordering it for the shear enjoyment of “conquering” the challenge, which is far from what the purpose of eating should be.
