Why Denny's? WHY?!
If you thought eating a fried stick of butter at the Iowa State Fair was a heart attack waiting to happen, don't go NEAR this sandwich! Seriously, we bet even the scent has calories.
Denny's Mac N' Cheese Big Daddy Patty Melt has 1690 calories and 99 grams of fat, of which 36 fat grams are saturated.
To give you an idea of just how disgusting that is, the sandwich has twice as many calories as a stick of butter, plus eight more grams of fat! More importantly, it's nearly an entire DAY'S WORTH of calories!
The item off of Denny's new "Let's Get Cheesy" menu is described as "a hand-pressed beef patty topped with new creamy Mac 'n Cheese, melted cheddar cheese and zesty Frisco sauce on grilled potato bread."
It doesn't sound all that bad until you find out how many calories are in it, which makes us happy the FDA is requiring restaurants to display calorie counts nationwide. Hopefully customers will at least be aware of the caloric overload before ordering the Big Daddy Patty Melt.
We love a good burger every once in a while, but don't think Denny's newest creation is worth dying for!
