Man Orders Burger With 1,050 Strips Of Bacon

We thought that the Wendy's Baconator was overkill with it's 6 strips of bacon, but it looks downright reasonable compared to the burger ordered by a Japanese Burger King patron. This gentleman ordered a hamburger with a mind-blowing 1,050 pieces of bacon. That's right, 1,050 pieces of salty, fatty, artery clogging deliciousness.

What's the damage done from 1,050 pieces of bacon? For starters, 14 pigs will have to donate their bellies to make that much bacon. As for the nutritional impact, 1,050 pieces of bacon has roughly 43,000 calories, 3,000 grams of fat and 197,000 milligrams of sodium. And don't forget that somewhere under all that bacon is a Burger King Hamburger, adding a few hundred more calories.

So how does this story end? Did the Japanese Burger King patron slay the thousand bacon strip beast before coronary heart disease could set in? Did he give up? Find out by watching the video.

Fish McBites: Are they healthy?

With Lent in full swing, millions of Americans are facing a serious problem: How will they ever replace those delicious McDonald's Chicken McBites with a meatless, Lent-friendly option? Never fear, McBite lovers, McDonald's has come to your rescue with a new offering: Fish McBites.

As you might guess, Fish McBites are small, bite-sized pieces of battered and fried fish. They come in three sizes and are also available in a Happy Meal. According to McDonald's, the fish used is the same Alaskan Pollack that's in the Filet-O-Fish. Why pick the McBites over the Filet-O-Fish? Well, choosing the McBites means no bun, American cheese or tartar sauce; three ingredients that contain a lot of calories, but provide little nutrition. Plus, Fish McBites are made to be dunked in a variety of tasty sauces, and science has proven that dunking food makes it better. Don't believe me? Try dunking an Oreo in milk. I rest my case.

This new menu addition has created a dilemma for McBite lovers; chicken or fish? Let's look at the nutrition facts and see which one will be the healthier choice!
