With each changing season seems to come a new slew of foods with catastrophic calorie counts—you health-minded foodies out there know exactly what we’re talking about. And if you’ve ever been curious how bad these trendy eats actually are, you’re going to love our latest column: Worst Food in the World. In each installment, we find out just how villainous these nutritional nightmares really are. Taking center stage in today’s edition is a gluttonous burger creation that might truly make your heart stop: The Phillies’ Triple-Triple Cheeseburger.
It seems baseball teams across the country are doing everything in their power to ensure none of their fans will ever become fitter than their players! First the Arizona Diamondbacks’ came out with a 1,117-calorie Churro Dog, then the Minnesota Twins' announced their 759-calorie College Daze Bloody Mary, now, this! The nine-patty creation, topped with nine slices of cheese, tomato and lettuce, carries a whopping 2,200 calories, three days worth of fat and 61 grams of saturated fat—that’s the equivalent to 91 slices of Canadian bacon! Yuck.
If you can actually figure out how to fit this burger in your mouth, or get through eating it without having chest pains, we truly salute you. However, if you want to make it through baseball season without developing any cardiovascular or weight-related issues, we suggest you stay far away from the Triple-Triple! Believe it or not, if you indulged in just two of these burgers during the baseball season you’d add a pound and a quarter to your frame without even trying. Yikes! This high-stacked creation is a definite Not That!
