We’ve held on to the private registration FAT 1 for quite a while – it’s a great number plate with a chunky price tag. Whoever buys it from us will have to demonstrate that they can fill some very big shoes before we give it up. To that end, we thought we’d put together a little guide of some of the most heart-popping, belt-tightening meals available, anywhere.
The Vermonster – Ben & Jerrys, Worldwide
Drop in to any Ben & Jerry’s store in America and you can order this frozen behemoth – 20 scoops of Ben & Jerry, with the gaps filled with chocolate topping, frozen banana, nuts and any number of sprinkles, served in an enormous bucket. This icy bad boy tops out at a whopping 14,000 calories and 500 grams of fat – we don’t even want to think about how much sugar it contains.
Ye Old 96er – Denny’s Beer Barrel Pub, Clearfield, Pennsylvania
If you can finish this truly monstrous hamburger in three hours you’ll have it paid for, plus you’ll receive a certificate and a t-shirt. Be warned, however, you be chowing down through six pounds of beef, half a head of lettuce, twelve slices of cheese, enough sauce to drown a small mammal and two buns you could use as a pillow. We don’t have a calorie count for this one, but we can assure you, it wouldn’t be pretty.
The Never Ending Pasta Pass – Olive Garden, Worldwide
While this isn’t a specific dish, per se, it is a recipe for having to buy a new pair of pants. Retailing at $100USD and available only for a few hours online each year, the Never Ending Pasta Pass allows the bearer bottomless bowls, breadsticks and salad at any Olive Garden worldwide. One poor reporter clocked up over 6,000 calories during her assignment to eat as much as she could – she said she could have eaten more breadsticks, however!
The 150oz Steak – Duck Inn, Redditch, Worcestershire
A little closer to home, those brave enough to try can sit down to an 150 ounce steak, served with a mountain of chips and onion rings at this quaint Worcestershire pub – the meat alone weighing about the same as a newborn baby. If you can scoff the lot in under an hour, you can have this for free – otherwise, it’s £110.
Reckon you could polish any of these off? Are you worthy of the title ‘FAT 1’? Let us know in the blog comments or on our social media. There’s no prize, I’m afraid. We’re pretty sure this stuff isn’t part of any recommended, healthy, balanced diet, so it’d be irresponsible to encourage people to indulge!
