I finally succumbed to the Angry Whopper yesterday.
It's all Catherine's fault, really. I was vaguely amused by the commercials but not all that tempted--until I read her article, that is.
This mega-sandwich (I had the single burger--I cannot imagine anyone being able to consume the triple)--is a hamburger patty topped with pepper jack cheese, bacon, lettuce, tomato, jalapeños, mayo and spicy "Angry Sauce."
It was pleasantly spicy, and very filling. There was a lot going on, though. I didn't even notice there was cheese--I only read about it afterward. The mayo, angry sauce and various bits plopped out and slid down my wrists. Normally I'd count this as a good thing, but this time the dripping innards made it difficult to snarf this unruly beast.
Even so, I liked it.
You can expect horrific nutritional value in such a monster. Behold:
The single angry whopper has 880 calories, 55g of fat (of which 18g are from saturated fat and 2g are trans fat), 110mg cholesterol, a whopping (pun intended) 1670mg sodium, 59g carbohydrates (3g dietary fiber and 13g of sugar--where in the world they put sugar I'll never know) and 37g protein. It's not as bad as my long-lost beloved Thickburger, but close enough.
It's a good thing we walked, huh?
I can't say that I'll eat it again anytime soon, though. Perhaps if they offered the same sandwich in their Junior version I'd go for it--this was just too much.
