Presenting… the big breakfast that can kill you

This Hardee's burrito weighs in at almost 1,000 calories!Commit suicide for only PHP200 using this as your weapon of choice.

American fast food chain Hardee’s, which unabashed trots out calorie-stuffed products oozing with flavor for people who aren’t satisfied with their supersized selections, has unleashed the  Country Breakfast Burrito on hungry breakfast diners, and it looks to die for.

The Country Breakfast Burrito jampacks two egg omelets inside a flour tortilla. Not so bad? Well, the omelets are filled with cheddar chese, bacon, diced sausage and ham, hash browns and sausage gravy. That’s half a day’s calories, and your total recommended intake of saturated fat and salt. OMG.

Feel the coronary coming? Why shouldn’t you? The Country Breakfast Burrito registers all of 920 calories. It has 60 grams of fat. (That’s the same amount of fat in six bags of Jack N’ Jill Mister Chips.) According to the marketing manager of the St. Louis-based Hardee’s, which is also home to the Monster Thickburger (two 1/3-pound slabs of beef, four strips of bacon, three slices of cheese and mayonnaise on a buttered bun, 1,420 calories total) and Hardee’s Chicken Salad, which registers 83 grams of fat (how the heck can a salad be that fatty?!), it’s a portable big breakfast.

The Center for Science in the Public Interest calls it “food porn,” a “country breakfast bomb” that is “another lousy invention by a fast-food company,” not meant to be taken before 10AM.

Me drinking Fruitas fruit shake. It’s the only thing I’ll have before lunch. Haaaaay. Diet diet diet. Die die die.
