The Fifth Third Burger (front) compared to a regular cheeseburger

holiday, I’m not going to play a trick on you, but I’m going to tell you about something only a fool would try.

Introducing the Fifth Third Burger.

What’s the Fifth Third Burger? It’s a burger that is served only at Fifth Third Ballpark in Grand Rapids, Michigan for the Western Michigan Whitecaps minor league baseball team. Here’s all the ingredients of the burger. A 1 pound bun, a cup of chili, 5 1/3 pound burgers, 5 slices of American cheese, salsa, nacho cheese, and Fritos chips. That’s not all, add in lettuce, tomato, and sour cream sauce and you have yourself a $20 burger that fits on a 12 inch pizza pan and weighs 4 pounds.

Now here’s the disgusting part. The burger consists of 4,800 calories, 300 grams of fat, 744 milligrams of cholesterol, and 10,000 milligrams of sodium.

No wonder America is so fat these days.
