Hungry Jack's Ultimate Double Whopper burger has been rated as the unhealthiest fast food option in Australia. In order to provide better information to people regarding fast foods; the consumer organization Choice sampled menus from Hungry Jacks, McDonalds, Pizza Hut, Subway, Dominos, KFC, Red Rooster and Oporto.
With 80.5 grams of fat, 2.3 grams of sodium and 5085 kilojoules, the Ultimate Double Whopper burger accounts for nearly 60% of an adult's recommended daily calorie intake. Choice spokeswoman Ingrid Just said, "When you add chips and a soft drink to something like the Ultimate Double Whopper, you're consuming a day's worth of kilojoules in one meal."
