 US Caterers Dare Baseball Fans To Eat Artery-Busting  Monster  Burger  That  Packs  In  4,800  Calories
Caterers at a baseball stadium in Michigan, USA, have introduced an artery-busting hamburger containing 4800 calories - more than twice the recommended daily amount.

The Fifth Third baseball park in Michigan, home to the West Michigan Whitecaps, is daring fans to eat the 'snack', promising a free T-shirt to anyone who succeeds.

The Fifth Third Burger, named after the park, contains five beef patties, five slices of cheese, fries, chilli, salsa, sour cream and a bun made from a pound of dough.

However, health concerns haven't been completely ignored - the monster meal is topped off with a few leaves on lettuce and a couple of tomato slices.

"Besides being unique and large and bizarre, it tastes good," the Telegraph quoted Scott Lane, Whitecaps president, as telling the Grand Rapids News.

"I'm sure there are going to be crazies that come down and try to eat the entire thing," Lane added.

The snack contains nearly 300 grams of fat, 744 milligrams of cholesterol and more than 10,000 milligrams of sodium, the paper said.

However, Lane shrugged off the health implications inherent in taking on the Fifth Third.

"At home, people eat healthy. When they come to a game, they might eat a hot dog," Lanse said.
