We’ve allll seen it.  The Double Down:

 It’s in its own class of WTF glory.   Perhaps you’ll eat it, perhaps you’ll “ohnoyoudidntit,” perhaps you’ve done worse than it.   Oh, what, wait, you think that’s impossible?     Have you ever tasted a McGriddle?   Nope, it’s not an Irish bbq.   I could sit here and tsk my face off over the Double Down, but I know I’ve housed far worse.

:::sidebar, whenever I say DOUBLE DOWN I’m reminded of a Tampa radio co-worker who shared the same name, and I wonder now if he regrets using it or is rejoicing in it…ok, back to caloric blog glory:::

For serious though, ….in a hungover horrific A.M., have you ever imbibed the McGriddle?  I’ll admit to it SANS hangover, which probably  isn’t something I shouldn’t put out in blongland to but it was tasty worth it.

If you’re unfamiliar with what exactly a McGriddle is..that would be two pancakes (essentially) cushioning a piece of McD’s egg, bacon and cheese.  Yea.   Not quite so healthy.   But could it be worse than the chocolate covered Ritz?

 

 I found these heart attack inducing gems last holiday season at Hannaford.  I didn’t buy them, I just sort of gaped at them as I walked by them.  PS they were located in the Kotex section in a basket…that should say something.   C’mon, chocolate covered butter flavored crackers???????   I want to vomit right now, but thankfully my bro clued me in to even more disgusting food than coccoa bean flavoured lard crisps, how about the Baconater:

Long story short, we’ve all eaten some poop food at some point in our lives.  We know it’s not good for us, we know it’s a big ole marketing scheme from the fast food chains, so munch on some carrots and carry on my caloric counting friends.   FYI, if you are a calorie counting fiend like myself…have you seen how many calories are in the Double Down?   Not as many as my fave meal at Puff Changy’s….scarrrrrry.   Carry on, carry on.
