    Burger King Breakfast Sandwich Packs the Calories

    Burger King Sandwich Packs the Calories


    MIAMI - Burger King began offering two new breakfast sandwiches Monday, including one that packs more calories and fat than a Whopper.


    The Enormous Omelet Sandwich carries 730 calories and 47 grams of fat and comes with two eggs, sausage, three strips of bacon and two slices of melted American cheese on a bun. It's heftier than a Whopper hamburger, which weighs in at 700 calories and 42 grams of fat.


    Officials at Miami-based Burger King Corp. said that healthier choices are also available, but surveys showed customers wanted bigger sandwiches.


    "By expanding our indulgent breakfast sandwich menu, Burger King restaurants now offer even more alternatives for our guests who want a convenient and filling breakfast," said Russ Klein, Burger King's chief global marketing officer.


    The other new breakfast item, the Western Omelet Croissanwich, is a lighter pick with 320 calories and 17 grams of fat. It has fire-grilled onions, ham and melted American cheese inside a folded egg on a croissant.


    The omelet sandwich will stay on the menu at about $2.99, but the Western sandwich is in stores until May 8.

    The nutrition guides on the websites are very helpful. I thought I was eating somewhat healthy with the Arby's "marketfresh" ham & swiss sandwich. Then I found out it's over 40 grams of fat!......

    If you have one of those for breakfast, are you breaking a fast or annhilating it?

    Be afraid, very afraid. As stated in the article, surveys showed customers wanted bigger sandwiches. Maybe people shouldn't get what they want, no? I've had Arby's croissanwiches. They're not bantam. I don't see how someone could be famished after one.

    I'm with ya, hi565!

    When I read a thread like this and the Hardee's Thickburger thread I begin craving one of these!

    I such a pig! I'm so ashamed!

    But I do know better and I've not tried a thickburger. Not yet, anyway.

    The really frightening thing is I know people that will go pick up two of these, bring them into the office and consider it a good breakfast. People are so ignorant when it comes to nutrition sometimes :\

    Why is this sandwich such a phenom? All I seem to hear lately is the BK grumble. Give it a rest...there's a pub down the street that's got a burger that would crush the calorie/fat stats of this puny BK offering.

    Besides, I hear that a Starbucks frappuccino has more calories than this new breakfast sandwich. Why have I not heard the roar of discontent about that? Well, I probably will now that I mentioned it, eh?

    Looks like the Starbucks frappuccinos are a little light in the gut. Roar.

    Let them eat that crap. Get diabetes, heart probs, thins out the traffic on the streets, makes for fewer oldsters around to collect dwindling SS benefits, and be drains on HMO costs. Slobs will eat what they want cause they are to stupid and lazy to get up a few minutes earlier to eat breakfast at home, brown bag for lunch,then they ***** about about meds and HBpreasure, waist lines,etc, etc.Their option...eat garbage die young. My option? eat healthy

    As long as they don't f**k up my insurance premiums, which I'm sure they do by claiming all sorts of werid medication for their obesity problems. Other than that, I actually like people to be as unhealthy as they could. I actually try to convince some people to go after the unhealthy option sometimes. The more fat slobs in this country, the better I look.
    I prefer this ol' sayin, "Give a man a fire, keep him warm for a night, set a man on fire, keep him warm for life."
