The Fifth Third Burger Comes to Reality, All 4889 Calories of It
It's official: the "Fifth Third Burger" has made it to the concession stand of the Fifth Third Ballpark, in Comstock Park, MI, home of the West Michigan Whitecaps, a minor league baseball team. CNBC reports that the hamburger weighs in at, unsurprisingly, 5/3 pounds of meat (1.66 pounds for the mathematically challenged), should serve about four people, and will cost $20.
The ingredients: "nacho cheese, chili, salsa, crunched tortilla chips, tomato and lettuce served on a special eight-inch sesame seed bun." It clocks in at 4889 calories, 299 grams of fat, and 10,887mg of sodium (454% of the daily recommend sodium intake).
Said the team's director of marketing and media relations, "It's something fun that people can understand."
