Pic: Reckon you could manage a 2,000 calorie double cheeseburger with two donuts instead of burger buns?
That sound you can hear is the drool dripping off our chins and onto the ground below.
Struggling to think of what to have for dinner this evening? How does a double cheeseburger with extra bacon and two donuts instead of burger buns – a feed that will account for a good 80 per cent of the recommended daily calorie intake for an average-sized male – sound? Bloody delicious, of course.
Unless you’re planning on making a homemade one for yourself, you won’t get your hands on probably the unhealthiest burger ever made anywhere around here we're afraid, but folk across the water can get them in UK pub chain Hungry Horse.
The Double Donut burger, which consists of two beef burgers topped with cheese, four bacon rashers and BBQ sauce, sandwiched between two glazed ring-doughnuts has been marketed by the chain with the slogan ‘So Wrong It's Right’, although we doubt they’re too keen to highlight the fact that it contains 53g of saturated fat and over eight grams of salt, both above the recommended daily allowance for adults.

According to the BBC, some critics have labelled it as a “heart attack on a plate” while Hungry Horse themselves have defended it by claiming that the nutritional information for every dish on their menu is available both in their outlets and on their website and that it is up to the consumer to make an informed decision on what they want to eat.
Obviously, regularly dining out on a meal like this is a quick route to an early grave, but we wouldn’t mind giving it a try as a one-off; what do you reckon Homer?
