Fat bomb from Burger King debuts

The war to create the least-healthy sandwich legally available in a restaurant is heating up, with Burger King launching the NY Pizza Burger in Times Square Thursday.

The burger, if it can be called that, comes on a 10-inch bun that contains four quarter-pound burger patties, pepperoni, mozzarella cheese, Tuscan pesto sauce and marinara sauce. The burger is then cut into six slices, like a pizza, and served in a cardboard box not unlike a pizza box. It contains 2,520 calories and costs $12.99 US.

Burger King emphasized the NY Pizza Burger is meant to be shared, and not tackled alone.

The NY Pizza Burger is the latest in a string of new ultra-fatty fast-food meals.

Others include the KFC Double Down — two pieces of deep-fried chicken sandwiching cheese and bacon — and the Krispy Kreme Cheeseburger, a bacon cheeseburger that uses Krispy Kreme doughnuts as a bun.
