From the people who brought you the Whopper topped with 1,050 strips of bacon, jello made of McDonald's burgers, and a Big Mac meal heated in a rice cooker comes a Whopper topped with 1,000 slices of cheese (aka, a bloated tower of cheese slices with Whopper ingredients on top and somewhere underneath). RocketNews24 reporter Mr. Sato ordered the burger three days in advance from a Burger King in Japan and was rewarded with a Whopper weighing in at 12.782 kilograms (28.18 pounds) and containing 45,661 calories. Thankfully, he didn't eat the whole thing:
Mr. Sato managed to finish about 350 slices before giving up, explaining: "It tastes good, but if I eat any more I won't have room for dinner."
Watch him tackle the cheese mountain in the video below.
