Created by Boston’s Restaurant and Sports Bar, the pepperoni pizza-wrapped bacon cheeseburger packs a walloping 1,360 calories and 2,000 milligrams of sodium. Available now in the chain’s 40 US restaurants, it was initially launched at a Canadian subsidiary.
The frankenburgers were conceived by company brass who wanted to have a little fun with the celebrity baby craze, a spokesperson told MailOnline.
Baked in the same pizza pans used to make personal pizzas, the frankenburgers and have no illusions of being healthy.
‘We're not pretending that it's a healthy product,’ Brad Bevill, vice president of marketing for the chain, told USA Today. ‘You're talking about a hamburger and pizza wrapped together.’
A YouTube video shows cooks placing the burger, with all the fixins, in a pizza pan complete with an uncooked pizza. The burger is then wrapped in the pizza and tossed in the oven. People are soon shown enjoying the creation.
The heart bombs are garnished with lettuce, pickle and tomato, but no one in the video seemed to have any need for them. They retail for $10.29 at one Connecticut location.
