Hardee’s introduces new mega-calorie Monster Thickburger:

ST. LOUIS (AP) — As many fast-food chains are catering to the health-conscious, Hardee’s is introducing the biggest and thickest of its Thickburgers — one with enough calories to make Ronald McDonald blush.

The St. Louis-based chain on Monday rolled out its Monster Thickburger — two 1/3-pound slabs of Angus beef, four strips of bacon, three slices of cheese and mayonnaise on a buttered sesame seed bun. The sandwich alone sells for $5.49, $7.09 with fries and a soda.

Even a news release touted the Monster — at 1,420 calories and 107 grams of fat– as “a monument to decadence.” Add fries and a soda and a single meal would involve more calories and fat than most people should get in a day.

The introduction comes at a time when McDonald’s, Wendy’s and other fast-food giants are offering salads and other lower-calorie fare. Subway advertising has long used patron Jared to tout the low-calorie items on the menu.

Hardee’s has gone another direction.

You think? 1,420 calories and 107 grams of fat
