Center for Science in the Public Interest (you know those guys like to party) has awarded a “Xtreme Eating Award” to Applebee’s for their Quesadilla Burger. Now you may be thinking to yourself, “I like things that are extreme”, “I like eating” or maybe even “I like awards.”Â That seems to be part of the problem. The award is intended to “single out foods high in calories, fat and sodium in restaurants.”Â Oh. Well that sounds bad. But the “Xtreme (note the use of no “e”, which makes it more awesome) Eating Award” makes it sound like something awesome.Â But no, they want you to be aware that this monstrosity of a burger contains 1,820 calories and a stunning 46 grams of saturated fat. Yikes.
