Taco Bell Debuts XXL Chalupa, Challenges 7 Other Giants

taco bell xxl chalupaYou would think with the country being more health conscious, fast food restaurants would throw in the apron when it comes to over-sized foods. But nope, they are all still vying with the "bigger is better" concept in mind, the most recent being Taco Bell and their XXL Chalupa.

It's a whopping 650 calories and looks like you'd need four hands and a package of napkins to consume it.

Just looking at it makes my stomach queasy. But wait 'til you check out these other seven food monstrosities.


Burger King's Pizza Burger: The pizza-burger fusion consists of four Whopper patties, slices of pepperoni and mozzarella cheese, and marinara and Tuscan sauce on a sesame seed bun. It's currently only being sold at their Whopper Bar location in NYC's Times Square -- clearly the rest of the world is not yet ready for this one.

In-N-Out's 4x4 Burger: One of their secret menu items, this gigantic burger is four 100% beef patties with all of the trimmings. Might want to leave off the side of fries with this one.

Carl's Jr. Footlong Cheeseburger: For all of those burger lovers out there who were jealous of their hot dog-loving friends that enjoyed foot-long meals, have no fear. Carl's Jr. is currently testing out a foot-long cheeseburger at select locations to help make your fatty dreams come true.

Red Robin's Wise Guy Burger: No longer do you have to make the difficult decision between a burger and mozzarella sticks. You can have the best of both worlds -- a burger topped with mozzarella sticks. Eureka!

Hardee's 2/3 Monster Thickburger: Monster is right. Blech.

Domino's Bread Bowl Pastas: What's better than carbs inside more carbs, covered in carbs? Though how are we supposed to eat the bucket bowl of pasta -- like a pizza? Like pasta? I'm so confused!

Friendly's Grilled Cheeseburger Melt: Thank the heavens for this restaurant combining our favorite foods to keep us from having to make decisions. Grilled cheese or burger? Both, please! Actually, make that two grilled cheeses.
