With todays concern about nutrition, the opportunity to make a choice is more important than ever, says Burger Kings Web site.
What may be more important than ever is to choose to eat somewhere else...especially if youre thinking of trying the companys two BK Cravers.
The new additions are nothing more than fatty cheese (mozzarella for the Mozzarella Sticks and cheddar for the Jalapeño Poppers) encased in a deep-fried coating. They come in four-piece packs with dipping sauce on the side.
Four pieces may not look like much, but wait til you see the damage: The Sticks and their Marinara Sauce deliver 310 calories, 16 grams of fat (six of them saturated), and 950 milligrams of sodium. The Poppers and their Ranch Sauce pack 350 calories, 26 grams of fat (seven of them saturated), and 890 milligrams of sodium.
That makes them as bad for your waistline and blood pressure as eight strips of bacon. And theyre even worse than bacon for your heart, since Burger Kings sat fat numbers dont include the artery-clogging trans fat in its breading and its frying oil.
We suggest you take Burger Kings Web site to heart...and make a choice.
You know what it is.
