Wendy's Baconator quite popular

Wendy's new "Baconator" sandwich has six strips of hickory smoked bacon on top of 1/2 lb. of beef with American cheese, ketchup and mayonnaise.

"This is one of the most successful new product introductions we've had in some time," said Wendy's Chief Executive Officer and President Kerrii Anderson.

Wendy's sold 25 million of the Baconators in the first 8 weeks they were being promoted.

That's over 20 billion calories and 2,810,893 lbs of fat! That much fat is equal to 439 H2 Hummers. (And you'll need a Hummer to tote you around if you eat many Baconators!)

Here's the nutrition facts for just 1 Baconator: 830 calories, 460 calories from fat, 51 grams of fat, 22 grams saturated fat, 2.5 grams trans fat, 170 mg cholesterol, 1920 mg sodium, 35 grams carbs, 1 gram fiber, 8 grams sugar, 57 grams protein.

Baconator GOOD! So good I actually worry about whether an artery would close if I ate one every (other) day.
It is basicaly a really good BLT with a burger and mayonaisse. Thank you for producing such a lovely combination. Wondering if it qualifies as an atkins diet worthy food.

How anybody could eat something this bad and terrible for you is beyond me. I had my first one, and last one as far as I am concerned. After being stranded in the wilderness for 5 hours in the cold snow, it was worth trying it. It has more saturated fat in it than i have eaten in a whole month or more.

I like the Baconator but reading that made me want to throw up. It's a good meal, for let's say, once every 6 months.

The Baconator advertises "6" strips of bacon, when in fact it is really 3 slices of bacon cut in half.

Well this thing has more protein in a day then anybody needs, so aside from the fact of the calories and the fat it also hurts your liver, kidneys, etc. Great food hey, vegetarianism ftw :p

uhmmm, baconators are a delicious treat.... definitely not okay to eat on a regular basis..... but one every couple months is quite satisfying!
