Great Yarmouth - Restaurateurs at the Jester Diner have introduced the massive Kidz Breakfast. This new meal contains 6,000 calories, weighs nine pounds and costs $23 (£15). The diner's latest hit has many health authorities concerned.
Digital Journal has reported in the past of unique food creations. There was a report of the new bacon-wrapped hot dogs that have hit supermarkets in the United States. During the Halloween period, some began to cook their cuisine with blood. How about the Las Vegas restaurant serving a burger that is composed of 8,000 calories? The stories are endless.
This latest news bit could tip the scale.
A new British breakfast is causing many health campaigns and authorities to worry. Jester Diner, a restaurant located in Great Yarmouth, England, is serving up a nine-pound (four kg) breakfast meal called Kidz Breakfast.
It’s basically a platter of breakfast assortments. The 2.5 sq. ft. plate is surrounded by four pieces of bread and butter, four pieces of toast and four pieces of fried bread. Inside consists of six eggs, two hash browns, 12 pieces of bacons, 12 sausages, eight-egg cheese and potato omelette, beans, tomatoes, four servings of black pudding, sauté potatoes and mushrooms.
The Kidz Breakfast is totalled to have 6,000 calories or three days worth of food for the average adult. It costs $23 (£15), but it is free if customers can devour the meal in less than one hour. Customers have attempted the feat, but have failed and left weighing heavier and $23 poorer.
“We kept getting hassled that our Fat Boy Breakfast wasn’t big enough so we decided that we’d go one stage further and take it to the ultimate,” said Jester Diner owner, Martin Smith, in an interview with the Daily Mail. “Obviously this is not something that should be attempted lightly. We don’t particularly recommend it. It’s just a bit of fun really.”
Smith spoke in jest to the UK Sun that many customers ask why they do not serve coffee or tea with the meal. They don’t because “caffeine is very bad for you.”
Is it fun? A representative from the National Obesity Forum, Professor David Haslam, told the news outlet that such a meal could lead to diabetes, heart disease and a stroke. He also noted that a person could die after eating the breakfast in one sitting, but noted that it was very unlikely.
Meanwhile, HeartCare Cardiac Support Group told BBC News (via Huffington Post) that finishing such a meal could “absolutely ruin your heart.” One gentleman, 39-year-old Lee Williams, has attempted three times to complete the dish.
