Introducing the 10,000-Calorie Burger

Inspired by a Cartoon Network show

The Daily Mail has located a reportedly 10,000-calorie burger that is being sold at Mister Eaters, a fish and chips shop in Preston, in Lancashire, England. Created by Corinne Clarkson, 39, it is inspired by the “Ulti-meatum,” hailed as the “best burger in the world” in the fictional Cartoon Network series The Regular Show.

In the TV program, the coveted meal is only available once in a century and consists of a cheeseburger within a cheeseburger sandwiched between two deep-fried cheeseburgers as buns and covered in Himalayan ketchup. The burger at Mister Eaters is made up of five pounds of beef, six slices of cheese, three whole buns, and costs £20 (a little more than 30 U.S. dollars).

For fans who don’t live near that restaurant, there are YouTube tutorials about how to make the epic meal, if you want to try to make your own version at home.
