OMG! This Won’t be On Mom’s Menu

Yes, the latest assault on America’s waistline comes from of Friendly’s, a restaurant chain in the US….kind of like a Denny’s. They offer a Grilled Cheese Burger Melt. Move over KFC Double Down, there’s a something with far more calories to disgust and deteriorate your health.

Friendly’s gastronomical innovation is legendary…..for what? We don’t really know. The Grilled Cheese BurgerMelt appears to be inspired by similar “Fatty Melts” and “Chubby Melts” that have been served in the US South for a few years now, as well as the Midwest. What’s the nutritional content of the culinary monstrosity you may ask? According to the Friendly’s: 1500 Calories, 870 Fat Calories, 79g Total Fat, 38g Saturated Fat, 180g Cholesterol, 2090mg Sodium, 101g Carbs, 9g Dietary Fiber, 4g Sugar and 54g Protein. People, this is the equivalent of eating more than two Big Macs in one meal! Safe to say, this type of delicacy will not be on Mom’s menu anytime soon.

Ay, Caramba!

Every day Mom’s Grilled Cheese Truck brings you what many call the best grilled cheese in Canada! We use specialty home make breads, the best quality cheese and everything we serve is top-quality. However, on occasion a scary grilled cheese gets brought to our attention and this week is no different. The folks at Denny’s have another “calorie-busting novelty sandwich”, the Fried Cheese Melt, which is four fried mozzarella sticks with melted American cheese grilled between two slices of sourdough bread. Hey, it’s only a whopping 895 calories. Ay, Caramba! KFC’s Double Down is actually healthier than the Fried Cheese Melt; the infamous bunless sandwich weighs in at 540 calories. The moral to this story……..if you want quality and lots of love in your grilled cheese, get yourself down to Mom’s this week for lunch. See you soon and just in case you were in the mood for the original “Ay, Caramba!!“, enjoy Bart Simpson.
