Stacker 4 Whopper, aka Quad Whopper in other markets, is a Burger King item.  It’s a Whopper with 4 beef patties + 4 slices of cheese.

The meat and cheese, and some ketchup, weighed 413 grams at the start; 146 grams were left over when I was done.
It was so high that I could only get 1 bun and 2 patties in any single bite.
After about 4 bites, it started to crumble.
I managed to finish about 2/3.

Obviously, it was stupid.  Didn’t really taste like anything beyond a big pile of ground beef.  I tried to finish it, just to see how far I’d get, but got queasy at the halfway mark.  And stayed queasy for a few hours thereafter.  So it was gross, in addition to stupid.  I’m gross, in addition to stupid.

I deplored this kind of obscene glorification of overindulgence a few years back when I was at WHO and working pathways to reduce risk factors for noncommunicable diseases, such as unhealthy diet – in that prior post, I speculated: “I don’t think that a four-patty burger would taste very good; at that point, it’s just a big pile of ground beef” (see 5.031 Baconator Mushroom Melt).  I was right.  So shame on me for overindulging myself again.
