The ‘Double Donut Burger’ consists of 1,996 calories (98% of a woman’s recommended daily calorie intake) it also packs in 53g of saturated fat and 8.2g of salt.

They also released a statement defending the burger:

“Our popular menu caters for a variety of tastes and appetites and includes everything from lower calorie options such as our hot chicken and bacon salad at 393 calories, through to the indulgent occasional treat such as our new Double Donut Burger.

All the nutritional information for our menu is available on our website and in our pubs, so that our customers are able to make informed decisions about what they choose to eat.

– STEVE JEBSON, HUNGRY HORSE”
