If you're keen to indulge in a greasy humpday lunch, Hungry Jack's has a deal on that sounds too good to pass up. For one day only, you can grab a Big Cheese burger for just $1. No coupon is required.
The Big Cheese comes with two slices of cheese, a beef patty, mustard, ketchup, onion and mayo. There's also a BBQ version available which eschews the mustard and ketchup for BBQ sauce. So how big is it compared to a regular cheeseburger?
With some loose change rattling around in my pocket this morning, I decided to indulge in one for breakfast (the things we do for our readers).
The burger tastes like the typical Hungry Jacks fare and is roughly the same size as a McDonald's Quarter Pounder — which makes it an excellent bargain for $1. After today's promotion it will apparently sell for $4.95.
Curiously, Hungry Jacks has neglected to include the dietary information on their promotional poster (right). The Hungry Jack's website also makes no mention of the new burger and the wrapper has no dietary info on it either.
Sensing a calorie nightmare, we contacted Hungry Jack's and asked them what the kilojoule count was. According to the spokesperson we spoke to, the Big Cheese contains 3256kj.
This actually isn't too terrible — it's identical to a Whopper with Cheese. The BBQ version, meanwhile, comes in slightly lower at 3237kj.
That said, at $1 a pop, there's a strong temptation to go completely nuts at lunch — we'd advise sticking to a single burger (two at most). If you really want to take advantage of the deal, maybe buy a few extra burgers and hand 'em out to the homeless.
The offer is valid today only (1 May 2013) until 11.59pm tonight.
