Lunchtime Deal/Health Warning: Hungry Jack’s Two-For-One Big Cheese Burger Deal

Lunchtime Deal/Health Warning: Hungry Jack’s Two-For-One Big Cheese Burger Deal

Earlier in the month, Hungry Jack’s sold its new ‘Big Cheese’ Burger for just $1. Today, you can get two for the price of one as part of the company’s “Twosdays” deal. Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in!

The Big Cheese is basically Hungry Jack’s version of a McDonald’s Quarter Pounder. It comes with two slices of cheese, a beef patty, mustard, ketchup, onion and mayo (there’s also a BBQ sauce version available).

Today, you can snap up two of these burgers for the price of one ($4.95). We’ve scarfed one of these things before, and it’s fairly typical of a Hungry Jack’s burger — just a bit cheesier.

When it comes to calorie damage, the Big Cheese Twosdays deal is a bit worrying though. The regular Big Cheese contains 3256 kilojoules per burger while the BBQ version comes in at a slightly lower 3237kj. This is even more artery-bothering than Hungry Jack’s ‘Twosdays’ Bacon Deluxe offer.

When combined with a large Coke and fries, this lone meal exceeds most people’s entire recommended daily energy intake by about 1230kj. (If you work out your energy intake via calories, just divide the kilojoule count by 4.2.)

We subsequently feel unable to recommend this as a meal for one, but with a friend in tow, you can happily grab a burger for under $2.50. (Just make sure to chew thoroughly.)

  • This reminds me of the time I ordered a double quarter pounder, finished the burger, then looked at the information feeling very full and learned I had eaten 1.5 times my daily dose of protein…
    Not the worst thing you can overdose on, although other statistics were a little disturbing too, but I shudder to think of the impact a pounder would have on you.
    (An off-menu item available from MacDonalds, apparently okay if cooked properly, but you don’t feel like eating for the next day and a half.)
