Mcdonalds - the 4 patty MAC-DADDY, Say Hello to Clogged Arteries

United States
April 17, 2008 8:17pm CST
A new promotion by McDonald's in Japan has unleashed hell on the fast-food world. Not only have they released the Mega Mac (four patties and cheese), they have also developed equivalent "mega'"sandwiches for breakfast and dinner "four patties, why stop there, 5 patties, 6 patties Deep fry the whole thing and wrap it in cheese. -- Put it on a pizza. Just think a regular big mac which has 2 patties is a total of 540 calories, so now there is four patties so now we're talking more than 1,000 calories in one sandwich. And lets not forget the Super-sized fries, and the extra large soda. Let's say hello to super-sized waist lines. This is just crazy, I would never eat anything like this and no way would I let my kid eat this. And I am not one to boss around my boyfriend but if he ordered one of these in front of me I would have to say something. This sandwich just screams clogged arteries and is heart attack city. Shouldn't there be a point where the F.D.A should be able to step in with these fast food places and say enough is enough. Would anyone even try one of these sandwiches? Even better question is would a person be able to eat this without thinking to them self "my goodness what am I doing to my body?"

Is this a joke? It almost reads like one, but I'll entertain the truth value since I've seen the BK quad... (-_-) Here's whats even more ironic Phillygirl. The Japanese diet and healthstyle is actually one of the healthiest in the world... why in the world is this health monstrosity being released there? I'd almost think McDonalds is out to make everyone as health-deficient as many people in the states... no offense intended. And didn't they get rid of the Supersize, or was that stateside only? To answer your questions... there will be people that'll try it, especially when it hits shoreside. They've got eating contests (some for speed, others for quantity, and others for sizes... 6 pound burger anyone?). You also have people that will eat anything. Some people actually don't care about what they are eating. Its so bad, it can even show itself in people's children as well (200 pound infants, 300+ pound little children)... its astonishing

You brought up a really good point. It did not even come to mind when I was writing the beginning post. Your so right about the Japanese diet it is so healthy. So why Mcdonald's would choose their for the launch of this burger seems crazy. And I am sure many people will try this sandwich. Where I'm at McDonald's or as some say Mickey d's still super sizes. I think one of the funniest things is when a person will go and order a big mac, super sized fries and than a diet coke, Like what is the point in that. But to each their own. It just scares me to think about when this burger comes to the states, and to cities where obesity is already out of control.

Ah, I see. I thought McD abolished the Supersize because of "health concerns"... clearly that's not the case... And more of a doozy than that, if McDonalds is really concerned with health... why release a sandwich that can account for 2 to 3 days of caloric intake for a human adult? The point about the supersize fries and diet coke... thats a classic. So much so, it was one of the first chain jokes on the internet from about a decade ago. The sandwich itself could fail due to its premiere market... but I've been wrong on a couple of other calls in this department (I bet against the BK Quad... boy was I proven wrong... -_-). Even if it does fail in Japan, it could show up stateside... and the rest will be history, I guess.

well a big mac is pretty big and from the picture it kind of resembles that but with more meat. I think double cheeseburgers have too much meat so this thing doesn't look appealing to me at all.

Japan sure seems like a strange place to introduce this sandwich. I have always thought of Japan to have the healthiest food. Generally the people are of smaller stature too. It just doesn't make sense to start it there. I guess its not enough that we're killing our own people with this junk food. Now we're going to other countries.

I really think that some fast food, which has no vitamins at all, should just be banned. Why are we allowed to eat this rubbish that is proven to be unhealthy? Because of tax profits are too hard to resist, regarding our governments. I suppose the best I can do is to not buy it!

IN JAPAN?i thought JAPAN was to fast food as American IDOL is to good music?the complete opposite!in fact a short time ago north americans were praising how healthy Japanese food were and how japanese had less cancer per person as oppose to Americans,due to the low fat content food they consumed! what happened? I think in the future we will need a fashion and junk food police!

har har har, is this a kiddie meal? its really dangerous to eat a lot of pattie. specially if its 4 or more inside you bun. this is scarry. i would love to eat a burger but just with single patty and cheese. my wife also introduced me on eating fish fillet or chicken burger. actually my wife has been at japan, and people there are not that burger eating people. i think the promotion is more for foreigners than for the japanese people. what do you think?

Wow that is some serious arteries clogging. I would never try that. I mean I would try it but defitnately not from McDonald's. I might try it from In-N-Out or Fat Burger but never McDonald's, yuck! But I would only eat it if I hadn't eaten anything for the whole day. And if I hadn't already pigged out for the month or have eaten unhealthy. But I mean wow, you know? I would eat it but instead of asking myself "my goodness what am I doing to my body?" I would be enjoying it. Lets just hope for the really unhealthy people that want to eat one that their isn't mayonnaise under each patty.

I agree 100%!! My youngest Brother has a weight problem (as does myself and several other family members) and I told him if he'd just cut down on the fast food he'd see the difference. He's started cutting down and when he does eat out he goes more for chicken and he's losing quite a bit of weight. Now if I could just get him to cut the soda's out. It is horribly dangerous to eat at those places and I can't believe that McDonalds would offer something like this and still try to push salads and yogurts...what's the point. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

Oh, I know it can be hard. I used to drink them all the time too. I can't hardly stand the taste of them now. I mostly drink water or milk when I have cereal. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~
