A Chicago man visited his local McDonald’s and used their “Create Your Taste” to make a “Big Max” burger, a creation that weighed 3.8 pounds and initially cost $890.80.
Moshe Tamssot, 51, wanted to test out the limits of McDonald’s new customizable sandwich platform by creating the largest possible burger with two quarter-pound beef patties and a variety of toppings (video below).
According to UPI, the burger included 10 slices of American cheese, 10 slices of white cheese, 10 slices of pepper jack cheese, 10 slices of bacon, and 10 servings each of pickles, red onions, guacamole, tortilla strips, lettuce, tomatoes, jalapenos, grilled onions, grilled mushrooms, mac special sauce, mayo, spicy mayo, sweet BBQ sauce, creamy garlic sauce, mustard and ketchup.
Check out how Tamssot came up with the monstrous concoction:
Tamssot decided to balance it out by ordering some fries and a Diet Coke.
The order initially totaled $890.80, but the restaurant adjusted the price to $24.89 due to “a pricing bug in the system.”
It’s unclear how many calories are packed into the “Big Max,” but the burger reportedly weighed in at a whopping 3.8 pounds.
"That's as big as we could make it without it falling apart," says one employee who took a photo of the sandwich.
McDonald’s “Create Your Taste” has no restrictions on its orders.
"In this test, customers are able to customize their order as they wish,” McDonald’s spokeswoman Lisa McComb told CNBC in an email. "[S]ome people like to go big or go home when it comes to their burgers.”
You can now “Create Your Taste” in nearly 30 restaurants in California, Illinois, Wisconsin, Georgia, Missouri and Pennsylvania, with more locations on the way.
