McDonald’s new Create Your Taste menu lets you make your own completely customizable and *gasp* delicious looking, gourmet McDonald’s burgers. The set up is simple: you hop on a kiosk and select whatever toppings you like on a burger and McD’s will whip it up for you with better ingredients. But that’s not fun! Fun is using that kiosk to make the biggest and most ridiculous burger monstrosity that’s possible. This is it.
Moshe Tamssot built a burger he called The Big Max which is an “artisanal bun” and two quarter pound patties with a maximum amount of toppings and sauce:
- 10 slices of American cheese
- 10 slices of sharp white cheese
- 10 slices of pepper jack cheese
- 10 pieces of bacon
- 10x pickles
- 10x red onions
- 10x guacamole
- 10x tortilla strips
- 10x lettuce
- 10x tomatoes
- 10x jalapenos
- 10x grilled onions
- 10x grilled mushrooms
- with 10x mac special sauce, 10x mayo, 5x spicy mayo, 10x sweet BBQ sauce, 10x creamy garlic sauce, 10x mustard, 10x ketchup
And then he got an order of fries and a large diet Coke. The original price registered an error price of $890 but ended up getting adjusted by an act of God to a little under 25 bucks. The whole order looks like a medieval feast and weighed nearly 4 pounds.
The USA is an amazing country and McDonald’s is an amazing restaurant and humans are amazing creatures.
