most calorific fast food items
Fast-food always presents a variety of options. There are items for the health conscious and items for people who only care that it tastes good.
This is a post for the latter group. We took a look at 30 of the country’s top fast-food restaurants and identified the highest-calorie item via the information at fastfoodnutrition.org.
It was a fun exercises and we’d be lying if we said it didn’t make us the slightest bit hungry. Where are you headed after this?
One note before we begin: In most cases, we did not consider drinks as milkshakes would have often been the top item.
(Those calories add up when you basically drink ice cream.)

Throw in a large Coke (290 calories) and large order of fries (510) and you’re looking at a meal that will set you back almost 1,600 calories.
Triple Stacker King — 1,370 calories.
Burger King has its share of big, high-calorie sandwich, but this one is far and way the highest calorie item. It features three quarter-pound beef patties, bacon, cheese, special sauce on a sesame seed bun.
