some high carb counts…
Included are two medium rectangular one-topping pizzas, eight wings and five breadsticks -– all customizable and, according to the Huffington Post, clocking in at more than 5,000 calories.
Two medium, one-topping pizzas. Eight wings. Five breadsticks with marinara sauce. Pizza Hut’s new Big Dinner Box ($19.99) is a big dinner indeed. We’re guessing — and hoping — that this Big Dinner is meant for more than one person. HuffPost Food estimates that the total calorie count of this Big Dinner rings in at over 5,000 calories.
Kurt Kane, Pizza Hut Chief Marketing Officer said in a press release that Pizza Hut was breaking ground “by offering our first ever pizza value box because we know that our customers need a value-conscious option that can feed a crowd during the holidays.”
The deal was launched in preparation for today, the company-dubbed “Red Roof Wednesday,” the night before Thanksgiving when no one wants to cook or have a pile of dirty dishes. Pizza Hut anticipates selling 2.4 million pounds of pizza today, which is equivalent to the weight of 151,000 Thanksgiving turkeys. Now that’s a lot of Big Dinners.
Since I ate half of it, that’s about 2500 calories that that one meal was! Geesh! Well at least 4 pieces of the pizza were left from Friday that were still in the fridge today… Had 2 for supper tonight, so it’s not as bad as the above sounds, especially since it was a screwed up order a little, but still, not gonna do that again. That’s way too many damn carbs. For average male my age, height, etc. I should only take in about 45-55 grams of carbohydrates per meal.
