Friendly’s knows how to get attention: Find a ridiculously unhealthy meal, and then make it even more artery-clogging.
The chain has come up with a way to put even more cheese in a quesadilla, releasing a Mac & Cheese Quesadilla. And it’s even on the kids’ menu. The menu recommends you add bacon or a “Friendly Frank” to complete your meal — but not before you pick your drink, which can be cotton-candy flavored, and an ice-cream dessert. Combine the quesadilla with the unhealthiest drink and dessert, and the meal sets your kid back 2,270 calories, 45 grams of saturated fat, 3,320 mg of sodium and 23 grams of carbohydrates, according to The Consumerist.
This isn’t the first time Friendly’s has released fattening fare. Back in June, they announced the Grilled Cheese BurgerMelt, which actually has grilled cheese sandwiches for buns, on the adult menu. The only way to top that was to offer something equally unhealthy, but for the children. Let’s hope this quesadilla comes with a required jog around the restaurant.
