‘Monster’ burger combo packs terrifying 3,500-calorie punch (with video)

edmontonjournal.com — My eyes probably weren't the only thing to widen on Thursday as I tucked into a burger-and-fries combo approaching 3,540 calories. Red Robin's "monster-sized" A.1 Peppercorn burger meal, including bottomless fries and a massive milkshake, has been named the most unhealthy meal available in a North American chain restaurant by the American Center for Science in the Public Interest.

The trade that brought Kale Kessy to the Edmonton Oilers was a bad one, but he’s still developing on the farm
