Would you like a Crunchy Box?

Postby Corns » Sat Sep 01, 2018 15:38

This looks so appetizing yet revolting at the same time. A Glasgow salad? :lol: :lol: :lol:

A Scottish chippy is selling what may be Britain's unhealthiest takeaway: a giant box of deep-fried foods that contains an artery-clogging 7,000 calories.

The £10 bargain meal at the East West Spice takeaway restaurant in Greenock contains chips, two pizza 'crunches,' battered fish and sausages, two hamburgers, onion rings, chicken nuggets and fritters - all of which are deep fried. The 'Crunchy Box' also comes with a two-litre bottle of Irn-Bru which takes the calorie count to a whopping 6,792 kcal.

Its called a Munchie Box, for Christ's sake. The Daily Fail can't even get THAT right! And they've been all over Scotland for many years. Plus, that sorry excuse is just utter shite. No kebab meat? No pakora? Fucking amateurs. Just like the call centre arseholes who write for the Daily Fail.

Wow. Nothing appetizing there, frankly. But to each his own.

It ain`t haute cuisine, but some of that box would be tasty :lol: in a once-in-a-month greasy spoon type of way.

By "there", you mean Scotland?
