The Dollar Menu Gauntlet

Don't worry, King didn't do the McDonalds DMG today. He actually went with the fruit and cottage cheese, probably wise as he fends off a cold.

But JamZone has received some definite reader interest in the DMG. Turns out that the three DMGs (McDonalds, Wendy's, and Burger King) aren't that suitable for side-t0-side comparison. Here's why:

The Wendy's dollar menu features 12 items, including three burgers, five nuggets, fries and a baked potato. All in all, this glorious dozen packs 3130 calories and 125 grams of fat, 37 of which are saturated. That is probably a bit heavy for a lunch jam.

But take a stroll down to Burger King, where the dollar menu offers you a well-rounded jam of the Whopper Jr, four chicken tenders, fries, onion rings, salad, apple pie and soda. You could probably take your girlfriend here for a DMG with little protest. It's a reasonable jam and comes in right at $7.

Meanwhile, McDonalds DMG is just as bad as JamZone initially thought. Here's what you get, according to the Web site: "Double Cheeseburger, McChicken Sandwich, Fries, Soft Drink, Snack Size Fruit 'n Yogurt Parfait, Hot Fudge Sundae, 2 pies and a Side Salad." JamZone knows what you're thinking - pretty much in line with Burger Kings' waistline-conscious guantlet, right? But trust JZ- that pair of pies and those two dairy desserts will create a war zone in your stomach, and in an hour or two you will be cringing in pain on the toilet as you try to expel the heap of fat and dairy and meat and carbs that are squaring off in your gut.

Anyway, King and Grape will surely try one of the DMGs soon. JZ will let you know how it goes.

i want in on the wendy's DMG crush. The only one I seen is on market by where all the suits work, are there more? Also I want to see a jamzone discussion about those new KFC bowls (I dare you). Why have you not mentioned the KFC/Taco Bell 2-in-1 stores? There's one on guerrero and duboce, that shit is a mind-melter. They have combo meals like 2 tacos and some chicken fingers and a drink!! How can you front on that?
