Big Mac versus the Whopper

Two guys put their tastebuds to the test to try and judge which fast food fare is unhealthier: McDonald’s flagship burger, the Big Mac or Burger King’s ‘flame-grilled’ Whopper.

It’s a bit of fun, but also a lesson in the amount of ‘crap’ contained in each of these fast food staples. You may be surprised which is unhealthiest, but then again, we all know that neither is exactly ‘healthy’.

Are you surprised by this result? Which burger do you prefer?
