This 4,000-calorie breakfast box will either cure your hangover or kill you
11 September 2017

We’ve all had one of those hangovers where the only answer is ‘all the food in the house, and then the same amount again’.

Sure, in normal circumstances there’s such a thing as ‘too much food’, but there’s always an exception.

And that exception is now being catered for by Kat’s Cabin, a café in Walsall which seems to have found a way to channel the spirit of lying in bed for six hours playing FIFA and watching Peep Show, and put it into one massive box.

When you’re hungover, you want the comfort of a massive pizza in the biggest box the shop has in stock. And yet you also – more than anything else – want a fry-up.

So what could be better than combining the symbolism of a far-too-big takeaway box with the bacon, sausage and eggs of a Full English.

No, it’s not a breakfast pizza, it’s a 4,000-calorie box of death.

Coming in at just £15, the ‘Ultimate Breakfast Box’ contains six rashers of bacon, six sausages, four fried eggs, four slices of black pudding, four hash browns, six slices of toast, three slices of fried bread, and two pots each of beans, tomatoes and mushrooms.

Somehow they seem to have managed to make it all without ballsing up the timings, before cramming it all into a large pizza box (with the beans, tomatoes and mushrooms in separate containers – they’re not monsters).

The box comes with two free cups of tea, coffee and orange juice, implying it’s meant to be split between two people.

But we’d be lying if we said we didn’t know at least one person capable of polishing off the whole thing after overdoing it on a night out.

According to the Daily Mail, the whole thing contains 4,275 calories and 210g of fat, which feels like a lot. Especially when free delivery means you won’t even need to leave the house to get your hands on it.
