The true value of any all-you-can-eat deal depends on just how much food you’re able to funnel down your gullet while you’re sitting at the table. But seven teenagers in California most certainly got the most out of their dining dollar last weekend when they gorged on hundreds of pancakes at a local Denny’s over the course of 24 hours, and all for $5 each.
According to one boy’s father, the seven young ‘uns swallowed 301 pancakes, for an average of 43 pancakes each. He estimates that each diner consumed around 14,000 calories, which, figuring in syrup, margarine and beverages, seems to match up with the nutritional info on Denny’s website.
[O]ne boy nearly fell asleep on the toilet, and that Denny’s actually ran out of pancake batter and had to go out and buy more.
I don’t know which is more horrifying: the sheer amount of food consumed, or the idea of seven teenagers taking over a Denny’s booth for 24 hours.
