It’s called Land, Air & Sea.

And, no, I am not referring to a parody of the US Marines’ Hymn, in whose service I am a proud retiree.

The “Land, Air & Sea” is a sandwich, a mega McDonald’s sandwich, to be specific. It’s being marketed by the multi-billion-dollar company as a “sandwich hack,” meaning, according to the McDonald’s website, that you “make it yourself” from readily available menu items. 

Just released as a concept on January 31st, and available, the website says, for a “limited time only,” the item registers a whopping 1,330 calories (by the company’s count) for eager eaters. So, that’s: 1,330 calories, 69 grams of fat, 18 grams of saturated fat, 2150 milligrams of sodium, 123 grams of carbohydrates, 19 grams of sugar (!), and 55 grams of protein. And those numbers don’t include fries and a sugary drink. (And please don’t tell me that anyone who orders this will ask for a diet drink.)
