(Don't) Get In The (P')Zone
Posted Aug 03 2008 10:05pm
Yesterday night I saw a television ad for Pizza Hut's P'zone (a pizza-calzone hybrid).
Never heard of it? The national chain provides the following description: "over a pound of toppings and cheese baked in a folded pizza crust and served with marinara sauce."
It sounds more exciting -- but equally disgusting -- when announced by an enthusiastic male voice.
Interestingly enough -- and quite on purpose, in my opinion -- Pizza Hut lists nutrition information for HALF a P'zone.
Ha! Do they truly believe someone will order an entire P'Zone and save half for the next day?
The end result is rather gruesome.
A cheese ("classic") P'Zone clocks in at 1,220 calories, 22 grams of saturated fat (over a day's worth) and 2,750 milligrams of sodium (also a day's worth!)
A meat P'Zone, meanwhile, adds 1,380 calories, 26 grams of satured fat, and 3,460 milligrams of sodium to your day.
Here's a radical idea. How about making
a P'Zone the standard size? Or would that be too emasculating to the "I just ate A POUND of cheese and toppings, man!" crowd?
