Ever see that website, www.thisiswhyyourefat.com?
Well, I think Domino’s has earned a spot in its Fat Hall of Fame (I don’t know if they really have one, but if they did, this should be in there): Pasta Bread Bowl.
Exactly what it sounds like: a creamy, saucy pasta dish baked into a pizza dough bowl. The tagline: “Pasta So Good, You’ll Devour the Bowl”. Your calorie-laden choices include Italian Sausage Marinara, Pasta Primavera, Chicken Alfredo, Three Cheese Mac ‘n Cheese, and Chicken Carbonara. Good Lord, these things are a carb-addict’s wet dream! If I were you, I’d call my broker NOW and buy stock in insulin pumps.
Not that Domino’s was ever famous for introducing low-calorie fare, but come on! Their Bacon-Wrapped Cheese-a-Nator Triple Crusted Deep Fried Pizza cannot be far behind.
According to the Detroit Free Press, Domino’s Chief Marketing Officer Russell Weiner said, “This is pasta like you’ve never seen before and can’t find anywhere else. The pasta scored extraordinarily well in our product tests. Consumers were amazed by the idea of the warm bread bowl and the pasta being baked simultaneously.”
Amazed, indeed. More like horrified, I would imagine. Surprise – they haven’t released the Nutrition info for these puppies yet. It’s got to be incalculable, like pi. But, don’t despair. If you’re watching your waisline, Domino’s offers you the option of ordering the pasta WITHOUT the breadbowl. Because every 5,000 calories count.
