Whataburger knows that here in Texas, a few of us are already willing to have a cheat meal or two after starting our New Year diet. In fact, they’re so confident Texans are ready for a high-calorie meal that they just released their Mushroom Swiss Burger for a limited time, and people seem to be thoroughly enjoying it.

MySA.com says the new burger has “…two patties, topped with mushrooms, Swiss cheese and Au Jus sauce,” and it comes in a junior size, as well. But it isn’t exactly a “light” meal option. KHOU reported the unavoidable reality that “…the burger totals a whopping 1110 calories–almost 2000 if you order the ‘What-a-meal.’”

From reviews, the burger sounds like a must-have. Two news anchors from KENS 5 took a trip to Whataburger and recorded their reaction after tasting the Mushroom Swiss Burger for Facebook Live. When Jeff Brady first took a bite, he looked at the camera almost bewildered. “Oh my God…oh, it’s fantastic!” he said. “But I’m biased because I like mushrooms, and I love Swiss, so what’s not to like?” Of course, Whataburger wouldn’t let us down with a less-than-stellar burger. If you are a mushroom fan, this one might be worth bending any New Years resolutions for!
