Overly indulgent appetizer combos are nothing new. Applebee’s. Chili’s. Olive Garden. Red Lobster. They all have them. But TGI Fridays takes things to a whole new level with its Endless Apps.
“Effective immediately, guests can enjoy Fridays’ most popular appetizers for just $10 per person with endless refills and endless choices,” said the company’s February press release.
That could mean only one thing: TGI Fridays Endless Apps are back. “Only this time it’s for good,” says the TV commercial. “Endless Apps just got endlesser.”
Yippee! Now you can lay down a tenner and just keep the plates of Mozzarella Sticks, Loaded Potato Skins, BBQ Chicken Flatbread, Pan-Seared Pot Stickers, Meatballs, Fried Pickles, and Boneless Wings coming.
Endless apps deliver, well, endless calories. But let’s assume you stick to just three rounds. (Fridays’ Twitter feed eggs people on to keep going.)
The potato skins, followed by the buffalo wings with blue cheese and the meatballs, will set you back 2,940 calories (about 1½ days’ worth), 59 grams of saturated fat (a three-day supply), and 6,300 milligrams of sodium (enough for Monday through Thursday). And that’s not even the worst combo.
We could go on…endlessly.
