Scottish Takeaway's 7000-Calorie Crunch Box Is Deep Fried Heaven

We all have cheat days where we indulge in a few extra treats over the weekend - but this Scottish chip shop is taking the treat day takeaway to a whole new level.

Say hello to the 'Crunch Box', which contains chips, two pizza crunches (that's 'deep fried pizza', for anyone south of the border), fish, two sausages, two hamburgers, onion rings, chicken nuggets and fritters - all battered - along with a two-litre bottle of Irn-Bru.

Basically, it's definitely a new food challenge for anyone keen out there.

This bargain box can be bought from East West Spice in Greenock, Scotland, for only £10 - yes, a tenner.

However, to tackle the whole thing you'd be taking in almost 7,000 calories, almost three times the recommended daily amount - but you probably wouldn't want to eat much for the rest of the day anyway.

Bahadur Singh, manager of the shop in Greenock, told the Mirror he has had a positive response about the high-calorie meal - which he says is designed for more than one person.

He said: "I just thought it would be nice to combine the ideas and bring something which would appeal to everyone.

"We put the deal on and people seem to love it. Everything is cooked in fat but the dish is big enough for three or four people to share.

"It's definitely for the family to eat. People think it's a great deal."

Ross McCafferty took to Twitter to share news on his hometowns newest takeaway dish.

He said: "A chippy in my home town is selling this 'crunch box' for a tenner and if you don't think it looks like the most appetising thing ever then there's no hope for you."

He added: "Ten quid for that. Could feed a family of six for a week."

Plenty of people have taken to social media to share their feelings on the takeaway's food challenge - however, the reaction hasn't been entirely positive.

One person tweeted: "It's like a mixed tempura platter but made with tears and heart attacks."

Another commented: "If that box was in the X-Men universe it would be known as 'Diabeto'."

Naturally, not everyone was put off by the incredible food challenge - some people found it quite appetising.

One person tweeted in support of the 'Crunch Box' saying: "I'm a total health freak. I even grow my own fruit and veg but maynnnnn, I'd have a crack at this lot! Real treats there."

Another said: "Anything deep fried is a thing up there. Gotta love them for it. The food is class. Chicken tikka chasni pizza from Ardrossan is to die for."

Is this a challenge you could take on? And would you do it alone?
