Man leaves people shocked with ‘cardiac arrest in a box’ fried food

Most people love a bit of fried food every now and then, but one man left people wondering how he’s “still alive” after sharing a photo of his “cardiac arrest in a box” dinner.

We Brits are known for our fish and chips, but whether we like it or not, it’s not a healthy meal. Although the fish itself probably contained some nutrients at one point, they are certainly offset by the fried batter surrounding it, not to mention the large serving of chunky chips and the amount of salt and vinegar that usually goes with them.

Of course, fish isn’t the only “main” you can get at a chippy: you can also opt for alternatives like pies, fried sausages, or apparently fried pizza.

I have to admit I’ve personally never come across such an offer at a chippy, but this dish is known as a ‘pizza crunch’ and was part of an order placed by Reddit user u/Eamonsieur, who explained: “Soak a pizza in batter and fry it, and you have a crispy pizza. I understand.

In a post on the ‘CasualUK’ thread, the customer revealed that he not only received a crispy pizza, but also what appears to be a deep fried black pudding and a serving of chips.

Alongside a picture of their order, they wrote: “I think my arteries are pretty fucked.”

In case you have any doubts about the nutritional value of this meal, let me break it down.

We have the dough, the cheese and the tomato of the pizza, the potato of the French fries, the blood and the fat that constitutes a black pudding, and the dough and the oil with which everything is fried.

It’s no wonder Reddit users were worried about the health of the person who ate it.

In response to the image, one Reddit user wrote: “Jesus Christ mate, how are you still alive?”

Another shocked internet user questioned how such orders were allowed when the government went to great lengths to crack down on sugar content, writing: “They took the sugar out of everything but allowed this to be sold. My heart sank.” just by looking at it.”

While this particular takeaway may prove to be too much for some, apparently Eamonsieur is no stranger to these types of requests, as one Reddit user recognized them from another one of his previous meals, writing, “Also, are you the haggis type? fried from the other day?”

Eamonsieur confirmed yes, and his responsiveness indicates that his arteries are holding up well so far.
