Evening @MrPeaky

When it comes to a Burger King XL Bacon Double with extra patty plus onion rings etc., I suspect most of us would skip the bun.

Would Burger King swap the bun for a salad, if requested?

Don't think they do salad as a side so probably not.
Without the bun its around 40C for the whole meal.

Hi @cdpm. It certainly sounds as though that home-made slow cooker creation, soups, broths, stews and low carb liquids in general are the way to go, until your mouth has recovered and you're back on track.

Hmmn .... better than polishing off a whole Mars bar by itself, I suppose @cdpm.

As a teenager, I tried a Mars bar here in London. It was so sickly sweet, I couldn't finish it. Not a fan, I'm afraid.
Then again, perhaps Canadian Mars bars are different from their English counterparts.
