Jan. 6 (UPI) -- It appears that a number of people in Kansas aren’t exactly sticking with their New Year’s resolution to eat healthier…

After local Wichita hamburger chain Spangles introduced a new 3,000-calorie burger named “The Beast” on Christmas Eve, customers have begun snapping up the artery-clogging monstrosities like hotcakes.

The Beast, -- which features six one-third-pound steak burger patties,12 slices of American cheese, mustard, ketchup, onions and pickles -- costs $21.99, a price point that isn’t slowing sales at all.

“It’s something fun for people to talk about,” said marketing director Stephanie Huckins. “We don’t expect people to eat it alone by any means.”

The burger was supposed to be a limited-time offering, but The Beast will continue to terrorize customers for as long as they continue to purchase it.

"Sales keep building every day and we are just astonished," Huckins said. "We'll keep serving it as long as customers keep ordering it.”

If the dozen pieces of cheese and two pounds of steak burgers aren’t enough, customers can turn the burger into a value meal with fries and a drink for $24.99.
