MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis., Feb. 28 (UPI) -- A Wisconsin sandwich chain said its new Big Daddy sandwich includes salami, bologna, pepperoni, two types of ham and three types of cheese.

Cousins Subs of Menomonee Falls said the sandwich has 1,470 calories, the equivalent of three McDonald's Quarter Pounders with Cheese or more than six Johnsonville Stadium Brats, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported Tuesday.

"What we've been hearing from our guests for a couple of years is that they're really looking for hearty sandwiches and premium quality and the best ingredients, and that's what we set out to do with the menu as a whole," marketing director Justin McCoy said. "The Big Daddy happened to be a part of that."

Jim White, a registered dietitian and a spokesman for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, said it would take about five hours to walk off the calories from a Big Daddy.

"This could set someone back days if not even a week," he said.
