CHICAGO, April 28 (UPI) -- A Chicago man using a "Create Your Taste" McDonald's kiosk created the largest possible burger, initially showing a price of $890.80 before adjusting to $24.89.

Mosha Tamssot posted a YouTube video showing how he used a Chicago McDonald's "Create Your Taste" kiosk to create a "Big Max" burger with two quarter-pound patties and the maximum amount of toppings.


The sandwich featured 10 slices of American cheese, 10 slices of white cheese, 10 slices of pepper jack cheese, 10 slices of bacon, and 10 servings each of pickles, red onions, guacamole, tortilla strips, lettuce, tomatoes, jalapenos, grilled onions, grilled mushrooms, mac special sauce, mayo, spicy mayo, sweet BBQ sauce, creamy garlic sauce, mustard and ketchup.

Tamssot chose the "make it a meal" option to add fries and a large Diet Coke to his order.

The diner took his slip from the kiosk to the cashier, who initially rang the order up as $890.80, but it was adjusted to $24.89 after store workers identified a "pricing bug in the system."

Tamssot's video shows McDonald's employees bring out his "Big Max," but some of the sides were stacked next to the sandwich because workers said it would not stand up on its own with the full order.


There was no word Tuesday on how many calories were in the "Big Max," but Tamssot placed it on a scale at his home "for science" and found it weighed 3.8 pounds.

Tamssot said he was unable to eat it in a single sitting.

"I ended up nibbling on it throughout the day. The best part was the bacon and tomato," he wrote in a YouTube comment.

"Create Your Taste is all about you making your very own gourmet burger. With over 30 delicious ingredients to choose from, you now have everything you need to make your burger, yours," McDonald's said on its website.
