This product was mentioned at the end of Super Size Me, along with McDonald's promoted healthy options.

McDonald's joined right in, sponsoring events that showed how health conscious they had become and creating a new line of premium salads. At the same time, however, they also masterminded one of their fattest sandwiches to date: The McGriddle, a pancake-wrapped creation that won my heart in Texas, but can pack as much fat as a Big Mac, and have more sugar than a pack of McDonald's cookies.
