The most unhealthy takeaway in Britain has been created by a chippy in Scotland.

The Crunchy Box contains a massive 7,000 calories and is packed with an array of fried foods.

It is made up of chips, two pizza crunches, fish, two sausages, two hamburgers, onion rings, chicken nuggets and fritters – all of which are battered and deep fried.

In case you’re thirsty after all of that, the box comes with a two-litre bottle of Irn-Bru.

The delicacy is being sold at East West Spice in Greenock, Scotland, for £10.

Bahadur Singh, the chippy’s manager, insisted the meal, which is also known as the Family Crunchy Box, is designed to be eaten by more than one person.

“I just thought it would be nice to combine the ideas and bring something which would appeal to everyone,” he said.

“We put the deal on and people seem to love it. Everything is cooked in fat but the dish is big enough for three or four people to share.

“It’s definitely for the family to eat. People think it’s a great deal.”

Another joked that the meal deal would be a “nice starter”.
