Denny's has forayed into the realm of high-calorie extreme foods with their latest addition, the Fried Cheese Melt.

The sandwich, included in its updated “$2, $4, $6, $8” value menu, is a paradox in the same way as the KFC Double Down chicken sandwich—while cheap, it carries a high price tag of calories.

The Denny's sandwich jams four deep-fried mozzarella sticks between slices of American cheese and is grilled between two sourdough bread slices. It is served with fries and marinara sauce, according to TheEater.com.

It's reasonably priced at $4 but delivers a hefty 895 calories. It will appear at Denny's restaurant chains on Aug. 24.

The sandwich joins other extreme meals introduced by fast food chains in the past year, including the aforementioned Double Down and the Carl's Junior Footlong Cheeseburger.
