Dominos garlic and herb dip has more calories than two McDonalds cheeseburgers

Many fans of Domino's can't go without a bit of the food chain's garlic and herb dip to compliment their pizza.

However, people have been left horrified after finding out that the dip has more calories than two McDonald's cheeseburgers.

Domino's launched its super-sized garlic and herb dip back in 2015 after customers complained that the regular size pots were too small.

The big dip, which is a heft 100g, is four times as big as the standard 25g pots.

According to the nutritional information on the Domino's website, a 25g pot of the garlic and herb dip contains 169 calories.

That means the super-sized pit contains a whopping 675 calories.

A McDonald's cheeseburger is around 263 calories, so getting through a whole pot of the large Domino's dip is the same as eating two and a half burgers.

Obviously, the big dip is designed to be shared by more than one person, with Domino's marketing the sauce as recommended for four.

However, fans of the pizza brand were still shocked by the news, with some taking to Twitter to share their surprise.

One exclaimed: "As if the 100g pot of Domino's garlic and herb dip has 675 calories in it. Byeeeeeee."

While another added: "600 calories in a pot of Domino's garlic and herb dip – I AM SHOOK!!!"

Some weren't as bothered though, as one Domino's customer admitted: "Just found out Domino's garlic and herb dip has more calories than two McDonald’s cheese burgers. Still gonna slap it on my pizza tho like it’s the tears of Jesus (sic)."

A spokesperson for Domino’s, told The Sun: "Our Garlic & Herb Big Dip is great for sharing with family and friends, and we recommend each party size should serve at least four people. Single size pots are also available at 169 cals each.

"We’re committed to providing transparent nutritional information on our website and via our app, to enable customers to make informed decisions."
