This restaurant in Canada serves their poutine in giant punch bowls

It's hibernation season, and what will knock you out faster than five pounds of wholesome Canadian poutine served in a punchbowl? 

A chain called Leopold's Tavern is serving a monstrous concoction called the Punch Bowl Poutine, and just looking at it is clogging my arteries. 

It's easily one of the most outrageous poutines in the country, and can be found at Leo's locations in Regina, Saskatoon, Calgary, Warman, and Winnipeg. 

It's a recipe for a heart attack, or at the very least, heart burn: four pounds of potatoes and one pound of cheese curds, topped off with one entire litre of gravy. 

It costs a grand total of $49.75 for one of these bad boys, and if you finish the entire thing (please don't) you'll be inducted into Leo's Wall of Fame with the honorary title of 'that person who downed a punchbowl filled with poutine in one sitting.' 

If you really want to go the extra mile, opt for more seasonal (read: ridiculous) options like the Holiday Feast Punch Bowl Poutine, which comes with two turkey drums, cranberry, and cheese curds.
