The Men’s Health ’20 worst foods in America 2009′ list has been released. After reading last years list I would have thought that the companies highlighted then would have tried to get their act together, but it seems that they are not phased by continuing toÂ providing some of the most calorie and fat filled foods available in the American market, but it seems that the same are turning up again in this years list.
Last years ‘WorstÂ Drink in America’ was Baskin Robbins perhaps inappropriately named ‘Large Heath Bar Shake’ which has a total of 2,310 calories. These come from the staggering 66 teaspoons of sugar which is put into each beverage, which uses an astronomical 73 different ingredients altogether giving you 108g fat (64g saturated).
This year the ice cream parlor chain, not satisfied with the title of ‘Worst drink’ Â has gone for the gold medal and won it, taking the ‘Worst Food in America 2009′ title. The ‘Large Chocolate Oreo Shake’ packs in 2,600 calories, 135 g fat (59 g saturated fat, 2.5 g trans fats) and 263g of sugar. That’s more than an entire days’ worth of calories and three days worth of fat!
Also hitting the list is restaurant chain Romanoâ€™s Macaroni Grill who have some how managed to ruin pasta, which I was quite sure was impossible to do. Their Spaghetti and Meatballs with Meat Sauce has three days worth of saturated fat and two days’ worth of salt, with just a little under a man’s daily recommended calorie intake at 2,430. Wow.
