Top 20 Worst Foods of 2009!

Rate: 5 Flag

I'm not easily shocked, but there's some truly scary stuff on this Top 20 list of the Worst Restaurant/Supermarket foods from Men's Health Magazine. Incredibly, there are so many bad things on there that donuts didn't even make the list! Who knew there were so many things worse than Krispy Kreme? Included on this list we have a Fish Taco dish that is the caloric equivalent of 43 Chicken McNuggets, and a Chinese noodle dish with the equivalent fat content of 42 Krispy Kreme donut holes!

I don't frequent any of the places on the list, but if I did happen upon a Macaroni Grill, it wouldn't be unheard of for me to order the spaghetti and meatballs, perhaps--until NOW that is!

I haven't eaten at a fast-food restaurant in decades. Now I remember why, apart from the terrible smell and food.
I don't eat out often but when I do, I like to enjoy myself. This is scary. I normally take 1/2 my meal home to eat the next day. I guess I need to make sure I do that ALL the time.
One of my new passions is fish tacos, and generally they're pretty healthy. But every once in a while, they'll arrive breaded and fried. I now have a much better idea of just how bad they really are.
Oh not my beloved Chinese food!
I love that list. But what can someone ordering a "Hardee’s Monster Biscuit" really expect?
Very true, Kerry. But I didn't realize one had to be so careful at PF Chang's, for example. (a place I've never been to, fyi!)
I don't even eat ice cream once a year, but if I were to go into a Baskin Robbins, and if I were to get a shake, the one they listed as THE WORST FOOD IN AMERICA would have been my choice. Yikes!
"Westernized" Asian food. What a crappy concept!
Hey Stella, sounds like a good future blog.
To be fair, an Awesome Blossom was meant for about 6 people, which makes it only 2. 17 doughnuts apiece. :)

I'm wondering just how you make spaghetti red sauce with that many calories, whew! You'd think the cream sauce would be worse.

Thanks for posting this, corporate food is one of my pet peeves. I especially love the Olive Garden, where even the "healthy" menu items have grease pooling in the dish.
Stellaa, my father-in-law works as a factory manager for such a food manufacturer. You'd be shocked at how many different restaurants, some of which brag about their "fresh" ingredients and have display cases of fresh meat, fish and veggies, actually get their food pre-cooked in little baggies from the same factory in Dallas.
