It's that time of year again. Time for Hungry Girl to shine a light on some freakishly frightening foods that are WAY scarier than any ghost, goblin or creature of the night. Happy Halloween!
Fry, Oh Why?!
A DEEP FRIED NIGHTMARE!
Are you more tempted to cheat on your diet with salty, fried foods, or with sweet chocolate? Turns out you can do both at once. That's cause deep fried Snickers bars are turning up at Fairs, Carnivals, and Farmers Markets everywhere. An ooey-gooey, chocolatey Snickers bar is plunged into a vat of bubbling oil and comes out golden, crispy, and with around 450 calories and 30g of fat. Um, ewww. That doesn't even sound good to us.
Think ice cream sundaes and banana splits are the only things to be afraid of at Dairy Queen? Think again. Dairy Queen's Chili 'n' Cheese Footlong Hot Dog is just as scary as The Queen's desserts -- maybe even more so. Each disastrous dog contains a disturbing 710 calories, and 47g of fat (18 of which are saturated). And that's before you order any fries or onion rings on the side. Yikes! We recommend that you revolt against this "Queen" and start making your chili cheese dogs at home using 97% FF Hebrew National Hot Dogs, Kraft Free Singles and Boca Chili.
Don't, for one second, think you're being "good" or "healthy" by ordering fish at Burger King. BK's "Big Fish" sandwich clocks in at 630 calories and 30 grams offat. What makes that sandwich even more unnerving is the fact that people think eating fish at Burger King is automatically better for you than eating a burger. That is CLEARLY not the case. Oh, and by the way, this fried mess on a bun also contains a whopping 1340 mg of sodium. Not exactly what we'd call a good catch...
Alright, we all know nachos are NOT diet-friendly foods. Still, we were absolutely shocked to find out that Baja Fresh's Charbroiled Steak Nachos contain an insane 2110 calories and 115gof fat! Is that even possible? This basket of deep fried chips topped with steak, beans, two kinds of cheeses, sour cream, guacamole and pico de gallo is a greasy, calorie-infested meal that would make anyone scream in horror.
High Steaks Chips
Anyone who thinks /x-tad-bigger>The Cheesecake Factory's Carrot Cake/x-tad-bigger> is any better for you than their cheesecake is in for a surprise. Each slab of the stuff contains /x-tad-bigger>1560 calories and 84 grams of fa/x-tad-bigger>t. We've never seen such carrot abuse in our lives.
BLUNDER DOWN UNDER
Have you seen Outback's Chocolate Thunder From Down Under dessert? This monstrous hunk of chocolatey freakishness contains a whopping 1220 calories and 78 grams of fat! Skip this one, unless you plan on bringing a busload filled with people -- and hippos to share it with you.
Thunder & Frightening!
CHEW ON THIS: Pssst...Heads up! Tomorrow, October 28th, is National Chocolate Day. /x-tad-bigger>Here's/x-tad-bigger> how to celebrate guilt-free.
