Makes You Want To Grab Some Takeout!!

Men's Health compiled a list of the 20 worst foods in America. I was shocked to see how many calories were in these top picks. Blarf!
When I realized most of these choices were from major chain restaurants in America, the first thing that popped into my head was the Bloomin' Onion, b/c those always just looked like a pile of sexy love handles topped with a delightful dipping sauce! Sure enough, that was ranked as the Worst Appetizer (but Chili's calls it a Awesome Blossom) 2,710 calories & 203 grams before your entree. Awesome! Blossom! During my research, let's just say that Urban Dictionary "went there" while telling us other definitions of an awesome blossom. This blog is PG-13! Hmmm, or maybe like PG-16..

Worst pizza? Uno's Classic Deep Dish Pizza. 2,310 cals.
Best pizza (in my eyes): Frozen Kashi 870 Calories. And they're tasty and you can split them with someone you love!

I *love* Kashi!!

Ugh, I was a Food Studies major in college and I can't even tell you some of the things I learned about calorie counts, oh, and food safety things in certain restaurants- ick.

I don't care how high caloric it is, nothing will hold me back from my bloomin onion! (ps it took me like 4 tries to spell onion. wtf?)

I have these cycles where I am obsessive about calories. I went to Subway a few weeks ago because I wanted something light for lunch and a 6" turkey sub is around 300ish calories and I got a cookie as a treat, ate the cookie and THEN check the calorie content. I will never have another Subway cookie again. It was almost as much as the sandwich, calorie wise. :(

Okay, sorry for the longest comment in the world!

Not the Spaghetti and Meatballs from Maccoroni Grill. Man! But at least I don't eat it in one sitting, or even two. Awesome Blossoms are salty and gross anyway.

Calories are only one of the bad things. What about additives?

The blooming onion sounds like it'll make your onion bloom to the size of a small person. Yikes!
