America's Worst Appetizers

I don't usually do posts that are just links to news items, but this is pretty harrowing. I know that none of my readers eat at the kinds of places mentioned in the article, but it should give you a better understanding of why Americans are so fat and otherwise unhealthy.

And the winner is:

Texas Cheese Fries w/ Jalapeno-Ranch Dressing
2,070 calories
160 g fat (73 g saturated)
3,730 mg sodium

Fat Equivalent: Like eating 16 Taco Bell Crunchy Tacos!

. . .The Texas Cheese Fries with jalapeno-ranch dressing has nearly two days’ worth of sodium in this one starter — and nearly four days’ worth of saturated fat.

That reminds me: I still haven't tried poutine.
