20 Worst Foods in America, 2009
Can an appetizer with the caloric equivalent of 13 Krispy Kreme doughnuts be justified? No. The 2,710-calorie Awesome Blossom has been purged from Chili's menu--maybe the fat-drenched appetizer couldn't withstand the scrutiny of being named to the Eat This, Not That! list of the Worst Foods in America last year. No matter the reason, we applaud this waist-expanding starter's retirement.
The deep-fried onion wasn't the only thing to withdraw from last year's race--more than 10 other items from 2008's lineup have been removed from menus (or mysteriously had their calorie counts lowered). That's a step in the right direction, and it's good news for your waistline.
The bad news? There are plenty of frightening foods still at large across the country. After another year of menu investigation, we’ve come up with this year's list of the most calorie-laden, fat-riddled, sodium-swaddled, sugar-spiked dishes in America. Eat at your own risk.

Deuteronomy 18:10-12 (KJV)
10 There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, 11 or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. 12 For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord. (KJV)

WOW, interesting -
Outback's french fries with cheese and ranch dressing have almost 3000 calories!!!! Not that I ever had them, but they do sound very good!!!

The Eat This Not That series are wonderful, informative books. I just bought the ETNT for grocery store items. I find it more useful than the ETNT for resturants version only because I don't eat out all that much. There is a ETNT book for children too.

I absolutely love that book. It's one of the things that helped me open my eyes when I was losing weight. I didn't know there was one for children! What a great gift that would be for a mommy!

I love the blooming onion! Of course I don't eat the whole thing by myself. I think a lot of eating healthy is all about moderation. Very interesting read though.Happy New Years

This doesn't surprise me at all. People really should think about what goes into the food that they are ordering, even items that are labeled as "diet" or "healthy" are often filled with additives that aren't good for you.
Just looking at that list makes me crave some raw veggies and fresh fruit. Luckily, I have both in my fridge!

I carry around a AVOID THESE ADDITIVES card and check every product that I buy
I also try and buy GM Free foods as much as poss.
Its horrifying what goes into processed foods and the worst is the ones you think are healthy for you are actually doing you lots of harm
We don't have all those foods there but i just had to say OMFG to this
The Worst Food of 2009
Baskin Robbins Large Chocolate Oreo Shake
135 g fat (59 g saturated fat, 2.5 g trans fats)
263 g sugars
1,700 mg sodium
We didn’t think anything could be worse than Baskin Robbins' 2008 bombshell, the Heath Bar Shake. After all, it had more sugar (266 grams) than 20 bowls of Froot Loops, more calories (2,310) than 11 actual Heath Bars, and more ingredients (73) than you’ll find in most chemist labs. Rather than coming to their senses and removing it from the menu, they did themselves one worse and introduced this caloric catastrophe. It’s soiled with more than a day’s worth of calories and three days worth of saturated fat, and, worst of all, usually takes less than 10 minutes to sip through a straw.
Bold mine 2.5g trans fat holy mackerel that is disgusting
Along with All the other revolting ingredients !
More sugar than 20 bowls of fruit loops in their Health bar shake
Ugh I tell you its a ploy between manufacturers and pharmaceutical companies to make you sick > to make you well
UGH UGH UGH
