As she suggests, those of us who "know better" will feel better about our choices after taking a close look at what Americans are being offered today...and those that are actually ingesting this crap...well...you really need to be making better choices!
Here is our short list of her most 'ridiculous creation' choices:
1. Friendly's Caramel Cinnamon Swirl French Toast: 2,090 calories, 57 whopping grams of FAT ~ 28 of those grams representing the deadly saturated fats, and 214 grams of sugar or 1 CUP of sugar!!!
~ This past May, Starbucks introduced a new size: the 916mL Trenta. The average capacity of the human stomach is 900mL. REALLY
??? This is the epitome of what is wrong with the American diet.
For anyone thinking about ordering a Trenta Caramel Frappuccino with whipped cream, know that it will provide you with a lethal dose of 830 calories (nearly 300 fat) and over 30 grams of fat (20gms saturated fat) ~ all in one cup! That's what we call disgusting. We hear it is bigger than a human stomach!!
What a way to spend your money!
Tara finishes with ~ "It's starting to look like a race to the bottom. Who can be stupider: the consumers who keep buying this stuff or the companies who dream up new ways to combine as much sugar, salt and fat into even more outrageous proportions?"
