  • Jamba Juice’s Chocolate Moo'd Power Smoothie packs the same amount of sugar as two pints of ice cream—a noted departure from the juice giant’s usual healthy fare.
  • The In-N-Out Animal Style French Fries pile on cheese, onions, and thousand island dressing.
  • Domino's Pasta Bowl features a giant serving of pasta stuffed into an entire loaf of bread.
  • Jones Soda Holiday Drinks offer a taste bud-defying assortment of flavors such as “turkey and gravy.”
  • Denny's Meat Lovers Scramble jams a 200% daily dose of both cholesterol and sodium into a heaping plate of fried breakfast.
  • Long John Silver’s Langostino Lobster Bites are a big fried misnomer, using the meat of a crustacean similar to a hermit crab.
  • Applebee's Nachos Nuevos fail to do any justice to the beloved Mexican appetizer.
  • The Baskin Robbins Large Chocolate Oreo Shake is nothing if not convenient, cramming the caloric equivalent of 50 individual Oreos into a blended drink.
  • The Krispy Kreme Cheeseburger eschews the traditional bun for a glazed donut, for those bored with their usual Big Mac.
