    America's least-healthy foods

    Seems appropriate to post this on Independence Day weekend.

    50 Fattiest Foods in the States - Health.com

    Some of their choices seem like a cop out, but it's interesting nonetheless

    Deep dish pizza in Illinois? Out of all of Chicago you couldn't find something more original than that? I understand it is probably pretty bad but that seems pretty generic.


    It's all snark from here on out

    yeah, they kind of phoned some of them in. They pick Hardees for Missouri? I realize they're headquartered there, but they could have done a little more investigating.

    Fortunately not all of them are like that. Livermush? Pretty sure you won't be seeing that on a drive-thru menu any time soon.

    Re: America's least-healthy foods

    Out of all the choices at the Iowa State Fair, they chose the hot beef sundae? They didn't go with the any one of 10,000 fried options there? Overall, some of those just seemed disgusting. Who really wants to eat fried cow or pig brains?


    Edit: Okay, after some thought, I'd eat at least half the stuff on that list. The Wisconsin fried cheese curds or the Oklahoma chicken fried steak would top the list though.

    No KFC Double Down or IHOP Pancake stackers on the list, right?

    How about "The Farmer" at Pickle's Pub in Kamrar? Yes that's a tenderloin crowned with a 1/3rd pound cheeseburger.

    Fries look really good, but that cheese looks nasty.
