Most fast food joints get a lot of flak for the food they serve and there is always news about worms in their burgers or flies in their soups and even severed fingers in their chilies’ but why do people keep going back? Why do people still flock to these fast food places even if they know the food will most probably just make them fat and sick?
The answer is very simple: fast food, despite what many people say, is appetizing. It also happens to be filling, cheap, and easy. At the end of a long and hard day at work nothing beats walking into a fast food joint and having a nice juicy burger and a bucket of fries. Now there are some delicious fast food out there that will fill you up and not make you feel too bad about the meal you just had but those aren’t what this is about. No, this is about decadent, delicious, humongous fast food meals that will tickle your taste buds, fill your belly, but pump you full of empty calories and shoot your cholesterol levels through the roof!
The Good and the Bad
The good news is, these meals are decadent and mouth-watering but the bad news is they have enough calories to meet daily requirements for 2 until 4 people. A healthy diet usually consists of about 2000 calories per day and those who want to lose weight may cut that down to 1500 so you can see why these foods may not be the best options. These are definitely not diet -friendly eats and should be avoided by anyone who is keeping a close eye on their health and figure. Feast your eyes below and be amazed at how these calorie-laden and high cholesterol fast food meals reach such unprecedented heights of deliciousness.
Pizza Hut Cheeseburger Crown Crust Pizza
Pizza is a little piece of heaven as it is and cheeseburgers are pretty much as perfect as you can get but what happens when the two get together? The folks at Pizza Hut have done just that and the result is that platter of richness and sin that burst with cheesy, salty, and savory flavors at every bite.
The Pizza Hut cheeseburger crown crust pizza is what it sounds like and yes, those are mini-cheeseburgers nestled into the crust and just to make sure they hit the nail on the head, they have placed melted cheese on the top of the pizza. To get an idea of just how unhealthy this pizza is, each slice contains more or less 500 calories- the mini burger clocks in at about 246 calories and the medium slice of pizza has about 230 calories and the whole thing has about 20 grams of fat. This is high cholesterol fast food at its best (or worst!)
Burger King New York Pizza Burger
What is it about fast food joints that make them want to take a good thing (pizza) and marry it to an even better thing (burgers) to come up with monstrosities that break the mold of what fast food ought to be? The folks at Burger King who came up with the New York Pizza burger call it “innovation” while the rest of the world can only stare in awe.
The Burger King New York Pizza Burger is another pizza-burger hybrid that simply breaks barriers. Just take a good look at that behemoth and imagine how good it probably tastes. This creation has 4 quarter-pound patties and topped with generous servings of mozzarella, pepperoni, and marinara sauce all stuffed inside 9 ½ inch buns. A myriad of flavors and textures gives this creation a monstrous punch of flavor that you will not soon forget. It also comes with 2500 calories and a dizzying 144 grams of fat – saying this is high cholesterol fast food is an understatement.

Jamba Juice Peanut Butter Moo’d Smoothie
As a way to turn to healthier lifestyle, people usually turn to smoothies and why not? These delicious and creamy concoctions usually have vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to keep people healthy and they are filling too! However, not all smoothies are cut from the same cloth and the Jamba Juice Peanut Butter Moo’d Smoothie is proof that not all smoothies are good.
No one would ever think of the Peanut Butter Moo’d smoothie as high cholesterol fast food especially when the company slogan, “Live Fruitfully” just screams healthy. But the Peanut Butter Moo’d smoothie is anything but since it clocks in at a shocking 1, 170 calories and contains more sugar than a full bag of cookies. Face it, anything that is supposed healthy is not supposed to have that much calories and sugar but it sure does taste amazing.
CPK Chicken Waldorf Salad with Blue Cheese Dressing
Salads are usually synonymous with healthy lifestyles but if you opt for the CPK Chicken Waldorf salad with blue cheese dressing because you want to eat healthy and lose weight, you may be better off ordering a Big Mac with small fries because while this salad tastes amazing, it is extremely calorie laden and clocks in a total of 1,570 calories per serving. For a salad, that is just wrong. That is more calories than most burgers, pastas, and cakes that you can find in fast food joints. There are other equally delicious salads in the CPK menu that you can go for and the best part is they will not nearly be as damaging or as fattening as this sneaky salad.
These delicious high calorie and high cholesterol fast food creations are full of flavor and they are quite amazing to behold and when eaten sparingly once every few months and shared among friends, they aren’t too bad. However, they are totally unhealthy and will do strange things to your weight and cholesterol levels so maybe they are best avoided anyway. There are other fast food meals that taste just as good that do not quite pack as much punch as these ones.
So do you dare try these fast food offerings or are you sticking to your guns and opting to eat healthy?
