When it comes to satisfying your sugar cravings on the go, fast food chains offer a wide range of tempting desserts. However, many of these popular treats are loaded with sugar, unhealthy fats, and excess calories.
Here’s a list of the top 4 worst fast food desserts, as revealed by dietitians.
McDonald’s M&M’s McFlurry
The M&M’s McFlurry is one of the unhealthiest desserts you can order. This sweet treat is packed with sugar, unhealthy fats (including saturated fat), and a significant number of calories. Sadly, many ice cream-based desserts feature additional toppings like candy and chocolate, which only enhances their unhealthy reputation.
Burger King Chocolate Oreo Shake
The Chocolate Oreo Shake from Burger King is a sugar bomb you should definitely avoid. With 674 calories and 91 grams of sugar, it “features” more calories than recommended for regular meals. This shake also exceeds the daily recommended sugar intake set by The American Heart Association.
Arby’s Jamocha Shake
Arby’s shakes are packed calories, sugar, and fat. According to dietitians, Arby’s Jamocha Shake packs a whopping 700 calories, 97 grams of sugar, and 13 grams of saturated fat, making it a dessert to completely avoid or enjoy in serious moderation.
Sonic 5-Piece Cinnabon Cinnasticks
The warm cinnamon roll pastries served at Cinnabon might seem like an appealing dessert, but they can quickly lead to calorie overload. These treats contain about 800 calories and 50 grams of fat in one serving, which is more fat than individuals should consume in a single meal.
Satisfy Your Sweet Cravings Differently
It’s important to be mindful of the high calorie, sugar, and fat content in many fast-food desserts. Consider opting for healthier alternatives or only indulging in moderation.
