FAT TREND #2:
Restaurants Sneaking Extra Fat into Their Food
The next time you see
“stuffed” on a menu, think “gobs of molten cheese poised to inflate my waistline.”
Consider these debuts: Domino’s Stuffed Cheesy Bread (150 calories per piece),
Dunkin' Donuts' Stuffed Breadsticks (200 calories per piece), and Burger King’s
limited-release Jalapeno & Cheese Stuffed Steakhouse burger (930 calories
with a small order of fries). And that's in addition to the 1,510-calorie
Provolone-Stuffed Meatballs with Fettuccine that Applebee's released last year!
If these things continue to sell, expect to see more imitators in 2012. As a
general rule, if you see “stuffed,” stay away.
