Popular Restaurant Desserts You Should Avoid Like The Plague

Popular Restaurant Desserts You Should Avoid Like The Plague


Everyone needs a sweet indulgence every once
in a while. There’s nothing wrong with a piece of chocolate cake or a cookie now and then,
and having a little sweet after a meal is a habit that can be hard to break. It seems
no matter how full someone is from their dinner, there’s always room for a bite of dessert.
But where you can get into tricky territory is ordering dessert when you’re out at a restaurant.
These dessert dishes might even be more gut-busting than the entire meal you had before them. Chili’s Skillet chocolate chip cookie This Chili’s treat is just one cookie baked
in a skillet, topped with a little ice cream. How bad could it be? Bad – shockingly bad.
Of its 1,420 calories, 640 are calories from fat, which means nearly half of the calories
in the whole thing come from the eye-popping 71 grams of fat. Add to that 116 grams of
sugar, and it may be more beneficial to eat the skillet the cookie is baked in. At least
it’s got iron. “You need you a skillet!” Perkins’ Peanut butter silk pie Oh, Perkins. Their pies look so innocent,
just a little filling, some whipped cream, nothing at all, right? Wrong. One slice of
peanut butter silk pie not only has 930 calories and 65 grams of fat, but that one measly slice
has 145 milligrams of cholesterol! That’s nearly half the daily average. So basically
you can have a slice of pie and then very little the rest of the day. If you’re still
not willing to avoid the pie, there are 12 grams of protein per slice so, you know, silver-lining. T.G.I. Friday’s Brownie Obsession Nothing good ever came from an obsession.
Even if it’s a warm brownie, topped with vanilla ice cream, caramel sauce and pecans, like
the one from T.G.I. Friday’s. “Don’t care how, I want it now.” If you need something to obsess over, how
about the fact that if you eat this sundae you’ll have consumed 153 grams of carbohydrates
and more than double the amount of saturated fat recommended in one day. Honestly, just
do yourself a favor and don’t get too obsessed with this dessert. The Cheesecake Factory’s double threat The chocolate truffle tower cake is by far
the worst non-cheesecake dessert to get at The Cheesecake Factory. Seven layers of cake,
seven layers of alternating Chocolate Truffle Cream and Chocolate Mousse, some frosting,
and a few mounds of whipped cream, just because. It has nearly 1,700 calories per serving.
It also serves up 206 grams of carbohydrates, nearly two-thirds of the daily recommended
amount. Unless you’re carbo-loading for a big race, do yourself a favor and skip this. [Crowd cheering] But it’s certainly not the only thing to avoid
while you’re at the Cheesecake Factory. Adam’s Peanut Butter Cup Fudge Ripple Cheesecake
really takes the cake. It contains 200 percent of your daily allowance of saturated fat,
topped off with Butterfingers and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, as well as caramel and
peanut butter. P. F. Chang’s Great Wall of Chocolate You probably don’t typically think “healthy”
when you think of chain Asian restaurants, but the Great Wall of Chocolate from P. F.
Chang’s is working on a whole new level. With 1,700 calories and 71 grams of fat, this is
one dessert that should serve as a meal itself. Oh, and you think because it’s a dessert,
you’re free from a lot of sodium? Think again! This massive slice of cake is loaded with
1,410 milligrams of sodium! Who knew a dessert so sweet could be so salty? Olive Garden’s zeppoli This offering of fried pillows of dough dusted
in powdered sugar from the Olive Garden is actually one of the least horrible-for-you
desserts on our list, but its 810 calories, 28 grams of fat, and 119 grams of carbohydrates
still make it one to avoid. Oh, and don’t forget to factor in the dipping sauces! “What’s in the sauce?” The raspberry sauce tacks on an additional
210 calories and 51 grams of carbohydrates, while the chocolate sauce adds an additional
220 calories, 3 grams of fat and 48 grams of carbohydrates. That makes it more than
twice the amount of carbohydrates in the tiramisu. And let’s be honest, didn’t you have enough
carbohydrates at dinner? California Pizza Kitchen’s butter cake There’s no way something called butter cake
wasn’t going to be a dessert to avoid! California Pizza Kitchen considers this dessert one of
its signature dishes. It has 73 grams of fat, 315 milligrams of cholesterol, and an astonishing
45 grams of saturated fat. And that’s all before you add the serving of vanilla Häagen-Dazs.
The ice cream brings the total fat to a mind-boggling 92 grams. To put it into perspective, that’s the same
amount of fat in almost three of California Pizza Kitchen’s Original BBQ chicken pizzas
with bacon, but the butter cake still has more saturated fat and cholesterol. That’s
almost impressive.

  1. I'll just make my on adult decisions. It's my body and my taste buds. I don't go out much and when I do I want to splurge. So you do you and I'll do me.

  2. The “Look at how unhealthy this dessert is!” factor was obvious and forced. Also, you trying to sound like you were cringing at the desserts just made the video cringy. I thought this was a channel on food facts? If you are so uneducated that you are shocked chocolate desserts at restaurants are high in calories and if everything you eat has to be on the top ten healthiest foods list for you to approve of it, I am so subscribed to the wrong channel. The food featured was great, but this video was a mistake and the title is ridiculous.

  3. Girl bye I thought this video was trying to tell us to avoid these because of how they are prepared or handled in restaurants not because of the fat & calories. ill continue to order whatever desserts I please.

  4. Love how you do a close up on the steak that has the melting butter on it, while saying the dessert is about as bad for you. Steak+butter=protein, healthy fat, little to no carbohydrates, and fills you up.

  5. Eh. Do you think we eat this everyday? It’s okay to have it once. Just not everyday. Mashed, you ruin everyone’s hopes and dreams.

  6. Fat is not the problem, the Wheat is the problem. The Sugar industry PAID the US gov't in the 60's to show the fat faux pas down our throats. Don't believe it!

  7. I've never heard of any of these desserts. I'm going to assume they're all meant to be shared by at least three people? Still bad, but okay for an occasional indulgence.

  8. "oh no, their is too much sugar in a freaking chocolate cake!" dude, all desserts are unhealthy thats why we don't eat them as much as regular food!

  9. You should just name all your videos "these foods have lots of calories" and not such clickbaity titles that suggest these foods are actually unsafe.

  10. I love an oatmega cookie warmed in the oven with some halotop ice cream. Half the calories of the chili's thing and tastes just as good.

  11. And click bait how pathetic. I figured this would be something like they are doing something unethical with it. Or it contains a toxic chemical. But no it's just "oh its too much fat." Or "omg its too much sugar" ITS DESERT! it's a treat its not meant to be healthy!

  12. i thought the food would be poisonous lmao cause of the title-

    but seriously who the hell cares about the calories and sugar? and at 2:28 that slice is SO big like nobody would or could eat that much unless they ate nothing else lol

    i just wanna know what foods are poisonous not unhealthy. like dessert is supposed to be SO healthy omg

    edit: I LOVE OLIVE GARDEN AND THEIR ZEPPOLI. SMH IM STILL EATING IT

  13. Really surprised none of Claim Jumper's items were featured here…like the Chocolate Motherlode Cake. 10" high, 6 layers of rich chocolate…you know what, let me just paste the menu item here (which includes the calorie count):

    "Six decadent layers of chocolate cake and rich
    chocolate fudge icing, topped with walnuts.
    Featured on the Food network as one of America’s
    “Top 5 Most Decadent Desserts” (3410 cal) "

    What they didn't mention is that there are chocolate chips mixed into the chocolate cake as well.

  14. Love the Perkins' peanut butter silk pie and usually get that for my free slice of pie on Monday's.

    Guess I'll stick with the apple or cherry now, DAMN!!!! 😏

  15. Desserts to avoid: ALL OF THEM. You should eat lettuce for the rest of your life and have nothing tasty or delicious or even GOOD food.

  16. At least people don’t eat all of the zeppoli or all of the sauce. It’s more of a sharing dessert. So it’s probably the best by far on this list.

  17. Dont demonize fat or carbs, just sugar literally the worst thing to eat aside from poison. But this is dessert so dont even talk about the health detriments. Talk about the healthy desserts :/

  18. How I hate these "everyone should want to be skinny" videos that act like if you pop one cookie in your mouth, you're going to become morbidly obese. Let them tell it, you should be having celery sticks and apple slices for dessert, and strive to be in accordance to the BMI scale, which essentially says that you having your rib cage popping out through your skin is completely healthy. Spare me the eurocentric scale of beauty that equals anorexia and bulimia 💯.

  19. So you mean to tell me you, this list has absolutely nothing to do with chemicals and process garbage being put in food… But is instead about fat, calories, and sugar?? What about aspartame and other harmful chemicals that I've actually been linked to things like cancers and Alzheimer's God forbid?? Why is this not that big a deal? Because it doesn't put fat on your bones? I get that obesity has been a struggle in this country, and there are so many people that have wanted to drag it like it's the plague, but when are we going to address being too skinny as being just as bad for you as being overweight? People already get how to eat healthy, and to have a truly balanced diet. But will you put up videos like this that suggest me having one meal from a restaurant a week can result in me becoming a diabetic or morbidly obese, as opposed to maybe making a video as to why a teenage girl watching a Victoria's Secret commercial and seeing those skinny ass models is probably a bad influence, just because you feel skinny equals healthy, this is what I see as truly wrong with some facets in this country. Image has truly been more important health. And that, ladies and gentleman, is a crock of BS 💯.

  20. All they need to do is offer much smaller portions. Problem solved.

    Or at the very least, the eater can be offered a nice doggie box. With warning not to inflict a real dog with it.

  21. I work at perkins…as soon as peanut butter silk pie was mentioned..I shouted at my screen " You shut your blasphemous whore mouth!!"…..and now i gotta somehow explain to my neighbor why their kids heard me shout that…from my open window….

  22. You don't have to eat the stuff every day. So get off their backs. If you think you can make better deserts go ahead show us what you can come up with!

  23. What’s the point of this video? Do you guys think people eat desserts thinking it’s healthy or something? If I’m at a damn restaurant then I’m not gonna worry about how much sugar my triple double chocolate cake has.

  24. You can go to walmart for your desserts instead. My faves are :
    Cheesy Doritos
    Tortilla chips and bean dip
    Naked juice drinks

  25. I never order dessert from these restaurants. I already know the meal I ate was crammed with much to much sodium, fat and calories to top it off with this garbage. And despite what previous commenters are saying, yes you need to avoid these desserts like the plague as they are half your recommended caloric intake. Want it anyway? Share it because even if you only eat half and bring the rest home, you'll finish it before going to bed.

  26. What the title makes it sound like: Eat these things and you will drop dead instantly.

    What the video says: Desserts from restaurants are full of fat, sugar, calories and thus are bad for your health. And water's wet.

  27. I agree on CPK Butter cake. Really, Its litterally butter on a stick on a cake but worse if
    you know what i mean and the Ice cream Just makes it worse.

  28. des·sert
    dəˈzərt
    noun
    the sweet course eaten at the end of a meal.
    "a dessert of chocolate mousse"

    It’s supposed to be sweet, and you know how you get it sweet? With fucking sugar. Jesus Christ, everyone already knows that desserts aren’t healthy. They just taste good and that’s why everyone loves them.

  29. Bruh…😂😂I’m still eating all of these desserts,it wouldn’t kill anyone if they had one slice or something,just don’t eat that dessert every day. Eat it in moderation,no reason to avoid it ;-;

  30. You go out to a restaurant to indulge that's the only reason why a person would go so who cares about their health benefits. Treat dessert like its suppose to be. A once a month indulgence 100000 calories once in a blue moon isn't something to lose sleep over. Avoid deserts if your favorite restaurants supplied by sysco.

  31. It is dessert! I did not know it was unhealthy? Thank you so much for letting us know. I will stop eating dessert for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!

  32. You know watching this video is not going to stop me from eating desserts if I'm craving a dessert I'm going to eat it I don't care how many calories or fat is in it

  33. you have not dissuaded me in the least.. you have only opened my eyes to the delicious desserts that I now want to try.
