Five Worst Chain Restaurant Meals

I never seem to tire of stories like THIS three minute segment from the Today Show this morning, 'naming and shaming' a handful of particularly high calorie menu items at some big-name chain restaurants.

These stories are usually good for an unintentionally funny line like, "Cheese is the new condiment" in this one.

But they can also be educational. This clip features a sandwich where fried mozzarella sticks (with slices of cheddar cheese on top) are placed (side by side, like logs) between two slices of grilled sourdough bread. Let this be a lesson to all of us: it's never going to be healthy to make a happy hour appetizer into a sandwich. 

That means you, jalapeno poppers. (Resist the urge to gentrify, for all our sakes.)
