It seems like you can’t turn around without being bombarded by someone telling you either the correct way to diet or that you need to try some new triple-decker cheeseburger these days, doesn’t it?
Well, call us crazy but it’s a lot more fun to indulge in that horribly greasy cheeseburger than to eat ahead of lettuce and call it a meal. Of course, sometimes people go a little bit overboard with their culinary concoctions and leave us wondering whether it’s actually worth it.
That’s because people all around the world are coming up with foods that we feel would give us a heart attack just from looking at them, let alone actually devouring them.
Basically, one plate full of these absurdly rich, fatty, and oh so delicious foods would give you the calorie equivalent of a few good days of eating three square meals. Here are some of the sweetest and most savory foods that are guaranteed to make your mouth water and your pants size grow.
