Each year, the Center for Science in the Public Interest releases a list called the Xtreme Eating Awards, which features foods that are very high in calories and/or fats.  And it should come as no surprise that a restaurant with the word "cheesecake" in it's name would make the list.

The Center for Science in the Public Interest says that for the 21st time, The Cheesecake Factory has an entree on their list.  This year's honor goes to The Cheesecake Factory's Cinnamon Roll Pancakes.

Here are the item's stats that helped earn it a spot on the list:

  • 2,040 calories (That's all of your daily recommended calories in one meal);
  • 51 grams of saturated fat (2 1/2 days of what is recommended);
  • 2,950 mg of sodium (more than a day's worth or what is recommended);
  • 137 grams of sugar (3 days worth of added sugar).

According to the Center of Science in the Public Interest, "Two out of three American adults and one out of three children and teens are overweight or obese."

To be fair, The Cheesecake Factory does offer a SkinnyLicious® menu which features "more than 50 dishes with 590 calories or less."  The Cheesecake Factory has several locations in our area, including at Quaker Bridge Mall and Cherry Hill Mall.
