    Disgusting Food

    Post by Trackaholic on Fri Jun 27, 2008 4:20 pm

    Ok I was bored and watching an episode of Diners Drive-Ins and Dives, and they came to this segment where they probably made the most unhealthy and fattening thing I could imagine. First, they took aa STICK of cheddar cheese, and by stick, I dont mean string cheese. I mean a stick of cheese slightly LARGER than your average butter stick. They then wrapped the stick of cheese in a sheet of raw green pepper, covered it in dough and DEEP FRIED IT.
    When tehy took it out, it looked like a massive corndog, except there was no hot dog in the middle, just a huge stick of cheddar cheese.

    Apperently they considered it an "Appetizer".

    I started mumbling aloud about how disgusting it was for a person to eat a stick of cheese deep fried like that, and my brother says "You know, not everyone wants to eat super healthy."

    So I said, "well yea of course, but we are not talking about health here, were talking about MODERATION for gods sake." An entire stick of fried cheese is just Bad all the way around.

    Then later on in the show, they started showing these entrees called "horseshoes" which were basically two slices of toast with butter, a layer of scrambled eggs on top, then a layer of cheese, a layer of home fries, a layer of relish, a layer of french fries, a layer of bacon, and then a layer of sausage and more cheese. It was considered an "entree" for ONE person. The dish was about half a foot tall!
    To add insult to injury, one customer on the show ordered their "horseshoe" with wheat toast, and he said "that makes it healthy".

    Yea, sure.

    It was absolutely revolting. I would be a liar if I said I did not like eating junk food. I love an occasional Big Mac, or a Frosty from wendy's. Utterly delicous. But seriously the real issue is moderation. You cant just eat alot of crap 24/7, its no wonder that we americans are the fattest country in the world. We don't seem to know what moderation is.

    Anyway, the deep fried cheese stick was pretty disgusting, anyone here know any other real disgusting foods?

    I had a friend who used to eat chocolate-covered potato chips. She offered me one once, and I laughed in her face. I couldn't believe that she had no problem eating a whole bag of these!

    Ever heard of poutine? It is the single leading cause of death among the Quebecois.

    First, take french fries (the greasier the better). Cover them liberally with cheese curds. Then, pour a good dose of gravy over the whole thing.

    It sounds disgusting, and it's terrible for you, however it really does taste good, so I have it as a treat once in a while, or bum a fry or two off my friends if they get it.

    lol one February vacation a few years ago my family went skiing at Mt Tremblant in Montreal, and we saw people eating poutine and we were like eeeeewww!!! that was the first time I ever heard of it. but, idk, I guess some people like it. At my school they tried to serve something like it, except worse: french fries drenched in nacho cheese. yuck. and people actually ate it!! there was a line for it!!!

    I used to drink so much soda before I started running...like 4 cans a day or something, and I never really thought about how unhealthy it was until i stopped running, and stopped drinking soda.
    anyways, i love the food channel...iron chef america ftw.

    I used to be so addicted to soda Rolling Eyes But now it makes me sick too, because I gave it up after I started reading a little bit on the health problems associated with all that sugar/caffeine/whatever else is in it. -shrug- Not much of a loss--I mostly drink milk anyway.
