World's Most Dangerous Piece of Cake has 5x the Calories & Sugar of BK's Bacon Sundae!



Amazing the hoopla over Burger King's bacon sundae when really it's quite a bore.

Sure it's got 510 calories and 15 teaspoons of sugar, and yes of course it has bacon, but compared with what else is out there nutritional travesty wise this one's a sleeper.

Here are 10 fast food desserts that make a bacon sundae look downright healthy including what I'm billing as the world's most dangerous piece of cake:

  1. McDonald's Large Rolo McFlurry - 830 calories, 26 teaspoons of sugar.
  2. Denny's Oreo Blender Blaster - 890 calories, 19.25 teaspoons of sugar
  3. Coldstone Creamery Gotta Have It Oreo Creme Ice Cream - 1,060 calories, 22.75 teaspoons of sugar
  4. Cinnabon Pecanbon - 1,080 calories, 19 teaspoons of sugar
  5. Dairy Queen Banana Cream Pie Blizzard - 1,090 calories, 29 teaspoons of sugar
  6. Chili's Chocolate Chip Paradise Pie - 1,250 calories, 40.75 teaspoons of sugar
  7. Applebee's Chocolate Chip Cookie Sundae - 1,550 calories, 52 teaspoons of sugar
  8. Outback Steakhouse Chocolate Thunder From Down Under - 1,554 calories, 33 teaspoons of sugar
  9. Cheesecake Factory Chocolate Tower Truffle Cake - 1,679 calories, 51.5 teaspoons of sugar
  10. The Keg Carrot Cake a la mode - 2,344 calories, 65 teaspoons of sugar (just 7 teaspoons shy of 1.5 CUPS)!

  1. Re: the Keg carrot cake: Ironic when originally carrot cake was conceived of as a sort of "healthy" dessert because it included fruits & veggies and didn't use butter. Also, I've never heard of serving carrot cake "a la mode" before.

  2. The Keg's carrot cake also has 1548.9mg of sodium! I could only find one photo of this monstrosity here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/crisbella/6860758329/

    At least at most of these restaurants the calories are available so patrons should know what they're getting themselves into. For the Keg's carrot cake it should be served as a shared dessert because I can't imagine anyone being able to eat it without feeling sick afterwards.

  4. Restaurant chain desserts are usually ridiculous in size. We sometimes order one for our family of four to share (if we get dessert at all) and that is more than enough.

  5. What I don't get it, how the HELL do you get 2,344 calories into a piece of carrot cake? That's the engineering equivalent of clowns in a Beetle, times a hundred.

  6. I would think that 1.5cups of sugar wouldn't fit inside 1 slice of carrot cake. It's carrot cake, not a TARDIS! It sounds like a whole carrot cake to me. Is a whole carrot cake served as 1 portion in the US? If so, Lol!

      Carrots do contain their own sugar so it counts toward total sugar in product.

  7. Minor quibble from the math major ... 65 tsp of sugar is actually 7 teaspoons short of 1.5 cups (which is 72 teaspoons). So it's really a little more than 2 tablespoons short.

    But it's still a sugar and fat bomb no matter the math!

    1. Thanks Beth! My brain didn't convert the 7 teaspoon difference....I was counting difference and then dividing by 4. Wrote the post late at night. Updated.

    Interesting...since the Keg does not offer Carrot Cake ! Neither in Canada or the USA. Always check your sources I guess.

    love a good carrot cake. i am not even sure what keg is other than it sounds like they have a lot of beer. as for all those other high calorie items listed. never had them. i am just about too scared to eat in any type of restaurant unless i know exactly what is in it. LOL! reading labels and so many have greatly improved my quick reading skills :) eventually you know what to throw in the cart or not. (stay healthy)

  12. I thought I was a pretty good baker, but I have yet to fit 1.5 cups of sugar in a single piece of cake.

    The cake is not served without icing. The icing has copious amounts of sugar with that cream cheese. So you would have to add the icing sugar as well as the cake sugar to get the total. Also, if the Cheesecake Factory is an indication of the industry most places have at least 1/2 inch of icing on the top and 1/4 inch of icing between layers (usually 3).
