tainly not healthy, and we know all of this. However, it’s clear that Google shows that, back to 2018, a lot of us were still attracted to try out the recent wave of the sugar-laden and calorie-dense foods from the fast food stops. Or at least some of us heard about these appealing goodies, and really wanted to try them out. But first, let’s learn how bad they are for us and how they can get you into a big trouble! Here they are – top 5 high-calorie fast foods everyone wanted to try in 2018
STARBUCKS UNICORN FRAPPUCCINO BLENDED CRÈME
Calories: 410 per 16 oz

So you’ve decided to talk drinks, and your major worry here is sugar. According to the owner of Jim White Fitness & Nutrition Studios, women are recommended to restrict their daily added-sugar intake to less than six teaspoons, while men should target about nine teaspoons or less.
However, the Unicorn Frappuccino is wholly packed with the sweet stuff. When you order a grande or medium size – it packs 14 teaspoons of sugar.
MCDONALD’S MAC JR.
Calories: 460 according to McDonald’s
According to WebMD, it’s suggested that adult women should consume 2,220 calories while adult men should consume 2,800 calories. The Mac Jr. is surely less bad than its big brother on this list, but the fast food itself still has a big number of calories, sodium, and fat that might not fill you up for long at all.
It’s packed with the same tasty ingredients as the Big Mac and Grand Mac with only one exception that it’s one single-layer type, owning 460 calories.
STARBUCKS CASCARA LATTE
Calories: 240 per 16 oz
Quite similar to other specialty coffee drinks nowadays, the Starbucks Cascara latte is highly packed with sugar. For 34 grams per one grande-sized drink, it’s loaded almost as much sugar as one 12-oz Coca-Cola. Aside from sugar, the calories and fat won’t be out of control – at least according to the standards.
If you love it, then order this with ½ of syrup, and then minus the topping that tastes sweet and sugary.
MCDONALD GRAND MAC
Calories: 860 according to McDonald’s
Another super-sized Big Mac that you just can’t miss this time – The Grand Mac is known to pack about 75% of the whole daily recommended calorie intake, but that happens before you decide to add more fries and drink. The Grand Mac is also loaded with 18 grams of saturated fat – nearly 150% of the daily-recommended value.
As a rule of thumb, the number of calories should be equal to the amount of sodium, but this burger’s sodium content doubles up its total calorie…yes, not so good.
TACO BELL TRIPLE DOUBLE CRUNCHWRAP
Calories: 700 according to FastFoodNutrition.org

We assume that this “Triple Double” version of Taco Bell means its heavy amounts of sodium, fat, and carbs. Sure enough, at a 1550 mg of sodium, this exceeds half of what is suggested daily in just one meal. Besides, the carb count here is considered excessive, especially this Crunchwrap consists of nearly a whole day’s worth of saturated fat. Don’t pick this up if you’ve got diabetes.
