There are too many great dips out there to count on Kraft Cheez Whiz. Kraft has somehow extracted the worst ingredients and tried to sell it as a cheesy dip when it’s actually just a mixture of artificial flavors and syrups — a crafty move that could potentially have serious repercussions for casual dippers.
Stick to hummus or guacamole to sink your chips into, Store-bought ones usually have fewer ingredients and they can easily be made at home for much cheaper. Don’t fool us with the marketing. Just because you’re dipping a piece of broccoli in that cheese dip doesn’t mean it’s going to be any healthier. You might as well be dipping a piece of candy in there.
Bisquick Pancake Mixes
Who doesn't like pancakes? Whether your preference is blueberry or chocolate chip, pancakes represent an indulgent treat at best, or at worst, a part of your regular diet. We really hope that it's the latter. Because if it's the former, you are going to be in trouble really quickly.
When it comes to pancake mixes in America, there is a veritable platter of options to pick from, with Bisquick Pancake mix being the classic choice. But how well does it stack up to other mixes? Not very well. It's basically a box full of carbs with nothing but empty calories.
Peter Pan Peanut Butter
With an ingredients list that contains no less than four different types of oil, we're surprised they found space for peanuts. What's even more unbelievable, one serving contains more sodium and fat than a McDonald's small order of fries! This is peanut butter! Heck, peanuts are pretty good for you as they are packed with protein.
But for some reason, everything goes to waste when it's turned into that creamy stuff. As peanut butter evangelists, we know how important it is to get the good stuff and we should all look forward to a genuine peanut butter experience, not this oiled-down version!
Beef jerky might be marketing their food as a healthy snack, but it’s far, far from it. Each serving contains 700 milligrams of blood-pressure-raising sodium, which is the same you would find in four servings of chips! Sure, it's preserved, cured meat, which should mean that it's void of germs. Therefore, it must be healthy right? Right? Wrong!
Bursting with sodium, sugar, and MSG is not a good look, this kind of shameless excess is not what you should be seeing on the ingredients list of any food, especially not jerky. It might OK to have with some beers at a party, but don't make this a part of your daily ritual anytime soon.
Deep Dish Pizza
Deep dish pizza is no stranger to a heated debate, whether it is who does it better or how doughy it should be. But this time, we're talking about how incredibly overindulgent it is! If you're in Chicago anytime soon, we would recommend trying out this local delicacy. It's definitely worth experiencing once in your life.
Apart from the extra thick dough to support the buckets of cheese and salty toppings, the deep dish serves more than just your entire day's worth of calories, but a high dose of sodium and saturated fat. Not recommended if you care about your heart.
