The Cheesecake Factory's Bruleed French Toast tops the Xtreme Eating Awards list. - cspinet.org
Cheesecake Factory scores a hat trick in 2014 Xtreme Eating Awards.
The Cheesecake Factory won three awards in the 2014 edition of the Xtreme Eating Awards, an annual ranking that discerns the richest menu items in popular US restaurant chains, revealing calorie, fat and sodium content.
The chain’s 2,780-calorie custard-soaked, butter syrup-laden Bruléed French Toast topped the chain’s hat-trick list with its 93g of saturated fat, 2,230mg of sodium and 24 teaspoons of sugar.
If that sounds like weight gain on a plate, it was the richest of the Cheesecake Factory offerings, but not of the entire contest, making it a modest year for the chain, which usually takes the cake.
(The Cheesecake Factory also made it to last year’s Xtreme Eating Awards with its Bistro Shrimp Pasta which – looking deceptively healthy – weighed in at 3,120 calories, 89g of saturated fat and 1,090mg sodium.)
