Whether you’re headed for fast food or a sit down meal, beware of scary dishes that can rack up your daily dose of calories, fat, and sodium—in one meal. Before leaving home, do your homework and decide what you want to order by perusing the restaurant's (or even fast food chain's) menu online. That way, you can avoid the temptation of impulse ordering a crazy-high-calorie dish or even mistakenly ordering something that seems healthy, but actually isn't. Most restuarants allow you to make substitutions and changes to menu items so consider asking for that salad without the fried wontons, and if they can serve the broccoli without all the butter. But there are some dishes that no amount of substitutions can save—in the spirit of Halloween, we've compiled 10 menu options from popular restaurants that are just plain frightening.
The calories, sodium, and bad-for-you stuff in these 10 dishes are what's scaring US this Halloween.
