A chicken sandwich near and dear to our taste buds has been labeled as one of the most unhealthy there is

Why are the most delicious meals in life so bad for us? I suppose that’s why we are GUILTY Eats! But are we ready to give up on this scrumptious chicken sandwich from foodie heaven?

She Finds has labeled one of my personal favorite meals as “so bad” and I don’t know how to feel about that. Let’s hear them out.

The source shares that, while all fast food is unhealthy in some way, there are some meals we should completely stay away from, and that includes the chicken sandwich from Popeyes!  Yeah, we told you this wasn’t good news.

How can we hate on Popeyes? Our mouths drool just thinking about one of their meals. Close your eyes and point anywhere on the menu, and I bet you picked something delicious.

Why is the Popeyes chicken sandwich so bad for you?

Supposedly, the Popeyes Chicken Sandwich may be the most popular, but it’s also the most unhealthy. “Awful,” the source calls it. Yikes.

The deep-fried chicken is “loaded with fat” from the battering, frying, mayo, and the bun. She Finds reports the sandwich has 42 grams of fat, 50 grams of carbs, and 1,443 milligrams of sodium. Okay, that is a lot of sodium even I have to say.

What do you think, Guilty Eaters? Is this news to you or did you already know what you were getting into? If it’s news to you, is it enough to keep you away from it, or did reading this just make you crave it?

What is your favorite guilty meal?
