Nobody goes to Denny’s because it’s healthy! (#Blogathon)

The folks over at the Consumerists have an entry about how dangerous Denny’s food is:

Denny’s entrees are loaded with dangerous amounts of salt, according to a class action suit filed by the Center for Science in the Public Interest. The CDC recommends consuming no more than 1,500 milligrams of sodium each day, but some Denny’s entrees contain a whopping 5,500 milligrams.

No Denny’s dish contain less than 500 milligrams of sodium, and 75% of them contain more than the maximum recommended allowance

This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone who has ever eaten at a Denny’s. I love the taste of salt as so I tend to find Denny’s food to be better tasting than it probably really is, but I make point not to eat there too often because it is so salty. It’d probably be best not to ever eat there, but occasionally you find yourself awake at 2AM and hungry and it’s one of the few places still open. It’s a guilty pleasure which will probably lead to my death someday, but that damned sampler is just so tasty!
