    A annual list by the Center for Science in the Public Interest of unhealthy food featured Cheesecake Factory's Bruleed french toast in 2014.

    Is it true that what tastes good for you isn’t good for you? Well, it may be in this case.

    Cheesecake Factory’s maple-butter dripping Bruleed French Toast headlined this year’s Xtreme Eating list published by the Center for Science in the Public Interest.

    The 2,780-calorie-packed Sunday brunch dish comes with “extra thick slices of rustic french bread baked and grilled golden brown” then “topped with powdered sugar and served with maple-butter syrup with bacon or grilled ham.”

    If the calories weren’t belly bulging bad enough, it also has 93 grams of saturated fat, 2,230 milligrams of sodium and 24 teaspoons of sugar.

    The Washington-based center compares the dish to eating the equivalent of "14 slices of Aunt Jemima frozen Homestyle French Toast with 2 ½ (8 oz.) tubs of Kraft Philadelphia Original Cream Cheese Spread."

    Eating this sweet treat would mean consuming nearly one-and-a-half times the daily caloric intake as suggested by US Food and Drug Administration.

    Red Robin’s gourmet burgers, BJ’s pizza creations, Famous Dave’s “The Big Slab,” are just a few of the other mouth watering entrees that made the list.

    Since 2007, the Xtreme Eating Awards have been calling out the sad-fatty truth behind some of our favorite dishes.
