Taco Bell Nutrition Calculator

Okay, so every once in a while I do go to Taco Bell. It's cheap, and it's good! I usually get a 7-Layer burrito, a Beef Meximelt, and a Soft Taco Supreme (beef). Tonight, on a whim, I went to Taco Bell's web site. I looked up the nutritional value for this tasty combo of taco goodness, and was surprised to see the numbers. Here are just a few that surprised me:

1080 calories
51 grams fat (78% DV)
23 grams saturated fat (115% DV) ( ! )
100 mg cholesterol (33% DV)
2870 mg sodium (120% DV) ( ! )

Dude! That's some serious damage!

And this surprises you? Come on. Really. All of the truly fast food joints are like this. And JEEZ, you call all of that cheap?

I guess I should say that I wasn't really surprised, probably just more disappointed, that I shouldn't eat as much Taco Bell as I would like to.
