WE GIVE YOU 231%. EVERYDAY: Thanks to the good people at Swansons, you can now try the "Hungry Man All Day Breakfast" -- otherwise known as The Unhealthiest Breakfast Ever. The article notes:
I know, I'm exaggerating things a little. People eat junk all the time, it's all about knowing how to moderate. I'm just a little thrown off here - I've never seen a company who uses the 'percentages based on a 2,000 calorie diet' chart actually admit that one serving of their stuff tallies in with 231% of your daily cholesterol allotment. If there exists a saving grace, the Hungry Man meal absolutely must be the best-tasting, magnificent food on the planet. I wasn't willing to find out the hard way, but let's explore the meal's appearance so we can try to gage [sic] how well it tastes....

How bad is it? You'll have to read the article.

By the way, that's 690 mg cholesterol. By way of comparison, four pieces of Original Recipe Kentucky Fried Chicken -- breast, thigh, wing and drumstick -- add up to "only" 445 mg cholesterol. To equal that amount of cholesterol in the morning, you'd have to eat three Egg McMuffins.
