These 47 American Groceries Are Possibly the Worst Foods You Can Put In Your Cart

Grocery shopping can already be an ordeal – especially if you have young kids in tow. But you may be making life harder for yourself even before you step through those electronic doors.

You see, your shopping list can be full of unhealthy stuff without you even realizing it! Yes, even the tasty treats that market themselves as low-fat or low-sugar. So, next time you head out to the store – with or without a snotty toddler – swerve these 40 foods. Your body will thank you for it.

47. Lay’s Sour Cream & Onion chips

Have you ever wondered what the nutritional breakdown is for a bag of potato chips? Well, ponder no more – although the results could put you off a little. Eat just 17 chips in a bag of Lay’s Sour Cream & Onion, and you’ve quickly wolfed down a whopping ten grams of fat and 160 calories. We did warn you!

46. Reduced-fat peanut butter

Surely a less fatty peanut butter isn’t that bad? Well, perhaps it is. Lindsey Pine told Reader’s Digest, “Reduced-fat peanut butter may save you a few grams of fat.

But the multiple types of added sugar and unnecessary fillers make it a very poor choice. So, choose real, natural-style peanut butter instead of the laboratory concoction.”

45. Hormel pepperoni

No pizza is complete without pepperoni, right? It’s absolutely delicious! But maybe you should consider leaving the tasty meat off your pie in the future.

Apparently, you see, just 30 grams – or around one ounce – of Hormel-brand pepperoni houses 14 grams of fat. Even that small amount contains roughly 150 calories, too.
