Giant Shopping Cart coming down Tryon Street - It's like the Macy's day parade out here!

Food Babe’s Heart Attack


  • 1 Fruit Roll Up
  • 1 bag of Lay’s Carolina BBQ chips
  • 1 bag of Cheez Its
  • 1 container Turkey Hill Icecream
  • 1 Golden Grahams Cereal Bar
  • 1 Turkey Leg or Sausage
  • 1 Chicken or Steak Wrap (your choice)
  • 2 Krispy Kreme Doughnuts with a 1/4 lb of beef, cheese and bacon in between
  • Any Gyro (your choice)
  • Funnel Cake with chocolate sauce and powdered sugar
  • 1 bloody mary to wash this all down with!
  • ***Please note all ingredients are NOT organic***


  1. Consume any of the above on a regular basis
  2. Buy extra health and life insurance for you and your family
  3. Brace yourself for a very unhealthy and low quality life with many ailments
  4. Remember to enjoy your heart attack with a side of those butterfly fries
  5. Makes several servings

Fruit Roll Up Ingredients - Transfat me up and roll me down the street!
Free Chips! Don't be a Dip!
More "free" processed foods! Yeah!
Yum - Just want I want to start my day off with - something that will sit in my stomach and rot!
Sausage - my favorite "nitrate" filled food!
Only $7 dollars - It's a steal - Just do it.... for your first heart attack
Free Icecream!!!! Wow....uh oh.... not so fast....
Horrendous ingredients in this "Free" Icecream, I know it's hot out there y'all but please resist!
If you say it three times, they will come! Funnel Cakes! Funnel Cakes! Funnel Cakes!
Remember your choice - Chicken or Steak!
Excited to see the Banana! Something I can eat!.... well...almost....
Washing it all down with a Bloody Mary!
Red #40? Seriously - I thought tomatoes were all ready red.
You would never know it - but you can get something worthwhile here - it's just not listed! Ask for grilled vegetables with light olive oil, topped up lettuce and tomato and tzatziki sauce. I am not sure I trust the man in the video - I seriously doubt the grilled chicken is anti-biotic free.
Food Babe with Evil Elves and Mean Tigers - Marketing at it's best right here on Tryon Street Kids!

    If you have that attitude about it, why even go?
    You should stay at home and eat leaves.
