Mississippi Mud Pie
Ingredients: Some recipes call for cream cheese, others for ice cream. But no matter how you slice it, this pie is a mash-up of rich chocolate, cream, butter and sugar.
Fat content: A commercially prepared version at nationwide chain Cosi clocks in at 35 grams of fat per serving. Homemade versions will vary between 24 and 38 grams.
With decadent dining choices, such as this, we see why Mississippi holds the highest obesity rate in the country at 32.5 percent.
