The Worst Walmart Foods of 2020
Walmart is the ultimate "one-stop shopping" chain, so it's no surprise that many of us do our grocery shopping there. The low prices and wide selection of foods certainly don't hurt, either. This year, Walmart made some additions to its grocery department—some healthy and some… not so healthy. These new foods may sound delicious, but the nutrition facts show that they're just not worth it, especially when there are so many healthier options out there.

Krispy Kreme Mini Crullers
We love Krispy Kreme as much as the next person, but having these mini crullers in the house is just way too tempting. Just two add up to 250 calories, and they're not filling, so it'll be tough to not reach for another (or three).
Krispy Kreme Donut Bites
Like the crullers, these Krispy Kreme donut bites are full of empty calories. Every breakfast and snack food should be filling, but if you opt for donut bites, you'll be hungry an hour later.
Post Hostess Twinkie Breakfast Cereal
Twinkies aren't exactly known for their health benefits, but some experts say that the Hostess Twinkie Cereal is even unhealthier than the snack that inspired it. If you start your day with a bowl of this cereal, you'll have already consumed 30% of the daily recommendation for saturated fats and 32% of the daily recommendation for sugar. Who wants to start the day off like that?
Chocolate Pretzel Pop-Tarts
If you eat just two Chocolate Pretzel Pop-Tarts, you'll have already consumed more sugar than a woman should eat in a full day.
Cheetos Flamin' Hot Pepper Puffs
Sixty-two percent of the calories in these Cheetos are from fat, which is definitely not worth it for a snack food. Instead, try to eat healthy fats like peanut butter, avocados, olive oil, and fatty fish.
Pepsi with a Splash of Pineapple
Just one can of this new Pepsi drink contains nearly double the amount of sugar you should be consuming each day.
Dunkaroos Cookie Dough
After you make a batch of cookies, let's be real—you'll want to eat more than just one while they're fresh out of the oven. It's all well and good until you experience that sugar crash a few hours later because this dough is packed with sugar.
Kit Kat Mint Dark Chocolate
Just one bar is loaded with saturated fat—more than 1/3 of the amount that you should be consuming per day. Furthermore, each bar contains 19 grams of sugar, which is nearly your entire day's worth.
Great Value Unicorn Sparkle Ice Cream
Between the saturated fat and the sky-high sugar levels, unicorn ice cream is one trend to skip.
Famous Dave's Cornbread Mix
Cornbread is undeniably delicious—and notoriously unhealthy. Although the calorie count isn't high, that's definitely not the only thing we should be paying attention to when reading nutrition facts. Even though it's not a dessert, this cornbread mix is full of sugar.
Duncan Hines Mermaid Cake Cup Vanilla Cake Mix with Sprinkles
The Mermaid Cake Cups come in a four-pack, and just one container contains an entire day's worth of sugar.
Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuit Mix
These biscuits may not be high in calories, but they are high in sodium. Eating too much sodium is unhealthy in itself, and some studies have suggested that salty foods make you hungrier.
Ghiradelli Dark Melting Wafers
If you eat just one serving of these wafers, you'll have already consumed more than a third of the daily recommended saturated fat allowance. And that's not including whatever you dip into the chocolate.
Hormel Chili No Beans
As with many other foods on this list, it's not about the calories. Hormel's Chili No Beans is packed with saturated fat and sodium.
Monster Loca Moca Java Coffee and Energy Drink
This energy drink contains a massive amount of sugar—nearly the entire daily recommendation if you drink the whole can, which is technically two servings. Who wants to waste their sugar fix on one drink? We'd definitely rather save it for a sweet treat later in the day.
Campbell's Chunky New England Clam Chowder
Campbell's Soup is notorious for being high in sodium, and the clam chowder is no exception. It contains 33% of the daily recommendation for sodium.
