Question of the Day: What's your favorite fast food guilty pleasure?

A lot of people think that looking at the calorie counts posted by food chains is a smart way to order the healthiest dish when dining out.

However, a new study by Tufts University nutrition researchers shows that nearly one out of five restaurant dishes has at least 100 calories more than what the restaurants state on their websites.

The underestimated foods came from several restaurant chains, including Chipotle Mexican Grill, Olive Garden, Boston Market and Outback Steak House.

American Morning wants to know: What's your favorite fast food guilty pleasure?

Post your response here. Your answer could be included in this morning's broadcast.

    No doubt, the In 'N Out Double-Double. If you've ever lived in California or even stepped foot here, you know that this is a magical place with delicious bounty.

    Poutine, a most excellent combination of french fries, gravy, and cheese. The best can be found in provinces Quebec and New Brunswick. Being from Maine, I can confirm it goes great with lobster.
