Yessiree. The Chocolate Zuccotto Cake at Maggiano’s Little Italy is big on chocolate. And big, period.

Each slice is five inches tall and four inches wide and weighs just short of a pound. That helps explain why it delivers 1,820 calories (almost a day’s worth), 62 grams of saturated fat (a three-day load), and 26 teaspoons of added sugar (four days’ allowance) to your middle.

That’s roughly equal to an entire (eight-serving) Entenmann’s Chocolate Fudge Cake. Or 15 Hostess Ho Hos (may they rest in peace). And odds are, you just had dinner.
