WASHINGTON, July 23, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The "winners" of the 2018 Xtreme Eating Awards will be released at 6:00 a.m. EDT on Thursday, July 26, 2018. First conferred in 2007, the Xtreme Eating Awards highlight menu items from America's chain restaurants that are shockingly high in calories, saturated fat, sodium, and/or added sugar.

The 2018 awards include Worst Way to Start the Day, Worst Cinematic Snack, Least Creative Mashup, Worst Revival, and other categories.
