A study out of Colorado State University found which foods are most addictive, and-- unsurprisingly-- highly processed ones top the list.
The research also revealed some of the most addictive foods share characteristics with “drugs of abuse” in the way they’re consumed and absorbed by the body. Additionally, all the addictive foods are high in fat and cause a spike in blood sugar.
Here are the top 10 most addictive foods, according to the study.
- Ice cream
- French Fries
- Full-sugar sodas
