When it comes to dessert, for us it's a matter of timing and calories: When the craving hits, we just can’t wait. And when we go for it, we need to GO FOR IT.

We weeded through the most delicious desserts on fast food menus and narrowed them down to the tastiest in town — because we don’t want to waste calories on just an "OK" treat.

Wendy’s Frosty

Is it ice cream or is it a milkshake? Who cares! You can’t go wrong with a rich and creamy Wendy’s Frosty. While we love the Original Frosty, the chain expanded its Frosty collection to include a Frosty Parfait, a Frosty Shake and a Frosty Float.

Tip: Try it with an order of fries — it's the perfect combination of salty and sweet.

McDonald’s Oreo McFlurry

McDonald's calls Oreos “Ice cream’s favorite cookie.” We call them a part of our favorite fast food dessert. For the ultimate indulgence, try a McFlurry with a Rolo, M&M, Reese’s or Oreo topping. And, you might be surprised to discover the Oreo McFlurry actually made McDonald’s Favorites Under 400 Calorie Menu.

Tip: We also hear the Hot Fudge Sundae is a timeless classic.

Starbucks Cake Pops

Craving cake? Pull over for a Cake Pop! Each one of these petite portion-controlled treats weighs in at only 180 calories. And on September 4 — just in time for fall — they’re releasing a new flavor, the Salted Caramel Cake Pop. As for now, we’ll stick to our favorite flavor, Birthday Cake.

Jack in the Box Cinnamon Sugar Filled Churros

Don’t say we didn’t warn you — these are addictive. With each bite you’ll get a sweet, crispy and curious flavor. Packed inside these mini churros is enough sugar to satisfy even the sweetest sweet tooth.

Mrs. Fields Cookies

When all you want is an old-school chocolate chip cookie, we suggest heading to Mrs. Fields. Bakeries are located in most malls across the country, and trust us, your craving is worth driving the extra mile.

Burger King Vanilla Soft Serve

A Vanilla Soft Serve from Burger King is one of the few treats you can buy for just 50 cents. With that price, we see nothing boring about vanilla.

Tip: For something slightly more indulgent, we suggest trying Burger King's Hershey's Sundae Pie.
