Health.com: The 22 Worst Foods for Trans Fat

Cookies

Oreos phased out trans fat in 2006 after Kraft Foods was sued by the Campaign to Ban Partially Hydrogenated Oils. (The lawsuit was dismissed.) Chips Ahoy!, Nilla Wafers, and Girl Scout cookies also now fall below 0.5 grams per serving, although some still contain partially hydrogenated oils.

Check other store-bought cookies and cookie dough: Carr's ginger-lemon creme cookies contain 2 grams of trans fat per serving and Pillsbury's Ready To Bake cookies contain up to 2.5 grams of trans fat per serving. "Anything that can sit on a shelf or in a package for a while needs to be stabilized, which often means it's hydrogenated," Giancoli says.
