Interesting Food Info

I found this info on a message board that I frequent and thought it was worth passing along. Since I have been counting calories I have been amazed at how many calories are in some things.

Let's take a look.......

1/2 cup of Haagen-Dazs chocolate peanut butter ice cream has the same amount of fat as a McDonald's double cheeseburger.

1 package of Maxed out Turkey and Cheddar combo lunchables has the calorie equivalent of 15 chicken McNuggets.

1 Toll House ice cream chocolate chip cookie sandwich has the calorie equivalent of two slices of hand-tossed pepperoni pizza from Pizza Hut.

Marie Callender's creamy parmesan pot pie. First of all, they have the audacity to claim that the pie is two servings. That said, one pie has:
-the sodium equivalent of 8 small bags of potato chips
-the fat equivalent of 23 strips of bacon
-the calorie equivalent of 7 taco bell fresco beef tacos

A Twix candy bar has the same amount of saturated fat as 11 strips of bacon.

1 cup of Pasta Roni Alfredo has the same amount of sodium as 4 orders of French Fries at McDonald's.

Kraft organic mac and cheese is not better than the non-organic kind.

The cheese on Celeste pizza is not cheese. It is made of water and soybean oil.

A 16 ounce Sunny D has the sugar equivalent of 8 Eggo Choco-Nilla Flip Flop waffles (60 grams).

Arbys Melt has 303 cal 12 g fat vs the Roasted turkey and Swiss sandwich 708 cal 30g fat(you would think it would be the opposite)

Eat the Whopper Jr with onion rings 430cal 19g fat
Don't eat Cheeseburger with fries 560cal 29g fat

All of this and more can be found at
