The amount of sugar in this delicious Blizzard will certainly give you chills.  

So, we’ve made blogs about about Dairy Queen Blizzards in the past, but we’ve realized that we’ve only covered the mini-sized one. Recently, we have found how much sugars are in a large blizzard, and it will give you some mad frostbite.

There is a whopping 111 grams of sugar in a Large Oreo Blizzard (17.6 oz.) There is also 1016 calories, which will take about 5 hours of walking to burn off! You guys may love your blizzards but is it really worth 4 and a half days of sugar AND half of your daily calories?

In the past we have written about deadly, tasty ice cream, but nothing could prepare us for this…

This ice cream, this scrumptious ice cream, has only about 4 grams of sugar per serving, depending of the flavor. You also get 6 grams of protein, 20% of your daily fiber, and only 240-280 calories.

That is much better than the killer Ben and Jerry’s ice cream.

I did a taste test and compared it to normal ice cream. It’s taste is almost identical, and the texture was quite accurate. I think it’s safe to say it’s pretty close to normal ice cream. So if you happen to see it at the store, try it instead of your normal ice cream.

What Does Sugar Actually Do To Your Body?

Since the beginning of this blog, we have talked about sugar….

But it turns out that we have never actually have talked about the negative affects of sugar on your body. We partnered with the people at Retro Goblin to create this video to inform people about what sugar does on your body.

So that explains what sugar does to your body. Again a big thanks to Retro Goblin for partnering with us to create this video!

We’re Back!!!

After three and a half weeks off we are back. 

We’ve had a nice break, but are ready to start posting again. Just a reminder that this is the last quarter before the end of our school year. After that our 8th graders will be moving on and we will have a fresh batch of 6th graders. Keeping on living that healthy life!

See You Later!

It’s that time again that us Killzers kick back, put our feet up, and enjoy the amazing weather outside. We’ll be gone for about 3 weeks, then we’ll be back to making some new content. Feel free to leave a comment about something you’d like to see a post abouts. Thanks always,

Binge Eating Ben and Jerrys

I know we have done other posts on Ben and Jerry’s but the only flavor we have compared is Vanilla. Now it is time to compare more flavors… let’s get into it!

So the flavors we will be comparing are Chocolate Fudge, Strawberry Cheesecake, Cherry Garcia, Chocolate, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Peanut Butter, and Phish Food.

(I know what you are thinking, PHISH FOOD?!? Look it up, it’s seems good.)

Since we are not made of cash, we cannot actually buy all of the flavors — but we used our trusty calorieking.com to do our research. Here we go!

Chocolate Fudge has 27 grams of sugar per serving.

Strawberry Cheesecake has 22 grams of sugar per serving.

Cherry Garcia has 23 grams of sugar per serving.

Plain Chocolate has 21 grams of sugar per serving.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough has 25 grams of sugar per serving.

Peanut Butter has 24 grams of sugar per serving.

Phish Food has 28 grams of sugar per serving.

All of those average out to around 24.3 grams per serving, which equals a half of a cup. That means with one scoop of ice cream, you will fulfill all of daily sugar needs. That is ridiculous!

But the thing is everybody knows that ice cream is bad for you but they keep eating it anyways.

If your ice cream addiction is going through the roof, come back on Monday for a new inventive way to keep the taste but not the sugar!

Nutella, the Nutty One

Nutella and toast, Nutella on a spoon, Nutella with an apple, the list goes on and on.

It is no lie that Nutella goes with practically everything. Many people would think that Nutella is a nutritious part of a nutritious breakfast. I mean it IS made with hazelnuts.

The problem with that logic is that in one serving of Nutella there are 20 grams of sugar! That is practically your whole days worth of sugar spread out on your morning toast. That is outrageous!

So next time you get out of bed craving that nutty spread, think twice.

Have you ever thought that Oreo Thins are just a marketing gimmick?

Well if you think that, you are correct.

One Oreo thin has 3 grams of sugar.  One Original Oreo has 3.3 grams of sugar. The result surprised us. We thought that the one Oreo Thin would have a lot less sugar than a regular Oreo. The difference is only 0.3 grams though.

The so CLIFF BARS

Have you ever thought of a Chocolate Chip Cliff Bar as a “healthy” snack?

Well, it actually has more than half of your daily sugar value. ONE Chocolate Chip Cliff Bar has 18 grams of added sugar. So if you eat 2 Cliff Bars, you have gone over the daily amount of sugar that doctors recommend that you eat — 24 grams.

So your healthy snack is not so healthy after all.
