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?

Death-Fil-A 101

I bet you’ve been to Chick-Fil-A and gotten a milkshake.

I also bet you don’t know the amount of sugar in any of the shakes. I’ll tell you:

  • 18 oz Chocolate milkshake: 111g
  • 18 oz Cookies and Cream milkshake: 100g
  • 18 oz Strawberry milkshake: 98g
  • 18 oz Vanilla milkshake: 95g

24 grams of sugar is the amount that your supposed to have in a day. All of these shakes are about 4-5 days worth of sugar. When you add them all up, you get a total of 404 grams of sugar, which equals 101 grams on average of sugar per shake. I hope next time you want a shake, you don’t choose Chick-Fil-A. Make a healthier choice.

McDonald’s Milkshake vs Wendy’s Frosty

copy-of-sugar-slide-basiccopy-of-sugar-slide-basic

______________________________________________________________

We all know that McDonald’s can make you Mcfat (getting fat from McDonald’s).

Their meals are very unhealthy. But now, its time to look at their deserts or more specifically, their milkshakes! We are going to compare a 12 oz McDonald’s chocolate triple thick “Death”shake with a 12 oz chocolate frosty from Wendy’s.

According to my calculations, McDonald’s triple thick milkshake is 7.28 times worse than Wendy’s frosty.

Which Disastrously drink would you consume? Anyone would obviously choose what’s not McDonald’s. Which ever one you think tastes good might not be what it seems.

________________________________

When you stop by at McDonalds you might stop by and get a tasty treat: the McFlurry.

An average human is supposed to consume 24 grams of sugar a day. The McFlurry has 64 grams of sugar which is 2.5 times as much sugar all in one McFlurry! Whenever you stop at McDonald’s think twice about the sweet treat!

Fanta Orange- what’s really in there

______________________________________

I don’t know about you, but when I go to a place such as Burger King, I like to get a soda. Preferably a nice, refreshing, Fanta Orange. Fortunately, I realized that this drink is way over the sugar limit. 2 Cups of Fanta Orange is 60 grams of sugar, which is way over the 24 grams of sugar limit. Even if I got one cup , which is pretty small (and the smallest size), I still would have consumed 30 grams of sugar.

McDonald’s Cheeseburger

_______________________________________________________

We all know that McDonald’s isn’t the healthiest restaurant but, did you know that their burgers actually have sugar in them?

Yes McDonald’s puts 7 grams of sugar in a cheeseburger.  So next time you go to McDonald’s you better be planning to put no ketchup on your burger because they stuff that stuff with sugar.

Super Sodas or Super Bad Sodas

__________________________________________

They are definitely super bad sodas!

With some staggering in the upper 30s and 40s, some of the sodas are diabetes in a can. We have found and compared 5 of the most common sodas; Pepsi, Coca-Cola, Sprite, Dr. Pepper, and Mountian Dew. The results were expectable but at the same time, outrageous. On average the sodas listed above have 40.706 grams of sugar.

Apple Salads Have Sugar Too?

Have you ever thought salads are healthy?

Well, Wendy’s salad sure looks healthy from all their advertisements. But Wendy’s Apple Pecan Chicken Salad with Pomegranate Vinaigrette Dressing has 40 grams of sugar. That’s almost double of what you should have in one day! Some of that sugar might be natural sugar from the apples, but still Wendy’s salads may not be healthy overall.

Dunkin’ Donuts vs. Krispy Kreme

_______________________________________________

You may think that there is no difference between Dunkin’ Donuts and Krispy Kreme, but you’re wrong.

Dunkin’ Donuts actually has 12 grams sugar in a glazed doughnut, but Krispy Kreme has 10 grams of sugar in a glazed doughnut. So next time your looking for some donuts, choose Krispy Kreme.

Dying to have a nice, cool refreshment on a hot day?

Try to pick up something else besides a Coca Cola Classic Slurpee, because that has 27 grams of sugar in a 12 ounce bottle!! That’s your whole days worth of sugar blown away, and part of your next days’ worth too!
