The New York Times Is On To Something

Want to know how much sugar you eat each day?

Then you should go to this awesome interactive quiz by The New York Times. Basically what you can do is go through your daily foods and see how much added sugar you consume.

They have a good variety of foods and it’s very accurate. It’s also mind blowing how much sugar there is in average foods. One of the coolest parts of this is that if you scroll down you see how you blew the sugar, you can see how much sugar is in each piece of food.

I had some members at Sugar Kills and Kiva try this and there was a big variety of amounts. Some had 10 grams, another had 46 grams, one even had as high as 151 grams of sugar! I personally got 25 grams of sugar, but something tells me that we all won’t follow that exactly.

DQ Whiteout!

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?

The True Halo

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.

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!

________________________________

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!

Wendy’s may not be the healthiest restaurant.

Did you know that one medium Frostie has 64 grams of sugar! Thats almost three times the amount of sugar your suppost to have in a day. So next time you go to Wendy’s, don’t worry about the burgers worry about the Frosties.

Häagen-Dazs – Pure Sugar Ice Cream

___________________________________________________________

Can you feel sweetness of Häagen-Dazs Vanilla Ice Cream? Mmm… I can feel sugar in it!

One-half cup of Häagen-Dazs Vanilla Ice cream contains 19 grams of sugar. That amount of sugar is almost 5/6 of your daily sugar! Did you think the sweetness of Häagen-Dazs is originally from vanilla? No, that’s wrong. The sweetness is originally from sugar. Although the container of Häagen-Dazs says “made like no other,” it is made like all other ice creams!

If you feel like you need a cup of Häagen-Dazs Vanilla Ice Cream, absolutely you should not, because a serving of Häagen-Dazs is 1/2 cup, and you are eating 38 grams of sugar! So remember that and help yourself.

Want a nice and cool refreshment in the hot afternoon sun?

If your being a good kid, and your Mom takes you out for Ice cream, tell her to NOT take you to Ben and Jerry’s, because 1 single cup of vanilla ice cream (8 fluid oz.) has 40 grams of sugar! That’s almost 2 days worth of sugar! So, next time you get an ice cream, pick something else besides a Ben and Jerry’s vanilla ice cream.

Klondike – The Original Vanilla Ice Cream Bar

______________________________

Mmmm… Klondike Bars. Don’t you love ’em?

Unfortunately, one Klondike Bar has 23 grams of sugar. That’s just one gram short of the maximum recommended daily sugar intake. If you have this after dinner, you would have almost certainly exceeded your daily amount in just one sitting.

Hot Fudge Sundae

__________________________________

This sundae is not sunny in a healthy world.

This McDonald’s sweet treat has 48 grams of sugar. That’s the maximum you should have in two days. So, unless you’re willing to starve yourself for two days, don’t eat a McDonald’s hot fudge sundae. Make the right decision and pass on it.
