Burger Bonanza! Best Bets Vs. Meaty Monstrosities...
If you EVER eat burgers out, you NEED to take a look at this fairly comprehensive list of nutritionals from a bazillion restaurant chains (fast food and sit-down). It may shock you. It may FREAK you out. And it may pleasantly surprise you (though that last one isn't likely). In any case, you have to find out how many calories are in our country's popular hamburgers. Here are a few highlights (or should we say, lowlights)...
Chili's Smokehouse Bacon Triple-The-Cheese Big Mouth Burger without side of Jalapeño-Ranch Dressing - 1,840 calories!!!
Johnny Rockets Bacon Double Cheddar Burger - 1,400 calories!!!
T.G.I. Friday's Jack Daniel's Burger - 1,540 calories!!!
Red Robin A.1. Peppercorn Burger - 1,440 calories!!!
Okay, has your curiosity been piqued? Click here. And one little bit of info. When we crave a burger, we opt for a single from In-N-Out -- protein style with grilled onions, and ketchup & mustard instead of the regular sauce. That burger only has 160 calories -- so low that we've been known to swallow two at once (taking the time to chew them, of course!).
If you're a fan of Sharon's Sorbet and you haven't checked the labels in a while, you may be surprised to learn that several of the fruit-flavored sorbets -- which used to have 70 - 90 calories per half-cup serving -- now have 80 - 130 calories. According to the folks at Sharon's, they reformulated their sorbets months ago to make them sweeter and to improve the texture... thus the extra calories. But we also learned they're planning to reformulate AGAIN very soon, making the switch from corn syrup to brown rice syrup -- and they suspect calorie counts may go back down a bit! We'll keep you updated. ***Hey, Starbucks morning visitors! The Bucks wants you back so badly, they'll give you a deal by offering you a $2 beverage after 2PM!
