Hungry Girl is here to help you avoid the worst of the worst this holiday season!
Dairy Queen's Merry Mint Chip Blizzard
(Large: 1180 calories, 41g fat, 183 net carbs)
We were absolutely HORRIFIED to learn how many calories and how much fat is in Dairy Queen's frightening frozen blended mint chip concoction. Try to avoid this one, even if you LOVE mint. By the way, we think Dreyer's Slow Churned Light Peppermint ice cream tastes just as good as this terrifying treat!
Starbucks Holiday Gingerbread Cake
(480 calories, 16g fat, 81 carbs)
This run-of-the-mill gingerbread cake is nothing special, but it is especially high in calories and carbs. In fact, we think this cake is quite possibly the world's most boring way to blow almost 500 calories. By the way, our thoughtful friends at Starbucks recommend pairing it with their 510 calorie, 29g of fat, 46 carb Grande size Eggnog Latte! Not quite the breakfast of champions, is it?
GOTTA SKIP IT!
Coldstone Creamery Pumpkin Ice Cream
(Gotta Have It! Size: 900 calories, 52g fat, 96 carbs)
We feel a little queasy just thinking about all the fat and calories in this massive "Gotta Have It!" tub of frozen fat. 900 calories?!? The only way you should be enjoying this decadent dessert is if you plan on sharing it with your extended family (and their pets).
Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, Pumpkin Spice Cake
(340 calories, 18g fat, 21 net carbs)
This tiny doughnut crams in large amounts of calories and fat. At about 4 bites (if you have a very small mouth), each one packs in over 4 grams of fat and about 90 calories. Eeeks!
NOT WORTH THE SPICE!
PIE IN THE THIGHS!
Marie Callender's Apple Pie
(1 Slice: 863 calories, 49g fat, 92 carbs)
Marie Callenders' pies are popular, and they taste good, but we can't for the life of us figure out why a slice of their apple pie contains 863 calories and almost 50g of fat. That's WAY more than even a Big Mac has! Personally, we'd rather have the burger (we're suckers for special sauce), not that we're suggesting you gobble up one of those either.
