Ben and Jerry’s Calorie Breakdown

b-j.jpg

     You’ve all seen it … you’re watching tv, someone gets dumped or has a horrible day; they pop open the freezer and start shoveling in the “Ben and Jerry’s” ice cream.  Somehow, I think we have been brainwashed by television, friends, and relatives to think that this kind of behavior is the “norm.”  Heck, even Carrie from “sex and the city” does it!  If she does it and still looks like a rail afterwards, it must be ok right??!!!  So what happens if you decide that it’s ok for you to give into the subliminal messaging on tv ?  Here is the calorie breakdown for B&J ….

1/2 cup (1/4 of the pint) Calories Fat (g) Cholesterol (mg) Carbs (g) Sugars (g) Protein (g)
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough 270 15 65 32 24 4
Cherry Garcia 250 14 60 26 22 4
Americone Dream 280 15 60 32 24 4
Mint Chocolate Chunk 270 17 65 26 24 4
Half Baked 280 14 50 34 26 5
Peanut Butter Cup 360 26 60 27 23 7
Vanilla Heath Bar Crunch 290 18 65 29 27 4
Chocolate Fudge Brownie 260 13 35 32 25 5
Butter Pecan 280 21 65 20 18 4
Creme Brulee 310 17 90 36 31 4
Karamel Sutra 270 14 50 32 27 4
Organic Strawberry 210 12 55 21 19 3
Organic Vanilla 220 14 65 18 16 3
Organic Sweet Cream & Cookies 250 15 60 18 19 4

OUCH!   Look at how much fat and calories are in just 1/2 a cup!!!!  If you are using the ice cream to numb your pain then you might need to buy a whole new wardrobe when you are done healing from that horrible break up or that stressful job!!!   If you are going to splurge then maybe eating the low fat Ben and Jerry’s will insure that you don’t lose your figure all together!!!!  Take a look….

    The light version is a WAY better choice.  However, don’t forget about the carbs.  If you are going to eat this many carbs at one time then try to do it before it gets dark.  Then, you will have time to burn off the excess carbs before you go to bed!
