Food for Thought - Fair food calories 9.30

It's a once-a-year experience for many, and you might actually be surprised to learn that it's not all bad. In addition to that though, what you think is good, most likely isn't.

 

• Corn-on-the-cob with butter

     About 200 calories

     12 grams of fat (mostly from the butter)

     Walk 2 miles at a moderate pace to burn off those kernels

 

• Texas-size Corn Dog (foot long corn dog) 

   About 400 calories

   24 grams of fat (about one-third of the recommended daily intake)

   4.3 miles to burn off that double dog

 

• Fried Cheese

   Almost 700 calories

   38 grams of fat

   One of those will take about 8.1 miles to work off

 

• Texas Twister Fries

   Nearly 1,500 calories

   57 grams of fat

   Start walking - this one will be about 18 miles worth of walking

 

• Smoked Turkey Leg

   1135 calories

   54 fat grams (that's a full day's fat supply)

   Roughly 15 miles to burn it off

 

And when it comes to the sweets...

• One Fried Oreo - 98 calories

• Cotton Candy - 150 calories

• Kettle Corn (3 cups) - 210 calories

• Frozen Banana w/chocolate - 240 calories
