S'mores Royal Shake.... Guess how many calories?

Sunday, June 02, 2013

Well this is some Royal treat! Today my dh and I decided to stop by Dairy Queen and have a shake... Well I ordered what I thought would be very tasty! Is was ok... I asked the guy at the drive thru window for the nutritional info. He had it handy and gave me the chart! emoticon well this is what I found out www.dairyqueen.com/en/Me

emoticon over 1000 calories for this large shake ! Yikes

And for Weight Watchers ! Drum roll ........ 32 points emoticon

I only had half the shake. I gave the rest to my dh.. It was hard not to drink all of the shake... But I did stop at the half way mark..

I wonder what is in this shake that makes it so high in calories?
If only more people would ask about the nutrition when ordering, we would all be a little bit healthier.

Next time you go for fast food! Ask for the facts... The nutritional values... Save your heart and your life.

    Kudos to you for stopping at 1/2 the shake. I do this all the time. Some times a taste is just enough to satisfy that "craving" and save the waistline emoticon

    Great job having the willpower to stop at 1/2!!! I can't tempt myself with those things because I know I would eat it all!!

    that's a whole lot of calories! First of all try ordering a small next time, whether it's a shake, soda, fries, etc. I tend to do this. I tell them to hold the whip cream also. I'll order a kids value meal or a Jr meal. It has few calories and still satisfies my taste bud. I agree if we were to ask for the nutritional facts prior or even after we order it will help us not order it again or help us not eat ALL of it. =) Props to you for only drinking half the shake and then giving it to your hubby

    When I first joined SP and started tracking my food, I was FLOORED at just how many calories I was DRINKING! Between lattes, shakes, sodas, etc. the wasted calories blew my mind. If more people would realize this, I think the stores wouldn't be able to sell them anymore!

    What a great save - there is no reason you can't enjoy a shake occasionally but having half allowed you to enjoy the shake and stay healthier too. Great for YOU.

    I wish they all would post their calorie count of everything I buy at any of the quick service foods . even the ready to eat from like Kroger or wal-mart yeah a small cone is all I can afford in calorie`s for the day .

    And it would also save your body too. I think that it has HFCS in it along with other sugars too,. Just the chillers are over 300 calories and that should tell you something, they are loaded with something not good for your body
