2. One 12-ounce can of Coke = 10 teaspoons of sugar
3. 1 medium movie popcorn (11 cups) with "butter topping" = 8 potatoes
4. 1 McDonald’s Big Mac and large fries = 1 cup of Crisco.
5. 1 pint of Vanilla Haagen-Dazs ice cream = 2/3 stick of butter
6. One 12 oz. cafe mocha = 1 Taco Bell soft taco
7. 1 Bagel with Cream Cheese = 2 ½ slices of pepperoni pizza

For better or worse, these truths will make you think about what you’re really eating when you decide to have the extra sprinkles on top, fries with that or a la mode. We’re not saying don’t eat these goodies, we’re just recommending that you think about what’s in them…and how much of them you really want
