Most of us know that calorie counts can vary quite a bit from one drink to the next, which is presumably why we have light beers and white wine spritzers. But the calories in some drinks can vary significantly from, from a low of 50 calories in a spitzer to 350 + in a cooler. In fact, some coolers can contain as much as eight teaspoons of sugar in a single bottle. Earlier this summer the Globe and Mail’s dietitian wrote a column on patio weight gain caused by eating high fat and calorie appetizers with drinks. A more recent column takes a closer look at the actual calories in some of these drinks. Personally, I’m a salt lover, but if I were to consume 350 calories in sugar, I think I would prefer it be in the form of a great piece of dark Belgium chocolate.
