Just how much have I lost?

i'm all about free

I love free as much as the next person. So when I got the free coupon from Mcdonalds for their new smoothie I got a little excited. But then I thought I should probably check out the calories before I get hooked on a new food that is bad for me. Just like those dag on funnel cake sticks from Burger King. Why did they have to invent them I ask?

Looks like the smoothie isn't that bad. 210 calories, 5 grams of fat, and 2 grams of protein.
However if you use your coupon for something else there like say the Mocha Frappe you will be in deep doo-doo. That lovely treat has 540 calories and 24 grams of fat. No wonder it tastes so dag on good.

Just thought I would share.


  1. Wow! The smoothie isn't that bad... I'm surprised. *Maria*-Blogger from "This one time at Band Camp..." Check out my blog at mybigfatbandgeeklife.blogspot.com

  2. Ive been wanting to try their new smoothie too, but i havent bc i didnt want to get hooked on them. They arent that bad at all. Good thing I dont like coffee lol. Those frapes... whew

  3. I had never even heard of these funnel cake sticks until now, I am so very tempted to go try them, but as that would defeat the purpose of your blog, I guess I will refrain. That smoothie really isnt bad, maybe you can adda scopp of protein and it would be a really good meal replacement :)
