How Ice Cream Add-Ons Add Up

This article, entitled How Ice Cream Add-Ons Add Up comes from partner site Fat Fighter TV.

When you eat ice cream, do you top it off or eat it as is? I usually eat mine plain – straight up in my special pretty ice cream glass! But sometimes I will have some slivered almonds on top, add a banana to the mix, or have a scoop in a fresh waffle cone. Of course, all the tempting add-ons cost us calories and can quickly add up. Here’s the scoop on just how much…

  • 1 tablespoon hot fudge – 65 calories

  • 1 tablespoon caramel – 55 calories

  • 1 maraschino cherry – 10 calories

  • 2 tablespoons Reddi-whip – 15 calories

  • 1 tablespoon chopped walnuts – 50 calories

  • 1 tablespoon rainbow sprinkles – 60 calories

  • Cup cone – 15 calories

  • Sugar cone – 50 calories

  • Waffle cone – 160 calories

Yikes! That waffle cone really piles on the calories. Good thing I don’t have them very often…

How do your add-ons add up?
