Ignorance is bliss, and no where is that more applicable than when it comes to the food we eat. It’s no surprise that many guilty pleasures are far from ideal when it comes to your health, and if packaging listed the total calories of the food inside, you’d think twice about finishing off an entire bag of gummi bears in one sitting.
As Instagram’s Calorie Brands reveals, an entire bag of Oreos contains all of the daily recommended calories for an average adult, plus more fat than anyone really needs to consume in a 24-hour period.
And a bottle of Ketchup? That’s 760 calories in one fell swoop. It’s essentially like drowning your french fries in tomato-flavored syrup. But jars of peanut butter and Nutella weighing in at 4,704 and 4,520 calories, respectively? That’s just heart-breaking, because who doesn’t eat Nutella straight from the jar until it’s somehow all disappeared.
