BADVERTISING: DAIRY QUEEN’S TRIPLE BERRY JULIUS – MORE SUGAR THAN A GALLON OF BERRIES!

Dr. Yoni Freedhoff – Weighty Matters

Good lord!Looking at the nutrition breakdown of Dairy Queen’s new “Julius Original” smoothies that the ad up above suggests are fruits I couldn’t help but make some comparisons.Their large “Triple Berry” smoothie? At 952 calories (with no “boosts”) it has the caloric equivalent of nearly two large Dairy Queen ┬áchocolate sundaes and with 48 teaspoons of sugar (a full cup), it packs the sugar equivalent of more than a gallon of actual mixed berries (and nearly 3.5x their calories).

So no Dairy Queen, your smoothies don’t give you a “fruit” department, but they do give you a badvertising one.
