The purpose of a versus challenge is to compare two like things.
Here is the first Versus Challenge: Find two similar desserts that you eat and compare the nutritional content. I compared Publix brand Moose Tracks Low Fat Frozen Yogurt against Breyers Smooth & Dreamy Half the Fat Dark Chocolate Velvet Ice Cream. Moose Tracks is one of my favorite icy treats. I was shopping at a different store that did not carry Moose Tracks anything, so I decided to buy the Breyers. I was surprised at the results.
Publix Moose Tracks: Calories: 150 Fat from Calories: 50 Fat: 5g total, 2g saturated fat Cholesterol: 5 mg Sodium: 90 mg Protein: 4g Carbs: 21g, 19g of sugars DRVs: Calcium: 15% A, C, and Iron: 0%
I was surprised at the difference in the fat and calorie content. I would have suspected that low fat frozen yogurt would be lower in fat than low fat ice cream. I was also surprised at the lower sugar content in the ice cream, too.
What can you compare and what did you find?
