In New York, a company that publishes nutritional information - on a website, on a pamplet... - must also publish the calories, fat, protein, and carbs on the main menu in the same font size as the price.

This becomes a problem with places like Starbucks and Coldstone where items are highly customizable. That means they cost the same, but have wide ranging nutritional value. Coldstone used to publish nutritional values, and you could select what you had and it would total the calories for you. But they can't publish nutritional information on their menu board... So they stopped providing nutritional information all together.

Good idea - bad implementation.

It doesn't look like they offer their nutrition information online.

Some places have the info, but don't post it because of the law in New York, like Cold Stone:

on_ingredients.html
So if you send an email to them, they may send you a nutritional info pamplet or something.

And then some places just don't have it.

Good luck!

Does anyone know how to get Quiznos nutrition information? I work right next to a Quiznos but cannot get any info like I can from the websites of many other fast food restaurants. By the way, the soups at Subway are really good and don't eat into your calorie or fat budget.
