The 12 Calorie Bombs of Christmas
- 1 Minute Read
Celebrating the calories in favorite holiday treats with song.
Sung to the tune of "The 12 Days of Christmas."
On the 12th Day of Christmas I counted calories
12 cups of eggnog (4000)
11 sugar cookies (1400)
10 candy canes (550)
9 chocolate truffles (1000)
8 squares of fudge (1000)
7 chocolate rum balls (500)
6 peppermint lattes (1500)
5 ginger bread men (500)
4 cups of cocoa (600)
3 Mince pies (3800)
2 fruit cakes (3000)
and a figgy pudding topped with whipped cream (5000)
That's 22,850 calories, give or take a few. Technically not enough to gain that theoretical 10 lbs. everyone is supposed to pack on over the holidays. But enough to derail any diet.
The Take Away Message: enjoy your favorite holiday treats, but don't let them take over your life.Holidays / Parties->Winter Holiday Season
