Canned Beets v. Ice Cream

January 25, 2011

This is rather off-topic for for this on-again, off-again blog, but I just discovered– much to my chagrin while making a pot of borscht–that one can of Safeway pickled beets contains more sugar than one serving of Ben & Jerry’s Chocolate Fudge Brownie ice cream.



The beets’ can says “4g of sugar” per serving — but there are, evidently, 9 servings per can!  So 9  times 4g = 36g of sugar.








Compared to the ice cream:  27g of sugar per serving…but 4 servings per pint.  So, you can tear through 1/4th of a Ben & Jerry’s pint and still consume less sugar than Safeway’s beets.  And, evidently, get more Vitamin A and Iron in your daily diet!



And I made some 12 servings of soup.   Blech.
