Hmmm...interesting....Not too suprising, though, except for the coca cola.

Well - it kind of puts things into a perspective of sorts. Not much cheese compared to fruit!

Balsamic vinegar is more calorie dense than coca cola? That's just hard to believe. Of course it's easier to consume two glasses of coca cola than 1/4 cup of vinegar so it's unlikely you could over consumer the vinegar. I just find it astounding!

A good balsamic vinegar is thick and syrupy, so I could see how that would make it more calorie dense.

Good point, fiberlover. It's a real eye opener. I just looked it up in the USDA nutrient database
1 cup of balsamic vinegar is 224 calories
1 cup of distilled vinegar is 43 calories.

At the tablespoon level, which is more comparable to a serving
Balsamic vinegar is 14 calories vs distilled at 3 calories.
So on a practical level, the difference doesn't really matter that much.
