Ooh..loved this visual. It really makes you stop and think, doesn't it. I catch myself visualizing these things when I am tempted.

Last year I bet over a 2 or 3 week period during the holidays I drank 2 bottle of Baileys in my coffee and in ice cream drinks...then wondered how I gained 30 pounds...LOL

I looked it up around Thanksgiving when my dh bought a new bottle, and their website said it had 400+ calories PER OUNCE! :devil: OUCH! I didn't even smell it this year...a good whiff is probably worth a pound or so.

My sister made brownies last week, and she usually uses chocolate liqueur in them. But she didn't have any, so she used Bailey's ;). Sigh. I ate 4 (small) squares :dizzy:

Oh no, this made me remember how much I love Haagen Daaz Bailey's Irish Cream ice cream. Ah well. I can have it sometime, I just can't have it in the house :)

I thought Bailey's had 117ish calories per ounce???

Weird! We thought the Baileys web site said it was like 415 calories per ounce. I totally remember my husband and I figured that out to be around 200 calories a tablespoon. I just tried to go back to the baileys.com site to add a link, but I can't get in for some reason. we both must of misread it. I did a little looking and I found it on one calorie counter that said it was 117 calories per 1.3 oz serving (90 cal/oz.) and on Wikipedia it says it 144 calories per 1.5 oz (96 cal/oz.). If the calorie counter page is right that would mean it only has about 45 calories a tablespoon. Shucks, thats all I ever put in a cup of coffee. 2 delicious cups of coffee for under 100 calories. WHO KNEW?...YIPEEE. It's not so evil after all

415 Cals per ounce sounds extreme to me. It is made with heavy cream, so I'd expect it to be more than most liquors, even sugar based ones, but not quite that high.

I just went to the site and found the FAQ (http://www.baileys.com/us-en/footer/Faq.htm#answer1). Here you go.
The following is the nutritional table for a 1.5 oz serving of Baileys Original Irish Cream:

Baileys Statement of Average Analysis, per 1.5 oz. serving
Fat: 6.7g
Total Carbohydrate: 8.5g
Protein: 1.4g
Calories: 403

So at 403 per 1.5oz, that's 268 cals per oz. That sounds much more reasonable. :)

Thanks for looking that up before I made another pot of coffee :)
You know what is incredible? I've been looking around more and I found it listed as low as 72 calories per/oz. That is a huge difference!

Caloriecount.about.com and the dailyplate.com has it listed as 94 calories per 1.3oz serving. Which would be 72 calories an oz. I was getting pretty darn excited. If you had 3 or 4 baileys and coffee on their calculations you could be consuming up to 500 calories or more than what you though...YIKES.

Flax bread is great-- I don't know if I believe it's 50 cal/slice though!


I just posted the link on my twitter though, it was really interesting to see that visually!

The one that surprised me most was ketchup. I know it's basically just tomatoes and sugar, but still!
