Posted on | August 24, 2012 | 1 CommentThe doughnut (or donut) is type of sweet fried dough. They are typically shaped in rings or can be flattened and filled with flavourings such as jam, chocolate or fruit.
I actually don’t know any donut store that advertises how many calories are in each donut (for very obvious reasons). Therefore when I was asked to provide the calorie information for JCO donuts – I have to let everyone know that I looked on the internet. Sorry, but companies just don’t want to publish their recipes and portion sizes to enable people like me to calculate acquarate nutrition content.
I also used common sense. With a donut – the more donut there is, the more filling and the more icing – then the more calories it contains.
So, a simple glazed donut is ALWAYS going to contain less calories than a chocolate filled, chocolate glazed donut with slivered almonds!!
Keeping that in mind – here is my ESTIMATION FOR THE JCO DONUT NUTRITION INFORMATION:
- Glazzy = 220 calories
- Miss Green T = 230 calories
- Cheese Me Up = 240 calories
- Alcapone = 250 calories
- Coco Loco = 290 calories
- JCrown Oreo = 300 calories
- Heaven Berry = 300 calories
- Jcoccino =320 calories
- Why Nut = 340 calories
I suggest just keep walking whenever you see a donut store! These are a ‘once a year’ type treat, not a daily or weekly snack.
