Just in time for holiday shopping, Consumer Reports hit the malls to count calories at the food courts.
One Cinnabon Classic is loaded with 880 calories, roughly half of what a person should consume in an entire day.
At Starbucks, a grande Java Chip Frappuccino with whole milk and whipped cream has 460 calories and 18 grams of fat.
At Dunkin Donuts, a blueberry muffin may sound healthy, but it has 460 calories, too.
"If you're just having a snack, you should think about just having about 150 calories," said Consumer Reports' Maxine Siegel.
Options include Doc Popcorn's caramel corn. One cup as 130 calories.
A better beverage choice is the light banana berry smoothie at Jamba Juice. It has 170 calories and zero fat.
A cup of lowfat frozen yogurt can be a calorie minefield if you top it with peanut butter cups and M&M candy. Fruit toppings are a much healthier choice.
