Mr Freeze Pops Jumbo Nutritional Value

hey guys, what do you think of the nutritional value in these kind of things?



This is supposedly their nutritional breakdown

http://www.myfitnesspal.com/food/cal...e-jumbo-371245

and somebody on a forum said the following ...

"See those "Mr. Freeze" things?

They are LIQUID DEATH IN A TUBE.

Please think twice before you load up your freezer with those horrible things and give them to your kids thinking they are a harmless treat.

Give them an orange or apple. Pour some juice into a ice-cube tray, ANYTHING but the high high pure liquid sugar and food colour and artificial flavour that is a Mr. Freeze.

I don't like that I have to say this, but if a SINGLE person inclined to buy those things for kids stops and gives themselves a forehead-whack and a "what was I THINKING!?!" realization, it will have been worth it.

If you must keep treats around, consider the ice cream or chocolate bars... the pure liquid sugar in those Mr. Freeze is an express ticket to adult onset diabetes."



For all those that are knowledgeable in nutrition, do you think what he is saying is true? Sugar is only 23g out of the 150g and 100g of calories. I mean, it is not THAT bad to the form that it will cause diabetes, will it? The things is i've been eating these for a long time and a close friend's parents of mine took concern after sawing the above post, and send it to me and suggest that I refund them. I don't want to disrespect her but I just want to know the details before taking further actions.

Is what the poster saying true? thanks

zzz modern people are far too caught up with this nutritional bullshit, the 23g of sugar will be quickly worked off by a child today, unless of course the child sits in one spot all day playing a game while eating that stuff. With summer quickly coming, the amount of sweat a child produces and energy used while playing outside is more than enough to burn those measly 23g of sugar

It's not 100g of calories, it's 100 kcalories. Carbohydrates are 4 kcal per 1g. So 25g of sugar = 100 kcalories.

Feeding your kids stuff like these all the time is borderline child abuse. I have to pay the price for the rest of my life for all the junk I ate as a kid, and I'm sure many are in the same boat.

And the amount of calories is not the relevant part, it's the type of nutrition you are giving them. Yes kids can burn calories, but what you are doing is giving them huge blood sugar spikes all the time. That is fucking with their hormones in a very bad way.

The article is correct, but not exactly in the way they think it is.
the huge blood sugar spike supplies are used up so fast by kids, let me find the article on the amount of calories a kid burns in 1hour of play time, with that being said, i'm not saying they should eat this stuff instead of drinking water or eating a proper meal, but having 1 or 2 a day won't hurt

Hey Skinnypup, what about if this was eaten by a late adult like, 19-25 age, would this be any different than feeding it to kids?

a can of pop is worse than one of these things. for me though, the issue is teaching your kids that these are not the types of food that should be consumed frequently. when i was coming up, my folks fed me a lot of crap and to this day, i still have a hard time moderating my junk-food intake. i'm getting better at keeping away the bad stuff, but if i bring it home, it's not very long before there's nothing left. at my worst, i polished off a full box (36) of big turk's in 3 days.

When I was a kid I loved those kinds.. aren't they sweetened with HFCS?? No wonder they were addicting.

Looking back though.. I am ashamed at myself. If I knew what I knew now I would never touch those things.

I wonder if in 20 years, I'll look back at the same way of the things I'm eating now... perceiving it to be healthy.

Also, eating that amount of coloring can't be that good for you. The good old days man... my favorite color was blue and white! haha.

A can of pop is just as bad. I suppose a freezie once in a while (maybe a few times in the summer months) can't be harmful?

Once in a while is fine. But then you have a can of Coke once in a while. Then some candy once in a while. Then some tim hortons once in a while. Then some chocolate bars once in a while. Then some fries once in a while. Then a bag of chips once in a while. Then cereal every morning, and rice and potatoes every night. All of a sudden "once in a while" becomes huge blood sugar spikes every day, then comes shitty insulin sensetivity, then comes metabolic syndrome and adult onset diabetes.

That's not a bad idea, but I just eat tubs of plain yogurt at home. This whole spike of frozen yogurt is usually the result of a stroll around the beach type thing with the wife or family.

come on man, be real. Not every parent is a dumb fuck. I was raised to eat shit loads of vegetables, and meats. It all comes to cultural background. You probably had a lazy mom that fed you mcdonalds every day.
