So about 2 weeks ago i go into tesco and i see mr kipling cake
a pack of 6 little slices of cake (snack size) reduced to 90 pence
So i tried it, and i went through the whole packet so easily.. one slice is like a biscuit it goes in half a second, and before you know it you are
through all 6. It was so yum yum too!!!
The next day i bought another pack, the day after another, before i know it a week later ive gone through a whole pack of 6 every day, but i think
to myself meh its only small slices.
Anyway, this whole week till yesturday i bought myself a pack again - its cheap and it looks like small slices, and tastes goregous!
However yesturday i looked at the calories and was horrified
Its 140 calories per slice, but a slice is tiny, it is like the size of a wafer, there is no way you will have just one, you will want another one,
and before you know it you have all 6 and that is 6 x 140 almost 900 calories! half my daily allowance, not to mention super high sugar levels.
Yesturday was a nightmare to break out of the tasty buying cakey habit but i broke it, and today i had no urge to buy it,
but i think had i not wised up and checked this out, i could have found myself piling on a ton of weight through eating something that i didnt bat an
My warning to everyone is be careful, when you see these like 150 calorie warnings, they are usually just per portion (which calculates the minimum
slice), it doesnt take into account you are going to want several and you can sometimes have your entire daily allowance on what you think is just a
Hope this was useful!
