Calories of Alcoholic Drinks Displayed as Calories of Food

BuzzFeed-Drinks-Food-VideoBet you thought you were being virtuous with that healthy glass of anti-oxidant filled red wine. Well think again. You can thank a horrifying, if entertaining, video that lets you know how many liquid calories you’re really consuming, and then compares those numbers to their food equivalents.


The video, entitled “How Much Food Do You Drink” has some pretty interesting stats.  A Manhattan is equal to a slice of pizza, but a vodka soda will only set you back 10 pretzels.  Unfortunately for me, a margarita is equal to a Taco Bell Taco, which seeing as I usually eat tacos with my tequila, probably isn’t doing much good for my waistline.  I should probably stick with a Bloody Mary, which is equivalent to a stalk of broccoli.

Do you see your favorite drink in the video? How do you feel about your liquid calorie intake revealed? Watch the video, and let us know what you think in the comments below.

Pig’s feet, frog’s legs, and tripe are delicious child’s play. Which isn’t to say she doesn’t love a great steak. Because she does. With frites, please.
