Thomas’ Cranberry Swirl Bread

Tomas’ Cranberry Swirl bread

Nutrition: 1 slice, 130 calories, 2 g fat, 0 g saturated fat, 200 mg sodium, 26 g carbs, 1 g fiber, 8 g sugar, 3 g protein

A slice of sprouted grain bread has about 80 calories so we’re not quite sure how Thomas managed to shove 130 big ones into this fancy bread of his. There are so many better ways to spend all those calories. Wouldn’t you rather eat a cookie or maybe a big spoonful of almond butter?

Coffee-Mate Peppermint Mocha Liquid Creamer

Nutrition: 1 tbsp, 35 calories, 1.5 g fat, 0 g saturated fat, 5 mg sodium, 5 g sugar, 5 g carbs, 0 g protein

While generally speaking, coffee creamers have recently started to clean up their act, the same can’t be said for all of the limited-edition flavors. This peppermint mocha creamer, for example, is made with artery-clogging hydrogenated soybean oil (despite the fact that it claims to be trans-fat free) and stomach-irritating carrageenan. If you’re looking for a delicious holiday-themed way to flavor your coffee consider pouring something from Coffee-Mate’s Natural Bliss line instead. The cinnamon cream flavor is downright delicious and the pumpkin spice bottle is perfect for Thanksgiving and Christmas time.

Cadbury Holiday Candy Coated Solid Milk Chocolate Snowballs

Nutrition: 16 pieces, 190 calories, 8 g fat, 5 g saturated fat, 35 mg sodium, 28 g carbs, 1 g fiber, 27 g sugar, 3 g protein

Anyone who’s had the Easter version of these bad boys knows that they’re impossible to stop eating once you’ve started. And with an entire day’s worth of sugar in a single serving (not to mention tons of potentially dangerous additives), these treats can lead your belly down a slippery slope.

Swiss Miss Candy Cane with Peppermint Marshmallows

Nutrition: 1 envelope, 80 calories, 1 g fat, 1 g saturated fat, 105 mg sodium, 17 g carbs, < 1 g fiber, 12 g sugar, < 1 g protein

This isn’t the worst hot cocoa we’ve ever seen but it’s also far from the best. If you want to indulge in a cup of peppermint-flavored hot cocoa this season.

Peeps Hot Cocoa & Cream Marshmallow Chicks in White Fudge

Nutrition: 3 chicks, 150 calories, 3.5 g fat, 3 g saturated fat, 35 mg sodium, 30 g carbs, 0 g fiber, 27 g sugar, 1 g protein

The bulk of these Peeps are comprised of sugar, corn syrup, and gelatin, so are you really that surprised to learn that they’re on the Not That!

Archer Farms Rudolph’s Mix

Nutrition: 1 package, 270 calories, 13 g fat, 8 g saturated fat, 100 mg sodium, 38 g carbs, 1 g fiber, 26 g sugar, 4 g protein

Everything from hydrogenated oil to a rainbow of potentially dangerous food colorings seems to have found its way into this trail mix. If you don’t want to blow an entire day’s worth of sugar on a snack that offers next to no nutrition, you’ll definitely want to steer clear. If you really feel the need to dig in, at least diminish the damage a bit by mixing the snack with an equal amount of raw, unsalted nuts and dividing it into three or four servings.
