Popcorn Shrimp and Cocktail Sauce wins! Next question - You'll go bananas for these frozen treats

If you chose the Popcorn Shrimp and Cocktail Sauce, then you found the real treasure! This snack combo contains a modest 295 calories, 16 grams of fat (still 25% of your daily value) and 4 grams of saturated fat. When it comes to food that's fried and fast, this isn't so bad. The Parmesan Fish Bites are higher calories and fat: 360 calories, 24 grams of fat (37% of your daily value) and 5 grams of saturated fat. Shiver me timbers! You can make any of Long John Silver's meals healthier by skimping on the tartar sauce--or skipping it altogether. This high-calorie condiment contains 100 calories and 9 fat grams per serving. Cocktail sauce is always a better choice, with zero grams of fat and only 25 calories.

Cold Stone Creamery "At the Cocoa Banana Cabana" (Like It size) - VS -
Dairy Queen Banana Split Blizzard (small)
If you like bananas and ice cream, then you'll love both of these frozen concoctions. Dairy Queen's famous blizzards combine that original DQ soft serve with almost any treat you can imagine. In this case, you'll get all the ingredients of a classic banana split, blended up with vanilla soft serve. A similar treat from Cold Stone is the "At the Cocoa Banana Cabana" which includes banana ice cream, mixed with yellow cake, fresh banana, fudge and whipped cream. Both of these sizes represent the smallest sizes available at each location. Make your pick for the banana treat with 200 fewer calories and less fat.
