    Free For Your Wallet, But Not Your Waistline

    dominios-pasta-lavaRemember those Domino’s bread bowl pasta meals I recently told you about?

    You know, the decadent pasta dishes served inside edible bowls of deep dish crust?  The ones that, on average, provide 1,400 calories, a day’s worth of sodium, and almost an entire day’s worth of saturated fat?

    Well, guess what?  If you order one between now and September 13, you get a chocolate lava crunch cake (pictured, left) for free!

    In other words, without paying a single cent your meal gets an additional:

    • 357 calories
    • 10 grams of saturated fat
    • 8 teaspoons of added sugar

    While we’re at it, let’s throw in a large soda and bring this one-meal total to 2,000 calories.  Burp.

    The Numbers Are In!

    143230_dominoslogoLast week I told you about Domino’s Bread Bowl Pastas: your choice of penee entree (including three-cheese mac and cheese) inside a bowl comprised of Domino’s pizza crust.

    At that time, calorie information was not available on the Domino’s website, and the four calls I made to their corporate headquarters garnered apologies from customer service representatives for not knowing that particular piece of information, and promises of it being available “soon.”

    Alas, Small Bites reader Eleonora Roversi alerted me to the appearance of this product’s calorie values.

    As I predicted in my original post, we are looking at four-digit calorie values for each of these bread bowls!

    The chicken alfredo bowl, for example, clocks in at:

    • 1400 calories
    • Slightly over a day’s worth of saturated fat
    • 90% of a day’s worth of sodium

    Then there’s the chicken carbomania carbonara, which adds up to:

    • 1,480 calories
    • 120% of a day’s worth of saturated fat
    • 96% of a day’s worth of sodium
    • Two thirds of the daily carbohydrate recommendation

    My next prediction: Domino’s pasta bread bowls will go the way of blue ketchup and New Coke.

    Say What?: Pasta… in a Bread Bowl?

    Behold the latest creation from Domino’s Pizza — penne pasta entrees… served in a bread bowl!

    As a matter of fact, the chain claims their “pasta is so good, you’ll devour the bowl.”

    Not too surprisingly, calorie information is yet to be posted, and the four calls I made to their corporate headquarters proved unsuccessful.

    It doesn’t take many brain cells, though, to figure out that items like chicken carbonara, Italian sausage marinara, chicken alfredo, pasta primavera, and three cheese mac-n-cheese nestled inside a thick round piece of bread are far from “light” options.

    I’m willing to bet we are dealing with 4-figure calorie values. As soon as the reveal occurs, I will post it on Small Bites.

    In the meantime, I’ll meditate and see if I can come up with the answer to: “What higher-up at Domino’s passionately believes Americans are clamoring for pasta in a bread bowl?”

    Numbers Game: Answer

    A slice of Domino’s deep dish cheese pizza contains 95 more calories than a slice of their thin crust cheese pizza.

    I purposefully posted this item to prove the point that even when faced with fast food options, there is always a healthier choice.

    If we’re talking about eating two slices of pizza, the deep dish variety contributes a total of 190 extra calories than a thin crust version!

    And what to do if your next office meeting offers nothing but deep dish pizza?

    Make another smart choice — leave the end crust (about 50 – 60 calories per slice) on your plate.

    Leave your guess in the “comments” section and come back on Tuesday for the answer.

    Say What?: The Savory, The Sweet, and the… Ugh

    Yesterday evening, after a grueling workout, I passed by a Domino’s. There’s usually nothing to see except for a few bored employees.

    However, yesterday was different. I couldn’t help but laugh when my eyes fixated on the poster you see on your right.

    If you’ve ever dreamt of a pile of Oreo bits and streams of vanilla sauce on sweet pizza crust, your processed food genie has granted your wish!

    Part of me wants to get one for taste-testing purposes. I can’t help but wonder — are there cold toppings on a hot crust? Hot toppings on a hot crust? Warm Oreos but cold vanilla sauce?

    Oh, what I would give to be a fly on the wall at these product development meetings…

    More importantly, though, here are the nutrition facts:

    One 10-inch pie contains 8 servings. Each serving breaks down like this:

    120 calories
    4 g fat
    1 g saturated fat
    8 g sugar (2 teaspoons)

    In reality, two people are probably splitting one, meaning they are each taking in 480 calories, 16 grams of fat, 4 grams of saturated fat, and a Coke can’s worth of sugar.

    As far as the ingredients go…. well, if you’re trying to only eat foods that contains a handful of ingredients, I’d suggest skipping this one.

    10″ THIN DESSERT STYLE CRUST:
    Flour (Wheat Flour, Malted Barley Flour), Water, Soybean Oil, Malt Extract, Chocolate Flavor (Natural and Artificial Flavors, Cocoa, Maltodextrin, Gum Acacia), Yeast, Dextrose, Leavening (Sodium Bicarbonate, Corn Starch, Monocalcium Phosphate), Calcium Propionate and Soy Lecithin

    VANILLA SAUCE: Water, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Corn Syrup, Sugar, Starch, Contains less than 2% of Salt, Titanium Dioxide, Cellulose Gel, Natural and Artificial Flavor, Polysorbate 60. Freshness preserved with Potassium Sorbate and Sodium Benzoate

    Oreo® Cookie Crumbs: Sugar, Enriched Flour (Wheat Flour, Niacin, Reduced Iron, Thiamine Mononitrate {Vitamin B1}, Riboflavin {Vitamin B2}, Folic Acid), Palm and/or High Oleic Canola and/or Soybean Oil, Cocoa (Processed with Alkali), High Fructose Corn Syrup, Baking Soda, Cornstarch, Salt, Soy Lecithin (Emulsifier), Vanillin (an Artificial Flavor), Chocolate

    WHITE ICING: Water, Corn Syrup, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Modified Corn Starch. Contains less than 2% of Each: Soybean Oil, Cellulose Gel, Mono and Diglycerides, Polysorbate 60, Natural and Artificial Flavor, Titanium Dioxide. Freshness Preserved with Sodium Benzoate and Potassium Sorbate. Contains Soy, Wheat (Product is manufactured in a facility that processes peanuts and tree nuts.)
