Default Calorie Quiz

Without checking can you put these 5 foods in order from low to high calorie court per OZ?

And what unlisted food has more calories per oz than any of them?

Sugar
Cheese
butter
Olive Oil
Beef Steak

Check out the calorie count then post how many you had in the right order.

Olive Oil
butter
Sugar
Cheese
Beef Steak

I think olive oil has the highest calories per ounce? Usually I measure olive oil, butter and sugar by the tablespoon or teaspoon, but I'm certain that beef is the lowest.

Ahhh, milk chocolate. I thought you meant the highest of the 5 listed. Cheese is one of those things that it may or may not be in the right order depending on what kind we're talking about.

oh that's easy, fish oil (but it's not a "food", but then again, what oil is?).

You might be right with fish oil. I was thinking Lard but fish oil is as high! Mary
