A half cup of peanut butter cup froyo topped with two tablespoons crushed iced animal crackers might sound reasonable. But here’s the deal, speciality froyo flavors are sometimes double the calories of plain. Just a half cup of peanut butter cup weighs in with 188 calories and 2.5g fat. The cookies?

Two cookies (40 calories) crushed won’t put you over the edge, but larger servings could.
