Said Kmart Pie Maker fan Mandy: ‘Ok, I hate to be a bummer, but I just did the calorie count on the vanilla slice pies without icing - 265 calories.’
Which we have to admit, isn’t as bad as we thought! Given that the recommended daily calorie intake for women is 2,000 calories, as long as you enjoy the pies in moderation you’re all fine!
But Mandy’s post set off an avalanche of hilarious comments from fellow Kmart Pie Maker followers - and they’re too funny!
Said one: ‘Should never drop the ‘C’ word, especially on this page,’ Added another: ‘Calories schmellories!’ Said a third: ‘Why would you say such a horrible thing?!’
Other members offered advice on how to minimise the calories in the pies!
‘Sit them on a bed of lettuce they become salads, no calories,’ said one. Added another: ‘If you cut them in half before you eat them the calories escape!!!🤫’
Said one more: ‘Calories don't count when you can't see them.. turn the lights off and eat in the dark!’
Ha! Another had advice on how to make the most of the vanilla slice pie calorie revelation.
Said one: ‘1 for breakfast, lunch, dinner, supper = 1060 calories ...sounds like a good diet to me.😄’
Some members saw the revelation as a positive!
Said one: ‘That is not too bad actually!’ Added another: ‘Especially if you skip lunch and maybe dinner and just eat the Vanilla Slice!’
