On vacation I was surprised when we walked into a California In-N-Out to find all the calories posted on the menu.
I usually get the burger protein style (meaning wrapped in lettuce instead of a bun), but I never knew how many calories it was saving me. It was a bunch. The posted calories also made me reconsider what I ordered for the kids. (Walsh asked for the double-double which weighed in at 670 calories! That’s like a third to a fourth of all the calories he should have in one day!)
Later in the trip we ate a Panda Express and seeing the calories completely changed what I ordered. It was great to feel like I made a healthier choice.
California has a state law that requires restaurants with more than 20 locations to post calories on the menu.
I found online that a federal law about posting calories was supposed to go into effect but I don’t think it did because we don’t have it where I live and I don’t
