Today we went to Dave and Busters and had a horrible experience when it came to finding nutritional information, specifically an accurate carb count for our newly T1D diagnosed daughter.
Using their link (https://www.daveandbusters.com/menus/nutrition) we were not able to get a good representation of the carbs that she would get with the kids “Goldfingers” and fries.
Reading the information, there is no indication of actual serving size and it is not clear what is included in the ‘servings’.
The Kids Goldfingers were listed to have 68g total carbs which is astronomical for fried chicken fingers. Their listing for ‘side of french fries’ has that listed at 105g carbs. There is no way that the meal had 173g of carbs. Using Culver’s as a comparison, a chicken tender kids meal with fries is 56g total. Even if we doubled a Culver’s meal it is only at 112g…not even close to 173 that Dave and Busters stated on their menu.
So my question is…
Am I crazy and doing something wrong here in calculating the carbs?
I believe I am calculating things correctly but always open to better understand things as we get used to this new way of life.
If I did calculate this correctly, have this be a warning about the accuracy of the info at D&B. Had we dosed insulin for what they had published, we would have had a world of problems. T1D is frustrating enough, running into stuff like this is just maddening.
