Fat or Fiction

While I was looking for calories information for cheese, I came at Fat or Fiction, a fun site that provides insightful nutritional information about your favorite naughty snacks, broken down bite by bite.

Christina Winkless, one of the site designers, says that this series of data visualisations is intended to bring to life the often overwhelming and complicated nutritional content in food. This site is not intended to make you feel guilty about your food habits but to help you know what you eat and make the oh-so-difficult choices between your guilty pleasures.



There are a few different types of snacks and drinks visualized here: cakes, cheese, alcoholic drinks, chocolate bars, chips and crackers, and various candies. And well, even if you're not interested in the nutritional information, the site design itself is worth a visit!
