Viral food video asks: What do 2000 calories look like?

Counting calories can be a real drag … or it can be clever and cute and comical. 

A musical video, posted by BuzzFeed, takes this mundane matter and makes it nearly merry. At the same time, the food images prompt viewers to evaluate food choices pictorially.

If you're counting calories, would you rather eat a couple of gooey cinnamon rolls or a giant pile of carrots? (Don’t answer that.)

The video concept originated with a Wise Geek article, titled “What Does 200 Calories Look Like?” BuzzFeed uploaded the video to YouTube on March 25.

Within a couple of hours, hundreds of thousands of YouTube users watched the mini movie, which runs just under two minutes (1:52).

Nearly 4,000 “likes” piled up faster than you can say, "Make that a double cheeseburger with extra cheese and deep-fried onions."

Take a look:
Color me curious.

I have to wonder. How many Oreo Cookies add up to 2000 calories? How about peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, bagel dogs, and Klondike Bars?

And, with Easter just around the corner, how do Jelly Belly jelly beans, Solid milk chocolate bunny rabbits, and Marshmallow Peeps stack up against that 2,000-calorie pile of carrots?
