If you are counting your calories, you might want to sit down for this. Based on a family of four and having one half cup of soft serve ice cream at each stop you make, your family will consume, are you ready for this, 6,876 calories. But keep in mind that is a projected total for the family. So, have another sundae and watch the calorie wheel spin out of contol.
