how many calories are in a mcdonalds large sweet tea without ice?

by Iced Coffee on September 19, 2011

Hey there peeps! I have a question on Sweet Iced Tea Calorieshow many calories are in a mcdonalds large sweet tea without ice? i went on their site and it says 230 but i don’t get ice so would it be more than that?

I asked a friend of mine and here’s what she thinks:

I’d give it a good, solid 300 calories. The only contributor to the caloric value is the sugar; the tea itself contains only a fraction of a calorie, and isn’t worth mentioning.

It would really be nice if you can let me know what you think regarding my Sweet Iced Tea Calories question.

You’re right about what the website says. The same thing is posted on the Livestrong website:
There are 230 calories in the McDonald’s Sweet Tea.

As their website says 230 calories; they aren’t allowed to put false nutrition facts. Also, ice is only a frozen form of water than contains no calories itself. So get yourself some ice if you choose to still drink them, even though i wouldn’t recommend it, there’s nothing worse than a warm beverage 😛

well taking into consideration the amount of ice they give you in a sweet tea, i would say your friend is right. Around 300 calories per 32 oz, it would contain about 80 grams of sugar. since each gram of sugar is 3.75 calories i figure that 80×3.75 would give you your 300 calories.
