Arby’s Jalapeño Bites, more commonly known as Jalapeño Poppers, are spicy jalapeño peppers cut in halves stuffed with melted cream cheese, then battered and deep fried until golden brown.
Jalapeño Bites come in 5-piece and 8-piece servings which contain 350 and 530 calories, respectively. They also include a side of Bronco Berry Sauce which adds 90 calories and 22 grams of carbs.
Although delicious on their own, the jalapeno poppers really pair well with the chain’s Bronco Berry Sauce or their Ranch dressing. However, the buttermilk ranch dressing adds another 210 calories and 22 grams of fat.
So just do yourself a favor and eat them without the dressing or the Bronco Berry Sauce.
If you wanted to burn the calories in a 5 piece serving of Jalapeno Bites, it would take about an hour of low-impact aerobics, according to the MayoClinic.org.
