Do you want the calorie count on your restaurant menu?

NEW YORK (AP) - Calorie counts are popping up on some restaurant menus and for prepared foods at supermarkets, whether you want to see them or not.

A federal regulation requiring food sellers to post the nutrition numbers by Friday was postponed again this week until next year. That followed years of delays amid opposition from pizza chains, convenience stores and grocers, where people still may not see the counts.

Many chains like Kroger that had been scrambling to comply say they don't plan to change course at this point.

New York City and some other places already require restaurant chains to post calorie counts, but the federal rule would make them more widely available.
