2,000 Calorie Milkshake Named America’s Unhealthiest Drink

by Laura Roberts

Just one drink equals the recommended daily total calorie intake for women and falls only just short of the 2,500 daily allowance for men.

The Cold Stone PB&C is made with chocolate ice cream, milk and peanut butter. It contains 2,010 calories, 131 grams of fat – 68 grams of which is saturated – and 153 grams of sugar.

It topped the Men’s Health 20 Worst Drinks in America 2010 list, beating a McDonald’s Triple Thick Chocolate Milkshake to the post.

“In terms of saturated fat, drinking this Cold Stone catastrophe is like slurping up 68 strips of bacon,” the magazine report found.

“Health experts recommend capping your saturated fat intake at about 20 grams per day, yet this beverage packs more than three times that into a cup…”

Jamie Oliver, the chef who recently made a television programme about tackling unhealthy eating habits in America, said: “There are no words.”

The drink is sold in Marina Del Rey, California – where most local residents are known for their health conscious diets – and is most popular with tourists.

Christopher Fields, 45, from Hammond, Indiana, said: “It’s delicious. I would definitely have it again.”

When told how many calories the drink contains he said: “I don’t care.

“I’d drink it without difficulty. I’d probably have it once a week.”

The Eat This, Not That Men’s Health column claimed the second worst drink in America is the Peanut Power Plus Grape from Smoothie King. A large cup is worth roughly 1,500 calories.

The McDonald’s Triple Thick Chocolate Shake comes in third. A large cup of that is worth 1,160 calories or the equivalent of 13 McDonald’s apple pies.
