Milkshake Anyone?


Thanks Melanie for forwarding this on to me. I always check my email right when I wake up (a bad habit) and I almost lost my appetite for breakfast! “20 Worst Drinks in America 2010” and the picture above is of the Cold Stone Creamery’s PB&C (Gotta Have It size, 24 fl oz) boasting a whopping 2,010 calories, 131g fat (68g sat fat) & 153g sugar! That’s like eating all the above Chewy Chips Ahoy cookies at once, or 68 strips of bacon. Personally I’d eat all the bacon it’d be healthier for you, at least you get some protein. It’s no wonder that America is the fattest country in the world. Granted you have to walk into the ice cream shop in the first place to even be offered this, one would asked why you are going into an ice cream shop, it’s far from Paleo right now! Take a look at the rest of the items in the slide show you’ll be surprised at what else shows up there. Sobe’s Green Tea & Starbuck’s Vanilla Frappuccino, maybe you’re not surprised that they are on the list but I was surprised as to what they are equivalent too. But where does it end? The state has put a “sin” tax on candy and soda pop, what about putting a larger tax on companies that sell this deliciousness to people. I wonder how many diabetics are created everyday because of these drinks???
