Equivalent of 68 Pieces Of Bacon: In the Form Of A Milkshake

Timeline

It turns out the PB&C shake at Cold Stone contains more than just milk, peanut butter and chocolate. The artery-busting concoction has enough saturated fat to rival nearly 70 strips of bacon, topping a new study by Men's Health on the 20 worst drinks in America for the second straight year.

When purchased in its "Gotta Have It" size, the shake has 2,010 calories, 10 calories more than the recommended daily allowance for a 125-pound woman and just 790 calories short of what a 175-pound man should ingest in a day.

"In terms of saturated fat, drinking this Cold Stone catastrophe is like slurping up 68 strips of bacon," the magazine reported, noting that saturated fat intake should be capped at around 20 grams.

The shake also comes with 153 grams of sugar, the equivalent of 30 chocolate chip cookies, according to the magazine.

Cold Stone's shake beat out the McDonald's Triple Thick Chocolate Shake and a pair of Starbucks drinks, including the vanilla frappuccino, with sugar content equal to 32 Nilla wafers.

Perhaps Paul is a reformed character and is performing a service by rasing awareness as to the detrimental effects of ingesting sugar and fat in such mindblowing proportions?

Hey, I never said it wasn't stupid to do such a thing.

The only thing I believe is if someone wants to be this stupid, let them.

The problem, as always, is that many people are not aware that what they are doing is stupid or dangerous. Who would have thought that a drink would be available that would contain enough calories to sustain a person for a complete day? Did you know that before you read about it? Or, did you simply suspect that some of these types of drinks might be a bit overloaded in calories? The difference between having the right information and a guestimate can completely change the outcome of some behaviours.

So, if you want a large shake, you have to say "I'd like a Gotta Have It shake"? What marketing genius came up with this? I just love how nothing can be called by its proper name anymore. Used cars are now pre-owned or "certified" cars. Jesse James is a victim instead of a piece of garbage. Jaguar is pronounced Jag-you-are. And on, and on, and on. Ugh. Gag me with a spoon.

I'm one who has always taken an interest in the things I eat, and I take what it is I'm consuming into consideration for the day, week, etc..

Good for you, so do I but even I would not have guessed it had that many calories off hand.

the most devastating one I found out about (and miss) was the Chili's Awesome Blossom:

2,710 calories

203 g fat 194 g carbs

6,360 mg sodium

Who knew a beautiful giant onion blossom could be so bad for you :(

You found out because this sort of information is more readily available because of campaigns to give consumers more information, not because it is something you can just know. That amount of salt on a regular basis is lethal.

the key here is regular basis.

A treat here and there isn't going to kill ya.

It's those who feel the needs to eat greasy/fatty foods 365 a year that are the problem...

Such foods, and I use this term loosely would hardly constitute a 'treat' from my perspective. However again, there are two pertinent points, this sort of detailed information about fast food products has not always been readily available, and not everyone even today is magically aware that they should investigate the nutritional content, or lack thereof of what are to many considered every day foods.

The thing that amuses me is that in many places for the past decade (or longer in some cases) the information has been readily available on large posters in establishments and i know a couple of places that dare to put it on the menu for you to see and the trends have not changed.

The new law that went into effect requires establishments with over 20 locations to put calorie content next to the picture of the menu item... I seriously doubt that will help much either...
