Worst Drink In America WINNER > Cold Stone Creamery, which in the 24 oz. (aka "gotta have it") size contains 2,010 calories, 131 g fat (68 g saturated) and 153 g sugars.

Only days after the Center for Science in the Public Interest ruined everyone's dinner plans with their list of the worst meals available at U.S. restaurants, the muscle-bound dudes over at Men's Health Magazine have released their own list of the worst drinks in America.

Topping the list is the PB&C shake from Cold Stone Creamery, which in the 24 oz. (aka "gotta have it") size contains 2,010 calories, 131 g fat (68 g saturated) and 153 g sugars. The Men's Health people put it in perspective, equating one shake to 30 Chewy Chips Ahoy Cookies and claiming it has as much saturated fat as 68 strips of bacon.

Also on the Men's Health Worst Drink list:

* Smoothie King Peanut Power Plus Grape (large, 40 fl oz):
1,498 calories; 44 g fat (8 g saturated); 214 g sugars

* McDonald’s Triple Thick Chocolate Shake (large, 32 fl oz):
1,160 calories; 27 g fat (16 g saturated, 2 g trans); 168 g sugars

* Krispy Kreme Lemon Sherbet Chiller (20 fl oz):
980 calories; 40 g fat (36 g saturated); 115 g sugars

* Baskin-Robbins Ice Cream Soda (vanilla ice cream and cola) (large, 28.6 fl oz):
960 calories; 40 g fat (25 g saturated, 1.5 g trans); 136 g sugars

To see all 20 belly-busting beverages on the list, head over to Men's Health.

      It doesn't hurt to indulge yourself now and then. I don't think your health is at risk unless you have one of these everyday along with the 68 slices of bacon. Big Grin

    OK, I can see y'all really want one of these shakes, so I gotcha the real scoop - but I can't guarantee that you won't gain weight or add cholesterol just reading the ingredient list!

    Here are all the choices:

    Our shakes are made with only the freshest ingredients. We start with our “made fresh daily” ice cream and add mix-ins. We then blend, pour and serve. You can create your own shake choosing from a combination of your favorite ice cream and a variety of tempting mix-ins, or you can choose from the list below:

    Oh Fudge! - Chocolate Ice Cream, Skim Milk & Fudge Syrup
    Very Vanilla - French Vanilla Ice Cream, Skim Milk & Caramel
    Savory Strawberry - Strawberry Ice Cream, Skim Milk & Strawberries
    Milk & Cookies - Sweet Cream Ice Cream, Skim Milk & OREO Cookies
    Cream de Menthe - Mint Ice Cream, Skim Milk & Chocolate Shavings
    Lotta Caramel Latte - Coffee Ice Cream, Skim Milk & Caramel
    PB&C - Chocolate Ice Cream, Skim Milk & Peanut Butter
    Cherry Cheeseshake - Cheesecake Ice Cream, Skim Milk & Cherry Pie Filling
    Cake ‘n Shake - Cake Batter Ice Cream, Skim Milk & Yellow Cake Pieces


    And here's a link to the nutritional information if you want to know that stuff, too - http://www.coldstonecreamery.c....._09_08.pdf

    They don't call the sizes small, medium and large. They're "Like It," "Love It," and "Gotta Have It."

      Bet they even haven't heard of anything called "skim milk"
